We're introduced to IG-11, a droid that's the same model as IG-88 - one of the bounty hunters seen on Darth Vader's Super Star Destroyer in The Empire Strikes Back. We've also caught a glimpse of an Ugnaught - the porcine species previously seen working as janitors on Cloud City in Empire Strikes Back - named Kuill, who appears to be an ally of the Mandalorian.

Fans can't get enough, with some branding the show a "masterpiece."

Many have been said that the show trumps all the other Star Wars spin-offs, creating a quintessential Star Wars tone that mirrors that of the classics. A second season has already been announced. Find out more about one development that's got fans divided at the end.
