The first season of The Mandalorian was groundbreaking when it was first released on new streaming service Disney Plus, and in the aftermath of fans singing their praises for the show, it would appear it is now being critically acclaimed too.
For those not in the know, The Creative Arts Emmy Ceremony highlights TV shows which managed to pull off notable technical achievements, and with the amount of investment and care put into The Mandalorian, many would argue it makes sense that the first season managed to land five wins on the night.
The Mandalorian was up for 15 awards in total, and impressively, the season walked away with a third of them. Previous Star Wars titles have experienced success in the past at this ceremony, with examples including Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance and The Clone Wars.
The Mandalorian won for Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (Half Hour), Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (Half Hour) and Animation, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series (Half Hour) and Animation, and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half Hour).
The first season has eight episodes in total and is notable as being the first live action series in the Star Wars franchise. It is set half a decade after the Return of the Jedi, and Din Djarin is the Mandalorian bounty hunter at the center of the storylines.
News recently broke that a second season of the show would be coming out in October 2020, and the next instalment will also have eight episodes. What’s more, pre-production on a potential third series began in April 2020.
