The Mandalorian may be set in a distant corner of the Star Wars galaxy, but that certainly hasn’t prevented a number of familiar characters from popping up in Season 2. We’ve already encountered a character who appears to be Boba Fett and Star Wars TV veteran Bo-Katan Kryze, and Rosario Dawson is reportedly taking over the role of Ahsoka Tano in live-action.Given that The Mandalorian takes place years after the events of the original trilogy, you might be wondering just how old these characters are supposed to be. Should Bo-Katan be thinking about retirement? Is Boba Fett as old as he appears in that one shot we got of him in the Season 2 premiere? Read on to have all your age-related questions answered.
