In the old legends material Han wasn't the first.

I gave it a like anyway, looks good so far and wanted to know more about some of the other characters.

Season 7 of the Clone Wars is incoming as well.

The question is will the Mandalorian talk.
The Mandalorians were fleshed out alit in the old legends material.

Somebody in carbonite? It's become common practice since they tried it with Solo, then.
You'd certainly think so from how much it's used in various Star Wars games and other media. It's the downside of everyone extrapolating from limited examples - one bounty hunter brings in their target in carbonite, simply because they happened to be somewhere that had a carbon-freezing facility and a completely different dude used their bounty as a test subject, and suddenly every bounty hunter in Star Wars fiction is using it as a matter of course.

In the Bioware Star Wars games bounty hunters use wrist-mounted carbonite sprayers - no need for expensive, room-filling machinery to safely package your target, apparently, just give them a quick squirt and they're good to go.

Several times over, as I recall - at least, the Clone Wars cartoons (later built upon by Rebels) had a rather different take than the EU novels, which didn't always agree with each other. We'll have to see which way they take it in this series.

I dont know what "old legends" is, but I saw the movies, and he was defintely the first.
Legends is the old EU. All the old games, books, comics etc.

They had a planet where Carbonite was mined the Empress Teta system which was prominant in the Tales if the Jedi.

Legends was responsible for the Star Wars revival in the 90s and it's where Thrawns and the TIE Defender come from which have been added back into the new cannon.

It's also where things like double bladed lightsabers and the planet of Coruscant come from so it still influences Star Wars now.

They also lifted a huge amount of plot from legends in the new trilogy with the names filed off.

OK, all the non-canon stuff. So Han Solo was the first, like I said.
Disney canon. Not really well regarded, they just got Resistance canceled.
They're also losing money, the toys aren't selling, no one really cares about the new characters (polling on starwars.com) and they're heavily in debt.

Maybe they should have paid more attention to legends, it's better.

TLJ and Ross are almost recycling Dark Empire or most of the plot points. Badly and Dark Empire isn't that well regarded either.

Disney appears to be waking up though and they're not incapable of making decent Star Wars (Rebels, Rogue One).

The Mandalorian might even be good. Looks good. Maybe if they hold their breath and pray, or use Dave Filoni for storyboards.

Mand'oa.

No idea what you're talking about. Like I said, I watch the films (and some of the TV, but I'm not a cartoon guy). I've no interest in the old proliferation of novels and comics and stuff. Han Solo was the first person in carbonite, despite whateve rnon-canon sources you list.

He's not the first in the new canon either, Rex got frozen iirc in The Clone Wars which is canon. Morrusfails@starwars.

C3PO in ESB also seems to know he should be quite safe if he survived which would indicate he's not the first.

Well he's not the first in new canon or old. Anakin also wanted to do in in TCW to avoid sensors.

Like I said, not a cartoon guy.
Still canon.

I recommend both Clone Wars and Rebels. Clone wars is aimed more at adults, Rebels more kids I suppose but it's a highlight of the new Disney canon, Resistance is outright aimed at kids but isn't very good IMHO and just got canceled.

TCW is so good they made Anakin a likeable character, better acting I suppose.
