Rumor: Mandalorians could make an appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII

06.24.2014

If it's a day of the week ending with the letter Y it must be time for another STAR WARS: EPISODE VII rumor. If you recall hearing about mercenaries going after the Jedi in the upcoming STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, the folks over at Latino Review might have some more information on what kind of mercenaries or hunters we are talking about.

A lot of people thought that the Jedi hunters described before sounded a lot like "Mandalorians", and if these new rumors turn out to be true, they would be right. You know one famous Mandalorian already, Boba Fett. Also if you plan on watching Star Wars: Rebels this fall, you will be introduced to another named Sabine Wren. Reports from the Set in London claim to have seen black and silver/chrome troopers but couldn’t confirm for sure if they were Mandalorians or just a new group of Imperial Storm Troopers. One interesting note as well is that the report mentions that a Sith Witch or Witches are in the movie.

Some background on The Mandalorians:

"In their early years, Mandalorian culture revolved around battle, with war being a source of honor and pride in their community. The leader of the Mandalorians, known as the Mand'alor, translates to "Sole Ruler" and presented as "Mandalore" in Basic. Throughout their history, the Mandalorians often allied with the Sith, perhaps most notably the Sith Lord Exar Kun, and held a certain distrust and general dislike for the Jedi Order."

Now I'm not too well versed with a lot of the Star Wars expanded universe shenanigans but that sounds very much like the Nightsisters of Dathomir; this might mean the dark Asajj Ventress will be a part of the story right? Of course this is a rumor still, but if it's legit it sounds badass.

The Mandalorian culture & planet is explored really thoroughly in the Clone Wars series, which is now movie-level canon; they aren't a "Boba Fett army", but they'd be a terrific addition to the movie. I'm most excited about the idea of Sith witches.

Mandalorians?

That's cool. As long as there are no Midi-chlorians

So the prequels featured an army of Fett clones, now the sequels will feature an army of guys in Fett armour? Hilarious lack of imagination.

These guys are badass central. I love the idea of their culture and their code; it doesn't have to be Boba.

Let's just keep pushing Boba Fett further and further down the toilet. A once great side character has now been ruined. Shame.

Boba Fett has always been the most overrated character in the history of fiction.

I like Boba Fett and Darth Maul, but they don't need to be a part of this new trilogy. It always felt like pandering to the fans when the books or shows would bring them back. Give us a new villain. Honestly, I wish Abrams would have done that with Star Trek Into Darkness as well.
