The season finale for The Mandalorian season two now includes a tribute to the late Jeremy Bulloch, the actor who originally portrayed bounty hunter Boba Fett.
The Mandalorian season two finished in style in December 2020 but there was also sad news for Star Wars fans as it was learned that original Boba Fett actor Jeremy Bulloch passed away on the 17th.
Jeremy Bulloch was the man under the iconic suit in the original trilogy and Mandalorian season two featured the return of Boba Fett all these years later, played by Jango Fett actor from the prequels’ Temuera Morrison.
The season two finale of the series now includes a tribute to Bulloch in the credits. Boba Fett remains a hugely popular character in the Star Wars universe and is even getting his own spin-off series in December 2021, The Book of Boba Fett.
Bulloch first played the famous role of Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back, later reprising the role for Return of the Jedi.
The Mandalorian season two sees the returning Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin), Gina Carano (Cara Dune), Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon), Bill Burr (Mayfield), and Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand) joined by the likes of Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones), Katee Sackhoff (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Michael Biehn (The Terminator), Rosario Dawson (Daredevil), and WWE Superstar Sasha Banks.
