Hardly any series is currently celebrated like “The Mandalorian“. As soon as a new episode on Friday morning Disney+ is available for retrieval, Twitter is running hot. Star Wars fans in particular speak up and say thank you Show-Runner Jon Favreau for the successful implementation, what after all the complaints and discussions about the last Star-Wars-Filme quite a change.
The Mandalorian brings the old Star Wars feeling back to life and manages to serve hardcore fans of the franchise as well as casual watchers. If the first season was good, the current second season is a clear improvement, especially in terms of storytelling. The plot about the Kopfgeldjäger Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and his protégé Yellow, as Baby Yoda actually means, came to a head in the last few episodes and put the audience on the torture mighty.
Of course, Disney knows how to use the hype for itself, “The Mandalorian” is not only the driving force behind the streaming service, but also a real merchandising machine. There are cups in the shape of the Mandalorian helmet, baby Yoda dolls, even doormats for the apartment door. No fewer than ten new series were released on Friday Star-Wars-Universum announced for Disney +, of which with “Ashoka” and “Rangers of the New Republic“Two direct spin-offs from” The Mandalorian “are planned. A new Star Wars movie is also being shot.
Even Fortnite is currently under the sign of “The Mandalorian”
Until then, however, the Mandalorian remains the absolute top dog in the galaxy far, far away. Even the worldwide hugely popular online shooter “Fortnite“is currently all about” The Mandalorian “, as part of a cooperation you can shoot there in Din Djarin’s armor, among other things at the dark troops.
Actually an almost logical action, because “The Mandalorian” has obvious parallels with PC and console games. As in a game, the Mandalorian receives a new assignment in practically every episode, he travels to a planet, has to clear opponents out of the way and then flies to the next planet with the next assignment. And the same is true in the latest episode, the 15th chapter called “The Faithful”. Grogu is still in the hands of Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito).
To get the coordinates of his cruiser, the Mandalorian needs the help of Migs Mayfeld (Bill Burr)who is serving a term in a labor camp. Thanks to the powers of Marshal Cara Dune (Gina Carano) can the group with Din Djarin, Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) free the prisoner easily. In order to find out the location of Moff Gideon, however, he has to access an imperial terminal, which is located in a base on Morak.
A setting somewhere between Western and Vietnam film
This is building on the forest planet Imperium the highly explosive spacecraft fuel Rhydonium and transports it to the base in gigantic trucks. Din Djarin and Mayfeld hijack one of these trucks and disguise themselves as stormtroopers to infiltrate the base. However, the truck is ambushed by pirates.
How the Mandalorian fends off these reminds of them classic westernwhere the heroes fought over and over again on the roofs of trains. The whole setting in the jungle-like forests has something of one this time Vietnam war filmwhich is certainly not a coincidence, because the second half of the episode is also about Migs Mayfeld’s traumatic war experiences.
In general, things are different this time. While Boba Fett can only be seen in a few short scenes and is otherwise very reserved, Grogu does not appear at all. For this, for the first time ever, Pedro Pascal has to hold his face in detail in the camera, because a face scanner has to be outwitted. How uncomfortable is the Bounty hunter feels without his armor, has something funny and is also one of the highlights of the current episode.
Season finale next Friday: Confrontation with Moff Gideon is imminent
After the extremely exciting last episodes, “Der Getreue” is, despite the usual fast-paced action, more of an episode to breathe deeply, which focuses on a minor character with Migs Mayfeld and makes him go through an amazing change in the almost 40 minutes of playing time.
At the same time, the episode serves to big season finale prepare next Friday. Because the Mandalorian now knows where Moff has taken Gideon Grogu and at the end makes him an announcement as a cliffhanger, which means that a lot can be expected for the coming Friday.
To stay in the picture of the computer game analogy: the confrontation with the final boss is imminent, you can be prepared for a decent firework display.
