Star Wars Fans, The Mandalorian is finally here.
The flagship series on Disney, Disney's New Streaming Service, The Mandalorian will be released a few years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – The Return of the Jedi and follows one Bounty Hunter (played by Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal) whose recent mission reveals a mystery that could have a significant impact on the Star Wars universe.
In each episode of The Mandalorian there is much to be said discussing action points from the episode in the following text, present this as Spoiler Warning . You can also view our abstract from Episode 1
Although the second episode of The Mandalorian was not heavy on major raveliers, much has happened in this chapter of the series. The still officially unnamed Mandalorian (although Pascal gave the character's name) fights against other bounty hunters en route to his spaceship, the Razor Crest, only to discover that the ship was disassembled by Jawas.
After an unsuccessful pursuit of the scavengers, he seeks help from Kuiil (the guy I talked to), who makes a deal with the Jawas: the stolen parts of the razor comb in exchange for the egg of a mudhorn, a massive creature, which nests in the area. The Mandalorian manages to kill the Mudhorn with the help of the small Yoda creature, who exercises a powerful command of power, and the pair leaves the planet Arvala-7 for unknown parts.
The Story In this episode, it was quite simple, but there were some recalls in ways that were featured in earlier franchise chapters.
Early on, the Mandalorian is ambushed by a group of Trandoshan bounty hunters pursuing the infant creature. The reptile species was first introduced in Star Wars: Episode V – The Imperium Strikes Back when Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk emerged in the group of Darth Vader to persecute the Millennium Falcon. The species later appeared in various tying stories and other chapters of the franchise, including the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars . (Entertaining fact: Bossk's suit in The Empire Strikes Back was recycled from a costume used in an early episode of the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who .)  The Jawas are a familiar sight for Star Wars fans as they celebrated their debut in the series' first-ever film. Although they have appeared frequently in films, television series, comics, and other projects over the years, this episode provided one of the first good insights into how the Jawas work in combat – something they are likely to encounter given the fact they are in harsh environments at home – and why their massive Sandcrawler vehicles are such an asset.
Kuiil, the character who supports The Mandalorian in the first two episodes of the series is a member of the Ugnaught species. Like the Tradoshans, these relatively short pork figures appeared for the first time in The Empire Strikes Back as workers and engineers working deep in the cloudy city of Bespin.
The Ugnaughts are known as untiring workers with tremendous skill in handcrafting, and have often been deployed in large engineering projects across the galaxy – usually as hired help, but also as slaves. Kuiil mentions to the Mandalorian that he has worked a lifetime to earn his freedom, and it seems that Ugnaught has found a life after work.
As mentioned in After reviewing Episode 1, an item of which we know next to nothing is the nature of the child. Star Wars creator George Lucas attached great importance to keeping Yoda's species a secret and only two members of the species ever performed in the Star Wars movies. The species has no official name, but since both representatives of the species that appeared on the screen were members of the Jedi Council, The Force seems to be strong with them.
Still a hokey religion
Neither Kuiil and The Mandalorian seem to understand the power the child is exercising in this episode, suggesting that knowledge about The Force at the time of the show actually disappeared from the universal consciousness is. This was the case in the first Star Wars when Luke Skywalker only learned about The Force through Obi-Wan Kenobi and Han Solo and dismissed this as nothing but a "hokey religion".
Nothing in this series seems to change either, since Finn and Rey did not know (or did not believe) the power at the time, as star Wars: Episode VII – The Awakening of Power plays. This movie takes place several decades after the events of The Mandalorian (and 30 years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi ), and awareness of The Force seems to have grown At this time completely gone.
It seems that Mandalorians have a bad habit of destroying anyone who crosses them. When notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett appears for the first time in The Empire Strikes Back with his signature Mandalorian armor, Darth Vader reminds him not to disintegrate anyone on the Millennium Falcon.
Given how liberal the Mandalorian uses his rifle to disintegrate Jawas in this episode, it seems that an affinity to turn enemies into a cloud of dust could go hand in hand with armor. (Note: Boba Fett himself was not a Mandalorian, but a clone of the human bounty hunter Jango Fett.)
The Mandalorian. The next episode will be premiered on the 22nd of November.
