How Boba Fett got his armor back before the show
How Boba Fett recovered his beskar armor wasn’t shown on his Disney+ series, but it was explored in The Mandalorian. Here is what happened.
Warning: Spoilers for Boba Fett’s Book episode 4.
Boba Fett’s Book ignored how the main character got his armor back, which was an event explored by The Mandalorian. Prior to her starring role in Star Wars’ second live broadcast, Temuera Morrison’s Boba Fett contributed heavily to the story for The Mandalorian season 2. It was during his meeting with Mando (Pedro Pascal) that he recovered the precious beskar armor from Jango Fett.
Boba Fett’s Disney+ series flashback story, which seemingly ended with Episode 4, revealed quite a bit about what the bounty hunter has been up to since his “death” in Return of the Jedi. In four episodes, the show has answered several questions, the most important of which is how he escaped from the Sarlacc pit. As for how he spent his time, it is now known that he lived among the Tusken Raiders, who made him a full member of their tribe. In Boba Fett’s Book episode 4, the series told how he acquired the ship. And while he also explored his efforts to recover his lost armor, it didn’t show him that he actually found it.
The recovery of his armor has been covered extensively in The Mandalorian season 2, which explained what happened to him after the Jawas removed him from Boba Fett’s body. Apparently, he was bought from the Jawas by Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant), Mos Pelgo’s Marshal. It was still in his possession when he crossed paths with Mando in the Season 2 premiere. characters completely unaware of its history. As for how Boba Fett knew she was given to Mando, that can be attributed to the premiere’s ending, which showed him observing the two on Tatooine. Obviously, he went to the Jawas and reunited with Cobb Vanth offscreen.
Using his years of experience as a bounty hunter, Boba Fett and Fennec managed to quietly track Mando to Tython, where they first met. Their conversation about the armor’s rightful ownership was cut short when Moff Gideon’s forces arrived to take Baby Yoda away. After being caught up in Mando’s battle with the villain’s army, Boba Fett took his chance and dressed up during the fight to help defeat their enemies. Because his help was necessary for their survival, he received no resistance from Mando to keep the armor.
Getting his hands on the armor was the penultimate step towards establishing his position as daimyo of Mos Espa and current ruler of Jabba the Hutt’s empire. The latter, which was Boba Fett killing Bib Fortuna and taking the throne for himself, was also featured in The Mandalorian season 2, which means the star wars franchise has no more gaps to fill. So after Boba Fett’s Book episode 4, the series can now look forward rather than backward as it focuses its attention on its plan to maintain order in Mos Espa and defeat the Pyke Syndicate.
