Well, it's a cannon, just not the only cannon....

Think of it as a Multi-verse Zard.
I kind of do, the old legends was a mixed bag. The best if it was damn though.

If you want a good Star Wars game you more or less have to play legends. EA dropped the ball and modders are still supporting old titles. Or redone them in HD.


Wonder if the show will dark empire Fett back, I think they're hinting he survived the sarlacc. Maybe offscreen/exposition or a later season.

Sabine will be alive in this timeframe. She will be around 28 or so. Be good to see her make an appearance at some point (not season 1).

I'm not much of an computer/console gamer. So personally my approach to getting a good SW game is to:
Run or play in a SW (TT)RPG
Get a minis game of X-Wing or Legion going at the local shop.

As good as it looks, I can't afford to purchase Disney+, or any other streaming service.
Ive got my in-laws' netflix password and my sister-in-laws hulu password. We used to pay for Netflix, but we just don't watch enough TV to justify it.

But even if we were made of money, I wouldn't pay the mouse a subscription fee anymore than I'd pay amazon a sub.

They won't notice the "loss" from us watching this stuff on kodi, and if I couldn't get it there, I'd rather not watch any of it than give them money.

I am pretty sure he was the first guy to be frozen in carbonite with the machine Lando had. It didn't sound like it was supposed to be used for that. Wether freezing people in carbonite was never done before I don't know. But I kinda doubt it was something commonly done.

I think this is set after RotJ. Part of me wishes they’d just said it was Boba Fett, escaped from the Sarlacc Pit.

It's not something that was done that often in Legends. In the RPGs it was suggested as a way to use ancient Sith in the modern era.

Morrus in the old legends Fett survived the Sarlacc. In the new stuff they've refused to confirm Fett's dead and his movie probably turned into the Mandalorian show.

Mandalorians haven't changed that much between the old 90s depictions and the new. They could fight Jedi and generally lost to Masters. The only real difference was culture on Mandalore when they were used in The Clone Wars. And they kind if retconned that in Rebels.

They're more or less space Spartans.

Right there with you.

I'll always think of Canderous Ordo when I think of Mandalorians. That guy lived for a good fight.

It was, at least, established as a workable process, to the extent that Threepio thought he'd be very safe in there, providing he'd survived the initial process.

Perhaps carbon freezing is commonly used on living beings - livestock or slaves - and the only reason it was considered dangerous on Bespin is because that particular facility wasn't designed to handle live cargo.

I'm mixed on this, and thus probably agree with the "part of me" part.

On one hand, Boba Fett was an icon of my youth and I always loved the idea that he survived the Sarlacc Pit. On the other, it might ruin the mystique if he survived. As a general rule, bringing back dead or missing characters usually seems to have less of an impact than just leaving it mysterious. It is sort of like discovering "Terra Incognita" and then realizing it was more interesting and mysterious when it was unknown.

That said, I suspect the Mandalorian will at least give us hints. Either the main character himself will mention his "prior life" and drop hints that could be interpreted as him being Boba, or they'll mention Boba at some point. I also wouldn't be surprised if Boba turns up as a crime boss.

I suppose we could also read into their choice in setting it between episodes 6 and 7, which allows them to have a youngish Boba Fett. If we assume that Boba was 30-40ish in ROJ (he had a reputation and had presumably been around for awhile, so probably not younger than 30), he'd be 60-70ish in episodes 7-9 and thus definitely not playable by Pedro Pascal. But given that Pascal is 44, he could reasonably play Fett in an age range of 35-50ish.

Fett was around 32- 34 in RoTJ. 22 years passed between RotS and RotJ.

I can't quite recall the time between AotC and RotS. A slightly older Fett makes an appearance in The Clone Wars.

Thanks. My point stands, then. Fett would be at least 35 in the Mandalorian, depending upon how long after RotJ it is set (assuming that's when it is set) - making Pascal the right age (he's 44). That could be coincidence, or it could be deliberate.

Now if we find that the Mandalorian is set closer to eps 7-9, Fett would in his early 60s making Pascal the wrong choice. but Werner Herzog?

I think I read the Mandalorian is around 6 years after RotJ. It's set after the collapse of central authority.
So I would expect it it to be set closer to RotJ than TFA.

But yeah Fett wouldn't be to ancient.

In the old EU Fett had numerous disguised and sets of Mandalorian armor.

Never really thought about the Mandalorian might be Fett.

I don't expect a Fett appearance/reveal season 1 anyway.

See, it just keeps improving the probability.

If Boba was 32-34 when he "died," and the Mandalorian is set 6 years later, he'd be 38-40. Pascal is 44. Very close.

(I know I'm reaching, but it is fun speculating).

I don't mind speculation.

I can't remember if Bob's was 10 or 12 in AotC and I can't recall the exact timejump between AotC and RotS.
