The Mandalorian Season 2 rumored new additions: Boba Fett

Now, for all new Star Wars fans, you’re probably wondering how Boba Fett would know the Skywalker family. Well, let’s see. He wanted vengeance on Mace Windu for killing his father during the Clone Wars and Anakin helped to stop him.

Then, he would be hired as a bounty hunter years later by the Chosen One, who was now Darth Vader, to hunt down his son, Luke. Then, he accidentally got tossed into the Sarlacc Pit by Han Solo, who married Anakin’s daughter, Leia, who in turn killed Jabba the Hutt.

It should also be noted that when The Mandalorian was announced, people naturally assumed that the Fetts would be the focus. However, it was later revealed the protagonist would be totally original. However, there have been Boba Fett related Easter eggs during the first eight chapters to Din Djarin’s story.

Meanwhile, we also need to address the debate that has been brewing for several years regarding whether the Fetts were actual Mandalorians. George Lucas has stated that the father-son duo were NOT members of the creed that Din follows. This was even backed up in The Clone Wars Season 2 episode, “The Mandalore Plot,” where Prime Minister Almec tells Obi-Wan, “Jango Fett was a common bounty hunter. How acquired that armor is beyond me.”

Just because you have Mandalorian armor, it does not make you an automatic Mandalorian. Also, Jango’s Wookieepedia page states that he claims his home planet is Concord Dawn, though has never actually been confirmed. Also, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni wouldn’t change what was put in place beforehand. Also, Boba’s homeworld is listed as Kamino as this was where he was “born” as a clone of his “father.”
