The Mandalorian live action television series premiered last year on Disney+ with eight episodes. The series was so successful that a second and third season was scheduled as well. The first episode of Season 2 was released on October 30th with the title, The Mandalorian – Chapter 9: The Marshal. This season will also have eight episodes in total, released every Friday until mid-December.
The story of The Mandalorian is set five years after the events of 1983 film, Return of the Jedi, depicting the fall of the Empire. The Mandalorian follows a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. At some point in his career, he is hired to retrieve a Force-sensitive creature only referred to as “The Child” (also called Baby Yoda by fans), and chooses to go on the run to protect it and reunite it with its kind. They are pursued by the main antagonist of the series named Moff Gideon.
In Season 2 of The Mandalorian, we continue following the main characters on their adventures. As I mentioned above, Chapter 9: The Marshal already aired on Disney+, and subsequent episodes will be released every Friday. I don’t want to spoil the story, but it’s a great continuation of the saga and didn’t disappoint. Below, I have included the trailer for the second season.
LEGO released several sets related to The Mandalorian, most notably the #75254 LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Raider, the #75267 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack, and the #75292 LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest. LEGO also released a large brick-built version of Baby Yoda in the #75318 LEGO Star Wars The Child, and a LEGO BrickHeadz version in the #75317 LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian & The Child set. If you haven’t gotten them already, all of these sets are still available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
With the popularity of both The Mandalorian TV show and the related LEGO sets, I’m sure that we will get even more sets related to the series either at the end of this year or early next year, but what these will be is not yet known. If you like the story, I recommend picking up at least the #75267 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack (because it features four different very cool Mandalorian armor designs), and the #75292 LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest (because it comes with the main character and his awesome ship, and because it’s the only set with a very cute minifig version of Baby Yoda).
