Far North (Season One)

When a Tongan-Australian gang does a deal with one of the biggest drug cartels in the world for half a ton of meth to be smuggled to New Zealand shores, a $500 million fortune awaits them. All they have to do is pick up the drugs.

Their incompetence leads to a series of blunders, invading a small beachfront town and attracting unwanted attention while waiting for the Chinese smugglers. When the smugglers’ boat breaks down, they become stranded with the drugs, and a fixer is sent to salvage the situation. A new plan involving a fake funeral at sea goes awry.

Far North is a saga of screw-ups, as everyday people strive to foil an international drug cartel’s largest-ever drug deal in the Pacific; the cops’ trip themselves up; and gangsters chase a payday withzero discretion – leaving a trail of wreckage you can see from space.

Breaking: Temuera Morrison Joins “Ahsoka” as Captain Rex

It’s confirmed. Temuera has joined the new Disney+ show AHSOKA as Captain Rex. No word as to whether he’ll be playing Rex in current timeline, or in flashbacks. But this news is fantastic. Article below.

Boba Fett Star Temuera Morrison Joins Ahsoka as Clone Wars’ Captain Rex

Temuera Morrison will return to the Star Wars universe in the upcoming Ahsoka Disney+ series playing the first live action version of Captain Rex

Temuera Morrison, who famously played Jango Fett (and his clones) in the Star Wars prequel films, and then recently returnef to take over the role of Boba Fett in Boba Fett’s recent appearances on Star Wars: The Mandalorian and Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, will return to the Star Wars universe in the upcoming Ahsoka Disney+ series playing the first live action version of Captain Rex, a popular animated character who made his debut in the 2008 Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated film.

Dee Bradley Baker had been the only other actor to play Captain Rex before now (Baker voices all of the clone soldiers), with Rex showing up in a number of Star Wars animated series before now, including Star Wars: Rebels, The Bad Batch and Tales of the Jedi.

Who is Captain Rex?

Captain Rex, whose clone designation was CT-7567, was one of the best clone soldiers in the Grand Army of the Republic. He was Anakin Sykwalekr’s “first-in-command,” and he also served alongside Jedi Commander Ashoka Tano. He stood out among the other clones by his buzz cut blonde hair, and the stylized hawk eyes he put on his helmet, as well as some blue markings he put on his armor.

Rex was devoted to his fellow soldiers, and the Republic. He was one of the few clones who chose not to execute Order 66, as his inhibitor chip had been disabled before that point, and obviously he was too noble of a person to take part in such a massacre. He then continued to pop up in various Star Wars series over the years, including showing up older and slightly worse for the wear in Star Wars: Rebels. Fan speculation over the years have theorized that Red was one of the Rebels who helped disable the Death Star’s force field on Endor in Return of the Jedi.

Will Temuera Morrison be playing Rex in flashbacks or in “present day?”

Since Morrison played Jango Fett, the original source of the clones for the Clone army, it is unclear which version of Captain Rex he will be playing. The Ahsoka series will be set after the events of Return of the Jedi (on the same timeline of The Mandalorian), so it is unclear whether Morrison will be playing a “current” version of Rex, or if he will be playing Rex in flashbacks to the time Rex and Ahsoka worked so closely together in the Grand Army of the Republic.

It is also unclear whether Morrison will be playing any other clone characters in the series. Since he was the basis for the clones, it would make sense, but obviously, that was two decades ago, and Morrison is now 62 years old.



Ming Na Wen Says Boba Fett Should Be More Like The Original

Ming Na Wen Says Boba Fett Should Be More Like The Original

In a recent article, Temuera’s THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT co-star has offered her feelings on how Boba should be if the show should get a season two. I have to say while I loved what Tem brought to Boba in both his own show and THE MANDALORIAN, I have to agree about Boba’s character going forwrad. Feel free to read on for what Ming Na had to say.

Boba Fett Should Be More Like The Original Trilogy Version In The Future, Says Star

When asked about a potential Book of Boba Fett season 2, Ming-Na Wen stated the titular character should be more like his original trilogy depiction.

Co-star of The Book of Boba Fett Ming-Na Wen has stated that she thinks Boba should be closer to how he was depicted in the original trilogy in Star Wars‘ future. While no second season of The Book of Boba Fett has been confirmed, the expansion of the New Republic Era under the eyes of Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau means that the notorious bounty hunter-turned-Daimyo has a high chance of appearing again in the future. With The Book of Boba Fett taking the character in a new, honor-based direction, many have wished for a return to the brutal ways of Boba during the original trilogy.

This is a sentiment shared by Ming-Na Wen, who played Fennec Shand in The Book of Boba Fett alongside Temuera Morrison. In an interview with Collider, Wen was asked her thoughts on where she would like to see the characters and story go, should The Book of Boba Fett season 2 be made:

“You know, he’s this Lord now of Tatooine, and he is managing to have some control, but he was trying to do it one way, and I’m not sure how effective it was. He was trying to have a greater honor system, and I would love to see that he turns back to a bit more like what Boba Fett was in also being able to maintain justice, or accomplish what he needs to accomplish on Tatooine.”

As alluded to by Wen, the point of The Book of Boba Fett season 1 was to establish Boba as the Daimyo of Mos Espa. Through this, the complications with Fett’s honor system arose, with Wen rightly noting the fact that this caused problems for him and Fennec that the original trilogy era Boba may not have faced due to his more uncompromising nature.

Can Boba Fett Return To His Roots in A Second Season?

Despite Wen’s wishes, it may be impossible for Boba Fett to fully return to his roots in future Star Wars> stories. One of the best aspects of Boba Fett was his journey with the Tusken Raiders. It was through living among the Tuskens that Fett learned to appreciate having a tribe, somewhere he could belong. Fett then attempted to implement this way of living in Mos Espa, making him a much less bloodthirsty and more honorable character than he was in the original trilogy.

As a result, reverting Boba to how he used to be risks negating the arc he went through in The Book of Boba Fett season 1. That being said, the introduction of other villains for Boba could certainly allow audiences – and Ming-Na Wen, for that matter – to see more of the Boba Fett that was shown in the original trilogy. Through his enemies, Boba could channel the ruthless bounty hunter he used to be as a means of protecting the tribe he created during The Book of Boba Fett season 1.



Temeura Morrison Wants a Captain Rex Spin-Off

Temeura Morrison Wants a Captain Rex Spin-Off

While attending the Supanova Comic-Con in Melbourne, Temuera made his feelings known about wanting to bring Captain Rex to live-action. He also said he’d love to bring all the clones to live-action. I say the more Temuera the merrier. Article below.

Star Wars: Temuera Morrison Wants To Star In A Captain Rex Spinoff

Star Wars: Temuera Morrison Wants To Star In A Captain Rex Spinoff

Temuera Morrison is ready to move beyond playing Boba Fett, Jango Fett, and every Clone Trooper in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. He’s got his sights on something a bit more refined and a lot more grizzled. If the New Zealand actor has his way, there could be a Captain Rex spinoff in the works one of these days.

While Morrison played the clones of Jango Fett in the Star Wars movies, the infinite role went to voice actor Dee Bradley Baker when the stories moved to animation for the series The Clone Wars and others. This included the character of Captain Rex, a clone who managed to get past the impulsive programming of Order 66 and retain his ability to think freely. The character appeared prominently in The Clone Wars and later appeared as a much older version in Star Wars Rebels, still voiced by Baker. But he still hasn’t made his live-action debut, and Morrison sees that as an opportunity.

In an interview with Dexerto at Supanova Comic-Con in Melbourne, Morrison shared his simple pitch. “I’d love to do a Captain Rex [project] of some kind, that would be cool,” he said when asked what other stories he’d like to help tell in the Star Wars universe. “Just to play one of the clones.” Morrison already appeared prominently as Boba Fett in both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. But while there’s still plenty of room for more Boba action, something about the clones keeps him intrigued and willing to return.

“I enjoyed playing that broken-down Clone Trooper in Obi-Wan,” he continued with a chuckle, referring to his cameo as a homeless veteran Clone Trooper in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. “Credits please! That was fun, so something like that would be good, but we’ll see what happens with the powers that be.” The Star Wars clones shared a dark future after the events of The Clone Wars, and there’s a ton of storytelling potential there that would be wonderful to see with Morrison taking part. Sure, The Bad Batch has already explored that aspect of the clones’ tale, but it still has yet to get a proper live-action treatment.

There have been questions about whether Captain Rex will return for the Ahsoka series, particularly given the close camaraderie shared by the two characters in The Clone Wars. Seeing Morrison as the grizzled veteran on-screen would be a welcomed addition. But there have been no hints that he’s been cast in the series, and such things tend to leak. So as fun as that might be, it’s probably wise not to bet on it.

Still, it wouldn’t be the first time Star Wars has kept a perfect secret. Most were surprised to see Morrison make a guest appearance as Boba Fett in The Mandalorian season 2. That’s not even to mention the appearance of Jack Black and Lizzo in the series, which nobody saw coming. Morrison may have already played Rex in some secret way, making him fall in love with the character. So there’s always room for hope. That’s one theme Star Wars loves to explore, after all.



Robert Rodriguez Teases More “The Book of Boba Fett”

Robert Rodriguez Teases More “The Book of Boba Fett”

In a recent article, THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT showrunner and executive producer, Robert Rodriguez, has teased there might be a future for another chapter of the show. We all know Temuera wants to come back, but will this happen? Read the article below.

Robert Rodriguez teases a potential future for ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

2021’s The Book of Boba Fett doesn’t have a great reputation. The core concept of Fett taking over from Jabba the Hutt and becoming Tatooine’s newest mob boss has a ton of potential, though almost all of it was scuppered by a rushed production, unfocused storytelling, and some of the worst action scenes in the history of the franchise.

It’s telling that by far the best episodes of the show barely feature Fett at all, focus on Din Djarin and Grogu, and are essentially a sneaky The Mandalorian season 2.5.

But could The Book of Boba Fett ever return for a second season? Maybe the lessons of the past could be learned and we’d see him reclaim his position as the biggest badass in Star Wars? Heck, maybe for once we’d even see this crime lord commit some crimes! If there is a second season planned, showrunner Robert Rodriguez is keeping his lips sealed as he hinted in an interview with i09.

“I’m sworn to secrecy. I wish I could tell you. I know all the answers to what you’re asking, but I can’t say.”

It seems clear that Temuera Morrison will return as Fett at some point, likely in Dave Filoni’s theatrical movie announced at the Star Wars Celebration. Until then, Rodriguez is just happy to wax lyrical about how much fun it is to step behind the camera and shoot some Star Wars:

“Everything you saw every day… it didn’t feel like you were seeing behind the scenes. It felt so real. The sets were so real. Even the volume was so real that you felt like you were in Star Wars… You know, there’s these’s things called ‘Rock Camp’ that if you want to go play with [Aerosmith guitarist] Joe Perry or something, you pay money to get on stage for two seconds with him? This is what a director would pay money to do. To have Star Wars camp. To get to direct and edit and be part of the Star Wars universe just as an experience is one of my favorite experiences because it was just a dream come true.”

Rodriguez is a great director and should have knocked the dusty, vaguely Western-themed The Book of Boba Fett out of the park. We’re still confused that he fumbled the ball, so a second season where he could right some of these wrongs would be most welcome.

In the meantime, Temuera Morrison is still all over Star Wars, and happy to voice and play Clone Troopers wherever he can, so at least he isn’t going anywhere.
