Over the course of two seasons so far — Season 3 is currently filming with the likes of Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon), Katee Sackhoff (Bo-Katan Kryze), Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin), and more — The Mandalorian has breathed new life into the Star Wars universe.
During the Season 2 finale episode, “Chapter 16: The Rescue,” showrunner Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni delivered, perhaps, one of the biggest surprises in Star Wars history with the return of Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker (CGI Mark Hamill) during the original trilogy era.
Thanks to de-aging technology, Skywalker was able to take Grogu as his Padawan approximately five years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983). Although we don’t know precisely what the future holds for “Baby Yoda” and his new Jedi Master, we do know that The Mandalorian saga is just beginning.
On December 29, 2021, the “next chapter” in the “Mando-verse,” The Book of Boba Fett, debuted on the Disney+ streaming platform. While initial reception was a bit chilly, Star Wars fans and critics alike are beginning to come around after the second episode aired.
“Yes, full of surprises. The Book of Boba ‘full of surprises’ series,” Morrison quipped. “Yeah, we’ve got some good stuff coming up. Ooh, wait till episode seven, wow!”
In another recent interview, the actor shared another tease about how shocked fans will be by what is coming:
“Oh, yes. They bring in quite a few, some diverse characters And yes, our audience is going to get some wonderful surprises, and hopefully, they don’t steal the show from me (laughs).”
Although rumors abound that a number of popular Star Wars characters, including Grogu, Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra and Crimson Dawn, Pascal’s Djarin, and Timothy Olyphant’s Marshal Cobb Vanth could show up in The Book of Boba Fett, the biggest potential cameo is, of course, a young Han Solo — CGI, obviously
The rumor of Solo’s return to the Star Wars franchise is bolstered by reports that 79-year-old Harrison Ford spent three days in London filming for a CGI appearance in Favreau and Filoni’s latest series.
However, showrunner Robert Rodriguez and Favreau have yet to confirm any details regarding special appearances by Star Wars fan-favorites, but it seems likely that Solo could be the major cameo in the final episode of Season 1. After all, Fett and the Millennium Falcon pilot have serious history — who could forget the Sarlacc pit?
Who do you think the major Book of Boba Fett Episode 7 cameo is going to be?
