The Mandalorian has come to Disney plus and brought with the Star Wars world a baby from Yoda’s species and a mystery man in a mask.
If you don’t want to read about the series before you’ve seen all eight episodes avoid all our Mandalorian tagged posts. You have plenty of time since they scheduled the new season release for NEXT FALL. *Ugh!*
Yes, folks like all things Star Wars, you must wait for your sequels to come in the following year. Will it be worth the wait? We think so and here’s why.
Normally, here on Dragons and Spaceships, we try to avoid spoilers but we’re throwing it out the window since they have released the entire series. We’d like to do episode breakdowns but let’s address the baby in the room.
If you’re fed up with the Yoda memes, you might be alone. People who couldn’t care less about Star Wars as a franchise has jumped on the Baby Yoda memes and they are EVERYWHERE!
Is it working? Yes. Because who doesn’t like babies? Apparently only StormTroopers.
The sight of Baby Yoda is enough to melt most hearts. If you’re not convinced, all you need to see is the very first episode to see how the child changes a robot-hating hardened Mandalorian bounty hunter into a babysitter.
The aesthetics of this show are familiar and nostalgic for those of us who grew up with the Star Wars Episodes IV-VI. Dusty planets and well-used spaceships, and buildings without glass or shiny facades.
Not excited yet? Don’t worry we’re breaking down every single episode right here. If you’re not convinced after that, then there’s nothing else we can do but hook you up to a heart monitor to see if you’re still alive.
Just for the record, the baby from Yoda’s species is NOT actually Yoda as a baby. How do we know? Do the math, silly, this young one was born at the same time as Anakin Skywalker in 4 BBY. So couldn’t possibly be the 900-year-old Yoda. But people like calling him Baby Yoda because he doesn’t have an official name yet.
