The Mandalorian Season 2: The Latest Huge Cameo Has a Hidden Meaning - Canon Fodder

2 240
The Mandalorian Season 2 is back with another episode the live-action Star Wars series has not held back with including fan-favorite Star Wars characters in The Mandalorian Season 2. This time, Mando and The Child (a.k.a. Baby Yoda) make their way to Trask where Din Djarin hopes to find more Mandalorians so they can help him complete his quest of delivering The Child (a.k.a Baby Yoda) to the Jedi. Join host Max Scoville for this episode of IGN's Canon Fodder, as he connects the events of this week's episode of The Mandalorian with the larger Star Wars canon to see what it tells about the Star Wars show's future. For Mandalore!

Ever since the Lucasfilm and Star Wars dropped The Mandalorian Season 2 trailer, fans have been watching Mandalorian Season 2, keeping an eye out for characters like Boba Fett, Bo Katan Kryze, Ahsoka Tano, Baby Yoda, The Mandalorian, Rosario Dawson, Baby Yoda and The Mandalorian. The possibility of including characters from The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels has had fans excited from the Star Wars series' beginning. The show is becoming a favorite for fans of Star Wars. Theory videos have been made about The Mandalorian Season 2 and hopefully this season will lead The Mandalorian and The Child (a.k.a. Baby Yoda) back to the Jedi in The Mandalorian Season 2.
This is the way.

People need to chill complaining about side missions. By now it’s pretty obvious it’s an episodic adventure series. So each episode is going to have its own small story that ties in to the overarching story.

Just being from the planet Mandalore, or wearing the armor does not make a warrior a Mandalorian. According to The Way Din is right in his POV. Bo Katan and her group are heretics skipping whatever parts of The Way they choose not to practice. The Children of the Way however might be no better by adding some additional rules. In the EU their helmets were supposed to be the face Mandalorians showed to outsiders(aruetii). Among their friends and family the helmets could be taken off.
The planet Mandalore is culturally significant the same way Karakorum might be to the Mongols. The Mandalorians themselves are nomadic.

First I think there's no Boba Fett and they used episode one as a herring to introduce that Rex is already been sent to watch the mando. I think the razor crest will be dropped off on Tatooine for repair and Rex will offer Mando a ride to Corvus pretending to be some ex clone trader. I think the entire episode will be situations where Rex could either kill him or take the armor but doesn't for the payoff of who he really is in the end.

I see a lot of people complaining about "filler" episodes but I was under the impression the the Mandalorian is a series where the plot and storyline is a vehicle for adventure, action and world building and not the other way around. It's an episodic adventure series is it not? If it were a mini series I would understand but it isn't, its contributing greatly to world building and back story.
For example: episode 9 contributed mildly to story, other than the Return of Boba Fett and his armor, but it expanded the world of the Tusken Raiders and humanized them. Before, they were represented as brutal savages with limited civility and organization. Now, it's canon that they are intelligent, organized and dedicated survivalist. Rough around the edges, sure but savages they are no longer.
This is what I love about this show. The "detours" that more deeply canonizes amazing corners of the Star Wars universe outside of the Jedi and the Sith.

I am the one who says baby Yoda is actual Yoda who was perhaps pulled through the world between by Palpatine before he went for his free fall that disabled him for a few years? Maybe Palpatine was trying to stop the jedi before they could be trained by Yoda. Or Yoda had a child, the other besides Luke!☺

Honestly? I dont give a f about the Red lady's storyline and any of the epic stuff that it teases.
The Mandalorian is about THE mandalorian and baby Yoda's small adventures along the main quest. Like Samurai Jack.
Taking it all and mix it into a major galaxy wide conflict the stupidest thing they can do.
I hope they will keep it small.

I would really enjoy this show more if the episodes actually had a straight forward plot that has big impacts and implications. The plots of the single episodes simply don’t overlap and aren’t really connected. It feels like side quests is a video game. I want to follow the main story though 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

な6IXLXRD - 10 dager siden
@Oh Aww Geez That's honestly not much of a difference, tbh. Being an adaptation is all the MORE reason actors should look exactly like the characters they're directly adapting...hence "adaptation". Canon gives shows liberty when it comes to that. Mandalorian could've easily slapped any woman in a short red wig (black or white or Wookie), called her Bo Katan, and it would've been canon because they decide what is and isn't cannon whenever they want. But if this was an adaptation, those same liberties don't exist; Bo Katan shouldn't look any different from how she looks in the media they were adapting (which is why if they ever did a Clone Wars adaptation, the actress here would be PERFECT for the role). To provide a better example, if JK Rowling was allowed to make a Harry Potter show and every episode was canon, then Herimone's race, Ron's gender, and Harry's sexuality would change every other season because it's all canon.

He is, easily. The video says Ahsoka is the most *experienced* Force user in the Galaxy, which is true given that she's like 25 years older than Luke and has been a Jedi since infancy. Luke is the most *poweful* becuase he is Chosen One Jr.

I think there’s one correction here, we know he is a member of the Children of the Watch, but we have no clue if Din is a member of Death Watch. All we know is he was saved by Death Watch. They are two different things and we are unsure if they are the same at this time.

Was Dagoba actually Yoda's home world or just where he landed his pod and settled in? If the empire wiped away life on Mandalore (instead of giving it the Alderaan treatment) it's kind of logical to expect the they would have done the same to Yoda's home world, especially if they're a force sensitive race and not part of a normalized distribution of force sensitive sentients throughout the galaxy.
Basically what we see happening is that peaceful civilizations like on Alderaan are wiped out completely while the homes of natural enemies are poisoned or otherwise incompletely destroyed by single reactor blasts from the death star.
