    The Mandalorian, or "The Baby Yoda Show" as I am sure some viewers may call it, has depicted a lot of memorable moments for The Child. His introduction alone was a mindblowing reveal that was totally unexpected by viewers on day one of the series. Since then, we have seen him eat a frog, Frog Lady's eggs, and now some "space macarons."

    Daisy Ridley Speaks On Baby Yoda Egg Incident

    When it comes to the Star Wars franchise and its fandom, it seems like a miracle these days when fans generally agree on one thing. The Mandalorian has been perceived as such. It has long been a crowd pleaser for the fandom, and even casual viewers. But the longer that a Star Wars story lasts, the more likely it is to introduce something that may be off-putting to some fans.

    Disney Has Stolen Royalties From George Lucas’ Ghost Writer For ‘Star Wars’

    Alan Dean Foster is a name that would likely be familiar to avid readers of Star Wars novels. In fact, he was the ghost writer for the first novel ever made for the franchise, which was the original film's novelization, released in November 1976 (six months ahead of the film's release. He later wrote the first Expanded Universe novel, 1978's Splinter of the Mind's Eye, which was based on ideas from George Lucas for a low budget Harrison Ford-less sequel film that could have been made had the original film not been successful. 2002 saw the release of Foster's The Approaching Storm, which preceded the release of Attack of the Clones and explains the "border dispute on Ansion."

    George Lucas Was Warned That He Would Destroy 'Star Wars' With Young Anakin Prequel

    Out of all of the characters in cinematic history, few are as powerful and memorable as Darth Vader. Everything about him helped turn him into a cultural icon, including the American Film Institute ranking him as the second greatest villain in cinematic history behind only The Silence of the Lambs' Hannibal Lecter. From his look to his red lightsaber to the booming voice of James Earl Jones providing his dialogue, Darth Vader is a villain impossible to forget.

    Sasha Banks Is Fangirling Over Her Role In 'The Mandalorian' And We Are Too

    Sasha Banks Is Fangirling Over Her Role In 'The Mandalorian' And We Are Too

    Star Wars is, without a doubt, the biggest and most influential film series (and arguably media series in general) in the history of film. Since its debut in 1977, it has been a cultural milestone, with it still being number two on the overall highest grossing films list, behind only Gone With the Wind. Since then, Star Wars has just been a part of society in a way that few other pieces of media have. With that in mind, it would be a huge honor to be a part of the universe, especially in an amazing show like The Mandalorian, arguably already one of the best TV shows of all time, and certainly one of the best pieces of Star Wars media possibly since the original trilogy.

    'Star Wars' Just Brought This Deleted Scene From 'The Rise Of Skywalker' To Life

    Darth Vader has been a staple of Marvel's Star Wars comics. He is now on his third ongoing series, this one written by Greg Pak and set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. As has been the trend, there have been prequel connections and psychological study moments of the character that is Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader. Given that this story has been coming out after the release of The Rise of Skywalker, there is also the opportunity for this series to tie into aspects of the sequel trilogy.
