Ashoka Tano; few characters in Star Wars have had such a complex journey, both in-universe and in the real world. When she debuted in the pilot movie for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, people thought she was an annoying tag-along that would die before the show’s end; she did, but it didn’t stick. Twelve years later, though, and this former Jedi turned rebel stands as one of the franchise’s greatest heroes. Now, after months of speculation, and two weeks since the name drop in “The Heiress”, the fans wish came true.
Ever since he was introduced back in “The Reckoning”, fans have been asking questions about the new villain, Moff Gideon. We know that he’s dangerous and that he wants to get ahold of Baby Yoda, but why? What’s his endgame or master plan? After seeing the latest episode, I have a theory as to what Moff Gideon’s plan is…and it’s not good for anyone.
Oh, yes; this is the stuff that I’ve been wanting to get out of The Mandalorian! After last week consisted of attack of the ice spiders, it felt like the show lost some of its steam. However, it not only got said steam back this week, but went into overtime. Since there’s no way for me to talk about this episode without spoiling it, I’m going to assume that if you’re reading this, then you already watched the episode. That, or you don’t care about spoilers. Buckle up for ‘The Heiress’, because it’s going to tie back to some fan-favorite shows in Star Wars.
Last week, we saw The Mandalorian begin its sophomore season with as big a bang as possible. There were explosions, Tusken Raiders, a giant Krayt Dragon, and the return of … Continue Reading This week on ‘The Mandalorian’: SPIDERS!
In the months since the season finale of The Mandalorian, Star Wars fans have been active online trying to speculate on what could happen in Season Two. While the jury’s out on Ashoka, the season premiere just confirmed the return of a certain legendary bounty hunter. The original Mandalorian himself, back from the dead.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian Returns October 30th. After the year we’ve had, you have no idea how relieved I am to have seen this: The Mandalorian, the show that gave … Continue Reading This is the Way
They are the pinnacle of horrible parenting at it’s absolute worst. Happy Father’s Day everyone, and today, I wanted to take a look at some examples of characters that I consider to be the worst dad’s in fiction. Whether they neglected their children or were verbally or physically abusive to them, these are the deadbeats that Child Protective Services would love to put behind bars. That is, if they could.
At the end of last year, I dubbed 2019 as the “Year of Endings”. With the year now almost over, I’m looking back at some of the things we said goodbye to this year.
Even though the middle part of the season stumbled a bit, The Mandalorian manages to find redemption in its season finale. And a lot of action.
After episodes of being hunted down by other bounty hunters, Karga reaches out to Mando with a peace offering: help get rid of the Stormtroopers, and they’ll be square. Since this is an obvious trap, Mando brings some backup.
This may be the most fanservice based episode of the Mandalorian yet. Mando helps break a criminal out of a New Republic prison ship with help from some jerks.
Even though it’s been in four of the films and several books and shows, the Mandalorian chooses to go to Tatooine this week.
If even South Park, which can be very critical of how Star Wars is done, loves Baby Yoda and The Mandalorian, then you know that it’s good.
When the Mandalorian tries to find refuge for Baby Yoda, he gets involved in an Old Western Stand-Off to save a village from raiders.
Star Wars, The Mandalorian, Episode 3 Review If there’s one thing newcomers to Star Wars need to know about the Mandalorians, it’s that they’re a warrior people. They’re some of … Continue Reading That Is the Mando Way
Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilms, and with it, Star Wars, I’ve kept a skeptical eye on where the company takes the franchise. Then they axed the Expanded Universe and thirty plus years of extra content that they’ve yet to make up for. They may have given us Thrawn back, but I won’t be satisfied until I see the return of Revan! However, I think Disney’s starting to step up, and a big example would be the new show, The Mandalorian.
