The second episode of Star Wars: The Mandalorian is now available on Disney+. The series continues to develop the story of Din Djarin and Grogu, two characters who embrace their destiny and head to the very planet Mandalore. They do it in the company of a new allywhich has turned out to be an individual who was rejected by Luke Skywalker in the classic trilogy.
Next we will reveal some guts of this episode.
An unexpected hero, who is R5-D4?
In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Luke Skywalker goes with his uncle Owen Lars to negotiate the purchase of an astromech droid. It is sold by the Jawas, some creatures that are dedicated to stealing and breaking down parts and scrap. They close the deal and opt for R5-D4, but before he joins his new masters, smoke begins to come out and suffers a massive breakdown. Predictably, Luke and Owen feel they’ve been ripped off and refuse to take the unit with them. It is then that they choose R2-D2 and C3P0 as their replacement.
After Return of the Jedi, R5-D4 is no longer with the Jawas. Peli Motto, the junkyard joker from Tatooinehas taken over their services (the droid already came out in The Book of Boba Fett). And it just so happens that the Mandalorian is looking for a droid now that he’s reconciled with them. He wants that partner to be IG-11, who self-destructed at the end of the first season. However, the part they need is not available and Peli manages to get Din Djarin to buy it for him.
Is Mandalore poisoned? Can you breathe on its surface? R5-D4 trembles at the prospect of exploring the planet.but he obeys his new master and ends up fulfilling his mission… or at least he tries to, because the air is perfectly breathable, but the creatures that have survived are far from peaceful, quite the opposite.
Another of the surprises of the episode of The Mandalorian has been the appearance of mythosaura creature closely linked to the Mandalorian culture.
