The Mandalorian



Quote:
The synopsis for The Mandalorian talks about a lone gunfighter on the Outer Reaches of the galaxy away from the New Republic. Additionally, Jon Favreau has revealed this show will take place five years after Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, which is quite a ways away from The Force Awakens era. While it's not an impossibility to see characters from the new trilogy, it feels more likely older characters will make an appearance.

The synopsis also name-checked characters like Jango Fett and Boba Fett, and likened the gunfighter to a character similar in that regard because he's a warrior. This might be because all three characters are tied to Mandalore, which explains the title of the story well enough. Is this gunfighter directly related to Jango and Boba, or is the connection more based in the fact that most Mandalorians are warriors, mercenaries, or bounty hunters?

which is weird because i'm quite certain no less than 100% of the star wars fandom would rather this be a series about boba fett.

these execs overthink thing sometimes. this was a stupid idea. if you're gonna give us soulless fan service at least do it right.

no interest in this personally.

Re: The Mandalorian

Yeah sorry I didn't want to see a Boba Fett Series so it's not 100% at all. If anything people want to see a Obi-Wan Film or Series rather than Fett and that is truth. I'm glad were going into territory after Return of the Jedi where the world was still rebuilding after the fall of the Empire. I have all the faith in the world that is going to rock.

i didn't want a series about boba fett either, that's not what i'm saying.

i'm saying if given the choice between a series about boba fett and some cheap imitation copy, i'm sure most star wars fans would have been way more interested in the former.

Re: The Mandalorian

I don't believe that at all and I'm never going to send something down the River and call it cheap until I see the Show. Fans want to see something new, and going to Fett to me wouldn't of been interesting as this new world that is being created for us.

Re: The Mandalorian

I'd much rather see original stories in the SW universe than prequels/side stories about established characters actually. Some of my favorite SW stuff is when they make original characters, i.e Thrawn, Darth Bane, and the Knights of the Old Republic stuff.

Might give this a try. Kinda soured on Disney's non-main series stuff tho after Rogue One and what I've seen of Solo.

Re: The Mandalorian

So they give us a mandalorian series but no Boba Fett?

Has Disney started hiring retarded wwe writers?

Re: The Mandalorian

Or maybe they didn't want to be locked into fan's lofty Boba Fett expectations, lore and fandom? See what happened when they "butchered" the post Return saga, they don't want fans to be pissed that they changed this and that from the books, so they went all original with the characters and story.

New characters, new worlds, new stories. Why is everyone so pissy?

It's probably largely because Luke was so different in TLJ from the established decades long history of Star Wars. I didn't hate TLJ though so I'm not sure.

I'll always check out new Star Wars stuff, but if it's shit then I'm out. Shit = most of what Disney does for the record.


I gotta say this though

They have my interest with this cast. Also I think I remember them once saying that The Mandolorian will play kind of like a Western. Or maybe I dreamed this. But if it's the case I'm more interested.
