12. Boba Fett’s face was never revealed in the original trilogy
Though Temuera Morrison has now made the role his own and has become synonymous with Boba Fett, much like the stoic Mando after him, Boba’s helmet and his face were one and the same for many years.
The helmet was key to the original conceit of the character, who was designed to be mysterious and enigmatic. In a sense, the helmet functioned as Boba’s face, a stonewall of emotion or feeling.
By hiding Boba Fett’s true face under his helmet, the character was unknowable, and his true nature was that much more inscrutable, making him a truly morally ambiguous character alongside villains like Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt.
Of course, Boba’s face was eventually revealed in the prequel trilogy first through his father, his genetic clone. As a result, Boba’s face became eventually very well known to fans and those within the Star Wars universe alike as he and Jango were the genetic identicals of the Republic Clone Army.
This was later jokingly referenced in The Mandalorian episode “The Believer” when Boba said he couldn’t help break into an Empire facility because they would recognize him. Helmet or no helmet, Boba is one of the most iconic and distinct characters in Star Wars.
