The Mandalorian Season 2 officially confirmed that Boba Fett is still alive and well after that fateful fall directly to the Sarlacc pit in Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. But what if I told you that Fett was originally supposed to make his grand Star Wars comeback as early as Season 1? A new set of conceptual artwork from The Mandalorian's first season seems to prove that claim and you'll be blown away.
The good folks over at io9 have released several images from the upcoming The Art of The Mandalorian (Season 1) book which is set to hit shelves on December 1. The book contains concept art from the first season, including Mando's costume and an early design for the Razor Crest. However, the most interesting bit from the released photos is an artwork that shows The Child aka Baby Yoda wearing Fett's iconic helmet. It's obviously hinting at Fett's supposed appearance in Season 1 and it's interesting why Lucasfilm and Jon Favreau decided to turn the idea down.
So far, Boba Fett has only made one appearance in The Mandalorian Season 2 and we still don't know when exactly he returns as the show seems to be focusing more on what's important — Mando finding Baby Yoda's kind and the eventual debut of Ahsoka Tano. Make no mistake though, Temuera Morrison's franchise comeback will leave a lasting impact on the show and we'll just have to wait and see when he pops up again.
The Mandalorian Season 2 is now streaming on Disney+.
