After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Galactic Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The series begins proper with the introduction of The Mandalorian, an enigmatic bounty hunter who is considered one of the best. After accepting a mysterious job from an unnamed client, the Mandalorian is hit with a moral dilemma when he learns that his bounty is a small defenseless infant. Now on the run, the Mandalorian must do everything he can to protect the child even when he discovers that itself hides a secret.
