Fifth Element, The Easter Egg - Boba Fett Reference

The mercenary aliens in "The Fifth Element" are described as having been persecuted by the government. JEAN-BAPTISTE EMMANUAL ZORG (head bad guy): "So what if the federal government scattered your people to the winds..." They are referred to as Mandalores by a federal general who is listening to the broadcast of the fight aboard the luxury liner.
Mandalore is the name of the planet and people of which Boba Fett is one. The Mandalorians are mercenaries who were made without home by the Galactic Empire which turned Mandalore into a conscription planet. They fight against the empire.

ACTUALLY: it's madaloriannnyisonglshsss, and is meant as a reference to Bruce Campbell when he bought a cheese burger in 1972. This is really interesting, because none of those things have ANYTHING to do with eachother. WOW! That is SOOOO COOL!!! OR it could be about that word "empastic" mentioned in Leonard Maltin's book, "Why I wear a beard" because none of the letters in that word apear in madaloriannnyisonglshsss, except for a, which is the first letter in the alphabet, and m, which is the 13th, and s, which is the 19th letter, and i, which is the 9th, and when you add all those together you get 42, and when you subtract 37 from that, you get 5!! "the FIFTH Element"!!!!! AND "empastic" is the 37th word in Leonard Maltin's book!!!! Holly Cow! That is TOTALLY AMAZING!!!

I've just come back to look at this egg after I posted my comments a while back (see above) and I cant believe how far off the beaten track this debate has gone. Lets go back to the EGG and the TWO proceeding comments. Matt, who claims this is an egg, is immediately corrected by Duckman, who tells him the name mentioned is 'Mangaloids'. Matt then goes on to say the name is actually 'Mangalores' and suggests that changing the 'G' to a 'D' gives you Mandalores? THIS ISN'T EVEN AN EGG, surely by changing letters and claiming words sound similar, discredits this from the beginning, and has anyone else noticed that Matt has never been back to defend his egg? Do respond Matt.

BonHed is correct. Boba fett was once called Jaster Mereel, a Journeyman from the planet Concord Dawn until he was exiled for killing a man. He then took up the Bounty Hunter trade and liked the cool gizmos that went with the ancient Mandalorian armour. Got this info. from Star Wars - Tales of the Bounty Hunters.

How are you guys absolutely sure of what you're writing about? Unless George Lucas took a pen to all of the books or programs that you're mentioning, who's to know what his idea of boba fett was while creating him. The best that can be offered to support any of your arguments is that Lucas gave the rights to the companies, such as dark horse comics. A word to the wise, don't believe everything that you read.

Ok lets get this overwith... The Mandalorian's are from the Mandalore System and they are basically a connection of tribes (Lead by the Warlord Mandalore) who work as mercenaries (i.e. they were hired to exterminate the Jedi's under The Clone Wars) In The Clones wars they were hired by the empire to slay the Jedi's (Or so suspected, we'll see in the upcoming films) but they lost and the only survivors were: Fenn Shysa, Tobi Dala and Boba Fett. How the armor ended up at Jaster Mereel is NOT KNOWN. He probably took the name of it's former owner to gain more fame and seem more tough. (Lucas has something in mind I think) and what happened to Shysa and Dala is a mystery, most likely one of them got killed and thus Jodo Kast got a armor, but who knows. Personally I thought it would have been much more cooler if Boba Fett was a remaining Mandalorian...=)

STOOOOPP This is suppose to be about 'The Fifth Element' NOT Boba Fett, Anyway Babaloo Boba Fett did not die coz according the star wars behind the magic he is the only person who has ever escaped from the PIT. and they ARE called Mangalores in The Fifth Element, I've got and read the book, I've got and read the script, I've seen and herd the movie. But what i do have to say is that at the end of the movie it is Ruby that has no fire but in the book and script its David why is that?

In the Star Wars 'universe' there are many stories where boba came from - but most says he is a Mandalore - from their special commando's - they aren't that much of an ancient race as they fought in the clone wars. And in the film they say Mangoloids - don't know if that differs from the script but it is what they say - and I have never heard that ref to the bible

When referring to TV or movies, the term "bible" can refer to the original publication or treatment that lays out the basic framework of the movie: plot, characters, etc. THese are often made a vailible to the public after release. Unless I am mistaken, this is probably the "bible" being made reference to, not the holy book of Christianity.

SilverFaerie, No he's not a Mandalore. I've given a reference for why I say so: Star Wars - Tales of the Bounty Hunters, what's your reference to saying he is??

Sorry Matt and Silver Faerie, but Davey and BonHed are correct. Boba Fett was originally a man named Jaster Mereel, a young journeyman protector exiled from his home world of Concord Dawn, for murdering an immoral and corrupt colleague. Little is known where Fett aquired his Mandarilian armour, but he is not a Mandalore. Mandalore was a mercenary warlord who lived 4000 years before Star Wars, Episode IV,(sounds like a pretty ancient race to me, Karrde). He conquered a planet that now bears his name. He was a model for the Mandalorian supercommandos of later generations who also wore full face metal masks to imitate him. Source "STAR WARS Behind The Magic, CD ROM. I hope this clears it up for you all.

I believe that Boba Fett has always gone by the name of Bobba Fett. Was not Jaster Mereel The guy who also wore a suit of mandalore armor, and was then killed by bobba fett. Or was that Jodo Kast? someone post something to straighten this Out.

Michael writes:
All evidence points to the fact that Boba Fett was previously Jaster Mereel. According to "Star Wars Galaxy Magazine" Jodo Kast was another bounty hunter, less skilled than Fett, who worked the Outer Rim Territories, and sometimes passed himself off as the real Fett to gain higher bounties. A confrontation between the two finally came to a head, when Fett lured Kast into a trap on Nal Hutta. Jodo Kast was ultimately dispossed off. See "Boba Fett, Twin Engines of Destruction", Dark Horse Comics.

Lone Star is right. But a remaining tidbit is that Mandalorian Armor must've been somewhat easy to come by: Grand Admiral Thrawn gets ahold of it (before he became a Grand Admiral) and impersonates Jodo Cast, who had been in turn impersonating Boba Fett. And it is UNKNOWN whether or not Jaester Mareel was a Mandalore. But we will find out when Episode II comes out, as Boba Fett is supposed to have a large role in it, according to producer Rick McCallum.

A few quick notes about Boba Fett... The Jaster Mereel (sp) story in Tales of the Bounty Hunters is the most widely accepted one, but, since it wasn't written by Lucas himself, it's not a canon source of information. There is a second story that I've heard of, but I've yet to actually come across it. His armor, with all the little gadgets and gizmos, didn't come that way. Much of it was added by him and custom made. It only makes sense, because 4000+ year old armor wouldn't do Fett very much good, as many of the neat things in his armor probably wouldn't have existed when the Mandalorians made them, or they would be severely outdated.

I wouldn't say they are somewhat easy to get a hold on, because if so everyone would have one! But they can be found if you look hard enough...and if you have enough cash.

Drop, you are forgetting something. The Mandalorian's did not die 4000 years ago. They were slayed in The Clone Wars...and if you remember Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker both fought in it. (Also Bail Organa, the man Obi-Wan gave Leia to hid her from the now evil Anakin). And the Mandalorian's had some of the most advanced armory in the galaxy, but yes maybe Jaster/Fett did modify some of his armor.

Actually they were referred to as "Mangaloids" which according to the bible were a race of big, stupid human like creatures that were war-like and had huge bald heads and huge slanting foreheads.

Wait a second. Just looked up the script and they are referred to as "Mangalores." Switch the "g" with a "d" and you've got "Mandalores." Not "Mangaloids." What you describe as a Mangaloid sounds more like Mongoloid, and which bible was this you were reading? I still maintain the relevance of my egg. Not that it had been questioned mind you. The connection goes beyond two words sounding similar.

Boba Fett was not a Mandalor. He wore an ancient suit of armour of the Mandalorian race, which was an old race. They were renown for their powerful suits of armour.

Funny, I always thought that Fett was an ex-Stormtrooper. Guess I learn something new every day.

Bruce Willis partly owns the Planet Hollywood restaurant chain. Unless you live in a remote rural area you will have seen one in Australia - there are plenty of them.
