Well, you can’t make a show about a Mandalorian without including the most famous guy to ever wear the armor. Famed bounty Boba Fett, who was killed-off in Return of the Jedi but grew incredibly popular in the decades since due to appearances in novels, comics, and video games, will play a role in season 2 of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian. And in a piece of casting that will bring a smile to the face of anyone who appreciates continuity, he’ll be played by Temuera Morrison, who took on the role of Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

At 1:30, it is essentially a shortened version of the WonderCon footage that was shown off not long ago. But there are a few new bits sprinkled here and there in this edit. and it is good to see that Green Lantern looks like a properly cosmic, more than a little bit weird movie to rival the two Marvel films hitting this summer.
