Show Notes

If the Mandalorian is anything to go by, the future of Stars Wars seems a lot brighter on the small screen. Find out why in this season 1 review.

When Disney Plus launched in November one of the biggest incentives to subscribe was the addition of the first ever live action Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian. Take into account the fact that most die hard fans of all things Marvel, Star Wars and other Disney stuff likely own most of the other content and it was probably the only incentive.

It seems to have worked though. Disney boasted about signing up over 10 million users the day after it launched. To put it into perspective it took Netflix two years to achieve the same result.

It might be a stretch to put it down to one show, there’s a lot of other content on the platform but, as far as new content goes, the Mandalorian is the top draw. Unless you want to watch Jeff Goldblum eat ice cream and talk about sneakers.
