From someone who grow up with the star wars franchise in all its shape and forms, including playing with plastic light sabers too watching the clone wars. even though i had grown with a and loved star wars, I knew deep down that it was always a over rated franchise with only a few, top level achievements, the best of which being empire strikes back. the Mandalorian is able to deliver a delightfully fresh new look at the galaxy from far far away, to show the audience what its truly like to be a character in the star wars universe, with no idea about the star wars universe. Confused? Let me explain.
