The Star Wars franchise has given rise to many media products based on the original storyline. The Mandalorian game series is one such project. It was filmed specifically for the streaming service Disney + and debuted with it in 2019. Now there are two seasons, but it doesn’t stop there – the developers are already preparing to release new episodes.
Meaning and History
What is Mandalorian?
This is an American television series filmed in the genre of a space western. It was made for the Disney + streaming channel, the first in a Star Wars movie. Mandalorian debuted in 2019.
The idea of creating a series based on Star Wars has excited the minds of many directors. At first, this idea was hatched for a long time by George Walton Lucas, the “father” of the media franchise. Then Jonathan Kolia Favreau took over and, admittedly, succeeded: he wrote the scripts for all the episodes, combining work with the filming of The Lion King. The plot reveals the problems of fatherhood and the eternal philosophical questions of good and evil.
Choosing a logo for Mandalorian turned out to be no less demanding than finding the right actors. Each season has its distinctive mark, and there is a possibility that the number will soon increase.
The logo of the first season appeared on the poster in 2019. Designers designed it as the name of the series, combining text and graphic elements. The basis is the phrase “THE MANDALORIAN.” The article is at the top between two long horizontal lines. It is centered and scaled-down. The second line contains the word “MANDALORIAN.” It consists of large stylized letters through which the colorful landscape can be viewed.
The inscription resembles a window to another world: against the background of “M,” one can see the rays of the sun, and inside the middle “A,” there is a gray humanoid figure with a weapon on his back. This is Mandalorian – the main character of the television series. The background is deliberately darkened to emphasize the brightness of the letters and illustrations.
For the second season, the designers changed the original logo. They kept the inscriptions in their original form and added another one – “STAR WARS.” The franchise’s name is issued in a corporate font and is located at the top with center alignment. Through the word “MANDALORIAN,” you can see a dark blue landscape. This is probably the night that turns into dawn because the sky depicts the crescent moon and the first morning rays. Mandalorian no longer looks lonely. He stands next to Baby Yoda, whom he had to rescue in the series’s first season and needs to be returned to the Jedi.
The Mandalorian civilization has its symbol – the skull of the Mythosaur. According to legend, this horned beast once lived on the planet Mandalore until the humanoid race Taungs destroyed its population. The Mythosaur is a giant reptile, but the ancestors of the Mandalorians managed to tame it and use it as a mount and beast of burden. The skull of this creature became an emblem because the ruler of the local inhabitants wore it as a helmet. This iconic attribute is called “kyr’bes.”
What does the Mandalorian logo mean?
The Mandalorian logo features a white skull on a black background. It is a Mythosaurus, a giant sea monster used for horse riding by the ancient Mandalorians.
The graphic sign consists of black geometric shapes. There are tusks on the sides, and in the center, there is an elongated “blot,” in which the eye sockets and the nose openings are visible. Four vertical lines extend down from it.
Font and Colors of the Emblem
Does the Mandalorian have a logo?
Yes, Mandalorian characters have their logo – in the form of a skull of a horned Mythosaurus. The film of the same name also has a logo consisting of a stylized name of the series. Its new version was presented in 2020.
What is the Mandalorian sigil?
The Mandalorian Signet is a ring with a common symbol of all clans and factions that it unites. The seal was given as a sign of conquest and identification of the Mandalorian representatives.
What does Boba Fett’s symbol mean?
The most famous symbol on Boba Fett’s armor is the Mythosaurus skull. And on his chest, there is a round sign of Jaster Mereel – a crossed-out ring with an ear, a drop, and a mysterious letter. The ear is associated with agriculture on the planet Concord Dawn, where Jaster Mereel lived.
The font for the largest word resembles a modified Agency Black from the Font Bureau. The designers removed the horizontal bars inside the “A,” sharpened the middle of the “M,” and made the lettering overall more legible. For the article “THE,” a standard sans-serif typeface was chosen, which does not have any distinctive elements by which it can be identified. And for the phrase “STAR WARS,” an individual font is used with elongated vertical lines at the “S” and “R” and with small intra-letter gaps.
The color scheme is very varied, considering the rich graphics of the logos. The wordmark of the first season contains many shades of orange and gray, while blues and pinks dominate the palette of the second season. The background in both cases is black.
