The spiritual mysteries of 'The Mandalorian'

November 22, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

What is the Mandalorian religion? It's a question consistently trending on Google since the "Star Wars" series premiered last year. Answers have been sparse -- but a recent episode contained a major revelation.

For the uninitiated, "The Mandalorian" is a live-action series that explores an outer rim of the ever-expanding "Star Wars" galaxy.

Raised by a religious cult, Djarin suddenly discovers other Mandalorians who -- gasp!

And now, with "The Mandalorian," we see the "Star Wars" universe borrowing from another contemporary feature of religion: the battle between orthodox conservatives and liberals.

(There's more about Mandalorians in other "Star Wars" series. )

These new Mandalorians mock Djarin's conservative practices and tell him that he's actually part of a small sect of religious zealots called "The Death Watch. "

In the "Mandalorian," Djarin weakly insists: "There is only one Way. The Way of the Mandalore," then turns on his rocket backpack and flies away.

In some ways, the clash of religious views in "The Mandalorian" echoes the story of American religion over the past few decades.
