Where ever the Emperor needs his eyes

Depending on the article you read, Pedro Pascal has either been officially cast as the lead in Star Wars: The Mandalorian or is in negotiations.

Pedro Pascal confirmed for the lead in the Mandalorian, Gina Carano also cast in an as yet unnamed role, Carl Weathers rumoured to be in negotiations.

I'm always surprised that Gina Carano is not in more stuff. She's probably never going to win an Oscar, but Haywire was a solid action flick debut.

Hopefully the Mandolorian doesn't gloat for too long during fights. Bummer of a way to die, that is.

His story was neatly summed up. Scarred intelligence vet, has blood on his hands, doesn't necessarily like it, died a hero. Yeah feels kind of complete to me.

How bout a Lando TV series with Glover? I'd give that a shot. Give the guy some right direction and I think he could carry it.


I would definitely like to see a Lando spinoff of some kind. Be it TV, Movies or whatever. Hell, I wouldn't mind a Solo television series that starts where the film left off and shows his pre episode 4 adventures and maybe all his journeys between the episode 6-7 gap if possible. Same with Boba Fett to be honest, but they scrapped that for now. Though it would be cool if Solo became the unofficial pilot for a Han Solo centric tv show.

Or go way backwards.

I'd watch Young Yoda, or even a stories about the Republic at the height of it's prosperity 500 or so years BBY.


I would definitely like to see a Yoda movie/tv show as well. Especially if it can give us plenty of lore about the Jedi and/or politics of the Old Republic during his young adult years. Especially if we can finally get a tangible name for Yoda's alien species. Here's how I would go about introducing TV shows if I were Disney.

1. Solo: A Star Wars Story begets Solo: The TV Series
2. Fett: A Star Wars Story begets Fett: The TV Series
3. Lando: A Star Wars Story begets Lando: The TV Series
4. Yoda: A Star Wars Story begets Yoda: The TV Series

Have certain character centric film spinoffs serve as quasi-pilots for TV shows. I personally wouldn't mind a "Rogue Two" of sorts so that we can finally see the Bothans on screen. But the thing is, will they keep the same appearance they had in legends or will they alter their appearance because reasons? (Somewhat unrelated tangent, but I'm kind of salty that Ventress's species was retconed from Ratataki to Dathomirian, which I wish was a Zabrak/Ratataki hybrid species instead of a Zebrak/Human hybrid.)

No, but it's a little silly to pretend that everyone is as incompetent a story teller as Lucas and would fail just as badly.


To be fair, after what Disney did to finish the Luke/Leia/Han story one has to wonder if they're the right people to do much of anything in the SWU.


I'm still salty that the New Republic got curb-stomped straight from the get go. Hopefully they (along with other interstellar governments) show up in the final movie of the sequel trilogy, somehow.

AegisGrimm wrote:Disney needs to cut their ties to the Original Trilogy, although the majority of their material being set during the Galactic Civil War shows they know that the setting of the current trilogy is crap, and they are only making money off the inertia of the Original Trilogy.

Make a series or trilogy set during the Old Republic/Sith war. Have absolutely no ties to the OT characters, and make good characters who don't need to ride their coattails to be any good, set in an awesome action packed setting, not a lazy retread of the OT. Awesome stuff like the Bioware trailers, and make it go in new directions.




Agreed, a series of films/television shows adapting the events of KOTOR 1, KOTOR 2 and SWTOR would be pretty cool.

Mad Doc Grotsnik wrote:Teeny update.

Taika Waititi and Carl Weathers both apparently up for roles in the show.

Whether one-offs, cameos, permanent or recurring, who knows!


I thought Waititi was just gonna write an episode or two of the Mandalorian. Though if that's the case, I could see him writing a comedic episode for whatever character he's playing.

He doesn't really look like Temuera Morrison, so if he gets the role, I'm assuming that rules out any theories that the titular Mandalorian is Boba Fett, right? Maybe not, who knows.

There are more mandalorians than the fett.
and from what I've read, the titular mandalorian isn't meant to be the fett at all. Just ANOTHER one of his people.

Jango claims to have been born on Concord Dawn making him a Mandalorian but during the Clone Wars series Almec disputes this claim whether it’s true or not or it was meant to discredit/disavow Jango is open for debate as I don’t think it’s been addressed further.

I certainly hope that Jango (and by extension Boba) is a legit Mandalorian that was besmirched by the pacifist movement.

Don't really like that retcon all that much, nor the one where Asajj Ventress was changed from a Rattataki. The least they could've done was make the Dathomirian species a hybrid race of male Zabrak and female Rattataki instead of going the Zabrak/Human route.

So Nick Nolte's character is an Ugnaught he's just the voice and some motion capture for an animatronic worn by another actor.

Nolte’s character will not be digital. It doesn’t appear Nolte is performing the role on set either. Instead a new practical animatronic mask has been developed that works on voice command. So the mask which is being worn by a small woman matches Nolte’s infliction perfectly. The mask’s mouth movement is said to be phenomenal. MSW sources also have said that the mask was developed by Stan Winston’s shop of experts.


Interesting that they are using animatronics over CGI probably easier and cheaper for TV.

Some of the original trilogy bounty hunters are in.

Not sure whats spoilerish for people so spoilered for now

Spoiler:
IG-88 is confirmed to appear along with an as yet unnamed Trandoshan who's probably Bossk.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Interesting, I think that might be the first Ugnaught depicted anywhere to speak Basic then? In Rebels Hondo has to learn to speak their language, I always got the impression they had a similar thing going on to Wookies, ie learning to understand Basic is fine but speaking it was a no-go.

Apparently it's not unheard of but they tend not to learn basic as they don't like to interact with other species

Few Ugnaughts learned Basic, because they were not fond of prolonged contact with Humans or other species. Those who do, however, were quickly fluent in both Ugnaught language and Basic, being literate in both languages.

The series also makes claims that all Mandos that aren't Deathwatch are Pacifists, yet in Rebels when we meet Fenn Rau and the Protectors we're given the story of them fighting in the Clone Wars (for the Republic) and I believe its even mentioned that the Deathwatch and Pacifists were just the Vocal Minorities, with a large number of Mandalorian Sector persons continuing to live as they had.

Yeah, I mean the whole "New Mandalorian"/pacifist thing couldn't have been that well bedded-in, given it only takes a few attacks by criminals and a stirring speech by Visla to get a crowd that looks to number in the hundreds of thousands chanting "WAR!".

IG 88 is confirmed to appear (that was in my spoiler above) but that’s not IG-88 as he still has his bandolier. He is part of the Droid Gotra (clan) who will also appear so it’s likely that other similar droids will appear.

IG-88 is apparently affiliated with the group and we have seen evidence the droid appears in the series with other droids that have a bone to pick with their enemies.

IG-88 has recently been seen on set, filming his close-ups, and being the star that he is on the set of The Mandalorian. The old-time bounty hunter isn’t just standing around either–we’ve had credible reports about blasters being fired and he’s riding speeder bikes and attacking enemies.

I was concerned that perhaps it was just an IG Assassin Droid like we saw in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. But the droid is being referred to as IG-88 and appears to have the same bandolier.

They seem to be keeping things tightly under wraps during filming so little in the way of news but R5-D4 has a part in it - the Astromech droid from A New Hope that blows a motivator when Luke buys him from the Jawas

I really hope they dont do cameo and reference fest. Put in a character if they would be important to the plot. But its an entire galaxy of droids and people. Dont just parade around the same few dozen for people to point at.

Its always a danger for SW and something they have seemed to love doing in all the series, probably the least apparent in Resistance which is quite frankly, pants.

I just saw that Bossk is rumored to have an appearance in this, surely not? He must be really old (not that I have any idea of how long Trandoshans live but he was active in the clone wars).
