It's safe to say that the world was truly unprepared when the first episode of The Mandalorian finally revealed "the target". He's an unusual villain for the Star Wars universe, but the Stormtroopers at his command suggest that he has strong ties to the former galactic Empire.

Although Herzog revealed in previous interviews that his decision to sign on to "The Mandalorian" was primarily a financial one, the longtime director was nonetheless effusive about his time on set during Wednesday's chat.

The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau has teased that Baby Yoda will play a big part in the show, saying: "I wanted to surprise people, and I wanted to-well there are bigger arcs that go through the whole season and the whole throw of the show".

It's also gorgeous, and filmed using technology that meant the actors weren't acting in front of green screens, but actually acting in front of screens showing the real backgrounds.

The Mandalorian follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter who explores the outer areas of the Republic seen in the Star Wars movies. "Cinema is back to life".

The infamous 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special is one of the most weird and divisive installments of the long-running sci-fi franchise, being considered one of the best worst attempts at expanding the lore while also heavily criticized for its poor quality. So there's great puppetry, there's great audio effects. Chief among them is executive producer Dave Filoni, who also directed the show's pilot episode, and has worked on "Star Wars" projects for over a decade - including the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Rebels", the latter of which he created.
