- The series is set exactly five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983) and six years before the birth of the character Rey (played by Daisy Ridley in the franchise).
- Baby Yoda became an internet sensation following the release of the series! Likewise, due to secrecy there was no toys available for the character when the series first streamed on Disney+ in 2019. Toys didn’t become available until early 2020!
- Directors Davie Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa and Deborah Chow all make cameos in the series as X-Wing pilots!
- Filmmaker Werner Herzog chose to co-star in the series to help finance a future project of his! He revealed that whilst he had never seen a Star Wars movie before joining The Mandalorian cast, when he read the screenplay he was really interested in the role!
- The series helped launch Disney+ and premiered on the first day the streaming service became available.
