Temuera Morrison Shares Insight Into Star Wars Spin-Off ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

Star Wars fans were given a taste of the upcoming spin-off of ‘The Mandalorian’ which showed actor Temuera Morrison reprise his role as a bounty hunter for the upcoming Disney Plus show ‘The Book of Boba Fett.’
Morrison recently sat down with Rotten Tomatoes where he gave some clues into the upcoming LucasFilm series, including how Boba Fett’s experiences prior to ‘The Mandalorian’ will be explored as part of the plot.
“Well, we can’t say too much, but we’re going to see his past and where he’s been since ‘The Empire Strikes Back’,” the ‘Couples Retreat’ actor said. “Somebody pointed out he’s been kind of stuck in this one place, and now’s the time to actually go back in time and check out his journey and find out more about him.”
‘The Beautiful Country’ actor discussed working with ‘Spy Kids’ director Robert Rodriguez who is not only executive producing ‘The Book of Boba Fett,’ but will return to direct.
“So this was an opportunity again, to work with Robert Rodriguez, who gave it a little bit of an edge,” he explained. “And I think Robert’s ability was to sort of make a good point of making this guy explode. After it, Jon Favreau come up to me and just said, ‘Congratulations, the fans loved it.’”
“But yeah, that was the advantage for me, was that we hadn’t seen him do much,” Morrison continued. “And along with Robert Rodriguez as director, we were able to sort of introduce him in a dynamic way, bring him back in a dynamic way alongside the Mandalorian. It was just an honor to be asked back.”
Morrison described the difficulty of working around pandemic safety measures but that they worked with “some wonderful directors.”
“I just hope I meet the expectations, because you can somehow kind of feel those things,” he said. “You asked me that question earlier about ‘Occupation’ – could you feel or sense anything, but definitely on ‘The Book of Boba,’ you can get more of a sense and a feeling for if it’s working or not.”
‘The Book of Boba Fett’ is set to premiere in December 2021 on the Disney Plus streaming service. ‘Mulan’ actress Ming-Na Wen is set to reprise her role as the bounty hunter Fennec Shand.
