THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT Star Temuera Morrison Still Isn't Happy THE MANDALORIAN "Stole An Episode Of My Show"

The Book of Boba Fett star Temuera Morrison has made it clear The Mandalorian owes him one for hijacking the spin-off, while Emily Swallow reveals much of her dialogue was changed as The Armorer...

Boba Fett made his long-awaited return in The Mandalorian, and the show's second season concluded with a post-credits scene setting the stage for The Book of Boba Fett

Unfortunately, that series was widely considered a disappointment by fans, though an episode devoted to The Mandalorian - which included appearances from Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano - massively overshadowed the titular bounty did Din Djarin!

Talking at the recent MCM Comic Con London (via Yahoo! News), Boba Fett actor Temuera Morrison (who has been critical of The Mandalorian's invasion of The Book of Boba Fett) said he believes the favour now needs to be repaid. 

"I would actually like my character to visit The Mandalorian, the Mando fort or something, and come in there and kick some real serious ass as well," he told fans. "The way he did and came into my show, and stole an episode of my show - so I'd like to do the same thing."

As of now, The Mandalorian isn't getting a fourth season; The Mandalorian and Grogu movie is on the way, though, and it could be there that we see more of Fett. 

At the same event, The Armorer actress Emily Swallow (via Popverse) confirmed that major changes were made to her dialogue in The Book of Boba Fett during post-production. 

"My episode of The Book of Boba Fett, I spend three or four hours in an ADR session - which, if you don’t know, stands for Additional Dialogue Recording, and it's when you have to record stuff after you’ve already shot it - because they changed so many of the lines," she revealed. "Which you can do when you can’t see somebody’s mouth open."

There were some telltale signs in the Disney+ series that it might have gone through some changes; many fans even believe Din Djarin and Grogu were added to the spin-off because the story was so weak without them. 

Morrison was recently asked about working with Fennec Shand actress Ming-Na Wen and shared their dashed hopes to continue teaming up. "Both her and I wanted to work pretty hard in the hope that they might carry on [and] do a 2 and a 3 and a 4 and a 5 and a 6 and a 7," the actor revealed.

"I've been trying to nudge them in that direction too," he said when asked about the show's possible return. "It needs more nudging, but anyway..."

Whether Morrison's Boba Fett will get another solo series remains to be seen. Unfortunately, with Disney cutting streaming costs, it's unlikely there are plans to put the spotlight back on the iconic Star Wars character in a follow-up to The Book of Boba Fett.

Boba Fett had an entire story arc in The Mandalorian where he kicked some serious ass. But I guess he wants an episode dedicated just to Boba Fett in The Mandalorian.

@SonOfAGif - Not even close to being the same thing.

In Mandalorian, Fett was a guest star, and certainly the high point of one episode. But it was still Mando’s episode. Mando brought Grogu to Tython, Mando was trying to communicate with a Jedi. Mando was trying to protect Grogu during this task, first against Fett, then against the Empire. Mando’s child is taken.

Mando is still the main character, and driving force of the episode; no matter how awesome Fett was.

In Book Of Boba, an entire episode has Zero footage of Boba Fett. In his own show. It became the season premier of Mandalorian’s next season, stuck right in the middle of a different show. Never mind Mandi being a guest star, Fett was not even present during the whole dang episode.

That’s just disrespectful to the character, and to Temuera.

Boba deserves a second season to right the wrongs they did. And led by people not trying to hold the character back. It kills me in the Behind/Scenes you have Favreau saying “you can’t just have Boba being a badass.” But they took that too far and had him do nothing! Meanwhile, Mando beheads a guy in his opening scene.

I’d be a lil peeved too if I was Temuera.

The Mando episode of BOBF was the only watchable episode of that 💩 pile.
Goldboink - 7/9/2024, 3:21 PM
@mountainman -
Wait, there was that one episode where, well, yea, I guess you are right.
mountainman - 7/9/2024, 3:47 PM
@Goldboink - Even the supposedly cool moment of Boba riding a Rankor was brought down by all the other goofy elements of that finale.
Goldboink - 7/9/2024, 3:56 PM
@mountainman -
I liked the finale episode OK, even the Mods (cough cough). It was a bone they threw to Rodriguez 'cause he was so into Boba Fett. It did have some goofy SW type stuff in it but good for me. Most of the rest of it though, damn.
Fogs - 7/9/2024, 3:56 PM
@mountainman - I just clicked to make that very same comment.

Even if it undid the great Mando S2 ending, compared to the shitshow that was BoBF, it was great.
mountainman - 7/9/2024, 4:03 PM
@Fogs - Reversing the Mando S2 finale so quickly was a travesty, but it’s still miles better than the rest of that show.
mountainman - 7/9/2024, 4:04 PM
@Goldboink - I don’t know if the Mods or that goofy mayor’s assistant were the worst part. Or that Boba was the worst war lord of all time.
BlackStar25 - 7/9/2024, 4:27 PM
@mountainman - I have a love/hate about those episodes. I really hated how quick they folded in bring back Grogu so damn quick. Was looking forward to seeing Mando by himself.
mountainman - 7/9/2024, 4:30 PM
@BlackStar25 - Oh that plot point was dumb for sure. Would have been better to have Grogu stay with Luke for longer.

But…Disney needs their cute merchandising opportunities. They know that the combination of Pascal (even though he’s essentially a voice actor in this show) and a cute baby “Yoda” are the recipe for the female audience tuning in.

@mountainman -
The wife bailed in the first episode. I gutted it out.
mountainman - 7/9/2024, 5:24 PM
@Goldboink - My wife is even more checked out of Star Wars than I am, which is saying something. I had never mentioned anything about the Acolyte to her, we hadn’t talked about it at all, but I remember when the first 2 episodes came out she came to me and said “this looks like shit”.

I heard today that the most recent episode had a 75% drop in viewing time from week 1. That is not good.
PC04 - 7/9/2024, 3:08 PM
The majority of Boba Fett was pure ass. The Mando episode helped prop up the series. I get what he's saying but,dude you didn't have a good show.
TheVisionary25 - 7/9/2024, 5:01 PM
@PC04 - regardless of how you felt about it..

it still sucks for him to have finally have gotten a lead focus after being in the franchise for so long only for another character to take over the focus for 2 episodes or so.
GaruVonDoom - 7/9/2024, 3:09 PM
Adorable and ungrateful, the Mandalorian-skewed episodes were the only tolerable outings from that primitively directed failure of a series.
WakandaTech - 7/9/2024, 3:12 PM
In other words

"That could of been in season 2 now I don't get to get paid"
bobevanz - 7/9/2024, 3:16 PM
Ugh that show was so bad, and the slow motion speeder chase. Plus we already knew how the series would go lol

Also this! Back to the glory days for Raimi yaaay
DravenCorvis - 7/9/2024, 3:16 PM
The Mandalorian related episodes were the only good ones for that show.
TheVisionary25 - 7/9/2024, 3:27 PM
Didn’t he already technically do that in Mando S2 in the episode that reintroduced him?.

I get what he means though and certainly understand his apparent grievance…

I personally thought TBOBF was decent (though flawed) so I wouldn’t mind another season honestly as long as they improve upon it.
Slotherin - 7/9/2024, 7:26 PM
@TheVisionary25 - as someone pointed out though Mando still was relevant in the episode Boba showed up in...
Boba wasn't even in the episode of his show when Mando took over.
TheVisionary25 - 7/9/2024, 7:36 PM
@Slotherin - oh I agree

Mando took over for 2 episodes pretty much and Boba appeared once with no lines

I’m just saying he already came in and stole the show in that Mando episode imo.
Slotherin - 7/9/2024, 9:31 PM
@TheVisionary25 - he def stole the show but at least Mando still got to have prominence.
TheVisionary25 - 7/9/2024, 9:41 PM
@Slotherin - yes agreed

The best part of the show imo was the Tusken Raider stuff.
Origame - 7/9/2024, 3:27 PM
In fairness, no one knew why we were getting an episode of Mando in book of Boba fett.
KaptainKhaos - 7/9/2024, 3:30 PM
They stole two episodes and made Book of Boba Fett actually watchable
KaptainKhaos - 7/9/2024, 3:31 PM
Hot Take: The Acolyte with all it's faults is still better than Book of Boba Fett
S8R8M - 7/9/2024, 3:36 PM
The series was so bad that we needed an episode of Mando checking into a flight, enjoying the flight and returning.
MrDandy - 7/9/2024, 3:40 PM
It stole two episodes. The entire series felt like a demand by producers and no one had any desire to work on it or find a story.
FireandBlood - 7/9/2024, 3:41 PM
@MrDandy - This 👆🏾

The theme tune slapped tho
MrDandy - 7/9/2024, 3:40 PM
Also the Mandalorian episodes were the best part of the whole show lol
FireandBlood - 7/9/2024, 3:42 PM
I liked it enough, but it was weak.
TheMetaMan - 7/9/2024, 3:43 PM
I’m in the minority when I say i really enjoyed the show actually until mando and grogu took over and it turned into season 2.5 of the mandalorian. What a weird thing to do by Disney. It really shows contempt for the character of boba. Morrison’s remark is justified. Regardless I still really liked this show, it’s disappointing to me that it won’t get renewed for a second season.
