Star Wars : The Mandalorian

The show is part of the Disney+ streaming service. New episodes stream weekly

tenor.gif

The story takes palce 5 years after Return of The Jedi, It follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter.

Where do i start?

So i watched episode 1 & 2

What i didnt like :

There is no familiar star wars theme music.

The CGI looked a little clucky on a few parts. Its like they zoomed out far so you cant see much detail, but i get it, im being picky lol

What was pretty cool :

A toon of familiar creatures

The Bounty Droid IG-11. We finally get to see one in action!

[edit] I Got to go, be back to post later

The Mandalorian is scheduled to premiere its first episode on November 12, 2019, on the streaming service Disney+, in the United States,[11] in 4K HDR.

The Mandalorian is an upcoming American space-opera web television series scheduled to premiere on Disney+ on November 12, 2019. Set in the Star Wars universe, the series will take place a few years after the events of Return of the Jedi and follows a lone Mandalorian gunfighter beyond the reaches of the New Republic.

Jon Favreau served as a writer, creator, and showrunner and will executive produce alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, and Werner Herzog star. There will be eight episodes in the first season.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian takes place a few years "after the fall of the Empire[a] and before the emergence of the First Order" and follows "a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic".

live-action Star Wars TV series entered production in early 2009, with over 50 scripts produced by 2012, but due to their complex content, they were deemed too expensive to produce.[12] Its title was to have been Star Wars: Underworld.[13] In January 2013, following the 2012 sale of Lucasfilm to The Walt Disney Company, then-president of the ABC television network Paul Lee spoke to the current status of the series commenting that "We'd love to do something with Lucasfilm, we're not sure what yet. We haven't even sat down with them. We're going to look at [the live-action series], we're going to look at all of them, and see what's right. We weren't able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed. It's definitely going to be part of the conversation."[14] In June 2014, more details regarding the series were revealed, including that Boba Fett would have appeared.

I thoght the first episode was a bit slow, The action picked up at the end.

It looks like episodes will bearly run 30/40 minutes long.

Its like they are trying to ballance it out story and action.

Theres a ton of familiar Star Wars universe creatures and new ones (new to my eyes)

We finally get to see The Bounty Droid IG-11 in action! That was pretty cool

The big reveal is what really pulled me in eek Then i wanted more lol

default

I wont spoil the ending, but it seems to be all over the net shrug


I enjoyed episode 2. We get to see more of some famillar species.
And there is another big releal eek eek



Im enjoying the show so far. It sucks its only 8 episodes. Id rather binge watch it all in 1 go.

I hear season 2 is already filming, but does that i have to wait another year to watch confused

That Bad Ass segment was pretty cool cool lol


I never really watched all the diffrent star wars animated series, so this fills that void for me.

Even if this Mandalorian is killed or diminishes, since there is a whole planet/country of Mandalorians, it could be cool to just pick up the story of another one or two for each season

I´m surprised that this Mandalorian is a bounty hunter, too. I thought Boba Fett is wearing a typical Mandalorian soldier outfit but I wasn´t aware that there are more Mandalorians who wear almost the exact same suit and have the same job.

Kinda takes away the mystique of Boba Fett.

But that probably had been demolished with the prequels anyway.

I'm in the UK so had to watch it via "other" means ... apparently there's some BS rule that streaming services have to have minimum 30% content made in that region in order to operate there, so 30% of content on Disney Plus needs to have been made in Europe before it can be launched there ... mad!

I thought the first three episodes were really good. Love the leaning towards slightly more practical effects and less reliance on CGI, gives it a flavour much closer to A New Hope. Some interesting casting choices to.

Story is intriguing though I can't help thinking the baby "Yoda" was knocked up to sell merchandise via the "awww so cute" factor.

It really misses John Williams on soundtrack duties to.

I think with SW fans it didn't effect Boba Fetts mystique.
People are huge fans of the Mando's

I don't know if him being a clone makes a difference from my understanding

he isn't a Mandalorian proper, because he was not raised on the homeworld or in the culture and taught directly the Mandalorian ways. He 'father' was killed before he wasn't able to give him much instruction. He was then taken under wing by a rouge bountry hunter who was trained as a Jedi but turned dark.

.

In Episode II, [Boba Fett] saw his father murdered by Mace Windu, however he's still got a long way to go before he becomes the battered bounty hunter we know so well. Aurra's an influence, and not much of a nurturing parental figure – so that plays a part, as well. She preys on his weakness, on his desire for a family. It's pretty dysfunctional, and it sheds an interesting light on both Aurra and Boba. Ultimately, though, Boba's always been a mystery. As much as we reveal, we're not going to take the mystery away from his fans. Not knowing all the answers about Boba is part of what makes him so cool.

According to one of the cartoons (Clone Wars I think) Jango was not a Mandalorian.

I think it is supposed to be put to rest at some convention

There was a video game Star Wars 1313 that was to include an 'Art of...' book and a novel that told more of Boba Fetts dark days

https://screenrant.com/st...ndalorian/

To some, this will seem like an unnecessary line of dialogue--basically throwing out Jango Fett's entire expanded universe history. But in the show's defense, it was George Lucas himself who first made the call to do exactly that. The longtime Clone Wars director Dave Filoni made no secret of the fact that George Lucas informed him the Fetts were not Mandalorian, no matter what stories the expanded Star Wars universe had come up with. So as disappointing as it may be to accept, this Clone Wars confirmation that Jango Fett only looks like a Mandalorian is hard to dispute (without disputing Lucas personally... and he did invent the entire thing).

There is room for fan theories to spin an explanation for Jango Fett being dismissed by Mandalore. The Clone Wars may have introduced the fact from George Lucas' direct input, but with his leading role in the Star Wars lore no longer a given, the reason for Jango's exclusion can be revealed at a later date. The same goes for how he came to own his Mandalorian uniform, if he didn't acquire it through traditional rite of passage. And while we're at it: no, Boba Fett's armor isn't Jango Fett's either.

On the one hand, Jango being a true Mandalorian wouldn't actually make Boba one by default. In the version of Mandalore explored in the now-Legends comics, novels, and video games, the culture wasn't like most in the Star Wars galaxy (or our own). If a man, woman, or any other being wanted to become a Mandalorian, they could--no matter what family, planet, or species they came from. So the explanation for Boba Fett not being Mandalorian is even simpler, because... he never became one.

Interesting.

But.....regardless of what that guy says, the prequels DID destroy a lot of the mystery that surrounded the good ol´ Boba Fett from The Empire Strikes Back.

.

Can you believe that at some early stage he was supposed to be Darth Vader´s brother ? Sometimes it boggles the mind how many times Lucas changed his initial storyline.

It does sound stupid and very unrealistic.

How do they eat ? Sleep? Kiss?

I understand that this is meant as not taking your helmet off in front of strangers, but still.....

It does sound a bit unhealthy, too. wink

Then again, we almost never get to see any stormtroopers without helmet, so there´s that.

This stood out so much to me, I didn't realize how important his music was to the franchise.

Not sure I like the Jawas being turned in Minions.

John Favreau is writing and producing? Not sure where my distaste for this guy comes from but it's strong. Maybe it's every role he's ever played or interview I've ever seen...

The first three episodes have been entertaining and I'm curious to see where they take it.

Sabine on Rebels is a Mandalorian and her helmet was off all the time.

All the other Mandalorians on Rebels and The Clone Wars also takes their helmet off.

I think this helmet thing is new in this show.

Fisnished it so it follows the same basic pattern... he meets someone... there is some tension and they work it out and he relies on some else for help... this ep seemed slower that the others... but it had a decent ending.

And they answered some of our questions above...

but How the Sith do those trackers work? I just do not buy it... Sorry... not at all.

yeah I guess the mystery cannot remain that way forever.
I think Master Yoda is the only one still with mystery.

And a lot of mystery in Empire still.

Yeah I remember that. Well I guess in trying to work out possibilities and what could be, you go through those things to get to a finished ideal.

The original Boba Fett character was loosely based on Clint Eastwood´s acting and mannerism in The Good, the Bad, the Ugly and fans loved that mysterious bounty hunter but these days , that whole Boba Fett/Jango Fett/Mandalorian mysterious aura seems to disappear slowly but surely.

Then again, at least they brought back that wild west vibe that the original Boba had.
