The Mandalorian: 10 plot holes that everyone ignores
the Star wars The franchise began in 1977 and immediately became a cultural phenomenon thanks to its space battles and lightsaber duels. Disney bought the franchise in 2012, and since then fans have received a sequel trilogy, two standalone films, and several TV shows. For the most part, Disney Star wars has been a mixed bag, but most fans agree that The Mandalorian perfectly captures the essence of George Lucas’ original creation.
The series focuses on a Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin, who is tasked with bringing a child. He eventually befriends the child, to the point that they develop a kind of father-son relationship. The Mandalorian tells a pretty straight-line story, and season two has quite a bit of fan service, which is why not many people see flaws in it, but there are actually a few plot holes.
ten Bo-Katan rejected the Dark Saber even though she accepted it in Rebels
Star Wars Rebels gave fans the most heartbreaking death in the franchise, but it also produced one of The Mandalorian larger plot holes. Bo-Katan appeared in Rebels, where she fought against the Empire to free Mandalore, and Sabine Wren offered her the Dark Saber because she believed she was its rightful owner.
Bo-Katan accepted the Darksaber because the other clans accepted it, but she eventually lost possession when the Empire and Moff Gideon destroyed Mandalore. In The Mandalorian, Din Djarin takes the black saber from Gideon and offers it to Bo-Katan, but she refuses to take it because the rules state that the owner of the sword can only be determined by fighting to the death.
9 There’s no way Din doesn’t know who Boba Fett is
Fans are thrilled to Boba Fett’s book because that will bring them back to the era of the original trilogy. Boba Fett is still one of the most popular Star wars characters of all time, and The Mandalorian made a lot of old fans smile when they brought back the veteran bounty hunter.
For some reason, Din had no idea who Boba was until chapter 14, and it makes absolutely no sense. Din is part of the Bounty Hunter’s Guild, the same guild that Boba had been a part of for years. As soon as Din joined the guild, someone would have told him about Boba, especially since he was a Mandalorian considered the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.
8 Boba Fett could have taken his armor from the Marshall
The second season began with Din returning to Tatooine to find another Mandalorian. Fans initially thought it was Boba Fett because the man was wearing his armor, but it turned out to be more of the Town Marshall. He obtained the armor from a group of Jawas.
At the end of the episode, Boba Fett watches Din take his armor, then he follows Din through the galaxy in order to retrieve it. If Boba knew where his armor was, why didn’t he just take it from the Marshall earlier instead of following Din’s ship, which nearly got destroyed several times? The answer is simple actually, as the plot needed Boba and Din to meet in Tython.
7 The show forgot that Cara Dune was wanted by the New Republic
The destruction of Alderaan is one of the greatest atrocities in all of Star wars, and this is the reason why Cara Dune decided to fight the Empire as one of the Shock Soldiers of the Rebellion. When the Empire fell, Dune continued to hunt high-ranking Imperials, but when the New Republic decided to focus more on diplomacy and peace, she decided to become a mercenary.
When Din first meets her in Season 1, they fight because she thinks someone sent her after her, and when they sit down to talk, she reveals that her mercenary actions have her. transformed into a wanted criminal of the New Republic. In Season 2, however, she speaks to an officer of the New Republic and her wanted status is completely ignored to the point that she is instead named Marshal of the New Republic.
6 If Gideon wants Grogu alive, why is he trying to vaporize him in Chapter 8
Star wars is filled with moments of suspense, and one of the most suspenseful moments of The Mandalorian came in Season 1 when Grogu used the Force to deflect the flames produced by an incinerator soldier. The soldier was dispatched by Moff Gideon, who wanted to burn anyone hiding inside the local cantina.
Fans learn that Gideon wants Grogu alive, but if so, why is he ordering a soldier to burn him alive? Later in that same episode, Gideon pilots a Tie Fighter and shoots Grogu and his friends multiple times. If just one of those hits had hit Grogu by mistake, the youngster would have been vaporized.
5 The series completely forgot about Yaddle
Even devoted fans have found parts of The clone wars boring, but even they would agree that Ashoka Tano was the best character on the show. Ashoka is very popular, which is why she appeared in Rebels, and why she gets her own live action series.
When she appeared in chapter 13 of The Mandalorian, she mentioned that she had only met one member of the Grogu race before, which means Yoda, but that cannot be true. Yaddle was a female member of Yoda’s species, and she served on the Jedi Council for The phantom menace. She is one of the only Jedi to survive Order 66, meaning she was still alive and in the Jedi Temple when Ashoka was a Padawan.
4 One of Luke’s lines in TLJ should now be reconnected
The sequel trilogy was incredibly confrontational, but Luke and the other heroes still managed to leave an impact on the story. In The Last Jedi, Luke tells Rey that he can’t train her because he feels something bad about her, something he has only felt once before. This previous evil was in Kylo Ren.
In the Mandalorian, Luke takes Grogu because Ashoka refused to train him because she feared that there was potentially something wrong with him. Even though Luke managed to help Grogu overcome his darkness, The Mandalorian has now made his statement in TLJ inaccurate, which actually has significant ramifications for Luke’s character arc.
3 The entire facial recognition terminal makes no sense
In Chapter 15, Mayfield is released from prison so he can help Din find Moff Gideon’s ship. To do this, they go to an Imperial facility so that they can access a computer that would have Gideon’s location. The catch is, the computer has to scan the person’s face to make sure they’re part of the Empire.
This scanning feature literally makes no sense as Din simply walks up and the scanner gives him access. Din was never an Imperial, so the computer should have locked him immediately. On top of that, Din was accessing the computer under Mayfield’s Imperial identity, so the computer should have registered him as an impostor.
2 How no one knew who Luke was
Luke was one of the greatest pilots in the galaxy and he used these skills to destroy the first Death Star. Most importantly, he is the Jedi master who helped defeat the Empire, a feat that has made him the symbol of hope throughout the galaxy.
Its appearance in The Mandalorian has made a lot of hardcore fans cry, but when he reveals himself to Din and his friends, neither of them know who he is. Luke is the main hero of the New Republic, so there’s no way nobody knows his name. It makes even less sense that Cara Dune doesn’t know who he is since they were both part of the rebellion.
1 Grogu’s age doesn’t make sense compared to Yoda’s
When Grogu was introduced he was stated to be around 50 years old, apparently making him a toddler in human age. Yoda was 900 years old when he died, and if someone were to match his age with Grogu’s, something is wrong.
Yoda said he trained the Jedi for 800 years, which means he became a Jedi Knight at the age of 100. If Grogu is a toddler at 50, that means he would be the equivalent of a toddler at 100. If Yoda was old enough to become a Jedi Knight at 100, then Grogu’s age doesn’t make sense as he would have been. a Padawan during the events of Revenge of the Sith, not a young one.
