What happened to the actor who played young Boba Fett in Star Wars?

The Star Wars prequel trilogy gave fans of the popular sci-fi franchise many things: a look at Anakin Skywalker growing up, and an explanation as to how he became a Sith Lord; a look behind the curtain at the politics fueling the Empire; a huge pet peeve in the form of Jar-Jar Binks; and even a look at a young Boba Fett, the notorious bounty hunter from the original trilogy.

Boba Fett made his first appearance — chronologically speaking, anyway — in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, the second installment in the prequel trilogy. He also appeared as a youngster on the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which gave us story of how Boba Fett began on the path to becoming the galaxy's fiercest (and most fearsome) bounty hunter. At the time of Attack of the Clones, the character was only 10 years old and living on the planet Kamino with his "father," bounty hunter Jango Fett (of whom he was actually a clone). Child actor Daniel Logan portrayed young Boba Fett on the big screen, but what happened to him? What has the kid who played the most famous bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe been up to in the years since he came back down to Earth?

For starters, the Star Wars prequels didn't put Logan off from acting like they did with young Anakin Skywalker actor Jake Lloyd. (That role made Lloyd completely quit Hollywood for good.) Rest assured that the 32-year-old New Zealander is still in the biz to this day. After appearing in Attack of the Clones in 2002, Logan made a number of more low-key appearances in films and on television. In 2003, he lent his voice to the animated series TakaPu: A Gannet In The South Seas and the feature film The Legend of Johnny Lingo. He was even the voice behind the animated incarnation of Boba Fett for five episodes of The Clone Wars, which ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network beginning in 2008. (A sixth was produced for Netflix, and a seventh will be fielded next year on Disney+).

More recently, Logan has held roles in Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens (2016), The Griddle House (2018), and Underdogs Rising (2018). He's set to appear in the theatrical feature The Time War and the TV movie The Oath: Outbreak, both of which are currently in post-production.

Will Daniel Logan ever return as Boba Fett?

When the Star Wars sequel trilogy was announced, there was also talk of a Boba Fett spin-off film and at that time, photos surfaced of Logan being kitted out in an adult Boba Fett costume. The actor is active on social media, with plenty of photos on Instagram to show he still has young Boba's cheeky side grin, and he's also shared a number of images of himself trying on a full costume or bits and pieces thereof. Of course, there's no doubt it was a costume he commissioned for himself, as there's no way a company like Disney would stand for him sharing photos of an official costume for a film before the studio had released photos and trailers.

Nothing was ever confirmed with regards to a possible role for Logan in the Boba Fett film, but it certainly wouldn't have been outside the realm of possibility for him to make a return to the Star Wars universe. It's quite clear that the actor would have been more than happy to make a big comeback in the franchise had the chance arisen; unfortunately, the film was cancelled late in 2018, after Solo: A Star Wars Story underperformed at the box office.

Daniel Logan is happy with his Star Wars legacy

Logan still makes as many public appearances as he can with other Star Wars franchise stars. He also attends Comic Cons around the world, with his most recent appearances being at German Comic Con Dortmund and at Tokyo Comic Con, where he shared the stage with the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Rupert Grint, and Jude Law, among others. Photos on his social media and videos on YouTube often show him posing for photos with fans and thanking them for the continued support at various Cons around the world.

Although he certainly isn't among Hollywood's A-list after the promising early start to his career, Logan is still in the industry and reliving his Boba days as often as he can. The actor is also married, and has an adorable little clone of his own, his young son Brad, who might just follow in his father's footsteps. Sound like someone else we know?
