I've always said it like "tran-dough-shen." Actually, has the name ever been said aloud in any official media? It had to be said at least once in Republic Commando but I can't remember how they pronounced it.

I'm about 90% sure that it was pronounced the way you just wrote it there. but they didn't emphasize the first and last syllables so it ended up being closer to "tren-dough-shen" rather than "tran-dough-shan"

My only experience with the term was in republic commando which was my first PC FPS and I played it probably 10 times over. Didn't realize Bosk was one of them until this thread.

I looked at the still image and thought "Trandoshan". Until this thread, I'd never noticed that the Bossk suit has long arms to cover up the actor's hands, as I've never really looked at the extras (which is what all those bounty hunters are except Boba Fett) in that scene.

Personally, I've always put the emphasis on the first syllable, although I think I've heard it somewhere official done the other way.

Good trailer. I would have preferred if they kept him as a silent protagonist though for the whole trailer (but definitely not the actual series) instead of the single line at the end. YMMV.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Well, you better hope it's good and that the shows keep being good, because the chances of the films being turned around has nosedived; Benioff & Weiss are out, citing the time commitment to their Netflix deal(the movie industry equivalent of "spending more time with their family"). While there's still nothing official about it, the fact Captain Subversion hasn't been publicly defenestrated yet while B&W have makes me worry Kennedy actually is intent on doubling down on him.

Man, I really hoped that Feige coming on board meant the current crop of brain-geniuses and their hirelings were getting sidelined.

Honestly I saw some things in that trailer I did not like. Noticeably 1:30 which is the marvel over the top iron man type action stuff that has become more common in recent star wars media. I like the OT for its restraint. A lot of folks would write that up as to them being limited by technology and budget. But for me the more grounded and weighted action feels better.

Also not sure I like how cold, digitial and CGI it feels. I still like some film grain and warm to star wars. A lot of this looks like cosplay or somehow fan made like it's less cinematic and I feel like it has to do with how it was shot with the lighting and sets. The way the outfits look on the characters in front of the backdrops. What it almost reminds me of is the hobbit movies that were at 48 fps.

I feel like they need an auteur and not some marvel hacks to make a star wars film, free of everything else that came before it. Kind of like how star wars knights of the old republic felt like star wars...but felt older somehow, technology wise. It had it's own separate feeling and style. I could see any potential directors being put off by the kind of control disney would have over their creative freedom. I know I wouldn't want to be leered over like that when i'm trying to work.

Hah. And it's a Firestick Peperami-hot take given that the "Marvel hacks" have been broadly producing solid, audience-pleasing fare while the attempt to involve an "auteur" in Star Wars and give them a lot of creative control led to a film that could charitably be described as "divisive".

Everything in the trailer looks pretty damn cool to me. It'll be interesting to see what other characters will feature alongside him. Does the woman end up being a partner in crime? I thought she was cool as her character in Deadpool, and Star Wars armor and a repeating blaster will make that even better.

I just find the idea that someone could call Taika Waititi, an obscure indie director who has made some very funny and interesting films, and who is both in and directing episodes of The Mandalorian, could ever be described as a 'hack'.

Still looking good, and seems like a SW animation series in spirit just with live action. I suppose we'll all be cashing in our pensions by the time the first season is on DVD...

...speaking of which, I saw the first episode of Resistance and rather enjoyed it, but wondered what the rest of the series was like?

So looking forward to this.

As said before, disappointed the UK has to wait, but in theory that means I may be spared an episodic release, and can just blag a day off to binge the whole thing!

In a profile of the streaming service, The New York Times revealed that a “dramatic Star Wars-universe spoiler” will happen in the series opener:

“The Mandalorian, which contains a dramatic Star Wars-universe spoiler in the first episode and will be available the moment Disney Plus starts, has been as heavily promoted as a traditional feature film, with billboards, 30-second television commercials, radio spots, and digital ads.”

● Maybe that might explain the next news, then: in order to keep “any surprises and plot twists” from being spoiled, advance screeners will not be made available before the series premiere. Translation? Sites like Bleeding Cool won’t be able to give you a “yay” or “nay” about the series until it drops – which we’re guessing is also a pretty good way to avoid any potential pre-premiere critical reviews that could hurt launch day traction.

Asking for a friend…

We also have some new character profile key art for the series:

I swear this was talked about earlier so when I stumbled across this on YT it seemed fitting to share.

tl;dr Jango/Boba in the EU were Mandalorians but according to George Lucas in canon they are not.

Indeed not.

If memory serves, Jango merely grew up on Concord Dawn, a Mandalorian planet. But he was an orphan or something, and not actually Mandalorian by birth nor blood.

So I am undoubtedly going to like this show as Boba Fett was always my favorite growing up, and this new character is basically Boba2.0.

But the adult in me still can't get past the fact that he's basically Boba2.0. Like, WHY?
Why not just make him Boba Fett that survived the Sarlacc?
Or make him a different character that ISN'T just a reskinned Fett, even down to the pronged rifle from Boba's debut in the SW Xmas special?

I'm sure they will do a good job with the story, but in the back of my mind, there will always be those questions distracting me for what otherwise could be a cool experience

They want to capitalize on the popularity of Fett without having all the baggage of actually using Fett. Wise approach in my opinion, as it does open up their story options while still interesting anyone that was into the original Fett.

I don't disagree, I just don't think Boba Fett has "baggage" that can't really be swept under.
IMO, the only "legit" reason not to have is be Fett is that you'd have to always keep his helmet on and not have him speak much if you can't get the Jango Fett actor involved.
I guess it also opens him up to not be that age, but I can't help but think of this new character as a cheap imitation of Fett, which is sad because he's shaping up to be 10X better than actual Fett
