"Part of the success of The Mandalorian so far is the familiarity of the world," says Charlie Hall. "In each episode of Disney Plus’ series, audiences hang out with a familiar face (er, helmet) and a baby resembling Yoda. It’s Star Wars. But they also get to go places in the Star Wars universe they’ve never gone before. It’s been an adventure into the dangerous unknown, with the laconic Mando as our guide. Up through episode 4, all of the fan service has been tucked into the corners of the frame. Chapter 5, however, slathers it on. The result is 30-odd minutes that play almost like a Star Wars parody, complete with a Han Solo cosplayer."
