THE MANDALORIAN

The_Mandalorian

As a devout Star Wars fan, I watched The Mandalorian show and I love it so far! The main character is like a space version of Clint Eastwood. In particular, the protagonist resembles the version of Clint Eastwood from The Unforgiven, who is a morally ambiguous gunslinger. I am glad that they brought back several things from the Old Expanded Universe in this show. For example, we got to see Beskar iron in live action for the first time. Beskar is an indestructible metal that not even lightsabers can cut through and Mandalorians often forge weapons and armor from it. The main character also displayed a trait that I like about Mandalorians: despite being battle-hardened warriors, Mandalorians have a soft spot for children. In the Old Expanded Universe, it was customary for Mandalorians to adopt orphaned children from battlefields and raise them as their own. As the old Mandalorian saying goes, “family is stronger than blood.” Apparently, the main character is continuing this age-old Mandalorian tradition by rescuing and adopting an infant from Yoda’s species. I also like how the show illustrates how some Imperials who were not assimilated into the First Order were reduced to being warlords and mercenaries, clinging on to whatever power and influence they could. I look forward to seeing how the show will progress because I am loving it so far. Hopefully, we will see the epitome of another Mandalorian saying, “a warrior is more than his armor.”
