I can't wait for Disney to announce I have my own Star Wars property. Everyone is getting a piece of the pie.

Wags, are you feeling there is going to be too much Star Wars? Maybe it's me with Marvel, I watch all the movies and at one point tried watching all the shows, but its impossible to keep up. Plus the shows never carry over to the movies.

I would say it's comparable to that. But as with Marvel, I don't make a point to keep up with everything Star Wars outside the main movies. There are lots of other books and the animated Star Wars show and I've never tried to get into those. I would watch this if I had easy access to it, but I don't think I would want to subscribe to something else just for this.

I have basically no opinion on this. Wags, should we be excited?

It sounds neat, but it also sounds like a new character we haven't seen before, so I can't really say.

Like I said earlier, I am interested in these Star Wars things, but I don't like that I have to have so many different subscription services to see them.

Is The Mandalorian a single person, like "The Gunslinger", or a collection of bounty hunters that wear the same outfit?

Mandalorians are people from the planet Mandalore known for being warriors and have that distinctive armor. I would imagine this particular show being "The" Mandalorian will focus on a single person rather than the group.

Just putting this here to watch later. Not related, just didn't want to make a new thread for it.

Lucasfilm confirms the Boba Fett Star Wars movie is 100% dead
I think we all kind of assumed this when we saw this TV show was coming out.

Good for him. He needs more leading man roles.

This confused me because the 2 people in that documentary were killed. Werner was the narrator. Funny this article credits him with something people people didn't watch and those that watch never saw him.
