Villain Overview

I'm just a simple man, trying to make my way in the universe.
~ Jango Fett to Obi-Wan Kenobi

Jango Fett is a supporting antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He is the secondary antagonist of the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, the titular main protagonist of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, and a posthumous antagonist in the 2008 animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

He is one of the Star Wars galaxy's most formidable bounty hunters, and the original host in the creation of clone troopers. All these soldiers were made by cloning him. This process was made possible by the Prime Minister of Kamino, Lama Su. He is also the father of classic Star Wars villain Boba Fett.

He was portrayed by Temuera Morrison, who also portrayed his son Boba Fett in multiple videogames and The Mandolorian Azazello in The Island Of Dr. Moreau.

Personality

Fett is a ruthless, cool and cunning natural when it came to bounty hunting, though he can still care for others. He is primarily motivated by profit and usually only loyal to the highest bidder. Fett always focuses on maintaining peak condition with both his body, mind, and equipment. He is also quite intelligent, tactically skilled and knowledgeable in languages. Fett calculates his every move and this has almost always allowed him to either succeed in his goal or live to fight another day, preferring to evade as opposed to full on frontal combat. Despite his ruthlessness, Fett has something of a code of honor, living by the all his life and passing them on to his son. He prefers to keep to himself with only a few exceptions that managed to become close to him, including Wesell, Rozatta, and of course, his son, Boba.

Abilities

Fett is an extremely capable warrior and soldier, thanks to his Mandalorian training. In addition to his martial skill, he is extremely cunning and tactical in combat. Fett wears a slightly customized set of Mandalorian armor, made of durasteel alloy and packs an extremely versatile arsenal. This includes dual blaster pistols, a wrist mounted laser and flamethrower, a dart gun equipped with various darts, including Kaminoan saberdarts, a small concussion rocket in his left gauntlet, various types of gas capsules, a sonic beam, wrist blades, a wrist mounted grappling hook, a security field overloader, and electromagnetic devices in his gloves that let him grab his guns from a distance. Fett also uses a jetpack, common to Mandalorians, which came equipped with a mounted missile, a targeting computer, and flight gyros.

Relationship with the Mandalorians

Jango Fett's (and to an extension, Boba Fett's) is a topic that continues to remain an ongoing debate amongst the Star Wars community. Prior to Disney buying Star Wars and retconning Jango Fett's origin, George Lucas always felt that Jango was never a true Mandalorian and was instead a common man that became a bounty hunter. Dave Filoni responded to this by adding a scene in the episode, The Mandalore Plot, of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, where Obi Wan speaks with Minister Almec regarding Jango, in which Almec responds to him that Jango was nothing more than a bounty hunter that stole Mandalorian armor. Even within Disney's current canon, there are several hints to Jango Fett's relation with the Mandalorians, most notably his claim that he was born on Concord Dawn, which is a Mandalorian planet.

Despite this, Jango Fett was established as being a true Manadalorian that was raised by Jaster Mereel and led his own Mandalorian soldiers against Vizsla's Death Watch. These events are currently retconned as Legends material, however and thus have no connection with Disney's canon.

Trivia

  • Jango's actor, Temuera Morrison, also played clone troopers and voiced Boba Fett in the 2004 DVD edition of the original trilogy, as well as playing Azazello in The Island Of Dr. Moreau.
