Katee Sackhoff & Temuera Morrison Join The Cast Of ”The Mandalorian” Season 2

If season 2 of Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian cast gets any bigger there will be no way to contain the crazy awesomeness of its sophomore season.

We already know we will be learning more about the origins of Baby Yoda and will be getting Rosario Dawson as Clone Wars fan-favorite character, Ahsoka Tano, but now we got two more Mandalorians joining the cast as well. Actors Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, Clone Wars) and Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Aquaman) are joining the cast as two familiar faces to the Star Wars Universe.

Sackhoff will be playing a live-action version of Bo-Katan Kryze, a Mandalorian warrior she previously voiced in Dave Filoni’s animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and later Star Wars Rebels.

Bo-Katan made her debut in season 4 of Clone Wars, which just had its series finale. The character has been instrumental in a lingering plotline involving the Darksaber in both the storylines of Clone Wars and Rebels. In the latter series, it’s Sabine Wren who hands over the Darksaber to Bo-Katan so that she can bring the Mandalorians together. The Darksaber is seen at the end of the first season finale of The Mandalorian, now in the hands of villain Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito). 

Morrison, who played Jango Fett in 2002’s Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, will appear in season two of the Disney+ Star Wars series as Boba Fett, the famed bounty hunter who first appeared on the big screen in 1980’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and who seemingly died in 1983’s Return of the Jedi as he fell into a sarlacc pit.

Boba Fett is expected to play just a small role in season two of the series, after the character was teased in the season one episode “The Gunslinger,” when a mysterious figure sporting the bounty hunter’s trademark spurs approached the apparently lifeless body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).

The Mandalorian season two is slated to bow in October on Disney+. It will feature other series newcomer including actor Michael Biehn and directors such as Alita: Battle Angel‘s Robert Rodriguez and Ant-Man‘s Peyton Reed.
