We’re only three weeks away from the debut of the first-ever live-action Star Wars TV series, as The Mandalorian is slated to premiere on 12 November 2019 exclusively on Disney Plus.

Amidst all the Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker hype (check out my breakdown of the final trailer here), several lucky critics have already seen around 30 minutes worth of footage from the first episode, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive so far.

From the 30 minutes of The Mandalorian footage, critics are already praising the TV series, saying that it looks and feels like the Star Wars movies. This probably means that the production values are top-notch and high enough to match even that of the iconic movies in the franchise. It seems like Disney has spared no expense with The Mandalorian.





One critic even pointed out that The Mandalorian is giving off vibes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and surprisingly, Predator. That might allude to the action scenes in The Mandalorian, and perhaps we’ll see them from the perspective of The Mandalorian himself, similar to how we experience the Predator hunting from its unique perspective throughout the Predator franchise.

Other critics show off their reactions by losing their minds and simply fanboying/fangirling right off the bat, which bodes well for the The Mandalorian‘s eventual response by the fans of the franchise (which is obviously the most important demographic that the show is catering to).





There you have it, folks. Most of the critics’ first reactions seem to indicate that The Mandalorian, while still looking and feeling like an authentic Star Wars experience, will offer a refreshing and unique experience separate from that of the Skywalker Saga we’ve been seeing for the past four decades.

The first episode of The Mandalorian is set to premiere on 12 November 2019, with a second episode several days later on 15 November 2019, before resuming its weekly schedule with its third episode on 22 November 2019.

In the meantime, rewatch the trailer below.
