The Mandalorian takes place five years after the events of the Fall of the Empire and before the First Order emerged. It revolves around a lone gunfighter and bounty hunter named Din Djarin, otherwise known as the titular character The Mandalorian.
Since making its debut on the online streaming service Disney+ on November 12, 2019, the Mandalorian turned out to be one of the most positively well-received iterations of the highly popular 'Star Wars' franchise. And this is it just because the series became a hot topic for its breakout character "Baby Yoda", but the show was highly praised for its music, action, writing, characterization, as well as visuals.
And now that the first season concluded on December 27, 2019, fans have been awaiting the arrival of the second season with bated breath. But what is the plot going to be like? Will we get to bask in more of Baby Yoda’s cuteness? Will the Mandalorian carry on his mission? What kind of characters and environments will the title character encounter next? We’ve got the answers to all those questions right here in this post.
If you wish to press further, then buckle up and get ready for one heck of a ride.
The Mandalorian takes place five years after the events of the Fall of the Empire and before the First Order emerged. It revolves around a lone gunfighter and bounty hunter named Din Djarin, otherwise known as the titular character The Mandalorian. The story depicts the Mandalorian in the outer reaches of the galaxy which is quite far away from the New Republic’s authority.
Despite the uncanny resemblance and the fact that they are of the same species, The Child is not really Master Yoda himself. This is because the timeline of the television series takes place five years after ‘Return of the Jedi' and fans of the original film trilogy will know very well that Yoda himself passed away and became one with the Force. And while that may be the case, it's unknown right now whether The Child bears any relation to the infamous Jedi Master himself. Favreau refused to comment on the situation saying:
"Well, now you're getting into spoilers. I can't say. But there are a lot of theories about that." Fans will take that response in a number of ways because while Favreau didn't exactly deny it, he didn't also outright say that they're false. Of course, some fans may end up being wrong by the end of it, but right now, that remains to be seen.
Yes. The next season was announced right after the first episode had dropped on Disney+ by the Jon Favreau on his official Instagram page as shown below:
And as for when the second season will surface on Disney+, Jon Favreau gave a small update on his Instagram account right after the last episode aired on December 27, 2019:
As you can see, Favreau clearly writes fall 2020. This means fans are going to have to wait more than half of 2020 to shower Baby Yoda with as much parental love as they can.
As we learned from the final episode of season 1, the Mandalorian and his crew met up with someone known as the Armorer, who was trying to keep the remainder of the Mandalorian plan alive, or believed to have been wiped out by the Stormtroopers. After she explains everything to him, the Armorer marks his armor with a symbol – one that explains his next mission.
According to the season 1 finale, the Mandalorian Armorer on Nevarro informs the Mandalorian that he “must reunite” Baby Yoda or The Child “with its own kind.” This could very well mean that we might finally learn more about Master Yoda’s species something which George Lucas, for some reason, refused to explore. Although that task may be quite challenging since the Mandalorians consider Jedi to be “sorcerers” and their sworn enemies.
Sadly, the armorer could not provide the Mandalorian with any information regarding the location of Baby Yoda. She instead teased him by saying, “This you must determine.”
When we last saw Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) cutting himself out of his TIE Fighter at the end of the last season 1 episode, he used a blade that pretty much sounded like a lightsaber, but actually appeared different than some of the other swords that were used by either the Jedi or the Sith. This woman, in particular, appeared more sword-like in design, along with a black blade that was encapsulated by a bright glow. Star Wars fans might consider being this to be similar or identical to the legendary Darksaber.
The reason why this weapon bears so much importance is that it is especially crucial for Mandalorian storytelling. It was said to be originally created by the first Mandalorian warrior, Tarre Vizsla, who joined in the battle against the Jedi order.
