  • In The Empire Strikes Back, the carbonite freezing process was a Bespin mining tool which Darth Vader and Boba Fett tested on Han Solo before trying to use it on Luke. Fett even expressed doubts about Han surviving the process, showing it was not, at the time, a standard bounty hunter technique.

    However, The Mandalorian takes place years after the original trilogy, so it's somewhat plausible that, after being used with success on a high-profile bounty like Solo (with the result being displayed by Jabba for months), the carbonite technique was eventually adopted by other bounty hunters with simplified, more portable equipment. It's also possible that the manufacturer of the Carbon Freezing equipment decided to capitalise on the freezing of Solo to manufacture the device used by the Mandalorian as a product for Bounty Hunters to use to transport their prey to their clients.

    The carbonite usage is also more efficient for the Mandalorian, who prefers to have multiple bounty pucks for the increased commissions - stacks of frozen prisoners are care-free, and require little space Vs cells with active prisoners requiring food, meds, etc., needing additional space in an already small spacecraft. Edit

  • They use "tracking fobs". The closer you get to a target, the faster the fob will beep. It isn't clear how the fobs locate the targets. It's likely based on DNA. Edit

  • The first season takes place five years after Return of the Jedi and 25 years before The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Edit
