The second season of wildly popular Disney Plus series The Mandalorian has recently come out – but for those who didn’t watch the show week by week, or even at all yet, there will likely be plenty of questions on their mind.
Let’s take it back to basics by describing what a Mandalorian is and what has happened so far in The Mandalorian, plus the general premise of the series.
Mandalorians are people who come from the planet Mandalore in the Star Wars world. They are bounty hunters who are human and have a strong sense of warrior tradition.
They have a distinctive armor outfit which is recognised with the use of jet packs and helmets. Boba Fett is the most well known Mandalorian, and the Mandalorian in the TV series is called Din Djarin.
As for the story so far, season one told the tale of a lone bounty hunter – or Mandalorian – who is located in the outer reaches of the galaxy. He takes on an assignment to find ‘The Child’, also known as Baby Yoda to fans.
He then goes on the run in order to protect The Child, and season two focuses on how he returns the creature to its people. The series is set five years after the Return of the Jedi and the fall of the Empire.
To stream both seasons of The Mandalorian, Disney Plus can be purchased as a $6.99 a month subscription or a year-long membership for $69.99.
