THE Mandalorian fans have clashed as some claim the mysterious new arrival ISN’T Boba Fett after spotting a suspicious clue.
The first episode of the second season ended with a mysterious cloaked figure watching Mando zoom across the desert after killing the Krayt Dragon.
When he turned around, actor Temuera Morrison was revealed, with many fans immediately assuming his was back as Boba Fett.
Temuera first appeared in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones as Jango Fett, a bounty hunter who cloned himself to make Boba Fett, a role which he could then also play.
However, some Mandalorian fans wondered if his return as Boba was a red herring, and he is actually back as totally different character cloned from Jango, Captain Rex.
Rex was a clone trooper of the Grand Army of the Republic, cloned from Jango, and served the Galactic Republic under the command of Jedi Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano.
He was introduced in the 2008 animated movie Star Wars: The Clone Wars and also appeared in the Star Wars Rebels television series.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “I just realised that the person at the end of #TheMandalorian chapter 9 doesn’t necessarily have to be Boba Fett. He could also be Captain Rex, now fully shaved.”
Another added: “Not gonna believe it until they confirm that its actually Boba Fett. It might be Rex, Cody or other clones.”
A third tweeted: “How sure are we the guy at the end of S2E1 of
The fact that Ahsoka Tano is rumoured to be making her live action debut in The Mandalorian – with Rosario Dawson linked to the role – also added to the Captain Rex theory.
Another fan tweeted: “What if the Boba Fett stuff is a head fake in the #TheMandalorian? Instead it is one person that can help Mando find at least a former Jedi.

“He would have the same look – Captain Rex. I have all kinds of theories which would bring in Ahsoka, Ezra, Thrawn, Hera, Sabine, etc.”
Another added: “Just saw #TheMandalorian S2 E1 and after watching the ending, the question is this. Did #BobaFet survived the Sarlacc Pit?
“Or since #AhsokaTano will be on this season. Is it #Rex from the Clone Wars or any other surviving clones?”
The Mandalorian is available on Disney+ with new season two episodes dropping every Friday.
