Cinematic Doctrine Christian Movie Podcast Reviews Disney Star Wars The Mandalorian

The Mandalorian (S1) – How Slow-Paced Character Building Isn’t “Filler”, You’re Just Droning

It’s finally here! The long-awaited first-ever live-action Star Wars series has landed. And, to everyone’s surprise, both critics and general audiences love it! With a healthy percentage on Rotten Tomatoes, The Mandalorian is turning out to be a welcome success for Disney.

As such, it’s garnered plenty of social media engagement, dominating everything across the board with its precious cargo, Baby Yoda. Hilarious when considering the democratic debates were getting less online engagement thanks to an infant space alien.

But, social media engagement is one thing. What matters is if The Mandalorian is any good. So, is it? Well, let’s find out!

Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine!

The Mandalorian is Rated TV-PG. It has no detailed certificate, so here’s a Melvin certificate: Sci-fi action through-out, and brief mild language.

It features Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, and Giancarlo Esposito.

Created by Jon Favreau.
