The Mandalorian premieres

The series starts sometime after the fall of the First Galactic Empire in “Return of the Jedi” and before the events of “The Force Awakens,” at which point the hot new fascist power of the First Order has already taken back over.

With no one in charge, the rules of law barely exist, meaning that underground dealings and individual firepower are even more powerful commodities than before.

It’s a show about a vicious killer with a tragic past and the faint glimmers of a beating heart.
