Baby Yoda is not the only thing that makes “The Mandalorian” a memorable addition to the “Star Wars” franchise.
With its wide appeal to hardcore and new “Star Wars” fans alike since launching on Disney+ last November, it is no surprise that the first live-action “Star Wars” series is a contender for a total of 15 Emmys, including outstanding drama series and categories in cinematography, special effects and costumes.
