TV Review: The Mandalorian (Disney+) – Season One

Created by Jon Favreau and released on Disney+, The Mandalorian is the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise. Set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and 25 years prior to the events of The Force Awakens, it follows the title character, a Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), and his exploits beyond the reaches of the New Republic.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, The Mandalorian is a great spin-off to an immensely entertaining saga. It’s not as much of an epic adventure as the films are, but it’s an action-packed space-western that builds on the universe well.

Telling the story of its titular character and his mission, it’s an interesting chapter that draws you into the world of Star Wars even more. With a similar tone to the original films, it feels like a fresh but welcomed throwback rather than an over-hyped reboot.

Although Djarin doesn’t take off his mask, I absolutely loved Pedro Pascal‘s performance. Gina Carano is great, too, and yes, Baby Yoda is very cute.
