An exciting gift for fans of the franchise

With Mando determined to get hold of the necessary piece to recover IG-11 for his complicated mission on Mandalore, his reunion with Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris), who we are delighted to see again by the way, puts him on the right track. the earth. However, the fact that the piece she is looking for has stopped being manufactured is what she allows bring back an old acquaintance from the franchise that we already located in the trailer and whose re-entry into the universe is official.

He promises to offer us more moments, but for now, the droid R5-D4 He is already together with our beloved protagonist. As the most loyal Star Wars fans might quickly remember, we met R5D4 46 years ago, in Star Wars: A New Hope (1977), a droid that belonged to Luke Skywalker and that in the first film of the saga was one of the many droids that the Jawas sold. However, when Uncle Owen was determined to buy it, the droid broke down at the last moment, eventually leading to the purchase of the mythical R2-D2 in his place. A missed opportunity to become one of the heroes of the adventure, but one that, as Star Wars fans who expanded their knowledge beyond the canon through the comics well know, had a greater importance.

But the presence of R5-D4 is a small percentage of the dose of emotions of the episode, which mainly stands out for giving viewers a historic visit to that mythical Mandalore that until now we had only been able to see in the animated series Star Wars. A dark and dangerous visit that manages to reunite Mando and Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) and brings with it some really exciting moments, especially in its final stretch. From the Madalorian princess wielding the Dark Saber to the entry into action of Grogu and his use of the Force, going through an interesting history lesson that makes hope grow about the recovery of that place that was destroyed in the Purge carried out by the Empire.

Whether its famous living waters are magical remains to be seen, but what is certain is that a powerful creature that was thought to be extinct lives under them. ORna surprise also for Bo-Katan and that leaves us counting the days for episode 3 next Wednesday March 15.
