Many fans theorized that the closing moments of The Mandalorian‘s season 1 episode, “The Gunslinger” hinted at Boba Fett appearing in a future episode, but that cameo or appearance did not occur during the first season. The connection is obvious, as the famed bounty hunter is known for his Mandalorian armor, but by this time in the story, he was presumed dead, swallowed by a sarlacc in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. The Mandalorian takes place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, meaning Boba Fett might be more resilient than we thought.
The first season of The Mandalorian began in November, starring such actors as Pedro Pascal, Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, Gina Carano, and Amy Sedaris. The second season is currently scheduled for release later this year, but it remains to be seen if that will be possible with the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.
