Does Boba Fett Appear in Disney's 'The Mandalorian'?

By

Disney's latest Star Wars-focused series The Mandalorian is out now on Disney+. It's a self-described space western set in the Star Wars universe that takes place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi. As such, it follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter on their journeys throughout the outer reaches of the galaxy. But who is the titular Mandalorian? Does he have any ties to the bounty hunter clone pair Jango or Boba Fett? Here's everything we know so far. 

Is Boba Fett the Mandalorian?

Unfortunately, no. While it might appear to make perfect sense to have Boba Fett in a new Star Wars series with a Mandalorian protagonist, that's not the direction Disney decided to go in. For one thing, it would be implausible for Boba Fett to appear in the show. The bounty hunter is said to have died in Return of the Jedi, and The Mandalorian takes place following that film, which aired in 1983.
