“Battlestar Gallactica” favourite Katee Sackhoff is bringing her version of Bo-Katan Kryze, a Mandalorian warrior she voiced in animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels”, to life!
The actress has been confirmed by Slash Film to play the character in the upcoming second season of “The Mandalorian”, which is currently in post-production.
Per the report:
Bo-Katan first appeared in season 4 of the Star Wars animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The character was a Mandalorian warrior – a lieutenant in the radical splinter group Death Watch, second-in-command to the group’s leader, Pre Vizsla. When Maul took possession of the Darksaber, executed Vizla, and took the throne of Mandalore, Bo-Katan refused to accept the outsider as her new leader. She was instrumental in recruiting the Jedi and the Republic to lay siege to Mandalore and oust Maul. Later in Star Wars Rebels, Sabine Wren chose to pass the infamous weapon to Bo-Katan, believing that she could unite the Mandalorian clans.
Meanwhile, Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in “Star Wars : Attack of the Clones”, will play son Boba Fett in season two of the Disney+ Star Wars series.
Interestingly enough, the younger Fett was supposed to have died in the sarlacc pit in 1983’s “Return of the Jedi”. His surprise ‘resurrection’ was teased on “The Mandalorian” last season when a mysterious figure sporting the bounty hunter’s trademark spurs approached the apparently lifeless body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).
There’s always the possibility that – since Bobba was said to be a clone of his father, himself a clone – that this new Boba is a clone, too. Or something…
The second season of “The Mandalorian” is expected to bow in October.
