Relive “The Mandalorian” Season 1 in Under Two Minutes

“Bounty hunting is a complicated profession,” the Client (Werner Herzog) says at the start of this season one recap of The Mandalorian. And indeed, it is. Jon Favreau’s juggernaut live-action Star Wars show explored that profession, via the work of the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal). The result was a massive success for Disney+ and a slew of Emmy Awards. And like a gift from the Armorer (Emily Swallow) herself, The Mandalorian season two premieres on October 30, which means that now is the time to relive season’s one joyous, Baby Yoda-fied excitement in under two minutes in this season one recap video.

We’ve got Mando (Pedro Pascal) accepting a new bounty mission, finding out that the bounty is a child (or, in The Mandalorian parlance, The Child, or, in the entire internet’s parlance, BABY YODA), changing his life forever. We’ve got Mando’s many battles in his quest to keep Baby Yoda alive. We’ve got Mando’s introduction to a new friend in Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and his reliance on old acquaintances like Greef Karga (Carl Weathers). We’ve got the late-season arrival of his newest enemy, Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito). We’ve got the Falcon Crest, the surprisingly heroic assassin droid IG-11 (voiced by Taika Waititi), and jet packs galore. In short, this recap distills everything you loved about season one and simultaneously fires you up for season two.
