The Mandalorian looks like everything about SW that truly made me love it as a kid. Was never big on the Skywalker story, the Jedi/Sith, etc. It was the look and feel of the SW universe. The gritty, wild west nature of it. The Empire and the Rebels. Bounty Hunters, smugglers, criminal cartels. This looks amazing. Pedro was a fantastic choice.

Agree. To me the Skywalker's were a way to tell storirs about the universe, not the reason for telling those stories.

Never really cared for all of the family connections. Luke and Vader, fine that worked. Luke and Leia being twins was stupid that was compounded by having her be Vader's kid.

So here's something I got yesterday at a panel about the cantina scene. Apparently they filmed a much bloodier version of Ponda Baba's demise...



R-rated Star Wars, anyone?

At the airport, on the way home. Had a blast this entire weekend. Didn't sleep much so I'm looking forward to sleeping.

Got a good set of random pictures that I'll try to post on here tomorrow.

Ben should have learned to take a compliment. A nice architect compliments Luke's haircut and gets his arm cut off.

Actually it was announced three minutes ago.

This made me laugh. My kid is in first grade. He told me a buddy was asking him questions about Star Wars. Another kid, he claims the kid is a liar, says he knows everything about Star Wars. My son counters with this question, was Darth Tyranus ever on the light side?

What the hell? I've failed my son; his sex life is over before he even hits puberty.

I legit just laughed out loud. Don't worry, there are more and more nerd girls these days. Hot ones, too. He'll be alright.

I had to Google it after he told me that, and then remembered it was Dooku, I think... confusion AOTC storyline be damned.

More on the hiatus, NSIAP:
https://ew.com/movies/2019/04/13/lucasfilm-star-wars-movies-hiatus/

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealed that following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the Star Wars team including Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will map out the next decade of Star Wars stories.

Kennedy spoke with EW, where she confirmed Bob Iger's recent comments that Star Wars movie will take a hiatus following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, "We're going to take a hiatus for a couple of years."

She would go on to state that during the hiatus they plan to map out the next decade of storytelling, "And we're taking the time to really look at where this is going from the standpoint of a saga." She adds, "We're not just looking at what the next three movies might be, or talking about this in terms of a trilogy. We're looking at: What is the next decade of storytelling?"

Recent rumors suggested that Benioff and Weiss' Star Wars films could be set in The Old Republic, a popular time period in the Star Wars universe popularized by BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic game featuring iconic characters Darth Revan, Bastila Shan, and Darth Malak. The game would get a sequel in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. The time period would also receive its own MMO in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Kennedy hinted that the new stories might actually be taking place set in the distant past in the Star Wars universe, "Yes, absolutely. I think that that's absolutely on the horizon. We're looking at whether we can move massively in one direction of the other. It's still Star Wars, and holding on to the DNA of what George created is still very important to us." She would add, "I think this is a huge opportunity to step into the galaxy in a little bit different part of the timeline."

While Benioff, Weiss, and Rian might be central to the future of Star Wars, Kennedy did confirm they are looking for new talent

I feel like it's a trick question. Dooku became Tyranus, but as Tyranus he wasn't on the light side.

Save for the Johnson of it all, this is fantastic news. Not just the hiatus, which we already knew, but the fact that they're actually going to take a break to PLAN the story - or STORIES, rather - for the next decade, and that the Game of Thrones guys are going to be integral part of facilitating that plan. All in on this.

For those who give Johnson a pass due to TFA, remember he introduced flying Leia, crank call Poe, & teet milking Luke.

I actually think Johnson will be able to tell a pretty compelling story and come up with some good characters now that he's free to create from scratch. But yeah, his humor is TERRIBLE. Everything you mentioned, in addition to Luke tossing the lightsaber off the cliff and then brushing off his shoulder late in the movie... it wasn't all just bad, it was stuff that took me right out of the movie. Most of it felt so contemporary, in the worst way.

I am just tired of Star wars movies period.

They lost the thread and I still think it will be hard to fix with Ep IX.

if they are really doing the Old Republic, I would prefer that it was done as a TV series a la Game of Thrones. 13 episode seasons. $100/MM budget (cheaper than a movie.

Would be awesome.

Sure D&D do not want to dive into that again, but I can dream of such a thing.

Let me jump in here broseph.

Yeah, that's a tad on the side of nerdy but if I recall, Tryanus was Dooku right? If so, you're still in your lane cause that was in the movies and not all the books, EU, games, uber nerdy stuff. I think you're ok. Chalk it up to your kiddo having a big brain and absorbing info like a sponge.

To counter, back up your nerdiness with manly pursuits and actions and make sure he sees it. For example, I packed lunches this morning (which my wife loves so she can spend more time on hair and makeup and princess stuff). Right before she left to drop the boys at school on her way to work I kissed her on the neck and grabbed her ass, in front of the boys. This is important for their development. Even if they "geez dad come on" just roll with it.

The dark side, the light, the balance. All good.

This looks so ****ing badass. Like, proper bad ass.

I can't wait.

(Also, it's nice to see the awesomeness of that armor finally get justified.)

So stories set long, long ago could now be told longer, longer ago?

I wish they'd stop making movies, too. The SW story concluded nicely with ROTJ. You don't need anything else.

It's like how Breaking Bad ended great, but they keep watering down the legacy with endless Saul seasons.

But since they're going to make movies regardless, I want them to go far into the future. I do not want Old Republic movies. That territory has already been explored. I want something remarkable and new, set in the distant future of SW.

As much as I hated his movie, Rian Johnson seems like the only one at Disney who would have the guts to do something completely new.
