6 Things I Want to See in the Ahsoka Tano TV Show

I watched the very excellent Tales of the Jedi cartoon series on Disney+ this weekend and it was a hoot! Six short and very sweet episodes showing off key moments in the lives of Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku, the latter of whom received some real depth to his complex character. Great little show, and hopefully we get some more Jedi Tales going forward. And who doesn’t love some more Ahsoka Tano content?

Let there be show!

The next Star Wars show we’re getting, I think, will be the live action Ahsoka show starring Rosario Dawson. We know it’s going to feature Ezra Bridger from Rebels and Grand Admiral Thrawn. But what else are we going to get? Personally, I’m not all that interested in seeing the Ahsoka show focused too much on Ezra’s return. He was never my favorite character in Rebels. Though now that I think about it…was Ahsoka my favorite character in Rebels?! Yeah, probably. But she’s got a lot of material to draw from and plenty of stuff that could appear in her show!

6 Things I Want to See in Andor

The first three episodes of Andor arrived on Disney+ today and I can’t wait to watch! The trailers have looked very promising and I have high hopes, more so than most other Star Wars TV shows. I always found it strange that Cassian Andor should get his own TV show, but here we are and we can only hope for the best.

Rebellions are built on hope

I’m loving The Mandalorian as much as everybody else, and I can’t wait to watch Ahsoka. But The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi were both pretty mediocre. Will Andor be better? I love the tone we got in the trailers, of an actual hardcore, gritty war drama. Will the show live up to that tone? I surely hope so.

Join me after the jump for what I hope to get in the Andor TV show! And feel free to share your hopes, dreams and reviews of the first three episodes in the comments!

6 Jedi Who Could Use Some Tales

The new animated Star Wars show Tales of the Jedi was announced this past weekend at D23 and it looks promising. I’ve always wanted to see some of the adventures of the young Qui-Gon Jinn and Count Dooku. Because why not? Could be an interesting time period.

Baby Ahsoka merch incoming

And because I’m still sick at home with COVID, I wanted an easy List of Six. So here are some other Jedi who, I think, deserve some tales of their own. Let’s check out their younger years, see what they were up to. What kind of mischief did they engage in? What life-altering decisions were made? What galaxy-spanning mischief occurred? We’ll only know when they get around to these six Jedi!

All the Marvel and Star Wars Trailers from D23 in One Place!

This was a pretty fun weekend for Marvel and Star Wars reveals! Disney held their annual D23 event, which has become one of their chances to go hog wild with new trailers, shows and whatnot. We didn’t get a Fantastic Four cast reveal, but we got plenty of good news about upcoming stuff. And since trailers are easy to post on a weekend where I’m still recovering from a cold, let’s just go over the fun trailers!


Secret Invasion

This looks great! Samuel L. Jackson finally headlining his own Marvel project, and he gets to come in like a total badass and save the world from an invisible Skrull invasion. Cool premise, straight from the comics, and this trailer makes it look like a really awesome spy thriller. That’s perfect. One thing Marvel is definitely doing these days is trying out a bunch of different genres with their superhero umbrella. That’s great, and Secret Invasion looks to really amp up the cool spy stuff next year.


Werewolf by Night

Traditionally, comic book-wise, I don’t care about Werewolf by Night. He was before my time, and then being a simple werewolf, never captured my interest after that. But here we see that his Halloween special will be this awesome, black and white, classic grindhouse horror throwback! Brilliant idea, brilliant trailer; this one should be a done-in-one hoot in early October.


The Mandalorian

Season 3 of The Mandalorian will come out early next year, and of course I’m excited. Who wouldn’t be excited? This show has taken the world by storm, and it’s the one really good Star Wars property being made right now. Surely it’s gonna stay good. And it looks like The Mandalorian is about to encounter a bunch of Mandalorians. So that’s neat!


Andor

I think Andor is going to be really good. I think they’re going to lean hard into the grays of war and uprisings, and give us a really dark, hard look at what life would have been like in the early Rebellion. Should be a lot of fun, in that regard. Shows like Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Book of Boba Fett dealt a bit too heavily on specific storylines; I think this is going to be more open and more badass.


Tales of the Jedi

This one was a surprise, and a welcome one. A bunch of new Star Wars shorts that tell a parallel story between Anakin training Ahsoka and Dooku training Qui-Gon? Hells yes! I’ve wanted for years now to see a story set in Qui-Gon’s early years. Let’s see more familiar Jedi faces when they were younger, when the world was different. This one is coming in October and should also be a lot of fun.

The Andor TV Show Looks Really Great

I know the Star Wars TV shows haven’t been the be all end all that we’ve been hoping for. The Mandalorian has been great, obviously, but The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi were fine to meh. So it’s a real mixed bag. But the next show, Andor, looks freakin’ cool. We got a new, fuller trailer yesterday.

This looks gritty, this looks serious; this looks like a real, powerful take on the “Wars” part of Star Wars. This looks like a war show, only set in the Star Wars Universe. Is that a great use of the Cassian Andor character? Hells yeah! Is this going to turn out to be a lukewarm, fan servicey thing instead? Possibly! But based on the two trailers we’ve had, my hopes are pretty darn high for Andor.

Andor comes to Disney+ on Sept. 21.
