Mandalorian Proves Star Wars Has The Magic:
Star Wars might have hit a jackpot with their newest addition – The Mandalorian. The TV Show is a hit amongst the audiences. Star Wars fans love the action and the production value each new episode brings to the screen. The lead character, as well as Baby Yoda, is so lovable and relatable on screen. Star Wars, a dream that began with George Lucas, trying to show the world the magic of story-telling by combining it with amazing special effects backed by a strong and powerful storyline written by the best the writing world has to offer, continues with The Mandalorian.
The Mandalorian carries on the age-old tradition of Star Wars – Bringing something new to the table. It also builds up the world of Star Wars. The Galaxy far, far away has countless species and alien cultures, each that is unique and interesting and each part of the Galaxy is full of secrets that are waiting to be unveiled. It takes time and patience to create a storyline that gives us not only the famous action-packed sequences Star Wars is known for but also integrates the world-building aspects into it. There will always be critics that scoff at anything Hollywood makes. But on this point everyone has to agree – The Mandalorian captures the heart and soul of Star Wars in its entirety.
The Star Wars Universe is all about the Force and its connection with life. The Jedis and the Sith may be fiddling with two sides of the coin but the Force has always been a subject of discussion that has never been explored further. Star Wars always ends up creating a cult-like aura around the Force, turning it into a mysterious phenomenon that lies beyond human comprehension and so should never be understood. The Mandalorian was the first Star Wars Project to actually give us something that the other Star Wars productions could not – a deeper understanding of the force. Hell, it has made the Force one of their most important Mc-Guffins in The Mandalorian.
Another fact that we all would agree upon is that The Mandalorian is also giving us insights into the Mandalorian culture. The only Mandalorians we know are just three in number, the recent one being the Mandalorian him-self. How did the martial culture of the Mandalorians come into existence?! How are they so tough and rugged?!? Do they not like talking??? Not just the Mandalorians, it also shows us all the alien beings involved in the criminal underworld. After the fall of the empire, the entire Galaxy is facing an economic catastrophe. The Galaxy has resorted back to a primitive barter system.
But the Mandalorian explores more than just that. It tells us how people are dealing with the aftermath of the fall of the Empire. When Society all around you starts crumbling and Civil War breaks out, some people take up arms and fight while some people turn tail and run away. But there is always the third sect of people – a group of survivors that do not want to do anything with conflict. They just want to stay out of it all. They are not cowards. They are just trying to live to see another day in peace. Exploring such delicate psychology is the core of the Mandalorian’s eponymous character. And that is absolutely commendable.
We are in no way saying that The Mandalorian is the greatest masterpiece in the history of small-screen entertainment. But given Disney’s history of infamously forcing directors and production houses under its banner to stick to formulaic and archaic methods of story-telling, the Mandalorian is a huge step in the other direction! The Mandalorian is more than space ships, laser pistols, and aliens. It has dived into something way deeper.
The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular character and is directed by Jon Favreau. The Series was released on Disney+ on November 12, 2019. The official synopsis for the movie reads:
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. The series depicts a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
