While the Star Wars fan base may be fractured, The Mandalorian will go a long way in bringing back many of the fans who have left.
It’s no secret the Star Wars fan base has been fractured. After The Last Jedi, there was a group of fans who weren’t happy with the direction of the franchise.
Many of them are not excited about Star Wars: Episode IX, which comes out this December, but there is still something that could certainly get them to enjoy the fandom again.

The gritty television series is set to hit Disney’s new streaming service this November. Star Wars fans are excited over it even though we have few details on it. It takes place just a few years after Return of the Jedi with a bounty hunter taking a job that involves recovering a person for a mysterious client.
Pablo Pascal stars as the title character along with Gina Carrano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Espisito, Werner Herzog and more.
But those small details aren’t what will bring those fans back. No, it’s more nuanced than that. And we look at five reasons why The Mandalorian will being back the lost Star Wars fans.
Watching from home
Going to the movies can be a chore, especially if you have kids. Some people don’t want to go the movies, and you also have to wait to get a ticket especially when it comes to Star Wars. Tickets can be sold out and then you risk spoilers until you get a chance to go to the movies.
In the case of The Mandalorian, fans can stream right from home. And the cost of two months of Disney+ is generally less than the price of a movie ticket.
The Disney streaming service will give fans a chance to consume content the way they want on their own terms. While not watching the episodes right away can risk spoilers, you’re still not beholden to a specific time.
