Despite both being relatively new, Netflix’s The Witcher series and Disney’s The Mandalorian have taken the world by storm. And with a fresh decade just days away, sci-fi and fantasy fans are already placing both shows on their ‘best of’ lists for the 2010s, flattery which, truth be told, is well deserved, considering their standout quality.
And so, while you’d be forgiven for thinking that two very different genres would make for an impossible meeting, one fan has taken it upon themselves to try yielding fantastic results in the process. As you can see, the video above features a clip from episode 3 of The Mandalorian where Baby Yoda, left to his own devices, begins tinkering with various buttons on Mando’s ship.
Flicking one switch prompts Jaskier’s ballad for Geralt of Rivia to start playing – as a hologram, no less – in the cockpit, before being promptly turned off again. In a more subtle touch, a shot of the ship’s various interfaces briefly flashes a map of the Continent – The Witcher‘s setting – on-screen before cutting back to the mischievous little green guy.
With both shows having now concluded their initial run, fans can no doubt expect further scene splices such as these to arrive in the weeks ahead which, at the very least, should help soften the agonizing wait for future seasons.
Speaking of which, The Mandalorian season 2 is scheduled to debut on Disney Plus sometime in 2020 according to showrunner Jon Favreau, while followers of The Witcher will sadly need to exercise patience until 2021 before they’re able to continue Geralt of Rivia’s adventures.
