Creative Fan Edits “The Mandalorian” into an 80s Sitcom

Disney+ has already given fans so much to look forward to – but on top of all its old material, the new steaming network has also given us The Mandalorian.

The show stars Pedro Pascal as…the Mandalorian. If you don’t know, that’s a sort of bounty hunter like Boba Fett in the original Star Wars movies. Chronology-wise, the show takes part after the fall of the Empire but before the formation of the First Order.

Pascal’s bounty hunter has somewhat dubious morals, but the show could also be viewed as about an overstretched father trying to make sense of life as he struggles to care for his newly-adopted (green) child.

We’re talking about Baby Yoda, here.

Memes have already made Baby Yoda famous, and so it was only a matter of time until someone reimagined the show as a 1980s sitcom about a father and son.


Fan Gareth Wood did a great job editing footage from the show with the goofy energy of the 1980s sitcoms some of us grew up watching.


Considering that Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released in 1983, the theme song and mood of this edit makes total sense. The video features upbeat music and a simple but bold font. Check it out!
