The first two episodes of The Mandalorian on Disney+

Disney+ launches on Tuesday in the UK and Disney has confirmed the first two episodes of the live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, will be available day-one.

This may make sense business-wise to keep folks subscribing, but makes no sense, to me as a fan, given season one ended last December in the US, and the Star Wars series is one of the most pirated since Game of Thrones.

It will only further frustrate fans during the coronavirus pandemic. Some much-needed levity, spearheaded by a pop culture phenomenon such as Baby Yoda, is required when so many of us are self-isolating and practicing social distancing, and this has been gravely misjudged. The internet remembers.

New episodes of The Mandalorian, along with the final season of The Clone Wars, will stream every Friday from 27th March.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. Stops people buying just a months worth.

    1. I know, but these are unprecedented times.

  2. I was disappointed too, I followed up with some. Clone Wars after.

    1. The 4K streaming quality is the best I’ve seen.
