If The Mandalorian continues to impress at this level, it may eventually become my favorite Star Wars of all, even more so than the movies.

Definitely up there with Star Wars and Empire for me. It’s simple enough storytelling, and that’s part of why it’s so compelling. The parent and child dynamic is so quintessential to Star Wars, except now it feels more relevant to real life.

The Clone Wars finale, the Star Wars Rebels finale, and Rogue One are my other favourite pieces of Disney era content and as a matter of fact they’re ALL ‘up there’. If you ask me, it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan.

I think they just like have tiny connections like these, for people like me who enjoy that kind of stuff. It’s not important to the story and if someone didn’t notice it, they wouldn’t be missing anything really, but it’s fun for the people who do notice.

*That first helmet if from the previous episode.

It’s definitely a reference to that, but they look quite different, so unless they’ve retconned/updated the design I think they’re meant to be separate species. The new one definitely looks more Star Wars-y.

I just chalked it up to being improved creature effects, but they could be different species I suppose. Maybe he molted a few times? lol

Great name too, Doctor Mandible. lol

Am I the only person that gets a bit of a Al Williamson-vibe from the design of the “Frog-Lady”? The creature design reminds me of the Chubbits from the SW Newspaper comic.

I also think its a nice little detail that both the “Frog-Lady” and “Dr. Mandible” (as Peli called him) both appeared in the season 1 Tatooine episode, implying that there’s not much happening on Tatooine anymore. Moroff from Rogue One, or at least someone from the same species, also popped up in the new cantina scene.

There’s a mantis looking creature in the Original cantina scene. Is that supposed to be the same character or just the same species?

I think Frog Lady looks a lot like another creature from the Special Edition of the cantina scene. That could be her husband before he went to Trask and made a place for them.
