The Mandalorian has proven itself to be not only a massive hit on Disney+ streaming service, but as a show in general!
The Mandalorian has fast become the most popular show on Disney's new streaming service, Disney+. Largly due to the speculation that The Mandalorian may infact be Boba Fett from the original Star Wars films.
"Before the release of The Mandalorian, it was even speculated by some fans that the title character might actually be Boba Fett, as that character's fate has been retconned since his seemingly fatal plunge into the Sarlacc pit in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. It turns out that Boba is still alive, meaning that he may very well be wandering the galaxy during the events of The Mandalorian, but the differences between the two characters are many, and significant."
While both Boba and the Mandalorian are seen operating as bounty hunters, and both operate mostly according to the codes of that profession, that and their armor is basically where the similarities end. This is because, like his father before him, Boba Fett's code of honor is largely his own, untethered to any larger philosophy, which stands in stark contrast to the Mandalorian, whose code isn't just a personal preference, but his actual religion.
