Ecstatic Disney Guests received quite the treat at the Disneyland Resort on Friday when the newly introduced Mandolorian character had a special interaction with another famous bounty hunter before their eyes.
Since the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019, visitors to both Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resort have relished the opportunity to meet and interact with some of their favorite characters. Galaxy’s Edge brings together the sights, sounds, and tastes of a galaxy far, far away… for Guests to enjoy as they explore the original planet of Batuu.
In addition to original characters such as Vi Moradi, Disney has introduced many character interactions inspired by both the classic trilogy and the newer sequels such as Chewbacca, Kylo Ren, and Rey. Recently, Boba Fett and Fennec Shand, as featured in The Mandolorian (2019), began meeting Guests within the land.
Now, the Mandolorian himself, Din Djarin, and his young ward Grogu have made their own arrival to the distant planet at the edge of the Galaxy. The Mandolorian and Grogu began meeting with Guests on November 18.
However, “Mando” was not the only bounty hunter in Batuu on Friday, when he and Boba Fett entered the land together to the excitement of Park Guests. Theme Park reporter, Scott Gustin, shared a video of their interaction on Twitter:

The two Mandolorian bounty hunters stand side by side and appraise one another in the clip. Boba Fett peers at Grogu in his sling on Mando’s side, before seemingly nodding in acknowledgment. Then, the duo begins their walk through the rest of Galaxy’s Edge as fans cheer and The Mandolorian theme song plays overhead.
For now, Guests can meet Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, Din Djarin, and Grogu in Batuu at the Galaxy’s Edge area in Disneyland Park. As of yet, Disney has not released plans to introduce these characters for meet-and-greets at the Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
