Star Wars: The Mandalorian Chapter 1 (2019) – A Quick Capsule TV Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Star Wars: The Mandalorian is the first ever live action Star Wars TV series and, based on episode one, this is looking like a most worthy entry to the legendary film franchise.  Every bit a space western, this made for Disney+ picks up after the events of Return Of The Jedi and the fall of the Galactic Empire and focused on the titular Mandalorian, played by Narco’s Pedro Pascal in true Judge Dredd style… never taking his helmet off.  Episode 1 is a hoot – cool new space ships, classic franchise nods, an epic shoot out, Carl freakin’ Weathers and an ending that may play into the upcoming Rise of Skywalker.  A long way to go for sure but based on Episode 1 Star Wars: The Mandalorian could be pretty special.

Best Bit: The shoot out

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream (via Disney+)
