The Mandalorian, season 3: episode 6, the most pop of all episodes < p class="lead"> Name of Zeus! They put Christopher Lloyd in Star Wars!

The Mandalorian doesn't even bother to tell stuff anymore. The Disney Plus series just has to throw Baby Yoda into the arms of a pop star, like a cultural totem you'd want to take your picture with. And immediately, the canvas ignites! And it's true that this episode 6 of season 3 of The Mandalorian, if not having any script interest, is rather very cool, almost fun. Thanks to three nice surprises. Spoiler alert!

In “Guns For Hire”, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), Grogu and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) go to the planet Plazir-15, a Paradise supported by Empire Droids, reconditioned to support the inhabitants who no longer even need to work. To govern them there is a Duchess, too much heir to the local throne, and Captain Bombardier, her bearded husband.

A trendy couple played by the singer Lizzo, and also by the actor of Jumanji >, Jack Black, currently living his best life as a pop-culture kid, joining the Star Wars universe as he voices Bowser in the movies in the movie Super Mario. Made up in the most pop way possible, the two pop-cultural icons play around at will in front of the two Mandaloriansand especially against the adorable Grogu.

Directed by Bryce Dallas Howard (star of Jurassic World) this episode offers us a bonus third cameo even crazier: Christopher Lloyd is also making his debut in Star Wars. And like the old Doc Brown from the Back to the Future trilogyis undoubtedly one of the most emblematic faces of pop-culture, suddenly, his participation, even anecdotal, in the work created by George Lucas, is downright pop-cultural earthquake!

So everything it's not very serious and ends in a no-holds-barred duel, followed by the expected delivery of the Darksaber to Bo-Katan by her new BFF, Din-Djarin, also dispatched: < em>“Ah no but in fact, the sword belongs to you, because the other time, when I fell…” Anyway, all that is absurd. And at the same time, it's all so deliciously uplifting. Here's hoping The Mandalorian Season 3 will pass the second at some point…
