Princeps of the Emperor's Titan!






Well, this is pants wettingly exciting!

Reputed to be costing £10,000,000 per episode, John Favreau’s forthcoming series has set pics!

See Them here.

DenofGeek has reason to believe shooting begins next week, so hopefully we’ll get more concrete info soon.

Plotwise, set 3 years after Jedi, and will focus on post-Empire Mandalore. Which sounds intriguing to me.

To me this would be an ideal way to build leaders into a future film. One issue of having key bits of story in animations or books is that only a smaller portion of the market becomes aware of them because of the different medium so can miss out in things that add up to core parts of future films.

A live action series also gives more time to develop plot lines - one thing I felt with the last film was that they ran out of space to take the multiple plot lines that they wanted to have to full maturity. So it might work better with their current view and focus.


Also £10million per episode sounds all kinds of nuts! Then again if they've got major actors and sets and CGI the numbers could indeed add up. That and my 5 mins googling seems to suggest that's the going rate for a big budget, high standards TV series (Game of thrones apparently breaches 15 million per episode in the last series.

It’s likely a high FX budget.

Because this isn’t just a SciFi show. It’s Star Wars. A franchise which revolutionised that industry. Us Nerds have come to associate a certain level there.

Apparently, Pedro Pascal May be the series lead?

Given GoT is now done, barring release, wonder how many another alumni may be being lined up?

I’d love to see Rory McCann in it. He’s always good value.

As opposed to fanwanking Jedi and Sith? I mean everything can be accused of Fanwank. And frankly the Mandos have been one of the better parts of the Disney Canon.

Right now no idea, and no idea as for actors and writers. Rumor has it Pedro Pascal.

On moon miranda.

We'll see how it turns out, I hope it's cool.

Unfortunately after Force Awakens and Last Jedi, I just can't bring myself to muster anything more than resigned "meh" however, I just don't much interest in the franchise anymore.

If it's good, maybe that'll change.

So confirmation of what was rumored. Since the Last Jedi I've been trying to focus on what I enjoy in SW as opposed to getting to pissed off about how dreadful it was.

Looking forward to "The Mandalorian" the post OT time period should be interesting to follow.

Not really. There are a lot of aspects of SW universe that can be explored.
A warrior cult that exists because fans built up a background character with a literal handful of lines and who died as comic relief is pretty much the definitional example of fanwank.
Almost nothing compares, despite how often they get set up as disposable mooks but are still somehow 'legendary warriors' in the endless sprawl of SW video games and novels..

whilst I think the Mandalore thing has been done in CW and Rebels I guess something distinctly Star Wars is a required hook

Well, who knows?

From where Rebels left off, we may not see her. Though I suppose we might get voice recordings of her.

Hopefully we can get some cast info in the next few weeks.

Thinking about it, focussing on a Mandalorian makes a certain amount of sense.

They're renowned warriors, so seeing them kick bottom on the small screen whilst not getting shot themselves works.



Could be akin to Kung Fu? Wandering warrior just out and about exploring the Galaxy. And Mandalorians are less hackneyed to the casual fan than Jedi, which for the moment have been done to death.

I really hope this shows us new locales each season. That's something I've always enjoyed about Star Wars, particularly Clone Wars.

It's wierd because there's a few different flavours of hate-on people have for mandalorians: there's those who hate the old Legends mandalorians for being massive Mary Sues, there's those who hate the Clone-Wars mandalorians for not being the exact same Mary Sues, it's a broad spectrum.

I'm somewhere in that first camp, but I do think it's a good idea for a perspective character if they're going for a 'space western' kind of vibe.

Yup. If they lean in to the "space western" angle, keep us moving around lots of interesting locales and cultures, and avoid too much shoehorned "setup" stuff for the Sequels, this has huge potential.

Ugh, the legends mandalorians had issues thanks to one specific author making them the king of kings, and the gods of gods. Think how people think Matt Ward did Ultramarines and you have a good example.

Not really all that different from the Jedi and Sith in the manner of fan build up and spank. We see in the films Jedi die in droves, at Geonosis, Order 66, them simply naming that Vader is the last one of a dead religion. People will always take what they like and blow it up, its how any fandom works.

Boba is set up as an "Elite, but ultimately disposable" mook, he's shown to be respected on some level by Vader, there is alot of implied badassery in his appearance just by how people respond to his presence. We see similar with Jango, who is shown to be able to hold his own against Obi-wan, kill another Jedi with ease and then lose to Windu because his Jetpack was broken. There is alot to see in just a little given. Of course people are gonna run with it. The extent an author ( and then a large number of the fans) take it is an extreme. If Storm Troopers are supposed to be good, and we only ever see them suck, but then we see these other guys doing obviously much better, how is that supposed to go in the minds of people?
