The Mandalorian Discussion Thread - * SPOILERS * — Page 18

I will say, for those worrying the titular Mando would just be a Boba Fest clone, they have done well to individualize him, in particular his attachment to Mandalorian culture. If Boba Felt does indeed show up next season, as many are speculating, I think there differences will become all the more apparent. Could actually work well as an interesting storyline.

a fun fan-made video…

I find that answer vague and unconvincing.

Has there been any news, a release date, or even confirmation, that season one of The Mandalorian will be released on blu-ray?

 
 

I saw this brilliant piece of art for season one of The Mandalorian earlier - by James Raiz (https://twitter.com/boxofficeartist):-

^ Ah man 😃 Sorry, should have checked first.

By the way - I love your documentary threads on here, ZkinandBonez; some really great content in there and easily accessible too 😃

I hope we soon get some docs, features and BTS content for The Mandalorian as well.

Thanks. I just made a similar thread for stuff like The Mandalorian, ST, PT, etc.

Also, I remember seeing a sizzle-reel video for The Mandalorian on one of the many videos taken by the audience at the SWC panel and I’m a bit surprised that it hasn’t been released officially yet.

I’d buy a physical release of the series. I seldom buy discs these days because I’ve yet to be unable to stream anything I like. However, for the films I like enough to make full-film audio rips into MP3s for long drives or flights, I need a physical release.

There are lots of people who think Disney won’t ever release these because streaming subscriptions would go down. I could easily be wrong on this, but I doubt they would lose money. There are countless fans who have every release and box set of these films that have been offered through the years. There may also be plenty of people who either can’t or won’t buy all the streaming services offered but who may be more than happy to purchase a DVD set.

Streaming has become so mainstream and prioritized that for many people, the option to watch, much less own, physical discs isn’t even really an option to them. The idea that there’s a big enough number of people who would buy physical releases of the show instead of streaming them doesn’t seem realistic to me, I agree. They wouldn’t lose money if they issued this series on blu-ray or 4K UHD.

For better or worse (largely worse if you care about things like picture quality) the mainstream audience considers streaming to be the primary home video format now, and prefer to watch their shows via the internet. The discs wouldn’t be competition with that. They’d be a very cool secondary income stream for the property though, and they should exploit that.

Yeah I suspect it will go the way of Stranger Things. Like that, this is a flagship series for their platform that has a massively broad appeal. Like ST, I see The Mandalorian getting a disc release eventually, but it might be a while yet.

Why would they?

Because most Star Wars fans are obsessive & would love to add it to their collections.
Therefore Big D would make lotsa money & get an even bigger return on their investments.

The idea about it damaging their streaming revenue is silly, & D+ knows this.

Sure, I can stream it just about anywhere, but I’d love a 4k presentation with no compression artifacts.

Yes. You buy once, they never get more money. You own subscription, they always get more money.

A lot of people don’t pick up on what’s happening. Not to sound like some conspiracy theorist but Disney Plus has been a success and it’s going down in history. Give it a couple decades and movies theaters will be on the decline, if not at the point of obscurity.

I don’t pay attention to much StarWars noise outside of this site, but it seems that most here & those I’ve spoke to in life, have liked this show. That’s cool.
Anybody know of any haters?

Go to the YouTube comment sections. You’ll find some before long.

But then again, the YouTube comment section is the worst part of humanity, so maybe we shouldn’t trust their word on things.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000 edits), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian.
May the midichlorians be with you.

Haven’t come across any haters yet. There are at least ten people at work (just in my Dept) who are huge fans.

I think The Mandalorian finally disproves the myth that Star Wars fans are impossible to please. The reaction to the show so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Even the small minority of people who don’t like the show aren’t angry about it. Make a small-scale TV show that respects the canon and makes the audience care about the characters, and fans will eat it up.

I don’t think “respecting the canon” has a whole lot to do with why it’s liked though. Not to any real degree. Nor should it be, honestly. Canon isn’t that important, ultimately. It’s just as malleable as any other story element. What’s important is whether or not you put some thought into why you’re breaking - or adhering - to it, and execute that thought well.
