After the critical failure of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the future of Star Wars had become quite uncertain. Despite being successful in the box-office, the recent Star Wars trilogy failed to live up to the hype and was panned by fans all across the globe. With no shore in sight, the franchise seemed to be drowning. But in the most unlikely scenario ever imagined, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni managed to set the course for the sinking franchise with The Mandalorian.
Following the story of Din Djarin/The Mandalorian, the show is a classic tribute to the Spaghetti Western movies with all the classic elements of the Star Wars universe. In an almost heretic approach, The Mandalorian discarded the overused Skywalker saga and the Jedi, while focusing on building a terrific story from scratch while still being able to satiate the fans with minor fan-service.
The first season of The Mandalorian received widespread acclaim, with numerous Primetime Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. Pedro Pascal’s no-nonsense badassery and Baby Yoda’s adorable antics have made The Mandalorian one of the highest-rated Star Wars property, with a staggering 93% Rotten Tomatoes rating, just behind Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
With the second season released a few days back, the internet has unsurprisingly exploded with the funniest fan reactions. In this terrible year, The Mandalorian is one of those few things that has restored a bit of normalcy and loads of fun.
Here are the 20 funniest fan reactions for the second season of The Mandalorian.
