Just as the finale has been released, it seems that Disney is ready to make the best of Cad Bane’s live-action debut with new merchandise featuring the iconic bounty hunter. He made his debut in The Book of Boba Fett’s sixth episode and also had a substantial role in the finale. So, it makes sense that they would release some merchandise based on the character, and it even offers a full look at his design in the series. The merch was first noticed by Twitter user @starwarsstuff2.
The design still is great and it’s fascinating how they managed to make the design first introduced in The Clone Wars work so well in live-action. It’s also great that Corey Burton returned to bring him to life, which just adds that extra level of authenticity that the character made its way into live-action.
Even as the finale left some questions open regarding his future in the series, there is still a lot of potential surrounding his inclusion in live-action and what else they might explore. Plus, who knows what other animated character may make their way to live-action moving forward.
