‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 Will Either Make or Break the ‘Star Wars’ Saga

After Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Lucasfilm seemed to take time wisely to learn from his mistakes. The sequel trilogy, after all, had deeply divided the fan base. So maybe the “far, far galaxy” could use some rebalancing. Of course, Am Mandalorian – first seen on Disney + the previous month The Rise of Skywalker – that changed abruptly.

‘The Mandalorian’ was the first animated series of the ‘Star Wars’ saga

Am Mandalorian always looking like a risky endeavor. As the first live action Star Wars TV series, it was always a big question whether the saga could sustain such consistent content. After all, the annual release of the new Star Wars movie proved to be a mixed bag for Lucasfilm in the end. But Am Mandalorian the mold broke, replacing the fan base instead of breaking it.

The story of bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and a mysterious child goes a long way to healing the affairs of most fans. Star Wars. While set in the film world, Am Mandalorian introducing new characters and exploring time between the original and sequel trilogies. After the fall of the Empire, the astronomy is very similar to the Wild West, a beauty that the show continues to follow.

Will the upcoming 11 ‘Star Wars’ projects overwhelm the fan base?

Since then Am Mandalorian fans were so well received, it was perhaps inevitable that the show would be the basis for more. After all, like Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios – another Disney – owned company – has plans to integrate Disney + movies and series. And with such a vast universe, Star Wars they could withstand more projects. Or at least he will try.

Nevertheless, Lucasfilm now has around 11 Disney + series on the way in the early 2020s. Unlike the trilogy sequel, at least there seems to be some sort of grand plan involved. Am Mandalorian producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni clearly know what they are doing. But after five consecutive years of Star Wars movies behind them, could 11 new shows overwhelm fans? We’ll see.
