New details surrounding the plot of the upcoming Star Wars live-action TV show The Mandalorian have potentially been revealed. Created by Iron Man director Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian was announced back in October and will take place between Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, airing for ten episodes on Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney Plus sometime in 2020.
In the past few months, fans have gotten a lot of details surrounding the first live-action Star Wars TV show, including a first look at the Mandalorian warrior, which bears a striking resemblance to the Mandalorian design in the canceled 1313 video game. Dave Filoni will direct the pilot of the series, while directors like Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow have also been announced to direct episodes of the show. As for the cast, Pedro Pascal is expected to lead the series, while actors like Gina Carino and Nick Nolte have also joined the project recently. Now, some story details may have also been revealed for the upcoming series regarding a possible McGuffin.

New details surrounding The Mandalorian have potentially leaked thanks to Making Star Wars. The Mandalorian will reportedly revolve around the Mandalorian warrior finding a child on one of his missions and refusing to kill the child. The Mandalorian will then detail the journey of the Mandalorian warrior and this child, as he grows up to be the heir of Mandalore. Making Star Wars also revealed that by episode 3, the armor for the Mandalorian will completely change.
This revelation about The Mandalorian is intriguing for a few reasons. If these plot details turn out to be true, then the previously leaked set video for The Mandalorian could be showing the Mandalorian warrior carrying a baby on his back rather than a weapon or jetpack. Also, if The Mandalorian will feature a storyline about a baby, then this child would be around the same age as characters like Poe Dameron, Rey, and Finn in the current Star Wars trilogy.
Assuming this information is true, it may not only hint at what fans could see in The Mandalorian, but in future Star Wars projects as well. And, even though it is all still speculation at this point, the baby in the show could potentially turn out to be the heir to Mandalore, while also playing a more significant role in future Star Wars projects, such as Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy or even the upcoming film series from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Needless to say, The Mandalorian could be more important to the world of Star Wars than previously thought.
