The Mandalorian - Star Wars Live action TV series

I’m willing to bet the huge reveal at the end of the first season will be that Boba Fett is still alive. Anyway, the “lone gunfighter” angle certainly makes me feel better about the idea of a Mando-centric series. I found Filoni’s Mandalorians so, so tiresome. Hopefully this series just has the one bouncing off of more interesting characters, rather than a bunch of them yammering on about honor and family ad infinitum.

Well it mentions the New Republic in this description, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we did learn little things about it or even encountered them occasionally in the show.

So it still won’t explain anything about the New Republic. Cool. I’m not mad. Why would you think that?

Were…you hoping for a series set in the New Republic Senate?

Help back OMNO!

I’m very much down for this. Little surprised that it seems to be honed in on a single character rather than an ensemble, which I assumed would be the case. I feel like that makes me more interested, but who knows, we’ll see.

Very Interesting.

Nice idea. Good thing to explore the post-ROTJ era. Only bad idea: Jon Favreau is involved 😕

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

Seems like cinematographer Greig Fraser may well be involved too…

Looking forward to watching this 😃
 


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

I was hoping something else than again more Mandalorians, it seems to be the go-to safe bet. But I hope the execution works. The story sounds interesting but it could have been anything else than “hey, remember the Fetts?”.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

It’s not at all surprising given Favreau’s connection to the Mandalorians. If they do this right, a lone gunman series could be fantastic.

Why is Favreau’s involvement a bad idea? So far I’ve liked the stuff he’s done.

On a related note I’ve noticed many have expressed their dislike for the Mandalorians over several threads, and the reason given is that it’s because they are a warrior culture and warrior cultures in fiction are boring. How are warrior cultures boring? They’re usually amongst the coolest things that pop up in fiction. I just don’t understand why people are so unenthusiastic about them.

Though I’m sure there’re exceptions, most tend to be rather one-note. They become tiresome after awhile.

Arrivederci.
