Star Wars Explained: A Guide For Watching The Mandalorian
For an old Star Wars nerd, watching The Mandalorian is akin to visiting an old friend and reminiscing; there are things you remember well, but you can always take something away from how the stories are told.
However, I will also admit that my gray matter is not always up to the task of synthesizing all of the new information alongside remembering the old. And there is a whole lot of NEW information pouring out of The Mandalorian.
Thankfully, my friends over at Star Wars Explained are up to the task.
Listen to Alex and Mollie, You Will
Over on their fabulous YouTube channel, Alex and Mollie are synthesizing it all; original trilogy references mingle with the sequel and prequel tidbits. And, thank The Maker, they have an entire playlist of info on The Mandalorian.
That said, near all of it includes spoilers, so we’ll let all of you who haven’t yet seen the first two chapters of The Mandalorian disembark here.
Still here? As Darth Vader said, “Impressive. Most impressive.”
Everything You Need to Know About The Mandalorian
Have a watch of the playlist (in chronological order), with lead-ins by the Star Wars Explained crew:
The Mandalorian is almost out! Here is everything you need to know about the very first live-action Star Wars series!
The Mandalorian is finally out! Here is my review for the surprising first episode, simply titled Chapter 1.
Mollie and I still wanted to talk about the first episode of The Mandalorian, so this is our full discussion on the newest addition to the Star Wars universe!
The second chapter of The Mandalorian, titled The Child is out on Disney+! Here is my review of the episode.
We’re back with our untitled Mandalorian after show! Today we’re talking about Chapter 2: The Child.
And, believe it or not, there’s more. Star Wars Explained took care to, well, explain the first three trailers for The Mandalorian as part of the playlist, too.
In any case, be sure to have a watch as I am certain you’ll have a more complete understanding of the complexities of the series after a viewing of the vids.
