Star Wars fans were met with exciting news last week. Word broke out that Temuera Morrison would be reprising his role as Boba Fett in the second season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, fulfilling the Star Wars fanbase's hope that the Mandalorian bounty hunter would appear in the critically-acclaimed Star Wars series.
Now, a new theory suggests that Morrison won't just be playing Boba Fett – he'll be playing Jango Fett too.
According to Screen Rant, a Star Wars comic that's recently been booted out of continuity offers the idea that Jango Fett may have survived death in the Battle of Geonosis in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. The Star Wars comic titled Tag & Bink Episode I: Revenge of the Clone Menace follows the adventures of Tag and Bink, two clumsy Padawan students.
In one of the issues of the comic book series, Tag and Bink run into Jango Fett at Dex's Diner after accidentally erasing files from the Jedi archives. Jango Fett encourages the padawan to come clean and while the bounty hunter appears friendly at first, he suddenly feels the urge to kill Jedi after the short-order cook in the dinner yells out "order 66!"
Though the comic is supposed to be a parody, it does suggest that Jango Fett may have employed clones to pose as himself throughout the galaxy far, far away. Why would this version of Jango be affected by "order 66" when he was the template for the Clone army, not one of the clones trained by Palpatine?
Screen Rant suggests that it may be possible that the Jango Fett that died in Attack of the Clones was also simply a clone of Jango, not the bounty hunter himself. If so, then that means that Boba Fett's real father is still somewhere out there in the galaxy far, far away.
