Identified by their iconic armor, Mandalorians are multi-species warrior people from the planet Mandalore, the most famous of whom is Boba Fett.
In the original trilogy, Boba Fett was a feared bounty hunter who was hired by Darth Vader to capture Han Solo. He later made a small appearance in Return of the Jedi, where he died by falling into the Sarlacc pit.
Mandalorians became more of a focal point in the prequel trilogy when Jango Fett is introduced in Attack of the Clones. Turns out, the bounty hunter serves as the genetic template for an army of clones being produced for the Republic. It’s in this film that audiences also meet a young Boba Fett, who is revealed to be a clone of Jango who he is raising as his son.
In addition to appearing in the films, Mandalorians have a much deeper lore in the Star Wars expanded universe, showing up in comics and TV shows. Recently, the New Mandalorians have been introduced, who are pacifist humans who wish to distance themselves from Mandalore’s warrior traditions.
Expect Star Wars: The Mandalorian to further explore the mysterious lore of the Mandalorians.
