Star Wars fans wondering where Boba Fett has been might want to keep their eyes on The Mandalorian Season 3. The last time Morrison’s Fett was on screen was for his solo Disney+ outing, The Book of Boba Fett, though many have been left to wonder whether he will present for the third installment of The Mandalorian. New footage for the returning series was recently released by Lucasfilm, and it gave fresh glimpses at Grogu kicking ass with the force, a possible Sabine sighting, a trip to Coruscant, and more. However, there was a curious new scene that doesn’t seem to have gotten enough attention, which continues a tradition set by The Mandalorian as well as hints at Fett’s return.
Catching Up with Boba FettStar Wars
Continuing a trend from past seasons, The Mandalorian will officially return to Tatooine in Season 3, as revealed by a brief scene in the most recent trailer. The sequence showed Mando returning to the iconic sandy planet, as evidenced by Din Djarin’s N-1 Starfighter taking off from Peli Motto’s workshop. The last time viewers were there, however, another familiar character had taken up a powerful local leadership position: Boba Fett. So, did the new teaser actually set up the return of Temuera Morrison’s armored antihero?

As Boba Fett has been present in both previous seasons of The Mandalorian in some form, it would seem reasonable to assume that another return to Tatooine indicates that his re-appearance is a likely one. Temuera Morrison has also been shown to be willing to crossover into other shows briefly, as demonstrated by his small cameo in Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Book of Boba Fett alsoleft a number of plot threads up in the air. As the show managed to tie up the loose ends of The Mandalorian Season 2’s finale, it may be possible that the third season may pay Fett back by following up on some of his solo plots.
