In the third episode of our podcast (check out all the episodes of PodSailing here), we mentioned that Tom Angleberger’s short story, “Whills” – from “Star Wars: A Certain Point of View” – had inspired us to write our own version. Enjoy our “Mandalorian Whills” below – which we wrote after the conclusion of Season 1. If you haven’t already watched Season 1 of the Mandalorian:
- There are Season 1 Spoilers below.
Oh, and check out the new “Empire Strikes Back: A Certain Point of View”, which is awesome!
Brady Whill: The Empire has fallen. But the fledgling New Republic still struggles to restore order in the planets of the Outer Rim.
Auntie Whill: WOOHOOOO! We’re going to get to see Luke and Leia and Han and Chewie and R2-D2 and C-3PO! This is going to be awesome!!!!!!!!
BW: I’m sorry, but this story is about Mando, a Mandalorian. But you miiiiiiight see a character who reminds you of someone in the originals at the end of Chapter 1.
AW: Oooh! Wedge? An Ewok? Lando?
BW: I hate to break it to you, but this character was also in the prequels too.
AW: If it’s Jar-Jar Binks, I’m going to give up watching TV and spend my extra free time working as a bartender in the Mos Eisley cantina.
BW: They don’t hire humans anymore.
AW: WHAT??? That’s just crazy talk!
BW: Head there yourself.
AW: OK, Fine. Finish your little story. But I’m not going to like it.
BW: Crime syndicates abound, along with remnants of Imperial forces. On a lawless planet, Greef Carga runs The Guild, a coalition of Bounty Hunters.
AW: Greef Carga? Does he know SpongeBob Squarepants?
BW: Ugh. You are in a complete different world than me.
AW: Thanks, Captain Obvious.
BW: A lone Bounty Hunter, known in name only by his association with The Mandalorians returns to The Guild with a ship full of captured fugitives and in search of a new bounty…
AW: Oh, you mean Din Djarin?
BW: Ugh, you just spoiled all of Episode 8. Speaking of that, how did you know? I thought you didn’t watch The Mandalorian Episodes.
AW: Well, I didn’t think I wasn’t going to like it, but then HOLY COW, BABY YODA IS SOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BW: I’m going to have to write you up for two spoiler violations. If you get a third, you get demoted to Whill bathroom cleaner.
AW: OK, fine, I’m just gonna go read up on the history of the Dark Saber, for no particular reason and which has totally nothing at all to do with The Mandalorian.
BW: Third spoiler! You know what that means!
AW: Awwwwwwww, man. Intern Whill had beans for dinner…
