They're going all in on Star Wars as their flagship property. Mando is just one aspect of it. See also: The High Republic publishing initiative, Waititi's film, Johnson's trilogy, Squadrons, etc

They are going to endlessly loop back and forth between Star Wars and Marvel like an Ouroboros of money

I can't wait to entertain you.


Wondered if this kind of tie in would ever come. I guess with two seasons in the can, they can now more comfortably sketch in new backstory or events without breaking the ever precious “canon”.

Forgive me, but doesn't that link just describe a novelization of the show, some comics which, yes, could be about new events, but other than that some coloring books, junior novelizations, a Little Golden Book, and visual guides? I'm not seeing much that will be new EU content there, so I think this is being blown a bit out of proportion.

Like I said, maybe the comics, though this link is super vague about that. But that's about it. At least in this link.

They putting out the first person flight sim in a couple months. It seems like whoever is guiding SW right now realizes that people care about the franchise but just not all the dumb skywalker poo poo. Hopefully the game and all this new EU stuff coming out sticks to it and doesn’t compromise. Even fallen order was good.

There's a new original novel and "some comics" coming that are Mando tie ins.

Oh I thought the "new original novel" was just a novelization of The Mandalorian, but I see now that if I click the "original novel" link, it's something called "Sparrow". Alright then.

An interesting character detail that I only just picked up on was her line about mostly seeing action after Endor, meaning that she only joined the Rebellion near the end of the war, and not right after Alderaan went kablooey like you'd probably think

I assume it was harder to join the Rebellion than heading down to the local recruiter.

I dunno, I'd imagine around Yavin or thereabouts, enough folks would have been raring to go that the Alliance would have actually invested in a proper recruiting drive

One common career path: Get quality training from an Imperial Academy, defect, use that training against the Empire.

There are enough canonical defections its a wonder the Empire didn't simply start seeding more double agents.
