Temuera Morrison may have confirmed that Ewoks will appear in The Book of Boba Fett. In a recent video from Buzzfeed, he and Ming-Na Wen were given a series of questions to see which Star Wars villain they are most like. One of them included a picture of an Ewok, and when looking at it, Temuera Morrison said the following:
“I like those Ewoks. They were great to work with. They were funny. They were funny.”
Needless to say, this is the first we hear of Morrison working with Ewoks, which may hint at a possible appearance in one of the upcoming episodes from The Book of Boba Fett, or even another Star Wars series he may have been involved with (we still don’t know if he will appear in The Mandalorian season 3, which is currently shooting). Ming-Na Wen tried her best not to make a big deal out of the situation and awkwardly nodded while trying to blend into the background.
We’re already past the half-point of the series, and we haven’t seen Boba Fett leave Tatooine. With the tease at the end of Chapter 4 of more “muscle” to come, it’s possible we might get off-world in Chapter 5, but that still doesn’t justify a trip to Endor. Will Boba and Fennec be recruiting an army of Ewoks to help them fight the Pykes? Will Endor appear later, maybe in Chapter 6? Filoni co-wrote that one, and we’re speculating that we may see some of his animated characters, so maybe they are not coming alone. Above all, after seeing Boba Fett interact with banthas and teach the Tuskens how to ride a speeder, I think we should all be looking forward to some dry humor between Boba and the Ewoks if there’s truth to his words.
Morrison’s reaction to seeing an Ewok sounded really genuine, but we should still digest this with a grain of salt. For once, he could be messing with us, and it’s also not the first time he’s given us inaccurate information. In summer 2021, he famously told Rotten Tomatoes that we’d be getting flashbacks all the way back to Empire Strikes Back, but after seeing the first half of the show, he might have been referring to Return of the Jedi (we won’t know for sure until it’s done, though the flashbacks may have ended with Chapter 4). He also said Favreau would be directing in the series, and the latest official information from Disney Plus says otherwise. So, for now, we’ll be keeping an eye out for further developments.
