The Creators of ‘The Mandalorian’ Have Been Hiding a Beloved ‘Star Wars’ Character In Plain Sight

When the first trailer for The Mandalorian was released the Star Wars fandom practically lost it as we got a glimpse at what seemed to be IG-11 but Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni quickly debunked the theories, saying that it was a brand new IG-unit called IG-88.

Of course, we all believed them, and it didn’t matter considering that the droid had been destroyed in the first episode anyway. Or was he?

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

In the latest episode of The Mandalorian we were reintroduced to the character after the Ugnaught, Kuill, found the droid and rehabilitated it. While he told the story of the droid’s journey to 100% capacity again he said his name, “IG-11.”

My jaw dropped. I knew it! I knew it! I knew it was IG-11. It’s such an exciting development. The fact that this is IG-11, a fan favorite for his brief appearance in The Empire Strikes Back, is really a delightful development for this series. Hopefully he survives the duration of the first season, meaning he’ll probably have a greater role in Season 2 as he journeys alongside The Mandalorian in an epic adventure.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force be with you.

She was fifteen now. Old enough to be considered a woman in the tribe that she was once a part of. She looked at her bare dark-skinned arms covered in the cultural markings of her tribe created by bold lines of white paint. There was a symbol that touched her heart. It meant strength and it was drawn by her mother.

“You have always been strong,” her mother had told her as she stroked the symbol onto her skin with the blistering paint that would sear into one’s skin.

That same night her village had been attacked. Continue reading Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Twenty-Three
