Once The Mandalorian is entered our worlds just over two years ago, most fans of Star Wars has given the first look at a Mandalorian. As a young man, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) was adopted into Mandalorian culture, later evolving into the bounty hunter we all know and love.
However, this is not the most impressive aspect of his character; no, this belongs to his devotion to always wearing his silver beskar helmet. Unlike its counterparts in The Clone Wars And Star Wars Rebels , Mando never takes off his helmet: why? We’ll get into it in a bit.
For now, our big question has to do with former Mandalorian Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison). In appearances she is in The Mandalorian that in the Book of Boba Fett, Boba rarely wears his helmet, choosing instead to show his face. Is this allowed? Why does Boba always take off her helmet? Will she be in serious trouble like Mando, or is there a reason she can take off her helmet? Let’s find out!
Why does Boba Fett take off his helmet?
Despite having assembled Din Djarin as a more abstract and faceless character, The Book of Boba Fett imagine the titular crime lord with an established identity. So much so that we will probably see his face more than his duraplast armored helmet. How is it possible?
Well, if you can believe it, Din is one of the rare Mandalorians who can’t take off his helmet. Other Mandalorians, such as Boba Fett, Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) and Koska Reeves (Sasha Banks), are free to take off their helmets whenever they want.
Although Boba Fett, Bo-Katan and Koska follow and embrace Mandalorian cultural ideas and practices, they have no rules against removing their helmets. If we were to classify them, we would say that the trio is part of the more traditional Mandalorian society.
In the episode of The Mandalorian Entitled “Chapter 11: The Heiress,” Din uncovers the truth about her upbringing, discovering that she is part of an extremist group that follows the Creed.
Bo-Katan says Din was found and adopted by the Children of the Watch, a group of “religious zealots who seek to reestablish ‘the Way of the Mandalore'” through various antiquated Mandalorian traditions, such as never taking off your helmet in front of others. .
A “Star Wars” artist believes Boba Fett should never have taken off his helmet.
If you are a fanatic of Star Wars like us, then you know that Boba Fett has been through pretty much every episode of The Clone Wars without the helmet. But we can agree that when Boba takes off his helmet, it almost takes away the mystery of the character.
In view of The Book of Boba Fett art director and director Joe Johnston spoke with the New York Times and told the outlet that he would rather have the infamous crime lord wear his helmet.
“I would never have shown his face. I would never have an actor underneath where he takes off his helmet, and you see who he is, ”confessed Joe. “I think that removes a lot of the mystery. Before the helmet takes off, it can be anyone ”.
The first episode of Boba Fett’s book is now available to stream exclusively on Disney Plus.
