In attesa di guardare l’ultimo capitolo di The Mandalorian 2, che verrà trasmesso su Disney + il 18 dicembre 2020, ci sono alcuni punti delle precedenti puntate da approfondire. Infatti, agli occhi più attenti non sono certo sfuggiti i continui rimandi alla saga cinematografica Star Wars.
Dopo il successo della prima stagione, The Mandalorian 2 è uscito su Disney + il 30 ottobre 2020. The first season had a huge following. It is the first live action series set in the world of Star Wars and the events take place five years after those narrated in the film Return of the Jedi and 25 years before the events of The Force Awakens. At the center of the story there are some characters inspired by the imaginary Star Wars, including Baby Yoda, who immediately won the audience but also Din Djarin, the Mandalorian bounty hunter. The TV series plays a lot with its audience, in fact there is no shortage of quotes to the film saga.
The Mandalorian 2: Star Wars quotes from the first episodes
The first episode was made available by Disney + on October 30 and is titled Chapter 9: The Sheriff. There is no shortage of time references here, such as the one about the fall of the Empire and the hatred for stormtroopers. In fact, murals depicting them appear already in the first episode. This allows the audience to orient themselves in time and better frame how and when the second season takes place.
But one of the "appearances" that has generated the most excitement is the armor of Boba Fett, a character who returns in the TV series. And he will not be the only one: we will also see Bo-Katan and Ahsoka Tano.
In short, since the first episode of The Mandalorian 2 there is a strong reference to the film saga.
Although all chapters are full of references, it is in Chapter 11: The Heir that we find some old acquaintances of Star Wars. Among them are the Mon Calamari, one of the alien species most involved in the rebellion against the Empire. They initially appeared in the movie Return of the Jedi. In addition, the Heir is one of the main episodes to understand the society of the Mandalorians and the narrative interweaving between the films and the series.
The quotes would be endless but let's end with the one from Chapter 14: The Tragedy. Star Wars fans won't have missed Jango Fett's old quote: "I'm just a simple man trying to make his way in the universe."
The phrase is repeated by Boba Fett to Din Djarin in The Mandalorian, but the character in this case adds "like my father before me" making a clear reference to Jango Fett.
Baby Yoda is not Yoda
What we find in the fifth episode, corresponding to Chapter 13 of the series and titled The Jedi is more a revelation than a quote. The news has aroused astonishment - and even a certain disappointment - in many fans who wanted to see in Baby Yoda (as he is affectionately nicknamed) a younger version of the Jedi master of the same name from Star Wars.
In reality Baby Yoda - or rather The Child - is not Yoda at all, even though he belongs to the same species. His likeness at first misled and made many fans "dream". In fact, his name is Grogu and is the only one, besides Din Djarin, who appears in all episodes of the series.
Both seasons of The Mandalorian are available on the streaming platform Disney + and the last episode will air on December 18, 2020. Who knows what Star Wars quotes will be in it.
