Judging by some of the leaked footage, it seems like Werner Herzog is going to have a bigger role than previously implied/assumed. He’s apparently a leader, or at least a member of, an Imperial Remnant group with the goal of restoring the “natural order” of things, including the role of the Mandalorians. This could of course end up as being the plot of just one episode, but either way, I’m really excited about seeing the Imperial Remnant in canon as the post-ROTJ era was always my favourite part of Legends.

I also really liked the music that we’ve heard so far. It has a clear spagetthi-western vibe to it, but without sounding derivative or cliched, and with more of a South-American feel to it.

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 just watched a couple of interviews with Gina Carano and I gotta say… I’m so excited for her. She is radiating with such an honest, grateful vibe (also damn gorgeous!). She admitted that she’s a total newbie when it comes to all the lore etc, but she was enthusiastic to absorb all the information Filoni and Favreau provided her. I know she hasn’t been the best actress around (she’s an ex-fighter after all) but if you need a female who you can believe to kick some ass, Gina Carano is the one to hire. Hopefully this will be her best performance so far.

This looks amazing! Loved seeing the dusty Jawas! Really drives home the fact that pretty much every aspect of this show is “original trilogy but gritty.” Can’t wait!

Also, Pascal seems to be doing great in the lead role, based on the one scene we’ve seen so far. He delivered the line “I like those odds” perfectly.

Hopefully they’ll release a proper trailer soon. I find it strange that the trailer, sizzle reel, etc. have only been shown at Star Wars Celebration. The response was very positive, both by those at Celebration and those who’s seen the unofficial footage on YT, so I’m wondering why they haven’t officially made it public yet. You’d think they’d market this a lot more as its one of the Disney+ launch series. I don’t think most casual fans even know it exists.

I really hope the lack of marketing isn’t intentional on Disney’s part, but there’s something in the back of my mind telling me that it’s a possibility. Maybe they’re concerned about it being a flop, so they’re opting not to draw attention to it. I really hope I’m wrong… it looks pretty promising from what I’ve managed to see. Another thing to think about is that it may end up being a departure from the other recently produced Star Wars stuff in terms of maturity, which might be reason for them to shy away from putting it out there so to say. Only time will tell…

I think they’re simply letting Galaxy’s Edge have it’s time in the limelight. If they’re nervous about anything it’s putting out too much Star Wars hype at once.

I’m sure there will be a HUGE amount of marketing and hype for Disney+ and naturally for The Mandalorian since it’s available day one.

I think Disney+ will be a bigger game changer than anyone realizes.
