What Is Beskar Steel And Why Is It So Important On ‘The Mandalorian’?

The hit series The Mandalorian has introduced a number of new concepts to the Star Wars canon, and it has popularized others that were hitherto rather obscure. Mandalorian iron, originally popularized in the animated Clone Wars and Rebels series, falls into the latter category. Also known as beskar steel, the alloy is featured on the live-action Disney series, causing multiple online vendors to create beskar-themed products inspired by its rapid rise in popularity. However, very little is known about this mysterious metal. We scoured the galaxy to find out all we could on beskar steel’s origins, history, uses, and deeper mysteries. Read on to learn why beskar steel plays such an important role in Mando’s cultural heritage, personal identity, and religious beliefs - and why everyone in the galaxy seems to want it so badly.
