Rumor: ‘The Book Of Boba Fett’ To Include An Appearance From Din Djarin

It’s time for a little bit of rumor-trafficking, and other than Marvel there’s nothing better for that than Star Wars, and the future of a certain Mandalorian caretaker of a baby Yoda. A new report from Cinelinx says Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin will make an appearance in the upcoming Book of Boba Fett series on Disney+.

On the surface that doesn’t seem too much of a stretch. The new show, which hails from Robert Rodriguez, Jon Favreau, and Dave Filoni, has its origins in The Mandalorian. Temuera Morrison, who played Boba Fett in that series, will reprise the role. It was during a post-credits scene after the season two finale that we saw Fett essentially take over the criminal empire left behind by Jabba the Hutt.

So take this with a grain of salt. It’s not that this is a rumor that seems unlikely, it’s just not confirmed or anything. I for one would be surprised if Din Djarin didn’t show up at some point.  For that matter, I expect there to be a lot of character crossover between the shows, with perhaps Bo-Katan and Ahsoka Tano getting into the mix, as well.
