Bounty hunter Jango Fett was so good at his game that his clones were used to form two galactic armies. His son (also a clone), Boba sold his gun to the highest bidder. In his case, a Dark Lord of the Sith named Vader. Now, the tale of a third, yet-to-be-named Mandalorian will finally be told.
The Mandalorian focuses on an independent bounty hunter, set five years after the collapse of the empire, also known as the events of Return of the Jedi, for those not well-versed on Star Trek lore. Twenty-five years before the emergence of the First Order, the series will follow the travels of this lone-gunfighter selling his trade in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic. Written and created by Jon Favreau and featuring a star-studded cast including Giancarlo Esposito, Nick Nolte, and Pedro Pascal, this anti-hero led series offers yet another fantastic tale set in the Star Wars universe.

The Mandalorian Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- “Left with mostly just his voice to act with, Pascal gives Mando some hints of snarkiness, if not humor; by and large, he comes off as a business-first ballbuster. (And truth be told, no one wants a quippy Mandalorian.) Weathers and Herzog fit comfortably into this world, in their brief intros, and it’d be great to see more of Nolte’s Kuiil.” –Matt Webb Mitovitch, TVLine
- “The Mandalorian offers gorgeous production design, vivid world-building, an adorable baby creature and a hilariously broad performance by far-out filmmaker Werner Herzog in a small but memorable villain role. Though the first three episodes move slowly, the combination of glacial plot development and ample combat gives them a sort of comic-book feel.” –Judy Berman, Time
