Personally? I’m tired of trying to cram the ever-expansive mythology of Star Wars into the confines of westerns, war films and traditional American myth-making. No chagrin towards the new films, which I have enjoyed or flat-out adored, but I yearn for the emphasis on “fantasy” in space that hasn’t been fully fledged since the prequel trilogy. However, if it needs to continue down that Western path… The Mandalorian looks like it’s got its heart and head in the right place.
Directed by Jon Favreau, Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow and Dave Filoni (in his live-action directorial debut), The Mandalorian debuts November 12, 2019 on Disney+
