Want to know how to watch the Mandalorian for free on Disney+? Then this IS the deal you are looking for. I just signed up myself. This method is 100% legal and legit so read on if you want the scoop on how to get the Mandalorian for absolutely free!
Put simply, the Mandalorian just rocks. I watched season one with my sons using Christopher’s Disney+ account, but he has since canceled it to save some coin. Truly, this is the best Star Wars saga since Return of the Jedi. By a mile. I am probably the biggest Star Wars nut ever. It’s amazing to me how this somewhat “darker” series really captures the spirit of the original films. If you liked the Star Wars films at all, don’t miss this series!
OK, enough Star Wars swooning for now, back to how to get the Mandalorian for free.
Now that we are two episodes into Season 2…[I wanted two episodes to watch back to back as the anticipation of seeing the 2nd one would have killed me.]
This got me thinking to my frugal myself. “Self, how can I watch the Mandalorian for free.”
I did a bit of Googling and wa-la! I came across this nice article over at SFGATE. The force is apparently strong with the crew over there and yep, there is a way.
“I am one with the force and the force is with me.”
SFGATE’s article was helpful but I found the setup process is a bit like trying to hoist an X-wing fighter out of the swamp using your mind, so I thought I would write this article to take you through it step by step.
Before I give you the goods, don’t miss this special trailer for Season Two!

How To Watch the Mandalorian for Free
Here’s the deal. Verizon has a special offer called “Disney+ on Us” that will give customers of their unlimited plans 6 months of Disney+ for free. And if you switch over to 5G or Fios home Internet the 6-month membership gets extended to a full year.
Existing Disney+ subscribers are also eligible for the deal. The deal pauses your existing subscription and then you will just resume paying when the deal period ends.
This means that you not only get access to the Mandalorian but also a TON of additional Star Wards content as well as delightfully nerdy content from Marvel.
This is almost as good as making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.
Here’s the official Season Two trailer:
Isn’t “The Child” [aka Baby Yoda] cute?! This sound-making toy is going to huge this holiday season. Check out the video for it over at Amazon if you have a chance. Ordering one!

- Follow the instructions on the screen to sign up for an eligible unlimited plan.
