In the final episode of The Mandalorian and now The Book of Boba Fett, Temuera Morrison - who played Jango Fett in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones - was brought back to play Boba Fett. However, it seems like the more natural choice for Fett would have been Daniel Logan, who played Boba Fett himself in Episode II, is also Maori and was even nominated for an award for the role.

Is there any information out there on why the producers chose not to bring back Logan for the role? Was it simply that it had already been established elsewhere that Boba Fett was closer to Temuera Morrison's age than Daniel Logan, or is there another reason?

    I'm not sure about the conclusion that Logan is "the natural choice" to play Boba Fett when the one thing we know about adult Boba is that he looks exactly like Temuera Morrison.

    AotC is 22 years before ANH, and Mando is 9 years after that, but Logan would only be 18 years older. Plus, the whole Temeura looks like Temeura, and Logan doesn't.

Though not confirmed officially, its probably because Daniel Logan wasn't a big star and hasn't exactly starred in any notable films( his acting credits including one of the Sharknado movies and voicing Fett in the Clone Wars show) and hence couldn't be trusted to star in a show of such scale, while on the other hand Temuera Morrison is a comparatively famous actor and has a lengthy filmography(some notable films being Aquaman and Moana). You can view both actors' filmographies on Wikipedia.

    Can you back this up with any actual evidence?

    I don't think there is evidence needed here as it's common sense the studio will go for a bankable star with star power.
