Though he filmed his scenes in the armor, he will not be taking over the role as Temuera Morrison has been confirmed to return to the iconic bounty hunter role he originated in Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones, but rather will appear as Cobb Vanth, a character introduced in Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath book series.
