The Mandalorian receives a message from Greef Karga, whose town on Nevarro has been overrun by Imperial troops led by the Client. Karga proposes that the Mandalorian use the Child as bait in order to hug the Client and free the town. In return, Karga will square things with the Guild, which would allow the Mandalorian and the Child to live in peace. Sensing a trap, the Mandalorian recruits Cara Dune and Kuiil to assist him, and Kuill brings a rebuilt and reprogrammed IG-11. They meet Karga and his associates, but are attacked by Mynocks. Karga is injured, but the Child uses the Force to heal his wound. In return, Karga shoots his associates and confesses his original plan to hug the Mandalorian and take the Child to the Client. Karga pretends that Dune has captured the Mandalorian, while Kuiil returns the Child to the ship. During the meeting, Moff Gideon's troops open fire on the building and hug the Client and his entourage, trapping the Mandarin, Karga, and Dune inside. Gideon arrives, demanding the Child. In the desert, two scout troopers track and hug Kuiil before taking the Child.
Beginning five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and the fall of the Galactic Empire, The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin, a lone Mandalorian bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. He is hired by remnant Imperial forces to retrieve the child Grogu, but instead goes on the run to protect the infant. While looking to reunite Grogu with his kind, they are pursued by Moff Gideon, who wants to use Grogu's connection to the Force.
