It seems like maybe one more character from The mandalorian is set to appear in Boba Fett’s book. That is, assuming a recently revealed production crew t-shirt is created. Very little is currently known about the upcoming Star Wars series, only that it is in the works for Disney + and that Boba Fett, played by Temuera Morrison, will finally get a chance to be the center of attention in a solo project. But thanks to the jersey in question, we could have learned a crucial detail. Or it could be Lucasfilm putting a popular character on a shirt.
Warning: possible spoilers later for Boba Fett’s book. Proceed with caution. Recently, thanks to a post by Herderofnerf on the Star Wars Leaks Reddit page, a crew t-shirt was revealed that was given to members of the production team during filming of the show. The main image on the back says “Buccaneer season 1”, with Boba Fett underneath doing his thing. It also says “Legacy Effects Creature Crew,” indicating who these shirts belonged to. But it’s a small image on the front worth raising an eyebrow for. Specifically, we can see none other than Grogu, aka Baby Yoda, right on the chest of the shirt.
Before we dive into the speculation here, it’s important to note that this is by no means confirmation. But it is an official shirt made by Lucasfilm specifically for this show. It would seem strange to put a character on the shirt that has nothing to do with the show. So this could be a “where there is smoke, there is also fire” situation. But for now we still have to treat it as a rumor until more evidence emerges.
That said, this would be an interesting development, if not entirely surprising. Grogu, from the moment he appeared on the screen, became a Star Wars fan favorite. Getting him some more screen time would be a no-brainer. But we know Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, the producers of The mandalorian who are working on this program with Robert Rodríguez, they are not going to do it without good reason. That begs the question, why would Grogu cross paths with Boba Fett again?
The last time we dropped off the little green alien, Mando was handing him over to Luke Skywalker in The mandalorian season 2 finale. Presumably, Luke was on his way to train him in the ways of the Force. So making Grogu return to the iconic bounty hunter would carry certain implications. Either the little boy was separated from Luke, or possibly we would see more of the beloved Jedi. Either way, this is an intriguing development. Boba Fett’s book It is currently scheduled to arrive in December on Disney +. We will make sure to keep you informed as more details become available. This news comes to us through Reddit.
