I can imagine that, many years in the future, there will be people who are watching The Mandalorian in what appears to be the proper sequence. They’ll move from the Season 2 finale on to the Season 3 premiere, and wonder how Grogu can be back and where Mando got his new ship from. Then months later they’ll try Book Of Boba Fett out of curiosity and go, “Oh, so THIS is where that happened?”
Koska Reeves the female Mandalorian becomes an instant fan favorite despite her low facetime. She is played by WWE superstar Mercedes Varnado aka Sasha Banks. Everything goes full circle now because when she was still wrestling in NXT she was about to be fired but William Regal risked his job to beg for her to be not released. Despite being a big star in the making, WWE had sidelined her over the charisma vacuum Charlotte Flair. Now she could be the biggest Star of WWE who still works for the company.
The book of Boba Fett is another Star Wars Spin off series. Boba Fett only has 6 minutes of screen time but he is a phenomenon with a community of fans. This character is popular enough to sell merchandise and now he is popular enough to have a spin off.
First off, before you read any further, it should go without saying that this article contains spoilers for the ending of The Mandalorian’s second season. So if you haven’t seen the ending yet, I’m not quite sure what you’re doing on a page with a headline like this, but if you proceed we can’t be held responsible for the surprise being ruined. So that being said, let’s proceed…
Disney projected that over 10 million subscribers will tune in to the adventures of Mando and Baby Yoda. Over 100 million subscribed to Disney+ because of the Mandalorian’s season two. Yoda was in the first instance, the typical wise old man character trope. The first trailer of the Star Wars prequel portrayed him in a different light as a cute baby. He becomes a phenomenon in social media,Everyone wants a Baby Yoda.
We are drifting ever so closer to the October 30 release date for The Mandalorian on Disney+, and as of today, we finally have a good look at what’s coming. From this viewpoint, it looks to be just as excellent as what came before it.
We should feel fortunate we’re getting Season 2 of The Mandalorian on schedule…filming wrapped just four days before Hollywood was put into lockdown due to the pandemic. While this did make the post-production process trickier, there was enough breathing room to make the deadline, and so we’re getting the continued adventures of Mando and The Child (better known as “Baby Yoda”) this October as promised.
I can’t speak for everyone, but I personally thought Season 1 of The Mandalorian was great. It’s the best thing that’s been done with the Star Wars universe in quite a while, and much better than any big-screen effort that’s come out recently. Now that the eight episodes of Season 1 have been released, the only question on everyone’s mind (besides that stick The Moff was holding) is….will we get more, and when?
With all the vicious infighting that happens within the Star Wars fandom, it’s a miracle we found something we can all agree is awesome: Baby Yoda. Rise of Skywalker is virtually guaranteed to generate months and months of “I hated this” flame wars and disavowments of the current canon, but Baby Yoda can silence all haters with one wave of his chubby little hand.
If there’s anything more exciting than the Pulitzer Prize I just won for coming up with that headline, it’s our first big look at Star Wars: The Mandalorian…..the one series attracting the most attention and hype out of anything on Disney+. Even the numerous High School Musical revivals.
Earlier this year, the news broke that Disney was looking into a live-action Star Wars series. Such plans have been announced before (back when Lucasfilm was its own entity) with no follow-up…but these are the days of Peak TV, when endless entertainment outlets need as much content as they can grab. Thus, we may finally get a live-action show set in the Star Wars universe, and it’s about a Mandalorian.
