The Mandalorian (aka Din Djarin) made his return in The Book of Boba Fett Chapter 5 – and got a few upgrades, along the way. One thing that "Chapter 5: The Return of the Mandalorian" immediately established is that Mando has taken a liking to his newest elite weapon, the Darksaber, which won in battle from Moff Gideon. The Mandalorian Season 2 finale made Mando's Beskar spear the star in his duel with Gideon, and we didn't really get to see him use the legendary sword of the Mandalorian Jedi – until today.
Thanks to director Bryce Dallas Howard, Star Wars fans are now geeking out hard over The Mandalorian's epic first battle(s) with the Darksaber!

#TheBookOfBobaFett #Mando The darksaber is my sexuality. That shit is so unfathomably cool I don't have the words and the fact they're equating it to a broadsword in how it's to be wielded makes it 10 times cooler somehow. pic.twitter.com/cRlnA5orkT— | Niall, The Eternal Knight | (@TheJediWatchman) January 26, 2022
Mando isn't just wielding the Darksaber as a novelty – he's helping to deepen its entire mythology.prevnext

i was so worried din was gonna lose the darksaber on the commercial flight to tatooine 😭
Seriously, the tensest moment in this whole episode wasn't the Darksaber in battle – it was the Darksaber in a suitcase.prevnext
Luke will teach Din how to use the darksaber i know it— cora | tbobf spoilers (@korrasyndulla) January 26, 2022
There are only two real teachers for Din Djarin to wield the Darksaber better: Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. Either way, we'll take another epic Jedi cameo.prevnext
