- This article is about the television series. For the species, see Mandalorian.
The Mandalorian is a 2019 American space Western television series created by the guy who directed Iron Man for the company that should just stick to animated princess movies, Disney+. It is the first series set in the Star Wars universe (live-action that is, cause The Clone Wars and Rebels exist and are great) and is set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). It stars Pedro Pascal, who before this was pretty much a nobody (not that Nobody, that's Bob Odinkirk), as the character The Man De Lorian who is a child smuggler on the run after he kidnaps the love child of Jedi Master Yoda and Yaddle.
Cast and characters
- The Man De Lorian, or for the French audience, The Man dé Lorian, or for the ghetto audience, The Man Da Lorian: the character was named after Doc Brown (the guy from Back to the Future not the rapper) who used a Delorean for the purpose of time travel or something, however, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni did not think the name was masculine enough, so they made it more "manly" by literally adding 'Man' to the start of it. Genius!
- Goku: (not to be confused with the Dragon Ball character) who is also known as Baby Yoda, Baby Unknown Tridactyl Species and Yeed among Star Wars fans or simply just referred to as 'The Kid' in universe. An escapee of Order 66, eater of frogs, and likes to choke.
- Bow Katana: the former (animated) princess of Mandalore, who is now played in live-action by the same voice actor. After not being in the third season, and only being in two episodes of season two, she becomes the main character of the third season for no reason.
- Griffin Cargobob (Griff Cargo for short): is one of a handful of black people in the Star Wars franchise. In season 1 of the show, Mr Cargo is the manager of a Bed and Breakfast on the planet Nevarro. However in the post-credits scene of "Chapter 8: Very Cool Climax (Is what I wish my girlfriend says after sex)", his hotel is closed down by a Health Inspector due to a Womp Rat infestation which was teased in "Chapter 5".
- Can't Dune: Can't, real name Caramel, took her last name from the 2021 movie Dune which inspired the 1977 Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (not the book, cause nobody reads books). She was sacked from the show for having larger biceps than Pedro, despite all of the metal stuff he wears.
- Moff Fring: After his supposed death by the hands of Walter White aka Hisenburg, Gus Fring travels to a galaxy far, far away. He then meets a bummed out Darth Vader after his fight with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar. The two go into business together and open an intergalactic chain of Los Pollos Hermanos which Man De Lorian frequents during the show.
- IG-69: is Man De Lorian's sex robot which is repurposed into Goku's nanny.
- Boobs N Feet: After getting the best blowjob of his life by a Sarlacc Pit, Boba Fett now going by Boobs N Feet, meets Fox Sharp and the two then team up for plot convience to the story only to be given their own spin-off show.
- Fox Sharp: is the first Star Wars character (besides the main cast of the main movies) to go from live-action to animated form unlike Bo-Katan and Ahsoka Tano who managed to go from animated to live-action.
Pascal spends nearly the entire series inside of a helmet. This was intentional as they used a stunt double on set while filming scenes that featured The Man De Lorian. To save even more money on production costs, Pedro didn't even record his lines inside of a booth but instead while on a phone call with Favreau. This is evident in the final version due to the fact that the audience can clearly tell that the voice was added post-production as the lipsyncing with the helmets' lips were off as well as the body language. For the final episode of season 2, it was clear that the emotional send-off was not working with the helmet over Pascals' face, so they invited Pedro to be on-set for the first time to fake cry.
Gina Carano firing
After the second season, Can't Dune actress, Gina Carano, was fired from the show after it was revealed that she was a former wrestler. "It explains why she fit the character so perfectly," creator Jon Favreau said of the incident. "But this is a Disney show, so we can't be endorsing any violence."
Despite being based on and set after the original Star Wars trilogy, The Mandalorian was also the catalyst for kick starting the live-action Disney Star Wars television universe that nobody wanted. The Book of Boba Fett being the first, which follows Mr. Feet and his quest to become the King of Candyland. Ahsoka came soon after, that is, if two years is 'soonish' for you. After that was Skeleton Crew, which can only be described as the The Walking Dead: World Beyond set in space.

During the fight, Goku's egg cage is damaged and the little green man crawls out. Instead of escaping, Goku instead raises his hand at the beast and get this, the thing starts to float!

He returns to The Germans hideout, murders all of his Stormtroopers, takes the Kid from some random, unimportant, Doctor guy, shoots fucking missiles out of his wrists and leaves.

Mando, quickly realising the mistake he just made, shoots the camels toe before getting shot by a sniper. Mando and eToro use the sand for cover, which is rough and course and gets everywhere. The two hunters finally get to Sharps location and hold her at blaster-point. eToro attempts to arrest her but she does some sort of ninja kick and her foot goes straight through his chest, killing him and lowering the chances of him taking Goku hostage later down the line.

Season 4 (2024)
|Title||Directed by||Written by||Original release date|
|25-32||1-8||"Season Four"||Jon Favreau||2024|
|Jon Favreau confirmed a fourth season in May 2022. Why? Money.|
The reception to show, mainly the first two seasons, hailed it as the greatest Star Wars show ever created, that is, until Andor came out. The three year gap between the second and third seasons also dwindled viewership, and caused Jon Favreau to rush the scripts for Chapters 17 through 24, making countless plot holes and a main story line that only came to fruition in the last two episodes. Spin-off shows like The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka take characters who appeared in the second season, in order to "expand on the universe and lore."
