To each their own, I think baby Yoda is adorable and is very impressive looking compared to SE Jabba and Episode I puppet Yoda.
Does anyone know the name of the planet the Mando went to to find baby Yoda?

What's next a baby Rancor with a leash? A baby trash compactor monster? A baby Jabba the Hutt? A baby Greedo with Wuhr babysitting him while he bartends?

When the stuffed toy is finally released in toy stores, it will Force levitate off the shelves. Friends and I were watching the series together and originally they were only going to watch the first two as they are casual SW fans. In the end we watched all 4 eps currently released but the show was given a change of name to 'Baby Yiddle featuring the Mandalorian'. Every time it appeared on the screen, there was ooh and aahs with comments of I need one from them.

My first impression of the show is that is nice but not a show I'm feel I need watch a second time.

I haven't seen much of The Mandalorian. Ads, brief clips, some concept art circulating on the web. And who could escape the revoltingly cute Yodaling?

And I keep thinking one thing:

Lone Wolf and Cub

But I don't think I see any Japanese people.

Is this some of that "cultural appropriation" stuff I hear about?

Episode 4 had MANY similarities to TCW S2E17 Bounty Hunters. There’s even a ship that might be the same model as the Razorcrest.
I think Filoni is directing episode 5, I’m looking forward to that!

Episode 5 was directed by Filoni, and it was a nostalgia overload! JJ must’ve gotten Filoni’s ear.
I did find the Mando’s knowledge of Tusken’s interesting.

Just watched the season finale of the Mandalorian. And I am so pleased with how this show has turned out!
THIS IS THE WAY!
Giancarlo Esposito was a phenomenal success! His character exuded a cool calculating definitive threat, Moff Gideon will be remembered long after the memories of Snoke and Captain Phasma have faded from memory.
Ethan van Sciver made a great analogy between this show and the Sequel Trilogy, if the child represents all the good of Star Wars, Disney is the Client and JJ Abrams is Dr Pershing who is trying to clone the child. We the fans are the Mandalorian, protecting the child (Star Wars).
I loved this show, and if you’d didn’t that’s fine also. I’m not gonna yuck your yum if you preferred the ST. Everyone is welcome to like what they like.

It was a hit with my little scifi group and I'm the only one who is described as a big SW fan. Stories had a better SW feel than the ST. For something that can yet string a sentence together 'The Child' is the star and if it leaves hen ratings will drop.

It appears inevitable that Disney will finally name Yoda's species breaking GL wish of leaving it a mystery. Even if they never find the race, the Mandalorian is going to have to find out some info to assist with this journey.

Unless Mando finds a clue or a map or some sort of ancient text, and is heard saying "So that's where they come from" but the info isn't shown on screen. It will be like the dark man on Lost never having a name and the audience being intentionally kept in the dark about what it was.

Considering the instruction left at the end of the last ep, LFL has to balance keeping the mystery but feeding the story line. The first season was all out protecting the child and it appears the second is to reunite the child with its species. The average fan doesn't have the patience and doesn't remember that GL promised never to reveal Yoda's race.

The species is bigger than just a name reveal. Once known then it help with the care and upbringing of the child.

I have never seen any of Lost and have no plans to. This show isn't Lost and everyone I know felt cheated by the reveal it was all a dream. It made it very unpopular and Disney hates unpopular as it is bad for after sales.

Aside from Ashley Ekstien I think Rosario Dawson is a good choice for Ahsoka. And I don’t care about all the nonsense revolving around an alleged law suit over an alleged incident between her family and a house keeper.

I've seen the first episode of The Mandalorian now. Hmm... Observations to follow. Not that anyone asked for them. Teaser: I didn't hate it.

Disney hates unpopular...?

The same folks that perpetrated So Low: A Star Wars Box Office Bomb, The Farce Awakens, The Last Moof-Milker, and The Irrelevance of Skywalker?

They seem to have a pretty high tolerance for profoundly unpopular films. Disastrously unpopular films.

I'm very curious what you thought of it! :) The show isn't available here in Sweden yet and I really want to see it.

Glad to hear! :) No, Disney+ won't be available here in Sweden before fall. I haven't heard about a Blu-Ray release either so I guess they're holding out.

The Child has a name. Sam Hargrave who is a 2nd unit director on the show has confirmed he knows the name.

Speculation is around whether it will be revealed in Season 2. I wonder if it is a name given to him or his name at birth.

I would guess it will be revealed when they go to the planet of the Yoda people. I kind of doubt they will do that next season though.

I presume Mandalorian will give The Child a name this season and then we find out it's real name in the final season. They won't get to the planet until near the last episode ever so definitely not this season.

You're probably right. But I could see them getting to the planet earlier, and then Yoda's people telling him it was the will of the force for him and the child to keep travelling together or something. Idk, could just be wishful thinking on my part. I really wanna see the Yoda home planet.

Years ago George said that where Yoda was from would always remain a mystery. It appears that Disney is using the fans desire to make money out of it. Be careful what you wish for as it may lead to disappointment.

As mentioned in The Clone Wars, I finished a two week free trial of Disney+ and crammed in both TCW and The Mandalorian. This was a great live action show. I'd been waiting months to finally watch it and was not disappointed. I only hope they can keep this kind of level into the future.

The trailer for season 2 has been released on the OS. There isn't a lot to it.

Strangely the Mandalorian isn't looking for the Child race to reunited him with but instead he is searching for the Jedi. Does this mean that in a future season he will meet Luke Skywalker? Considering it is set 9ABY then Luke would need to be recast. Unless there is a time jump to just before The Force Awakens, then Mark could play and probably reject training the child.
