Fans and journalists discussed the first episode on social media, with one writer describing it as “very, very good” and many specifically referencing the ending, which includes a massive cliffhanger.

Star Wars fans in the UK though aren’t able to watch The Mandalorian episode 1 yet – Disney+ launches on these shores on 31 March 2020 – and expressed their disappointment.

One wrote: “The true gauntlet is that people in the UK have to avoid Americans spoiling The Mandalorian for FOUR MONTHS.”

The first season will run for eight episodes and appear weekly on the streaming service.

Meanwhile, Star Wars fans have been reacting after a notorious scene from A New Hope was changed again upon the launch of Disney+.

The scene in question has prompted plenty of debate over whether Han or Greedo shoot first in their battle during A New Hope.

In a newly tweaked version of the scene that has made it onto the streaming service, neither of the pair are shown shooting first – they fire at about the same time.

Star Wars episode 9 – The Rise Of Skywalker – also comes to cinemas December 20.
