This week saw the arrival of the rulers of the planet Plazir-15: Captain Bombardier, played by Jack Black, and his wife, The Duchess, played by Lizzo. Christopher Lloyd also made an appearance as the head of security, Commissioner Helgait.

"Jack Black and Lizzo are the best part of the new Mandalorian episode," said one viewer. "Such a great episode, a classic funzzies police investigation plot, very good ending that moves the general plot a lot more and fucking Jack Black, Lizzo and Christopher Lloyd cameo ??? Amazing 10/10. [Bryce Dallas Howard] our queen," someone else enthused, while another echoed: "Jack Black and Lizzo playing a married couple in Star Wars is all I've ever needed in my life."

However, some fans weren't so sure about the cameos. "Maybe it’s just me (probably) I LOVED JACK BLACK AND LIZZO IT WAS SO FUN TO SEE THEM HERE but it felt Marvel-ish and almost out of place," one viewer lamented

Others were even less enthusiastic, tweeting: "Moff Gideon is only going to appear in the final 2 episodes… Criminally underusing [Giancarlo Esposito] yet again… I don't want to see Lizzo and Jack Black in Eurovision outfits."

"Mandalorian has totally lost its way, each episode is worse than the last one, really bad cameos (Jack Black/Lizzo & a wasted opportunity with Christopher Lloyd) & for what? If you're gonna do cameos get known characters back!" echoed someone else.
