Details on the plot of The Mandalorian have been sparse to say the least, but today we finally got some additional information. Disney+ unveiled the first three episodes’ descriptions. Sure, they’re vague and predictable if you’ve watched any of the trailers and TV spots, but given this production’s dedication to avoiding spoilers, that’s to be expected.
Here are the three episodes’ descriptions:
- Chapter 1: A Mandalorian bounty hunter tracks a target for a well-paying client.
- Chapter 2: Target in-hand, The Mandalorian must now contend with scavengers.
- Chapter 3: The battered Mandalorian returns to his client for reward.
Breaking It Down
I wasn’t kidding when I said they were vague. There is essentially zero new information here, but let’s see if we can piece together what’s going on based on the trailers.
We expected that The Mandalorian would be about a bounty hunter from the first trailer‘s now-famous line, “Bounty hunting is a complicated profession.” The “well-paying client” is likely Werner Herzog’s unnamed character, who uttered that line. In the second trailer, Herzog’s character indicates that “they” are waiting for him outside, which seems to be former (current?) Imperials. Was it all a set-up?
The scavengers referred to in Chapter 2’s description could be the Trandoshans that attack The Mandalorian in the second trailer. The attack comes from above, which is similar to how the Sandpeople attack in the films.
Again, not much to go on. It’s all speculation at this point, but for a fan-base starving for more information, this will have to do until Tuesday.
