Hard to Believe #079 – This is the Way: The Tao of the Mandalorian – with Mike Manzi
The Mandalorian carries on a Star Wars tradition that dates back to its inception. As creator George Lucas once said of his creation, “I wanted to make it so that young people would begin to ask questions about the mystery.”
But while the religion of the Jedi is incessantly fleshed out throughout Star Wars, that of the Mandalorians (specifically this Mandalorian) remains ambiguous and shrouded in secrecy.
To celebrate the launch of season 3 of The Mandalorian on Disney+, John and resident CageClub Star Wars superfan Mike Manzi discuss some of the religious traditions and ideas that are present in the series, explore what “The Way” actually means (beyond being a cool catchphrase) and ponder whether Din Djarin is actually more terrorist than warrior monk.
