A lone ruthless hunter is the central and title character of The Mandalorian. This main character was sharply played by Pedro Pascal. Getting into the skin of the character, Pedro just added that charm into the series, which just made the whole a must-watch. In the year 2009, the initiator of Star Wars, George Lucas started developing the live-action star wars series, but it got back pushed due to the expensive budget needed to produce.

Although it seems quite easy after this toil, it was never easy to write and produce these high-budget shows. After a lot of twists and turns during the making of the show itself, it premiered with the launch of Disney+, in the year 2019. The first season containing eight episodes was a critically acclaimed one and was added with good word of mouth. It also got nominated for the Outstanding screenplay of the Drama Series and won seven primetime Emmy awards.

For the second season, several spin-offs were tried and finally, in February 2020 several characters were added to the original one for the spin-off. Looking into the working experience with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he extracted that, a potential guide for the spin-off exists in a smaller story but carrying a larger narrative. And this somehow made things look easy for him and then the second season also got made and got released on October 30, 2020. Hence, this is the way it took five years after the Rise of Skywalker for the Mandalorian to be made.

Why Is Mandalorian So Long After Rise Of Skywalker?

At the beginning of 2009, about 50+ scripts were penned for the development of the Live-action Star Wars TV series. Sadly, all of them were restricted because of the expensive budget. But then with the help of the Walt Disney company in the year 2012, the CEO of Disney announced that the Star Wars series is in the developing stage and will be streaming for the brand-new streaming service Disney+.

After the announcement also, the Mandalorian project went under too many development processes. Those included subsequently changing of voices, using new and advanced graphics, and VFX, and others. The character of Yoda which became “The child” later drew the character of a baby. In the plot, it may seem like the Baby Yoda and the Master Yoda are the same character, but in a nutshell, they are not. Although they belong to the same species, they are different in real.

In November 2018, it was almost confirmed by the showrunner that, Pedro Pascal would be playing the superb character of The Mandalorian. Some stunt doubles like Brenden Wayne also worked portraying the Mandalorian. The casting was done in a very rigid and manner and that all reflect while enjoying every character of the series.

During the making, it was also in a goof that, due to some creative differences, the story went under some specific changes, which slowed down the production. The editing of the series is not far from the buzz. Every VFX and graphics are just a treat to the eye, and making all this is not a layman’s job. The post-production was also a little responsible for the late release of this series.


The story, showcasing a lovely relationship between the child and his father. It is not a tradition of the Star Wars stories showing emotional plights and giving parenting examples in the past. It connects much better with the people when the primary character the Mandalorian plays a parental role.

It also gives us that softer side of the character which makes us believe that the character is a real one. While raising a child you become more self-absorbed and less selfish, which reacts positively. Hence, the five years it took to come out with this bang is really what we feel while watching the series and feeling every bit of it.
