Called it!


They went on a binge announcing everything coming down the pipes.

  • Ahsoka - Set within the timeline of the Mandalorian
  • Rangers of the New Republic
  • Visions - anime style coming 2021
  • Willow - starring Warwick Davis coming in 2022
  • Andor - coming in 2022
  • The Bad Batch - looks like it is taking place in the time immediately after the rise of the Empire.
  • Hayden Christensen is returning as Vader in the Kenobi series

If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

Of all of that, I think Rogue Squadron and Lando sounds the most interesting to me.

And Willow!

Right, so season two of the Mandalorian is basically The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase.  :P  Or Iron Man 2 or Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Sacrificing the main story for the sake of spin-offs and future content.

YES, exactly, thank you!

I have the vague hope that now that all these announcements have been made they can get back to letting the Mandalorian star in his own show, but I'm doubtful. We'll see.

Well, "The Believer" was a breath of fresh air. Amazing how much better that show gets when they use actual character development and focus on the main character.

I hope this is a trend.

Well, damn! Whether you liked or disliked that ending, it sure as hell was *something*, wasn't it?

The CGI on his face was on the shoddy side, but I am not too proud to admit that I squee'd like a little girl when I saw the X-wing!

I have a feeling that the show is going to turn more towards helping Bo-Katan retake Mandalore. 

But that after-credit scene...

Probably done with the show, I think. Seeing Luke was fun, sure, but when I started this show I was in it to watch a space western about a bounty hunter and the show just is not that anymore. They're making it into just another Star Wars show, and there's a reason I haven't watched most Star Wars shows.

I totally understand that. I definitely do not want it to delve more into the Force and Jedi than this episode did. I guess the next season is going to go high-politics with Mandalore drama, which I'm not stoked about either, but I suppose there's no going back. At least the characters are enjoyable, and it's still fun as long as I don't think to much about what I'

I guess I can only hope they put in a couple of episodes where the titular bounty hunter actually does some bounty hunting.

My hope at this point is solidly pinned on the Lando show being good. I rather doubt it, though. Star Wars has squandered nearly every good thing they've gotten their hands on, and I shouldn't expect that will change.

My Fiancé and I just finished watching season 2 of Mandolorian. We really enjoyed it! Seeing Luke at the end was a real treat, and I liked that there was Boba Fett. The episode with the spider monsters was pretty cool too, It was great Seeing Oppa from 'Kim's Convenience' fly an X-Wing.

Never watched any of the other star wars shows, so I don't know who that Jedi lady was before she showed up in this show, but I look forward to more content.

Take the time and watch through Clone Wars and Rebels.  The short version is that she was Anakin's padawan, but the character developed into so much more than that.

Basically, she starts off as annoying as Jar Jar but evolves to the point that she’s more or less level with Anakin or Luke themselves.  An incredible character arc.
