The Mandalorian Animation Description

The Mandalorian Animation is a live-action Star Wars television series by Lucasfilm. It premiered on Disney+ on November 12, 2019. It is the first Star Wars television series to be in live-action.

Summary

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian Animation is set after the fall of the Galactic Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

The series begins proper with the introduction of The Mandalorian Animation, an enigmatic bounty hunter who is considered one of the best. After accepting a mysterious job from an unnamed client, the Mandalorian is hit with a moral dilemma when he learns that his bounty is a small defenseless infant. Now on the run, The Mandalorian Animation must do everything he can to protect the child even when he discovers that itself hides a secret.

Synopsis

Set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983) and the fall of the Empire, The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin, a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. In the second season, Djarin and “The Child” continue on their quest from the end of the first season, as they are pursued by Moff Gideon.
