Of course, in terms of Star Wars super fan level griping, no one was thrilled that they invented the whole "Beskar Steel" thing, since it was called "Mandalorian Iron" for fucking ever.
They tried to retcon it and say, "Technically they refer to the same thing" and if you go look at Wookiepedia they've amended it to, "Beskar Steel, also known as Mandalorian Iron". They did that with lightsaber crystals too.
But considering one of Star Wars main weaknesses is giving names that sound stupid for things, I couldn't get stoked on Beskar Steel. Especially when, narratively, it makes more sense to call it by its other cooler name, instead of introducing more stupid sounding shit for people to keep track of.
And before anyone says, "That's just autism spectrum fanboy griping, all fictional universes give unnecessarily stupid names to regular things", allow me to remind you that the only musical genre explicitly mentioned by name in the Star Wars mythos is "Jizz". Not "Jazz", they couldn't just call is "Jazz". "Jizz
More baffilingly, Disney recanonized Jizz
. If I was Disney, literally the fucking first thing I would do upon decanonizing all the old EU would be like, "GUYS, I KNOW THIS SUCKS, BUT ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, THERE IS NO LONGER A MUSIC GENRE KNOWN AS JIZZ".
I was actually super stoked to hear regular person words like "hell" in The Mandalorian, it's about time Star Wars stopped mucking things up by making up a bunch of stupid sounding names for stuff that already has better names.
The next time someone is like, "the whole midi-chlorian thing is so fucking stupid", lets just remember that the original trilogy had a musical genre called Jizz.
