Welcome back to the Mando madness! Not only do we have a new spread for Season 2 of The Mandalorian (complete with quotes and photos), our heroes over on Jabba the Pod are jumping into Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels and the Mando-riffic “Heroes of Mandalore” Parts 1 and 2.
This epic two-part episode is the last official bit of official Mando lore that we got before The Mandalorian began, and getting up close and personal with it will definitely enhance the live-action Mando experience. Not only is beskar brought back to canon (and made very important), this two-parter marks the last time that we see the Darksaber before Moff Gideon sparks it up at the end of Mando Season 1.
Somehow, the Moff with a mustache got the fabled saber out of the hands of Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) after she accepted ownership of it from Sabine Wren (Tiya Sircar). Bo-Katan is rumored to appear in the live-action series, so perhaps this untold story will be revealed.
Aside from that? They’re just two great episodes full of action, redemption, and Tobias Menzies. What more do you need? Seriously, besides air, food, water, shelter, world peace, and a lot of money, what more do you need?
Join Brian, Caitlin, and Matt for the beginning of the end of the grand Rebels rewatch, as well as some huge Mando hot takes and more news from the galaxy far, far away. Listen right here, or wherever you get your podcasts.
