Star Wars fans are ecstatic to see Temuera Morrison take on the role of Boba Fett once again in the upcoming Mandalorian spinoff, The Book of Boba Fett, but the actor will actually be reprising the iconic bounty hunter even sooner than many think. Morrison will be lending his voice to the upcoming Star Wars: Visions series, an anime anthology set to hit Disney+ on September 22nd, and he'll one again be playing Boba Fett. Morrison's Boba Fett will have a role in the episode titled "Tatooine Rhapsody."
Morrison first appeared in the Star Wars universe in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, where he played the bounty hunter known as Jango Fett. Jango was used as the model for the Clone Army, and he requested raise one of those clones as his son, separate from the rest of the military force. That son became Boba Fett. Since Morrison played the man that Boba was originally cloned to be, it made all the sense in the world for Lucasfilm to bring the actor back to play Boba in Star Wars: The Mandalorian's second season.
Of course, Morrison's portrayal of Boba Fett was incredibly popular amongst fans, and it was announced at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2 that the actor would be leading a new series, The Book of Boba Fett. The spinoff is slated to arrive on Disney+ at the end of the year.
