How Old is Boba Fett?

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

TL;DR

Canonically, he's 10 in "Clones," 35 in "Empire," and 36 in "Jedi"

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 born in 22 BBY ("The Phantom Menace"), so he's 10 in "Attack of the Clones," 13 in "Revenge of the Sith," 32 in "Star Wars," 35 in "The Empire Strikes Back," and 36 in "Return of the Jedi." If he was in "The Force Awakens," he would have been 66.

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