    Star Wars has a history of allegory and “life metaphors”. In SOLO the journey of Han is an allegory for a journey across the US from the East Coast (Corellia = NYC) through the Rockies to the west coast. Also the use of the movie’s “color palette” which starts off gray/black for Han’s life on Corellia and then brighter as the movie goes on , a metaphor for him breaking out of his drab existence ..... all of this is covered in depth in the “Art of SOLO” book

    We need an equivalent look at the Mandalorian.....

    LOLOL.....that is "Master Pamuk-Gon"......we rescued him from Istanbul Turkey in August if you can believe it. He was living on the street there and also in a mine. Flew him to the US and picked him up in Dallas TX. Through a rescue called "Rescuers Without Borders"....great organization.

    He is the most "chill" dog ever....we have 3 boys ages 13-16-17 and they put glasses on him, blankets, etc....he loves it

    No so fun fact: when Boba Fett gets grabbed round the neck in one of the least effective attacks seen in Star Wars (that somehow works), his helmet changes back to his pre-paint job one in a few shots. I wish it had never been pointed out to me because now I can never unsee it.

    I thought the same thing! The most effective weapon against the dark troopers!

    Because he's a gunslinger, not a swordsman. He'll stick with what he knows.

    He just got his ass kicked by one of those things and then saw a light saber cut through them like a knife thru butter....should’ve been ready to use the most effective weapon at hand....

    You and @Jpcab are misremembering the sequence of events. The Dark Troopers stop punching the door because Luke Skywalker arrives. There's no need for him to ignite the Darksaber because Luke dispatches all of them.

    he should have turned on the dark saber before Luke arrival since the dark troopers were attacking the door.

    The same reason he fights well with his vibroknife. Mandalorians are trained in a variety of weapons.

    Bib Fortuna realized the tragic truth. He lost the Star Wars.

    I was so shocked to see the finale of the episode..didn't expect it. The second season was worth watching the ending.

    We all know that if Luke was portrayed like he was with this awesome scene in the mandalorian, in the sequels.. Rey story would become secondary... Luke Skywalker is iconic.
    And I d be OK with that
