The Mandalorian Teaser Trailer

I'm seriously considering getting Disney+ just for this series alone. Bonus of course will be all the MCU Series on the way as well. But this one in particular is what's going to sell me on getting this streaming service. Tell me you're not pumped for this? I had no idea that Giancarlo Esposito and Carl Weathers were attached to this.

And here's the Sneak Peek for Episode 1. I fully expect these vids to get pulled from YouTube sooner, rather than later. Watch while you can.

I'm torn.  On the one hand, it LOOKS pretty cool.  Insofar as it looks like a movie.

However, two things stick out at me that aren't problems... but they kinda rub me the wrong way.  First, the ship looks like the Serenity.  It just looks like any other spaceship.  There's nothing terribly iconic or interesting about it.  It also reminds me of the one from Killjoys.  Two: the line of Crabonite-frozen prisoners.  Yeah, it's a good shot, but that was only ever used once.  It was kind of an odd thing to do at the time, there was no guarantee that Han would survive, and it just happened to be a thing they could do at the location they were at.  This is like... it doesn't gel with me.  It feels more like "here's more of what worked before," which isn't really gripping to me.

ok cool.  I should  get notifications for this thread now!

I KNEW this would happen.  I'd told myself I'd not be getting the Disney channel pay thing (aka Disney Netflix) but also knew...Disney is going to basically destroy Netflix with shows I'd want to see (more) so unless they join forces.

When Disney launches...Netflix will crash and burn.

hahaha

this trailer is really great.  a few small cheesy special effects that don't blend in well...but overall it looks amazing~ !

With the amount of content we will be getting with Star Wars and the MCU spin-offs, I'm surprised that Netflix is still even a thing right now. No one will still be a customer of theirs once Disney+ goes live.

So, I finally just now finished watching the First Season of The Mandalorian and I am very happy with what we got. Love the way the series is being presented. It feels more like the original Star Wars Trilogy than anything that has came after (Prequel Trilogy, Force Awakens Trilogy). The cast is fantastic from Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers make this enjoyable to watching. Unlike other series that I jump into, I actually didn't binge watch this and it was by design that I didn't....or even want to. I wanted to make it last as long as possible. It gave me something to look forward to from week to week and I'm glad I went that route.

So, about Baby Yoda/The Child. This was a big surprise to me when the kid revealed himself to be the main plot of the entire series. It certainly threw me off as I had kind of written my own version of what the series would be. I was way off. I prefer what this series is turning out to be. Personally, I rather get more Star Wars TV Series every year instead of bloated Star Wars films that have lost its way over the years. At least here you get some characterizations instead of a big spectacle that is all eye candy. Not to worry, there is eye candy here too.....but with some meat on them bones. Can't wait for Season 2. My only complaint about Season 1 is that it's only 8 episodes. Really hoping we can get something along the lines of 10-13 Episodes per season moving forward. I give this season 4 1/2 Stars out 5.

PS

The other big shock for me was seeing Giancarlo Esposito's character wielding the Dark Saber. Also another thing I didn't see coming. Wasn't expecting Moff Gideon to even be anywhere near a Dark Saber.

I really loved it too.  I've watched each episode about 3 times.  But I'm taking a break now to let it all soak in.  I liked the episodic nature of the show also.  It worked well and didnt feel rushed.  I'll take this series style anytime when its done this well.  Hats off to John Favreau for kicking so much ass on this.  His direction and vision worked very well!
