After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
It was Donald Glover who inspired Jon Favreau to keep Baby Yoda a secret until the first "Mandalorian" episode debuted on Disney+. During filming of the "Lion King" remake, Glover (who voiced Simba in that movie) told Favreau that audiences liked surprises. "We were talking about music and pop culture, and he was saying that what people really like now is to be surprised, because it doesn't happen that much" Favreau said. "When Beyoncé did an album, she would just put it online and everybody would react to it. Just putting it out there spurred a conversation that would become more viral and bring more genuine attention than any marketing." See more »
Kathleen Kennedy,JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson take notice. This is how you do Star Wars
This is Star Wars. It feels like Star Wars. It Looks Like Star Wars. Why is this such a tough concept for the geniuses associated with the films to get? No subversion's needed, no forced 8 yr old humor, no political agenda. Just make it look and feel like the original Star Wars trilogy and fans will be happy, its literally that simple.
