The Differences Between The Mandalorian And Boba Fett Explained


Published – 11/26/2019 2:00 am

The Mandalorian has proven itself to not only be one of the best original offerings on Disney+, but one of the best new shows on television, period.

Its conflicted protagonist is a member of a dying race, a warlike yet honorable people who once inhabited the planet Mandalore in the time of the Old Republic. During the time period in which the series is set, in between the original and sequel film trilogies, they’re a people whose numbers are dwindling fast, due to a long, long history of conflict that has led them to being forsaken by their own government and exiled to the moon of Concordia, where they were left to die out.

While the history of Mandalore is a bit fluid, one thing that has never changed is the race’s distinctive armor, armor which has been very familiar to fans ever since the first big-screen appearance of the bounty hunter Boba Fett in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

Before the release of The Mandalorian, it was even speculated by some fans that the title character might actually be Boba Fett, as that character’s fate has been retconned since his seemingly fatal plunge into the Sarlacc pit in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. It turns out that Boba is still alive, meaning that he may very well be wandering the galaxy during the events of The Mandalorian, but the differences between the two characters are many, and significant.

All of these differences stem from the most obvious one: Boba Fett isn’t actually Mandalorian. He’s a clone of Jango Fett, who claimed to hail from Concord Dawn, a planet within the Mandalore system. Although Jango wore Mandalorian armor outfitted with the types of bells and whistles common to those worn by the warrior race, he had been disavowed by the Mandalorian government, which regarded him as nothing more than a scoundrel, a common mercenary whose only interest was in a paycheck.

This goes to the core of the differences between Boba Fett, who followed in his father’s footsteps in becoming the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy, and the Mandalorian, whose identity is very strongly tied to his homeworld and its culture.

While both Boba and the Mandalorian are seen operating as bounty hunters, and both operate mostly according to the codes of that profession, that and their armor is basically where the similarities end.

This is because, like his father before him, Boba Fett’s code of honor is largely his own, untethered to any larger philosophy, which stands in stark contrast to the Mandalorian, whose code isn’t just a personal preference, but his actual religion.
