You can stand exactly where Boba Fett stood if you stop by for a short hike in Simi Valley, California.
BFFC member Brandon “B.Done” Blevins shared with us some of his detective work, finding the exact filming location of where Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) finally confronted Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) in “The Mandalorian.” It’s also not a huge secret — others have found and shared the location by now, too. But this is uniquely from a Fett fan’s perspective.
Note that, for all of the comparison shots, the lens and camera height will not match perfectly, but you can definitely line up the geography. Also, official Star Wars productions love to employ visual effects to add this and remove that too.
“It’s actually only about a mile in,” notes Blevins. Normally the hike is 4.6 miles out and back, so depending on how much time you’ve got, you have options. For these photos, you’ll want to head toward Oven Mitt Rock, which you can find on the Google Maps version to the right after a little ways in.
“You begin to go between a small crevasse between two small peaks and it’s on the right. You have to see where Fennec Shand was scoping on the ridge.”
“Then behind that rock is where she ran across being shot at. Directly behind that long rock is where the rest was filmed!”
Rocky Peak Park is free and open to the public. It’s part of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy in cooperation with the Mountain Recreation and Conservation Authority and the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District. Be sure to follow all signs, especially for parking. It also goes without saying: please be respectful of nature.
