Boba Fett is one of the characters that have been with us from the time of the Galactic Republic up to the time of the fall of the Empire. As such, we have seen him throughout the entire Star Wars franchise since his childhood all the way to The Book of Boba Fett, where he seems to be quite old already. But how old is Boba Fett in The Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian, and the rest of Star Wars?
Boba Fett is around 36 during the time he escaped the Sarlacc in The Book of Boba Fett. Meanwhile, because both the main timeline of The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian happen at the same time, he is likely around 41 to 42. Finally, in Attack of the Clones, he is likely only ten years old.
The entire Star Wars timeline may be a bit confusing because of how plenty of the different Star Wars movies and shows happen in different timelines. The same can be said about Boba Fett because his appearances in the movies and the different shows happen in different timelines. That said, we are here to make things simpler for you to understand.
How Old Is Boba Fett In The Book Of Boba Fett?
In The Book of Boba Fett, one of the things you notice about the titular bounty hunter is that he doesn’t look as old as his actor, Temuera Morrison is. Morrison is 61 years of age as of this writing, but what you should know is that Boba Fett is actually much younger in The Book of Boba Fett, which takes place only five years after the events of Return of the Jedi.
When we see Boba Fett making his escape from the Sarlacc in the opening scenes of The Book of Boba Fett, he is likely around 36 years old at that time because his escape is only about a few days after Jabba’s death in Return of the Jedi.
While he does look older when he was unmasked after the Jawas stole his armor, you have to understand that Boba Fett spent a few days inside the Sarlacc’s stomach. As such, the wear and tear you see on his face is not the product of age but is actually the damage caused by Sarlacc’s stomach acid. On top of that, Fett wasn’t under the best living conditions when he was a slave of the Tusken Raiders that found him after he escaped from the Sarlacc.
Meanwhile, the events of the main timeline of The Book of Boba Fett happened five years after the fall of the Empire because this show happens at the exact same time as The Mandalorian, which is set five years after the Return of the Jedi. That means that Boba Fett could be somewhere around 41 or 42 years old in the main timeline of The Book of Boba Fett.
How Old Is Boba Fett In The Mandalorian?
When we first see Boba Fett in The Mandalorian when he made his appearance after a very long time, one of the things that are noticeable about him is that he looks quite old. However, you should understand that this was the time before Boba Fett retrieved his armor and took over Jabba’s palace. As such, he was still sporting the visible damage he suffered in the Sarlacc’s stomach and whatever happened to him before he retrieved his armor from Din Djarin in The Mandalorian.
Considering that The Book of Boba Fett happens right after Fett recovers his armor in The Mandalorian, he is right around 41 to 42 years old in this series. That is because, again, The Mandalorian takes place five years after Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. So, since Fett was 36 in Return of the Jedi, he should be right around 41 or 42 in The Mandalorian.
How Old Is Boba Fett In The Rest Of Star Wars?
Outside of The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian, Boba Fett also made appearances in other Star Wars movies and series.
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, we were introduced to Temuera Morrison’s Jango Fett, who is actually Boba Fett’s “father”. Jango was revealed to be the one who supplied the genes needed by Kamino cloners secretly commissioned by the Republic to produce clones that the Republic needed for the war against the Separatists.
While the clones were designed to be genetically modified to grow rapidly and to be very obedient, Jango requested a separate clone that was not genetically modified in any single way. This clone turned out to be Boba Fett. At that time, Boba Fett was only ten years old, as he witnessed his father’s decapitation at the hands of Jedi Master Mace Windu.
Star Wars: Clone Wars
Boba Fett also made an appearance in the animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars, which happened right after Attack of the Clones. Fett was seen infiltrating one of the training stations of younger clones that were yet to grow into their mature versions.
But because Clone Wars happens right after Attack of the Clones, it is tough to say how old Boba Fett is in Clone Wars. However, considering that Clone Wars is in between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, which are three years apart, we can guess that Boba Fett is somewhere around 11 to 13 years old when he made his appearance in Clone Wars.
