Re: Star Wars: Movies and Shows on Disney+ and More
Mandalorian is a really nice show because it's fun and breezy. I think it's essentially everything that I wanted from the sequel trilogy but didn't get. Even as the Mandalorian's story gets more complicated and more tangled in the bigger Star Wars universe, it doesn't have the same level of burden that you get with the movies. It all feels like A New Hope, and I think that's very fun.
Minor spoilers but I assume everyone knows about the Mandalorian season 2 finale by now:
There are people who are upset about the Luke appearance. I don't get it. It made me so happy. It's funny - I've consumed a lot of Star Wars content and I guess I like it more than I thought, but I've never considered myself a big fan. But I absolutely love Luke Skywalker. One night before The Last Jedi, I couldn't sleep because I was worried Luke would be evil. And to see him finally get a huge fun heroic moment of dominance was so satisfying.
