“The Mandalorian” Wins Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series at Critics Choice Super Awards

At the recent Critics Choice Super Awards, Star Wars: The Mandalorian took home the honor of Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Series, in a category that also included Outlander, Raised by Wolves, Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, Upload, and What We Do in the Shadows.

The past year has brought many new science fiction/fantasy series and The Mandalorian was one of the top shows. When talking about the series, creator and showrunner John Favreau discussed what he wanted to go into the show.

“We wanted to really wind it back to the things that inspired the original Star Wars and really get it small in scale and tell simple stories,” series creator and showrunner Jon Favreau told Deadline of The Mandalorian in August of last year. “Because part of what you inherit when you’re going to see Star Wars now is this whole history because the stories have been told for decades. And it was nice, with the new medium, to be able to start with a new set of characters to introduce a new audience.”

“But we always knew… and this is something I learned from [working] over at Marvel and working with Kevin Feige, is you always want to keep the core fans in mind, because they have been the ones that have been keeping the torch lit for many, many years,” Favreau continued. “But these are also stories for young people and for new audiences. These are myths, and so you always want to have an outstretched hand to people who might not have that background.”

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
