Star Wars: The Mandalorian “Chapter 1”
Star Wars: The Mandalorian “Chapter 1” Synopsis
Five years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire,[a] a Mandalorian bounty hunter accepts an under-the-table job from an enigmatic client with Imperial connections, who demands he travel to the desert planet Arvala-7 and find a fifty-year-old target. While the client is indifferent to the target’s well-being, his colleague Dr. Pershing insists the target be brought back alive.
The Mandalorian receives a bar of Beskar steel as a down payment, which the bounty hunter brings to an armorer to craft into a piece of armor. After travelling to Arvala-7, The Mandalorian is saved from two Blurgg by a vapor farmer named Kuiil. Kuiil shows The Mandalorian the target’s location, an encampment where the criminals inhabiting the planet reside.
Kuiil also warns that previous bounty hunters who attempted to travel there died. Upon reaching the location, the Mandalorian reluctantly teams up with bounty hunter droid IG-11 to clear the camp and find the bounty, which is an infant belonging to the same species as Yoda. When IG-11 attempts to terminate the infant, the Mandalorian shoots and destroys the droid before taking the infant.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian “Chapter 2: The Child”
Star Wars: The Mandalorian “Chapter 2: The Child” Synopsis
The bounty hunter fights off an attack by ambushing mercenaries, only to find the Mandalorian’s ship has been stripped by Jawas. The Mandalorian violently confronts the scrap merchants, but is stunned in the process and dropped from their sandcrawler. The following day, Kuiil assists the Mandalorian in retrieving his ship’s components but in return, the Jawas request he hunt “The Egg”.
The Mandalorian locates “The Egg” within the den of a large horned beast who expels its would-be slayer with a violent charge. Repeating its attack, the beast damages the Mandalorian, but the child uses the Force reflexively against the Beast, allowing the Mandalorian to kill it. Having traded “The Egg” for the components, the Mandalorian and Kuiil repair the stripped conveyance, allowing The Mandalorian and the child to leave the planet.
