THE MANDALORIAN: Could Temuera Morrison Play Boba Fett AND Captain Rex In Season 2?

THE MANDALORIAN: Could Temuera Morrison Play Boba Fett AND Captain Rex In Season 2? THE MANDALORIAN: Could Temuera Morrison Play Boba Fett AND Captain Rex In Season 2?

We found out last night that Temuera Morrison had joined the cast of The Mandalorian Season 2 as iconic bounty hunter Boba Fett, but is there a chance he may also play The Clone Wars favorite Captain Rex?

The news that Temuera Morrison (Aquaman, Once Were Warriors) would be playing Boba Fett in the second season of The Mandalorian broke last night, but the internet is now abuzz with a rumor that the Kiwi actor might also be playing Captain Rex.

As any Star Wars fan worth their salt will know, Boba's father Jango's DNA was used to create the clone army of the Republic (later the Empire), which means that Captain Rex would look practically identical to the Morrison's Attack of the Clones character.

Cinelinx's Jordan Maison sent out the following Tweet after THR's original report.

Then, in Nerdist's coverage of the news they mention that reliable sources have indicated that Morrison will indeed pull double-duty as Fett and the loyal clone soldier.

There's not a whole lot to this (yet), but this would be a great opportunity to introduce Rex along with Ahsoka Tano. We first saw The Captain in The Clone Wars before he returned in Star Wars Rebels, and he's been a loyal companion to Anakin Skywalker's former apprentice for many years.

In the recent final season of The Clone Wars, we saw how Tano helped him to retian his free will in the aftermath of Order 66. So, If Rosario Dawson is indeed playing Ahsoka in Season 2 of the Disney+ Star Wars series, it would make sense to see Rex by her side.

This is obviously just a rumor for now, but hopefully we'll get some more details soon. For now, let us know what you think in the usual place.

Clones are supposed to look like clones so why not?

@SonOfAGif - Although Mandalorian takes place not long after Return Of The Jedi and Boba wasn't aged up like the other clones, so shouldnt Boba be young, maybe a little older than Jango was when he died

@dracula - According to the timeline I just looked at, he was 36 when he presumably died in the Sarlacc Pit. If anything, They should have to de-age him.

@dracula - If both Boba Fett and Rex are in Mandalorian, my guess is that they'll have Temuera play Rex and have someone else play Boba Fett while Temuera voices him

@Nebula - you've had a pretty 'explosive' last couple days buddy!!

@Nebula -

Ray Park has also implied we could see Darth Maul in the series, one way or another.

And there are also rumours about the return of Sabine Wren too.

I'm probably in the minority but I've never seen Clone Wars or Rebels, so the Ashoka and Rex news does nothing for me. Nothing I've seen from any of the cartoon star wars shows interste me in the slightest.

@CurlyBill - You should check it out. Clone Wars is probably the best thing to come out of the Prequels (besides ROTS). It has some bad lows, but some really HIGH highs. It expands on Order 66, turns Maul from a generic bad guy into a badass sith seeking revenge, and Ahsoka adds some much needed depth to Anakin.

It also connects to Mandalorian S1 in an interesting way. Check out the essential episode guides if you’re quarantined right now. It’s worth the time :)

That’s awesome. I hope that is true. Rex is such a great character.
