'Star Wars' Fans Are Geeking Over 'The Mandalorian' Debut of the Famed Darksaber


The Mandalorian has received some criticism for "playing it safe," but that hasn't seemed to stymie the overwhelming support and adoration for the Jon Favreau directed Disney+ series. In fact, a huge number of subscriptions to the Mouse's streaming service can probably be directly attributed to when the exclusive title's first trailer dropped. 

The show's already gifted Star Wars fans with a lot of huge developments and Season 1 ended with a bombshell: the Darksaber.

What is the Darksaber on The Mandalorian?

It was never depicted or even mentioned in any of the films, so it's understandable if, while watching the show's season finale, you were left scratching your head at what the big deal regarding the mythical weapon was. If you watched the Clone Wars animated series, then you'd know a lot more about the blade's origins than most. 

The sword was first created by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian Jedi.
