The Mandalorian, the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise, is packed with action and well-timed humor. Created by Jon Favreau, this series is based on Star Wars by George Lucas. It is a story of a lone bounty hunter played by Pedro Pascal hired to retrieve “The Child.” Our Protagonist is called “Mando” and is known as an effective bounty hunter. The story continues five years after the story of Return of the Jedi released in 1983.

In the first episode, the bounty hunter searches for a well-paying client and ventures into an adventure. You will be mesmerized by the stunning visuals resulting from high-level production, visual effects, and set design.  The world is designed to look dirty, the classic feel of a Star Wars production. The second chapter continues as “The Child” answers some questions for us. The Mandalorian now takes on some scavengers. The series’ action then starts taking and exciting turns as Mandalorian returns to the client for the reward.   

The first two episodes act as the catalyst to hype up the third chapter, “The Sin.” The fifth chapter is titled “The Gunslinger,” where the Mando assists a bounty hunter. This episode, however, does not live up to expectations and starts to get a bit boring.  The pace of the story starts getting slower. But some comedic scenes later in the series make up for that. The final chapters of the first season have some emotional impact as the Mandalorian reforms his comrades to uncover their enemies. The enemies, on the other hand, start gathering information about the group. The first season ends with hints of more new adventures in the second season.

The show’s first season has some pretty impressive casts alongside Pedro Pascal — like Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, Werner Herzog, Omid Abtahi, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, and more. Carl Weathers plays the  role of Greef Karga, who is a bounty hunter guild leader, whereas Werner Herzog is “The Client.” Omid Abtahi plays the role of the client’s scientist named Dr. Pershing. All these casts play some important roles in the series to keep the buzz going.

Filmed at Manhattan Beach Studios in California, the backgrounds and visual effects live up to expectations. This live-action series received thorough direction of Dave Filoni, Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa, and Bryce Dallas Howard. This series created quite a buzz immediately after its release on Disney +Networks on the 12th of November, 2019.

The second season of The Mandalorian started on the 30th of October, 2020. Several rumors were stating the lead actor Pedro Pascal would not join the second season. Pedro Pascal is joined by actors Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, and Giancarlo Esposito as recurring roles. So far, we can also see actors John Leguizamo, Amy Sedaris, Timothy Olyphant, and Temuera Morrison in some significant roles in the second season.  Director Jon Favreau joins the directors’ line in the second season as he was busy with another project during the first season.

The first episode of the second season started with the words “enjoy the fights,” which is absolutely something to look forward to. We can expect a pretty thrilling adventure that speaks Star Wars franchise with the bounty hunter and Baby Yoda.
