Mandalorian – Spaghetti Western Style (Video)
Here’s a couple of videos for The Mandalorian in the style of old spaghetti westerns like The Good, Bad, and the Ugly. I think they’re a perfect match.
It’s clear while watching The Mandalorian that these movies were an influence. The idea of a lone gunslinger that relies on his skills and wits to survive is the central plot of both.
Samurai movies are an obvious influence as well. The lone warrior trope is present in Yojimbo. The theme of a warrior and child against all odds is straight from Lone Wolf and Cub. The episode where farmers give all they have to hire protection against bandits is Seven Samurai.
There’s a lot of these type of videos on YouTube. These were my favorite.
