The Mandalorian confirms some facts about fans’ favorite characters

Chapter 14 of The Mandalorian (Season 2, Episode 6) revealed some new things about long-time fan favorite characters from the Star Wars world and confirmed long-standing questions about them.
Spoilers follow The Mandalorian Chapter 14: Tragedy.First, this episode completely confirmed that the Robe character seen at the Season 1 premiere on Tatooine was certainly Boba Fett. We also confirmed that Boba Fett was the mysterious person standing on Fennec Shand’s body, as seen in Chapter 5, as many fans had theorized.

But the big exposure was the final confirmation that Boba Fett himself was truly a true Mandalorian. In the episode, Fett explained that his father was a founding and fought in the Mandalorian Civil War. This effectively means that Django (and thus Boba) is a Mandalorian, like Dinjarin, and their armor would have been given to them by the Mandalorian.

Boba Fett finally wore it a few years after losing the Mandalorian’s armor.

For many years, fans have been arguing whether Boba Fett, and thus his father, Jango Fett, is actually a Mandalorian. Django claims to have been born in the Concord Dawn, which is part of the Mandalore system, but conflicting comments from various Star Wars creators and media, especially the Lucasfilm Story Group Pablo Idalgo, are that Fets is not real, but Manda. Mandalorian himself says he’s just wearing Lorient’s armor.

What did you think

With the Mandalorian considered a canon, we now have an official in-space answer to this long-discussed question. Boba Fett is not just a man in Mandalorian armor, but a Mandalorian.
