It had taken The Mandalorian six episodes, and now it has become the series that Disney had promised it would be. This was created by Jon Favreau, and is the very first live-action Star Wars series that focuses on the skilled bounty hunter DynJarren. His mission is to retrieve a mysterious client, and this had led the Mandalorian to break the Bounty Hunters’ Guild rules and smuggle baby Yoda back from The Client.
The last three episodes had brought the travellers to many places, and they met new people like Toro Calican, and Fennec Shand and Cara Dune . It is in the recent episode that The Mandalorian had lived up to its promise.
The Mandalorian’s marketing had teased an underworld where bounty hunters operate in, and this gave the fans a sense that the series would primarily be about Dyn and his missions where he met many adversaries. These trailers had sold the idea of seeing the main character going on adventures as an ingenious gunslinger, and he had focused on bounty hunting. While this show was somewhat faithful to this, the crux of the narrative is about Baby Yoda and the Mandalorian’s aim to keep him safe. While Baby Yoda is pretty adorable, his presence takes away the light from the lead character.
The Mandalorian has gotten a lot of positive reviews, but not everyone had been thrilled with the fact that this was different from the marketing. Now, episode 6 has presented a pretty different story, and this veers away from the mystery of Baby Yoda. While the outing had featured him, it had brought Dyn back to his roots, and he was reunited with his colleagues and was carrying out a mission. He had been thrust onto a team that does not like him, and they then turned against him. This gave the fans an opportunity to see what he was like as a lone gunslinger. It is now clear that he is more than capable of taking care of himself.
It is worth noting that Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon is also yet to make an appearance. The trailers had positioned him as an antagonist, but this does not seem to be the case. The Mandalorian is now in production for season 2, and the season finale will be directed by TaikaWaititi.
