The Mandalorian has completely won over viewers.

The series is set 5 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

Directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, best known for playing Claire Dearing in Jurassic World, The Mandalorian offers Star Wars fans a tantalizing new live-action spin-off of the beloved franchise.

The Mandolorian well and truly keeps the franchise alive – offering what many are describing as a “gritter” take on the universe.

Boasting an impressive star-studded cast including the likes of Narcos’ Pedro Pascal in the leading role, viewers watch as Dyn attempts to survive in the aftermath of the Empire’s collapse.

The show takes a much darker approach than other Star Wars spinoffs.

Far from the authority of the New Republic, we’ll get to see the adventures of the lone gunfighter as he reaches the outer edges of the universe. Meaning we’re bound to see some new, never-seen-before locales.

Because what would a Star Wars spin-off be without them?

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.

Writing for Forbes, Dani Di Placido said: “Only two episodes in, and The Mandalorian already feels more authentic, more Star Wars, than any of Disney’s film sequels.

The Mandalorian is slightly darker than what we’re used to, yet undeniably goofy, packed with peculiar creatures, gunfights that end in disintegrations, and environments that feel like Ralph McQuarrie concept art brought to life.”

Considering only 2 episodes so far have dropped on the site, that’s pretty good going.

Many have been saying that the show trumps all the other Star Wars spin-offs, creating a quintessential Star Wars tone that mirrors that of the classics.

Sadly, we can’t binge-watch the season (unless you’re patient enough to wait for them all to drop), but there’s no doubt that The Mandalorian has well and truly got fans hooked.

The baby version of the iconic character is one of the most adorable things we’ve ever seen.

The real Yoda died in Return of the Jedi, at about nine-hundred years old so while it may not seem it, fifty is pretty much newborn for this unknown species.
