It looks like another character from The Mandalorian is set to appear in Boba Fett’s book. That is, assuming a recently revealed crew shirt from production is to be believed. Very little is currently known about the upcoming Star Wars series, only that it is in the works for Disney + and that Boba Fett, played by Temuera Morrison, will finally have the opportunity to star in a solo project. But thanks to the shirt in question, we might have just learned a crucial detail. Or it could just be Lucasfilm putting a popular character on a shirt.

Warning: possible spoilers ahead for The Book of Boba Fett. Proceed with caution. Recently, thanks to an article by Herderofnerf on the Star Wars Leaks Reddit page, a team shirt that was given to members of the production crew while filming the series was revealed. The main image on the back reads “Buccaneer season 1”, with Boba Fett below doing his thing. It is also written “Legacy Effects Creature Crew”, indicating who these shirts belonged to. But it’s a little image on the front that’s worth raising an eyebrow. Concretely, we can see none other than Grogu, alias Baby Yoda, right on the chest of the shirt.
Before we dive into speculation here, it’s important to note that this is by no means a confirmation. But this is an official shirt made by Lucasfilm especially for this show. It would seem strange to put a character on the shirt that has nothing to do with the show. So it could be a “where there is smoke there is also fire” situation. But for now, we still have to treat it like a rumor until new evidence emerges.
That being said, it would be an interesting development, if not entirely surprising. Grogu, from the moment he appeared on screen, has become a fan favorite of Star Wars. Giving him more screen time would be an obvious thing to do. But we know that Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, the producers of The Mandalorian who work on this show with Robert Rodriguez, are not going to do it without a good reason. This begs the question, why would Grogu run into Boba Fett again?
The last time we left the little green alien, Mando was handing him over to Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian season 2 finale. Presumably, Luke was going to train him in the ways of the Force. So bringing Grogu back to the iconic bounty hunter would have certain implications. Either the little guy broke up with Luke, or we might get to see more of the beloved Jedi. Either way, this is an intriguing development. Boba Fett’s book is currently set to arrive in December on Disney +. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as more details become available. This news comes to us via Reddit.
