How Old is Boba Fett?

Boba Fett's age has changed over the years, and not just on his birthday.

TL;DR

In the current canon, Boba Fett is 10 in "Clones," 35 in "Empire," and 36 in "Jedi." Since "The Mandalorian" Season 1 is 9 ABY, but we don't yet know if Season 2 is the same year, this would make Boba Fett at least 41 years old.

While we can approximate Boba Fett’s age in non-canon timelines, how old is Boba Fett canonically and has it changed over the years?

In the canon timeline, we know Boba Fett was born circa Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (32 or 31.5 BBY), 10 years old circa Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (22 BBY), 13 years old circa Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (19 BBY), 32 years old circa Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (0 BY), 35 years old circa Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (3 ABY), and 36 years old circa Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (4 ABY).

Since The Mandalorian Season 1 is 9 ABY, but we don’t yet know if Season 2 is the same year, this would make Boba Fett at least 41 years old.

But where is this knowledge published in official documentation? That’s our quest with this page — to document the bounty hunter’s age.
