Re: The Mandalorian

Yeah the cast sounds really interesting.

I don't want a Boba Fett show. You're either telling a story about a guy we already know dies in ROTJ or you're retconning ROTJ (like the original EU did), which I'm not a fan of. Consider me resolutely in the "new characters, new stories" camp. I just want them to be good. I feel like it shouldn't be that hard. For me, the bar is lower when it comes to Star Wars content because I already love the universe and am ready to love new characters and stories within that universe. You don't have to make the next Breaking Bad or Fargo for me to watch it.

eh to each his own. although i am a massive star wars fan i am not just going to watch anything because it has the name 'star wars' attached.

i also don't think the universe is nearly as interesting or as ripe for exploration as a lot of the fans do. i need more than just new planets and new random alien species to get excited, i need great characters. i need something that looks like it was inspired.

the only reason this show is being made is because disney wants live action star wars content for their streaming service, not because it was some new and original story that was inspired and absolutely needed to be told. otherwise we wouldn't be getting a show about a clone boba fett.

Re: The Mandalorian

I'm fine them not making the show about Bobba Fett. What's the point in making a show or movie about a guy that we all know is going to get eaten by giant sand monster and be digested for over 1,000 years? He goes out like a loser as he like gets hit with a paddle or something and his jet pack explodes. That's the end of the story.

Re: The Mandalorian

I will like it if it’s good. That’s how I like most things.

The Mandalorian

With Pedro Pascal & Gina Carano
Quote:
It's set between the events of Jedi and TFA
O-oh

Just give me some Old Republic stuff or something. I'm so tired of Prequel/Original Trilogy/Sequel Star Wars

Re: The Mandalorian

Give me an Obi-Wan stand alone film with Ewan McGregor reprising his role, and I can die a happy man.

This what I want too, full on Jedi v Sith battles with both respective sides at the peak of their power or even Revan's story on the big screen?
I think Bioware kinda have this era on lock down though and some deal with them would likely need to be struck in order to make the events of the 3 TOR games to become canon and events of this era to used in a movie/TV setting.

I respect your opinion and understand there are a lot of people who are very interested in that kind of stuff. However, I am more appealed by the other side of Star Wars than by the Force, Jedi/Sith, etc. Give me stormtroopers, star destroyers, TIEs, scoundrels, bounty hunters and blasters of all sizes. I get for most people the Force stuff is what makes Star Wars unique, but there are way more interesting things to me in the Star Wars universe than the 'supernatural' elements. In fact the cancellation of 1313 was a huge blow; you jedi lovers already have tons of video games! -_-

You're talking like stormtroopers, star destroyers, TIEs, scoundrels, bounty hunters and blasters of all sizes are only in the movies?
