Next week the first live-action Star Wars television show, The Mandalorian, will be released on the new Disney streaming service Disney+.
Star Wars fans are naturally very excited.
The official Star Wars site (starwars.com) is sure to have coverage about each episode and will hopefully provide a lot of behind the scenes information and interviews. Vanity Fair writers Anthony Breznican and Joanna Robinson will be talking about The Mandalorian on the podcast Still Watching (which covers a variety of shows).
Many other media websites will also surely provide extensive coverage surrounding The Mandalorian’s first season. This guide, however, is centered around fan-produced content (most of which isn’t making its creators any money). A flood of Star Wars podcasts, YouTube channels, and websites have already announced after shows, recaps, and planned deep dives of each episode of The Mandalorian. Here’s a list of them in no particular order.
Note: I’ll do my best to embed the first episode of all of these when they hit the internet!
Here’s a link to Still Watching’s look at Chapter 1 of The Mandalorian.
“The Mandalorian Watch recap episodes will be available the day after each episode. We will also be doing a voicemail hotline in between each episode (so, two episodes a week). Voicemail Hotline episodes will be a chance for listeners to share their thoughts and theories! The number is (205) 259-6675. We are available on all major podcasting platforms, and mainly Apple Podcasts, SoundCloud, and Spotify”
@YodaBauer will be doing weekly reviews of episodes of The Mandalorian for Star Wars Refuge.
Episodic reviews can be found on the site within a week of each episode’s release. Their review of Chapter 1 is here.
