As always, the latest episode of "The Mandalorian" is full of call-backs, Easter eggs, and interesting teases of the bigger picture.
The Mandalorian S3 Is Repeating The Mistakes Of The Worst Star Wars Show
"The Mandalorian" has usually been a reliable vehicle for bringing some of the coolest parts of the franchise's assorted stories to glorious live action, but Season 3 seems to draw inspiration from a somewhat less fortunate source – the aforementioned "The Book of Boba Fett," aka the critics' least-favorite Disney+ "Star Wars" show by a significant margin.
Over the past four decades (and counting), "Star Wars" has spawned close to a dozen movies, hundreds of tie-in novels, countless video games, stacks of comic books, action figures, radio dramas, tabletop RPGs, collectible card games, and pretty much every other type of media you can imagine — save one.
