The Mandalorian season 2: Jon Favreau shares the first shot from set

So, this edition of The Mandalorian comes in at less than half-an-hour, and definitely feels like less of an experience for it, giving me a vibe that Disney didn't want to batch release episodes of this program for a reason.

The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal has revealed the real name of the titular bounty hunter that he portrays in the new Star Wars spinoff series on Disney+, far sooner than expected. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. So there's great puppetry, there's great audio effects. The director doesn't subscribe to most streaming services, and he says he might not watch The Mandalorian, noting that he'd have to sign up for Disney+ to see it.

Because the creature, which the internet started calling "Baby Yoda", is freaking adorable. "And I'm not going to say who I would be interested in", he continued.

From there, a amusing, but not too goofy scene involves the titular character meeting Kuiil (Nick Nolte) on his way to securing this new enigmatic bounty. I was really adamant on more Finn involvement. After a few more scenes demonstrating his abilities, the Mandalorian bounty hunter takes a job from a fallen Imperial officer, still clinging onto whatever power he can.

Since the Mandalorian didn't end up killing the target (and actually shot IG-11 in the process), this suggests that the baby is will be very likely, an essential part of the story as it progresses. It was nice to see that Waititi could provide the voice for a character that wasn't as goofy as Marvel's Korg. In sure, we get our biggest have a look at how the Aqualad go properly with interprets onscreen in live-action kind. "I knew what was expected of me - I knew the interior landscape of the character and I knew the exterior landscape". "The Mandalorian is already proving to be a big thing, so if that series proves to be so compelling that we reverse engineer it into a theatrical release, a two-hour film or whatever, O.K.", he told Variety. I simply assumed he just lived longer.

Whatever happens, baby Yoda seems to have far reaching implications beyond just "The Mandalorian" show, and into the broader Star Wars universe.

I'm not sure if The Mandalorian meant to create fan service moments with the scenes where its protagonist shot Jawas to dust, but I was practically applauding in my seat. Even Boba Fett's beat up armor in comparison to the shiny, meaningful pieces worn by our Mandalorian hint at this.

We know that Yoda (and presumably his entire species) are chock full of Midochlorians, those wonderful little things that indicate Force sensitivity. It's possible Baby Yoda is trying to heal the Mandalorian with the Force. When another fan suggested that the franchise had "done Finn dirty" by deciding to "push him to the side", Boyega replied with clear dismay: "I really didn't know many fans felt this way". But those who wish to dig a little deeper will also be rewarded, as the show is jam-packed with Easter eggs and tiny moments that satisfyingly build upon Star Wars' rich lore.
