This is so interesting to me. I have to completely reinterpret the 1.5 hours of my life that left me scarred and deformed.

Hope everyone is having a Happy Holiday season. Just want to hop on and show off one of my presents, The Art of Star Wars The Mandalorian. I absolutely love it! This is a very large, thick book. There are lots of full page concept art pics, but also many smaller ones with behind the scenes info. I especially love seeing things that didn’t make it into the show, at least not yet. I’m just getting started going through it, but wanted to share. I highly recommend this for anyone who is a fan of the show, or Star Wars in general.

I completely forgot about the new 1 hour Disney Gallery special for season 2 and just randomly came across this in my YT recommendations. This is not from the official channel and is just a collection of Ahsoka related clips.

It’s interesting that the Disney Gallery special had no clips of Mark Hamill or anything related to Luke’s appearance, so it seems that they really did everything they could to avoid any leaks for the finale. Makes me wonder if they did something similar to ESB were the script that most people got had a different scene, and I’m guessing that they had a very small crew shooting that scene. They might not even have had the entire cast, so it wouldn’t surprise me if some of the actors didn’t even know who they were supposed to react to.

I’m wondering if the pandemic affected the documentary. I really liked everyone sitting around the table last season.

Possibly, but they might just have felt that it wasn’t necessary for this 1 hour format. Since season 1 was so groundbreaking it made sense to make multiple episodes and have a “roundtable discussion” with the creators and cast discussing everything in detail. I obviously wouldn’t have complained about getting more, but I thought it was a nice and succinct summary of season 2 that covered all of the most important points. That is other than the exclusion of the Luke scene, but that was most likely to avoid leaks.

Was the ESB ‘Boba Fett’s Departure’ theme really used in Chapter 14 or is that something a bunch of music editors have done themselves?

I saw an edit of that, I don’t think it was used in the episode itself. After Chapter 9 I was hoping Boba Fett’s TESB theme would be used, but retrospectively seeing as he was a protagonist instead of antagonist it was far better for Ludwig Göransson to compose a new one.

The process of Rosario evolving into Ahsoka are gone by steps:

  1. Rosario puts her hair up and puts the wig cap on but her ponytail is not covered.
  2. The artists apply white latex under Rosario’s eyes.
  3. The artists then put the white dome to cover Rosario’s ponytail.
  4. Brian then applies the rubbery piece onto her eyebrows and hair strands.
  5. Rosario’s face and neck are then painted orange.
  6. The buds are then placed into her ears.
  7. The artists place the plastic mask ontoRosario’s face so that the white tatoos can be airbrushed.
  8. The plastic mask is removed and the headpiece is then placed onto Rosario’s head.
  9. Her arms, hands, and rear were then painted orange.
  10. Rosario then puts on the blue contact lenses and her evolution is finished.

I just watched the Making of Season 2 doc, it was a real treat. It’s especially lovely to see how the visual effects have improved - creating backgrounds for the Volume out of hand-crafted model sets is particularly exciting - and also just how collaborative it is, with the director of any particular episode AND Dave AND Jon deciding things as a team. It’s not just a job, they genuinely enjoy their work and care deeply about getting it spot-on.

I see there was a scene shot of Mando, Boba and Fennec arriving on Nevarro and being met by Carl Weathers, for chapter 14. I think it’s better having been cut, but I’d love to see that released someday.

Just a question:
Why was Luke showing up such a surprise to everyone?
As soon as Din took the mission to bring Grogu to a Jedi, I knew it had to be Luke.
I don’t watch the other shows or whatever, so I’m not familiar with those characters who may be around in this timeline, but at the end of RotJ, Luke is the Jedi who’s around. So, it seemed to me we were leading up to him the whole season.
I’ve seen some reviews say that “it felt like it came out of nowhere.” I very much disagree with that.
I wish it had been done better, but that’s another topic…

I knew it would logically be Luke as well; many people debated if it would be him, Ezra Bridger or Cal Kestis, but Ezra Bridger is off in the unknown regions somwhere and will hopefully be involved in his own show at some point, while Cal - to maintain the significance of Luke’s journey in the OT - I personally hope meets a tragic end sometime before the events of the original film. Even though I was fully expecting it, as were many others, I think watching the episode there was somehow a shock that… they ACTUALLY did it.

This feeling usually accompanies any big character appearance in Star Wars. We knew that was going to happen… but wow, it actually did. It’s strange.

Oh, I get the excitement. “Here he comes!” “They did it!” ect.
But I’m reading reviews that seem to think Luke came outta nowhere & was out of place.
That’s what I don’t understand. I don’t think it was overly telegraphed that it’d be Luke, but if you know the OT, it’s just the logical conclusion. It’s organic to the world at this point in the timeline.

I think reactions like that come from people who still aren’t even sure when the show is actually set.

He comes out of nowhere in the sense that he takes away all agency from the heroes. Replace him with another character that is alive in the current canon and it doesn’t work despite being exactly the same scenario.

Have you ever read the process of Rosario turning into Ahsoka Tano?
