Psychology of ‘The Mandalorian’: What Makes up Mando’s “Moral Code”?

The Mandalorian explores how an individual’s moral development — or moral code — fosters their decision making and personal identity.

This Psych Cinema focuses on the Disney+ show, The Mandalorian. The main theme of the Star Wars Universe is underdogs — and how they will fight against all odds for what they think is right. The show follows lead character Mando as he puts himself in the crossfire of the Empire to protect the baby Yoda.

Therapist Jonathan Hetterly analyzes how The Mandalorian highlights moral development, positive psychology, and death anxiety. Tune in to hear Jonathan’s analysis here:
