Source?   Because it is heavily implied that Cobb Vanth acquired Boba’s armour - at least some of it, from Jawas.

Or are you being facetious and disregarding all the other Mandalorians that wear armour like Bo-Katan, Sabine and her family, etc.?

He means exactly the opposite of how you read it. (i.e., the Fetts aren't Mandalorian, they just wear Mandalorian armour.)

Ahh..  I did misread that, if that is the intent.   

Sorry, I should have cited the source: In Clone wars, Obi-Wan asks about the history of Jango while on Mandalor, the government official states that Jango wasn't a Mandalorian, and they have no idea where he acquired his armor.

(This probably isn't very reliable, considering they "didn't know" about Death Watch, And how almost identical the Death Watch armor is to the way Jango is pictured in this episode. For me, it appeared that Jango is probably connected to DW, or he got the armor from a dead DW member.)

However, the "out of universe" source comes from Lucas himself and Pablo (guy in charge of canon) both have stated the the Fetts were not Mandalorians, but they wear the armor. Possibly to benefit from the legend of Mandalorian warriors.

I'm trying to pin down the thought process here:

1. Boba Fett is popular because he looks cool in his armor.

2. Boba Fett is declared to wear Mandalorian armor. He's the entire reason for Mandalorians existing.

3. Random throwaway line makes him not really Mandalorian despite him being the only reason Mandalorians exist.

Should have just retconned out Mandalorians altogether if you're gonna mangle crap up that badly.

I always took it as Jango being denied as Mandalorian.

But he was definitely Mandalorian.

That is what I took from that line, the Mandolorians have been trying to move away from their warrior roots and trying to be peaceful. That image would get a bit damaged if a renowned bounty hunter is a Mandolorian.

From Jon Favreau’s interview for the Directors’ Guild of America 

Favreau:  "Since I wrote most of [The Mandalorian], I wrote it to fit within our volume, and in trying to keep the scale of it like the first Star Wars film, which was a relatively low-budget affair, even though the effects were spectacular. "

Favreau:  “What's helpful now is that game engines that are built for gaming and drive VR are getting to the point where there's enough code in there to emulate all of these analog aesthetics that you would see when you were really moving a light around. So to some extent, we had it on Lion King—that was Unity on The Mandalorian, the stage set you visited me on—we ended up using an Epic game engine with these new Nvidia video cards for gaming. There's enough processing power to get all of these lighting effects so that you're actually seeing [it] in camera. You wouldn't have to explain to a DP, you could actually have him see it, so when I move the light, it reacts like they do in the real world. "

This is really fascinating, and makes good sense as well.

Rather than wish for another Game of Thrones (and I love GoT, but Disney is never going there with a core property), I’d rather them look at successful sci-fi shows of the past like Star Trek TNG. You can make a show geared at adults that can still run in prime time and be a huge hit. I think the entertainment industry is trying to make too many things funny or “dark” these days. No doubt a show about Mandalorians is going to have some grit,  but why not try to make a good solid Sci-fi drama. That’s what I’m hoping for.

Yeah absolutely.  “Adult” for me means intelligent and nuanced on a level above a child’s comprehension/experience, not “contains material unsuitable for children”.

Honestly I’m at an age now where I want to be able to watch good TV and not worry about a kid seeing what I’m watching, even if they don’t understand all of what’s going on.  This “race to shock” is getting really old.
