Temuera Morrison confirms The Book of Boba Fett is done filming and discusses his experiences meeti
That's a wrap for The Mandalorian spinoff show The Book of Boba Fett.
Speaking to SFX Magazine, Boba Fett actor Temuera Morrison confirmed the series is done filming. "It was quite difficult because of Covid," he added. "You walk on set and you hear, 'Shields down! Shields down!' So we have to air those studios out every 20 minutes. It's called a purge, so you know you've got a toilet break then. There's a lot to shoot in one day, but with health and safety and the requirements it filters out a lot of the bullshit, put it that way."
The notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett first appeared in The Story of the Faithful Wookie, a cartoon short that aired as part of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special in 1978. He made the jump to live-action two years later in The Empire Strikes Back, where he was played by Jeremy Bulloch. In 2002, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones revealed Boba was actually a clone of Morrison's Jango Fett, the bounty hunter who served as the basis for the Galactic Republic's clone army. Morrison would go on to play an older Boba in 2020's The Mandalorian Season 2, setting the stage for the character's spinoff.
Morrison revealed he met Bulloch on multiple occasions prior to his death in Dec. 2020 and would frequently greet him by playfully crying "Who's your daddy?" when the pair crossed paths. "We did many conventions together," Morrison added, "me and Jeremy and Daniel [Logan, who played the young Boba in Attack of the Clones], the three of us together. So I knew him and his wife Margaret. God bless his soul for what he gave us."
While plot details are under-wraps, The Book of Boba Fett will center on the eponymous bounty hunter and Fennec Shand, a fellow mercenary and assassin who owes Boba a life debt. With The Mandalorian Season 3 not expected to arrive until late 2022, the Boba Fett spinoff will reportedly serve as "The Mandalorian Season 2.5" in the meantime.
The Book of Boba Fett stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. The series premieres on Disney+ in December 2021.
