What to Watch After The Mandalorian

Westerns and Akira Kurosawa’s samurai films are hardwired in the DNA of Star Wars. Those influences transmit across  mediums, from the Original Trilogy to the subsequent Prequel and Sequel trilogies, comic, novels, animation, and now to live-action television. 

The upcoming Disney+ Star Wars live-action spinoff show, Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian, is no exception to those influences. The show focuses on an armored bounty hunter, the titular Mandalorian played by Pedro Pascal, wandering galactic wastelands full of unscrupulous characters to make ends meet. While fans wait to see their masked Mandalorian in action on Disney+ tomorrow, here are some films that influenced the style of the TV show and other similar corners of the Star Wars universe.

The Tomorrow War

Despite making a triumphant return from dust in Avengers: Endgame, we haven’t seen much of Chris Pratt on the big screen lately. Sure, he voiced the lead character of Emmet in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, and he had a role in the sparsely seen western The Kid, but otherwise, Pratt has been laying pretty low as a leading man. But that changes next year with a new sci-fi thriller that also has the Parks and Recreation star executive producing for the first time.

About a year and a half ago, you might remember that Chris Pratt was announced to be starring in Ghost Draft, a sci-fi thriller that finds humanity fighting an alien invasion. But when it looks like humanity is on the ropes, they figure out a way to draft soldiers from the past to help fight the war. Now production is underway with an extensive ensemble cast, and the movie has a new name: The Tomorrow War. And with that new title also comes a first look photo. Read More »

How The Force Awakens Compares to The Rise of Skywalker

There’s a lot of pressure on J.J. Abrams to not only finish the final chapter of this new Star Wars trilogy but bring an end to the entire Skywalker saga that began all the way back in 1977. It’s a Herculean task for a fanbase that has proven to be rather divisive in recent years, especially since the franchise started to appeal to people other than grown men desperate to hang on to the nostalgia of their childhood. But rather than take The Rise of Skywalker back to the safe place where The Force Awakens began by not veering too far from the structure and style of the original trilogy, J.J. Abrams said he felt “freer” and more “daring” on the new film, and that’s thanks to The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Read More »

When Does The Mandalorian Take Place

The Disney+ live-action series The Mandalorian explores a galaxy that Star Wars fans have rarely seen onscreen before: the dark and seedy unscrupulous circles. Jon Favreau’s upcoming show has a lot of that to offer in contrast to the idealistic heroism of the main Star Wars films. 

The Rebellion has won the war and formed the New Republic, but the Empire isn’t put the rest. Far from the reaches of the New Republic, a Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) in his armor wanders the wastelands looking to make credits in a fraught galaxy.

Here’s a guide that may help the viewing experience of The Mandalorian.
