Author: Brown, Jeffrey
Author of the bestselling Darth Vader and Son series (more than 3 million copies sold), Jeffrey Brown, brings his charmingly funny take on the Star Wars galaxy to The Mandalorian! Din Djarin, the terse Mandalorian bounty hunter, travels the galaxy with the adorable Grogu in tow. Whether he is keeping Grogu from messing with his controls while he flies the Razor Crest, trying to get him into the right Jedi schools, or stopping him from using the Force to steal extra snacks, Mando’s lessons as a caretaker will be instantly fun and recognizable to all families.   Brown’s colorful all-ages style and spin complement the show’s gritty milieu while accentuating the sweetness of the found family at the heart of the story. His unexpectedly funny touches and twists, and lighthearted interpretations of favorite characters, including Luke Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, IG-11, Peli Motto, Moff Gideon, Bo-Katan, The Armorer, and many more, will thrill fans and give them a way to appreciate the show in a whole new way. © & TM LUCASFILM LTD. Used Under Authorization. BASED ON THE SMASH HIT SHOW: The Mandalorian has the highest viewership of any live-action show on Disney+ (Marvel included) and has consistently dominated since its debut in 2019. The finale of Season 2 had an estimated 1.1 million viewers. The finale episodes of the follow-up show, The Book of Boba Fett, focused so much on the continuation of The Mandalorian and Grogu’s story that it was dubbed “Mandalorian Season 2.5” by fans and the viewership for those episodes alone shot up to 1.5 million viewers. THE CHILD IS BELOVED BY FANS: Disney kept Grogu a tightly guarded secret leading up to the character’s first appearance in episode 1, at which point “The Child” became a massive fan favorite, inspiring a merch explosion, thousands of pieces of fan art, and an unquenchable desire for the fan-dubbed “Baby Yoda.” THE PERFECT SUBJECT FOR JEFFREY BROWN: The Mandalorian’s relationship with the child is the perfect playground for Brown’s charming take on fatherhood. Like Brown’s Darth Vader, Mando is a brooding, serious, masked character with a dark past, but he opens up to the joys of found fatherhood in the presence of Grogu. Their dynamic on the show hits the same tone Brown plays on in Darth Vader and Son in brand-new parenting contexts. Perfect for: ? Fans of the Darth Vader and Son series ? Star Wars fans with kids of their own ? The 1.5M viewers of the new Disney+ Star Wars shows
