When it comes to reviewing TV shows and movies, things can occasionally get out of hand by posting a spoiler. We won’t do that here. Although we are somewhat late to the party, I think there is still time to talk about this for the viewers who are still questioning if it is worth the $7 of their American currency. Disney+ definitely did it the right way by launching itself and including the Star Wars spin-off show with it. The Mandalorian, starring Pedro Pascal, is going to be huge and we can confirm this by watching Episode 1. Hence, without further ado, let’s talk about its review!
The Mandalorian Episode 1 Is About Shades of Grey
The Mandalorian timeline sets at the time after the Empire toppled. Vulture confirmed this as well who say that the events of the story take place after ‘Return of the Jedi’, and before ‘The Force Awakens’. Episode 1 of the show begins on an icy planet with some ice-cold feelings. The show is built around the Star Wars bounty hunter concept. The Mandalorian, the guy who appears every time you search the show on the Internet is proof that the show is not going to be about good vs evil.
Episode 1 of the Star Wars spin-off displays several shades of grey. We have a tight-lipped bounty hunter who takes his job very seriously. His profession states that he will not question his clients and will deliver at the right price. The Mandalorian promises a detailed visit of alien planets, something that we haven’t seen in Star Wars lately.
Well, that is all the spoiler that we can give to you regarding the pilot episode for The Mandalorian. At this point, there is nothing much that the show gave to us except for drama and a bit of action. The hyper-speed drive of typical Star Wars movies seems to have taken things to cruise mode as the story progressed at a pretty mild rate. 39 minutes of the show by Taika Waititi and written by George Lucas tempts to offer much more ahead. Don’t take me wrong, the pilot was NOT boring!
Disney+ Keeps Star Wars Feeling Well Intact in The Mandalorian
One thing for certain is that Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian seems to have kept its trend of hopping planets. However, can we truly blame the show when the entire cannon movies and the animated shows have given us exactly this? Fortunately, this new show, starring Gina Carano and Pascal, did slow down the pace of it though, we can give this much credit.
Too long, didn’t read? Well, our review is that the show looks promising for those who want to explore the Star Wars universe much deeply. A storyline that turns away from the Jedi v. Sith and Empire v. Rebels seems interesting.
The Mandalorian is available to stream now on Disney+.
