Has The Mandalorian proved to be popular in the UK?
Disney+ debuted The Mandalorian in the UK in March 2020. And it’s the service’s current most-popular show – posts on Twitter generated an impressive 6,663 reshares and replies, according to joint research from social listening tool BrandsEye and Finder in December 2020. You can read the report here.
Online, the show’s popularity was driven by Star Wars fans, who found it reminiscent of the original George Lucas trilogy. However, the standout topic of conversation was Baby Yoda.
Twitter users celebrated the character by sharing memes of him swaddled in oversized robes, eating a frog and holding a cup.
Mandalorian season 1 recap
The Mandalorian takes place five years after the fall of the Empire and kicks off with the titular character, a bounty hunter, accepting a mysterious gig that involves him locating a vague target and bringing said target alive to The Client.
By the end of the pilot, he discovers that the bounty is none other than Baby Yoda, a big-eared infant creature known as The Child who is 50 years old and can already use The Force, though it seems to drain it of energy.
Mando brings The Child to The Client, but has second thoughts about leaving the innocent baby in the hands of dangerous Imperials. So he rescues Baby Yoda and the two are on the run, Mando understanding that The Child is better off under his protection.
Plenty of fast friendship, conflict, hostage situations and cool fight scenes follow. In the season finale, we see Mando’s face for the first time and learn that his real name is Din Djarin. He and his allies go to the lair of the Mandalorian clan where they catch up with the Armorer, the leader of a tribe of Mandalorian warriors.
Upon seeing Baby Yoda, the Armorer tells Mando that a group of extinct warriors had similar abilities as The Child – the Jedi – and that he has to reunite the creature with its own kind.
Too bad that Galactic Empire officer Moff Gideon, the Big Bad of season 1, has other plans. The finale ends with him wielding a Darksaber, an ancient weapon forged by a Mandalorian Jedi. The good guys may have won for now, but they’ll have to face many bumps ahead as they look for Baby Yoda’s home planet.
