I know I’ve been spamming this thread recently - sorry folks - but in case anyone missed it, ILM just realised a 17-minute documentary about the model work of The Razor Crest. It’s great and I’m glad practical effects are making a comeback.

^ That ‘Inside ILM: Creating the Razor Crest’ video was a really cool and insightful watch.

The short Variety article also a decent read too mate.

Nice one 👍

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

If that’s spam, then I would like some more, please!

(I added it to the documentary spreadsheet.)

Denmark Disney+ ad has (accidentally?) confirmed the casting of Rosario Dawson and Timothy Olyphant in season 2: https://thedirect.com/article/the-mandalorian-season-2-disney-rosario-dawson-timothy-olyphant-cast
The ad has now been taken down.

Almost certain that Ahsoka Tano will be in the show now. As for Timothy Olyphant, of course a lot of people say Cobb Vanth from the Aftermath trilogy; I haven’t read those books in ages though so I’ve forgotten who he is.

I haven’t read the books, but from what I’ve gathered Vanth bought Fett’s armor from some Jawas and is posing as him.

Also the ad was in German, not Danish. Not that it’s important, but as a Scandinavian I felt that I should point that out.

No no, thanks for pointing it out. I first heard that the ad was German, but the article said it was from Disney+ Denmark, so I got confused.

Vanth is a guy who acquired Mandalorian armor (presumably Boba Fett’s) and became a prominent lawman on Tatooine.

I hope Ahsoka’s reported role is a glorified cameo or a really meaningful bit part. I trust Favreau’s and Filoni’s judgement and hope they’ll manage to justify the inclusion of all these known characters in the story.

Jordan Maison, a guy who’s had reliable Star Wars ‘scoops’ in the past, says there should be a trailer 2:

https://twitter.com/JordanMaison/status/1311698063233372160?s=20

The only thing that guy ever “scooped” was The Clone Wars coming back, and IIRC it wasn’t so much that he scooped it as he was the last person to “guess” it out loud before an announcement was made. He’s really good at “guessing” things that are beyond obvious and then just waiting for that obvious thing to happen. That doesn’t make him a scooper, though.

But then again, he’s also way nicer, and loads less obnoxious than 99% of all fandom “scoopers” or “insiders” so better he gets that attention than someone who honestly believes hearing behind-the-scenes news makes them an important “reporter” with status or whatever.

But still “Sources tell me the most popular tv show on Disney+ will have more than a single commercial” isn’t a particularly hard “scoop” to “leak.”

Really interested in what this graffitied, urban setting from the trailer is like. I’ve seen some people complain that because of the streetlights, it looks too much like an actual modern city on earth, so I’m looking forward to seeing it in the show so I can figure out what I think of it.

It reminds me of Lothal.

I see the blue fish guy from the first episode will return; https://youtu.be/ICuqzhViWAI?t=40 They’re in a troop transport, though in new canon its been used for prison transport as well, so I guess they have to break him out of jail for some reason?

With Cara Dune & Greef returning, plus rumors of Ahsoka, Rex/Fett, etc. I’m starting to wonder if this series is going to end up very similar to Rebels. I.e. simple but fun 1st season, cameos galore in season 2, then maybe a really connected plot (more or less) as they wrap things up in seasons 3 & 4. Of course we don’t know how long this series is going to last, but 4 seasons would make sense and that’s what Giancarlo Esposito claimed was the planned length in an interview recently.

Also, and this might be an odd thing to be excited about, but I love the old crackling radio sound from the x-Wing pilot from the first few seconds of the trailer. New SW has had a hard time emulating the sound effects of the OT and it seems they finally figured out how to do it. If I remember it correctly then Ben Burt recorded all the stormtrooper dialogue and radio transmission via old walkie-talkies. The recent movies seems to have tried to emulate this digitally and its not quite the same. Ditto on the holograms which until The Mandalorian looked to crisp and detailed (though it’s still not quite OT).

There were no big reveals, and from a quick scroll on Twitter that’s disappointed a lot of people, but that was a very well put-together trailer. Music is awesome. And that line, “If I can locate other Mandalorians, they can guide me,” has me even more excited.

Also, forget about Ahsoka… Star-Trek-alien-looking blue fish man returns!

I loved that too. The show does such a great job of capturing the old-school Star Wars vibe. This also confirms that the x-wings are indeed intercepting the Razorcrest, instead of fighting alongside it, which I like: the New Republic aren’t the default ‘good guys’, they’re now just another authority getting in The Mandalorian’s way.
