Mandalorian? Canon!Jango is not one and neither is Bobba. -- 13:01, June 20, 2014 (UTC)Tiisis

You have a point: the Encyclopedia merely describes the Fetts as humans, neglecting to mention Jango's homeworld. On the Death Watch's page it merely mentions "Jango Fett had no known association with the Death Watch - except for wearing the same Mandalorian armor. The officials of Mandalore disavowed any connection to Fett. They claimed Jango was simply a bounty hunter who somehow stole an artifact from the planet's troubled past." --Alientraveller (talk) 13:27, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
You are correct that Boba Fett is not identified as a Mandalorian in canon. Per Alientraveller, the Prime Minister of Mandalore specifically dismissed Jango as a pretender. I've removed the Mandalorian references. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:25, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
Umm he's mentioned as Mandalorian in the Star Wars OT encyclopedia, and as far as I know that is still canon. Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).
Whatever that is, it's not canon. The official Databank does not say Boba is a Mandalorian, nor do any other canon sources. They say he wears Mandalorian armor, but so did Jango Fett: and Prime Minister Almec of Mandalore called Jango a pretender. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:19, July 12, 2014 (UTC)
However Almec himself was a pretender, so we can't believe everything he says. 17:07, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
We can in the absence of any other canon sources. Right now, there is nothing that says Boba or Jango were Mandalorians in canon. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:12, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
I thought Jango was Concordian anyway (Is that Legends now? I have to check his article right after this.). But is "Mandalorian" actually even a species though? I thought it was a distinction of honor/all-around "Spartan-ness". I mean, Boba IS still technically a clone. (P.S. Is it officially confirmed that Boba died at the Great Pit of Carkoon?) --TheHadokenite (talk) 21:33, January 4, 2018 (UTC)

Dead or alive?Edit

Do we know if he's dead or alive Gopher dude 11 (talk)

  • His last chronological, canonical appearance is Return of the Jedi, so—as best as we know—he's dead. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:25, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
In the Expanded Universe, he escaped the Sarlacc, but that has been retconned in preparation of Episode VII. So he's dead for now. SeanWheeler (talk) 00:26, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
Presumed dead, at the very least. That's why, in writing this article, I left the ending deliberately vague. For example, instead of saying he died during the battle at the sarlacc, I said he was knocked into the sarlacc where he would be digested for a thousand years—which doesn't preclude the possibility of him getting out. The Databank has also kept it vague in much the same way. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 00:31, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
Just got word from a Reddit AMA with JW Rinzler that George has decided Boba Fett lived and thus his escape is presumably set to be retold in future Canon material. --FigmentJedi (talk) 20:49, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
I've added the information from Rinzler into the behind the scenes section. However, this isn't enough to go on to treat it as in-universe fact. It doesn't appear in the film, so it can't really be considered part of the immovable George Lucas canon that Lucasfilm has referred to Episodes I-VI and The Clone Wars as unless we're told otherwise. George Lucas doesn't make story decisions for Star Wars anymore, so there's no telling what Lucasfilm/Disney will ultimately say about Boba's death. My hunch is that he's alive, but until we see confirmation in an official, canon source, we need to keep this page vague. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:16, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
Actually if Fett is still in the Sarlacc, he takes 1000 years to digest and thus he'll be alive for 1000 years right? 18:37, January 2, 2016 (UTC)
That only means that it would take 1,000 years for his body to be fully digested. Being in the sarlacc doesn't mean you live for 1,000 years. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 18:39, January 2, 2016 (UTC)

Lucas said in the directors commentary on Episode VI that, after hearing how popular Fett became, of having a remake or something to show Fett coming out of the Sarlaac, but decided not to. I'm guessing Fett is dead then unless Disney brings him back. I think we can list him as "dead" and bring him back if, like Maul, he is brought back to life in a future release. Your Friendly Neighborhood Sharptooth (LAT) (talk) 04:01, May 23, 2016 (UTC)

  • Given the ambiguous nature surrounding his fate, it's better to leave the article ambiguous for now rather than declaring him one way or another. We shouldn't be in the business of making assumptions like that, after all. The prose/voice should reflect and allow for ambiguity. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:40, May 23, 2016 (UTC)
    • Lucas has contradicted himself on whether or not Boba Fett is alive on numerous occasions. The Boba Fett Fanclub has even coined the term "Schrodinger's Fett". Lucas also no longer controls the Star Wars franchise. Until we have definitive, 100% unambiguous proof that Fett is dead or alive, we shouldn't make assumptions. I agree with @Brandon Rhea. DarkKnight2149 22:13, June 19, 2016 (UTC)
  • Really I don't understand. As Jonathan W. Rinzler said, "If George Lucas said that, it's true!", so it's obvious that Fett survived "his death" and that his comeuppance isn't ambioguous!
  • But, you see, George doesn't control the canon anymore, and neither does Jonathan. When George sold to Disney, he essentially (and hopefully knowingly) relinquished control over his own lore. Say I owned a company but sold it to you. I can't still make changes and decisions for YOUR company; it now belongs to YOU. Just like Brandon, I think it should remain ambiguous. George Lucas and Jonathan W. Rinzler can think and say whatever they want, but the lore, as well as the entire franchise itself, belongs to Disney whether you like it or not (*cough* no one does *cough*). Fett's state IS ambiguous, and we should not make decisions based on what is technically unreliable information. On Mr. Rinzler's actual Wookieepedia page, it says this: "On December 2, 2017, in answering a fan question if he was to publish new reference or guide books to cover the entire production of the Sequel Trilogy or the Star Wars Anthology Series films, Rinzler stated that it was better to ask Del Rey, J.J. Abrams or The Walt Disney Company about the matter, as he no longer works at Lucasfilm Ltd." Bottom line: don't rely on Rinzler. --TheHadokenite (talk) 21:43, January 4, 2018 (UTC)

Galactic Defense Edit

Can someone who has Star Wars: Galactic Defense (and who wasn't involved in the edit war on the page) confirm whether that game says anything about Boba being a Mandalorian? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:22, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm not very far into the game, so I can't account for any other Boba info, but this is his loading screen flavor text: "A clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, Boba Fett is a formidable bounty hunter in his own right. His extreme methods make him a figure to be feared, and he is tasked by Jabba the Hutt to capture Han Solo." Haven't seen a Jango loading screen yet, so no word on whether it calls him a Mandalorian or not. Operative lm (talk) 07:03, March 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • Actually, I'm wondering if people might be trying to bring information over from the Galactic Defense wiki. Their page for Boba has a lot of in-universe information of the type that isn't found anywhere in the characters' in-game "Detailed Info" pages. Operative lm (talk) 19:04, March 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • I was involved in the edit war(which I somewhat regret) but I went ahead and did some digging. I found this image:, which does not mention him being Mandalorian. In addition, I found this video, which shows one of the loading screens from the game: "A clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, Boba Fett is a formidable bounty hunter in his own right. His extreme methods make him a figure to be feared, and he is tasked by Jabba the Hutt to capture Han Solo." So nothing about him being Mandalorian. GrandmasteroftheArchives (talk) 04:45, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
  • So if there's nothing that anyone can find in Galactic Defense about a Mandalorian Boba, should we go ahead and remove it from the introduction? Operative lm (talk) 21:32, March 11, 2015 (UTC)
  • I have a screenshot to confirm Boba being named a Mandalorian, but I am unable to upload it. The info can be found under the "Enemies" tab while playing the Light Side missions. It states "Boba Fett is a seasoned Mandalorian bounty hunter. He is a dangerous and resourceful warrior, full of gadgets and concealed weapons." Hope this clears things up. Cwedin (talk) 08:44, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
  • This link might work. Cwedin (talk) 09:11, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
    • Welp, there we go then. Thanks, Cwedin. Operative lm (talk) 22:03, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
  • Considering that a Mandalorian is someone from Mandalore, and since it has been established on-screen that neither Boba or Jango are from there, how can the game's description (which is merely presumed to be canon) be considered evidence of anything? It doesn't corroborate his origin as established in every other source that is actually known to be canon. Alexrd (talk) 18:14, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

Page lockedEdit

Why has this page been locked from editing? - AV-6R7User talk:AV-6R7 16:27, March 14, 2015 (UTC)

I think it because of too much controversy over his death?--Dogsteeves (talk) 18:33, October 24, 2017 (UTC)

Star Wars: AftermathEdit

In Star Wars: Aftermath (2015 canon novel set after Return of the Jedi), acid-damaged Mandalorian armour strongly resembling Boba Fett's was discovered by Jawas on Tattooine in the midst of the wreckage of Jabba the Hutt's sale barge. It was obtained by a sheriff named Codd Vanth. This probably means that either Boba Fett escaped the Sarlacc, or Boba Fett is dead and his armour was vomited by the Sarlacc. Codd Vanth also may or may not be masquerading as Boba Fett in the current canon.

Even though the armour is obviously Fett's, it is not 100% confirmed to be, so we can't add it to the article YET. However, it is still something to watch out for. The sequels, Aftermath: Life Dept and Aftermath: Empires End, will be released in 2016 and 2017. The Aftermath trilogy is meant to bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. DarkKnight2149 22:49, December 27, 2015 (UTC)

Should we post in this article how a set of mandalorian armor was found on tattooine during that one flashback scene in aftermath?--Galaxyfarfaraway (talk) 03:19, January 16, 2016 (UTC)
* just noticed the previous talk section on this article, my bad for posting
This discussion is already on the Talk Page. Although the armour is obviously Fett's, it hasn't been confirmed to be. Therefore, we can't mention it. DarkKnight2149 21:07, January 16, 2016 (UTC)

Filoni Unexpected FatesEdit

Do we know if the clip shown at Celebration Orlando is canon, or just a concept that will remain as such ?--Marcuspearl (talk) 00:29, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
