If you’re wondering when the Mandalorian takes place, you’re in luck. In an upcoming Star Wars movie, Han Solo (and more) will be among the first members of a group that’s devoted to protecting the galaxy. The film will explore the history of the First Order, and if the rumors are right, we may get to see how the First Order’s origins began.
Han Solo is around 41 years old
There’s a lot that isn’t known about the galaxy far, far away. For example, is Han Solo still alive? Or is he somewhere else in the galaxy?
While the first trilogy of Star Wars was centered on the adventures of Luke and Han, the new trilogy is all about Leia and Ben. The two of them are on Chandrila, a world that isn’t close to the Outer Rim.
In this new trilogy, Lando Calrissian is probably on Cloud City. The ship is probably there as well. It’s possible that Han is still on Jabba’s planet.
Han’s best friend, Chewbacca, is retired by this point, though he’s not exactly dead. A new species called Trandoshans are introduced in Empire Strikes Back.
Meanwhile, a new faction of Imperials known as the First Order begins to rise in the Unknown Regions. They begin an abduction program called Project Resurrection. This results in the death of Darth Vader. And while we don’t know whether or not Han is alive, we do know that he defected from the Empire.
Another interesting fact about this series is the fact that it takes place five years after the end of the original trilogy. When this happens, the Jedi Order is at its peak. Using some estimates and news sources, I put together this timeline.
It’s also important to note that the Star Wars movies have some significant spoilers. If you’re going to watch The Mandalorian, you’ll want to keep these things in mind.
The most significant is the mention of a hologram of Sheev, which is a very old droid from the pre-trilogy era. Other noteworthy references include the Corellian Spike, which is a variation of the Corellian Spike.
Ben Solo is not Kylo Ren yet
When the The Mandalorian first begins, Kylo Ren is still a boy. Despite what you may have heard, it does not mean that the show will not explore his early years.
In fact, we will have to wait a long time before we see the change happen to Kylo Ren. He’ll be a toddler when the series begins, and his transformation will take a lot of time. So let’s look at the timeline of Kylo Ren’s early days.
The Mandalorian takes place about five years after Return of the Jedi. This means that the characters are about 41 or 42 years old, which would make Finn around two years old and Kylo Ren about four years old.
While Kylo Ren is not born when Jedi is taking place, his uncle Luke Skywalker is alive. There are many similarities between their lives. But it is not clear if they are related.
Several years later, Kylo Ren and Rey are both haunted by the memory of their father’s death. As a result, they discover a strong bond with the Force. They also join forces in battle against Emperor Palpatine.
Kylo Ren was a leader of the Knights of Ren. His mentor was Supreme Leader Snoke. A couple of years later, Kylo Ren ascended to the position of the First Order’s Supreme Leader.
Ben Solo is also not a Sith yet. He is a Jedi. However, he was a pseudo-Sith. Although he did not commit room-to-room killings like Anakin did in Revenge of the Sith, his actions are nonetheless dark.
It is unclear if Kylo Ren is going to appear in The Mandalorian. If so, it is unlikely that actor Adam Driver will play the character.
Palpatine is a Sith Emperor and ballet connoisseur
While there are many Star Wars TV shows and movies to choose from, I think it’s safe to say that none of them are for a lack of quality. I’ve been a loyal fan of the franchise since it was first broadcast on television back in the good ol’ days, and the one that has remained afloat since has become my favorite. That said, I’m not one to pass up a chance to watch a good ol’ fashioned escapist movie. You know, one that makes you go home happy and feel pampered for the rest of the night. And the best way to do that is to sit in front of the telltale TV set with a beer in hand. Not to mention a couple of friends. If you want to aspire to be a seasoned Star Wars buff, you gotta do what you gotta do. There are only so many hours in a day, and it’s just too easy to let the rat race get the best of you. A nice evening, a couple of scotch, and a well worn copy of “Atlanta” is a great way to kick back and relax after a long week of work.
The Mandalorian will explore the roots of the First Order
The upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series “The Mandalorian” will explore the origins of the First Order. Set in the 30-year gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the series will reveal how the first iteration of the baddies grew out of the fall of the Galactic Empire.
In the current era of the franchise, the First Order is the primary antagonist. While fans have heard little about them, the new trilogy hints at the potential for them to become a major force in the story. However, many details remain unknown.
It was announced last week that the next chapter in The Mandalorian’s tale will debut on Disney+ in 2021. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealed the news in a recent interview. During the conversation, Filoni and Favreau discussed how the upcoming series will include the First Order.
Filoni has previously been involved with the Star Wars Resistance and animated series. According to the producer, this project will break new ground. He claims that it will examine the “cinematic tropes of George Lucas’s films” and explain the rise of the First Order.
Favreau is a producer of the show and will also write it. He and Filoni have been exploring the possible connection between the original Star Wars trilogy and the sequels.
During the recent Entertainment Weekly cover reveal, they mentioned that one of the characters, a toddler named Grogu, would share a powerful Force ability with Yoda. Meanwhile, Giancarlo Esposito is set to play Moff Gideon.
The Mandalorian will be directed by Dave Filoni, who has extensive experience in the Star Wars world. He has worked on the animated series Star Wars Rebels and the Star Wars Resistance.
Sabine Wren is a perfect fit for the Mandalorian
The live action casting of Sabine Wren in The Mandalorian is a huge deal for Star Wars fans. Sabine Wren is a fan favourite character from the Star Wars Rebels animated series and has had a major role in two spin-offs. This will be her first live-action role.
Natasha Liu Bordizzo is set to play Sabine Wren in the upcoming Disney+ series Ahsoka. Dave Filoni is excited about her work ethic and said she’s “a great fit” for the role.
Sabine is known for her skills in explosives and painting. She was also a dedicated member of the Rebels team. During the Clone Wars, Sabine served under the command of Hera Syndulla. Eventually, Sabine left the team for personal reasons.
Natasha Liu Bordizzo has revealed a bit more about Sabine in a new article for The Hollywood Reporter. Apparently, she auditioned for the role. Three different Star Wars executives approved the casting.
While the casting hasn’t been confirmed yet, it seems likely that Sabine will be joining Ahsoka Tano on her rescue mission. If this is the case, it could tie up a plot thread in the future.
Sabine will be a vital part of Ahsoka’s story and if the casting of Sabine goes as planned, she’ll be the first live-action Mandalorian. And if Boba Fett is involved, he may also make an appearance.
Considering Sabine Wren’s connection to Bo-Katan, it would be a fitting moment to see her in the Mandalorian. Besides, her presence could give fans a glimpse into her history.
Fans are anxiously awaiting her introduction. But before she arrives, Sabine will show up in another story.
It’s believed that the next season of The Mandalorian will feature Sabine in addition to other characters from the Star Wars Rebels series. In fact, The Mandalorian Season 2 teased a possible sequel to Rebels.
