The Mandalorian is Only Two Weeks Away!

The first episode, at least. The Mandalorian is a pretty exciting incentive to purchase the Disney+ streaming program. My family and I are going to get a subscription and have a whole host of shows and movies to watch!

And with the Marvel shows a year away, The Mandalorian is probably my most anticipated watch!

Looks cool! The main character seems badass, his team seems cool and Werner Herzog seems a good choice for moody narrator. And holy cow, those production qualities! Is all of that real? Finally, Disney is doing something really good with all of their money. You want to get people to sign onto your streaming service? Spend millions to make the most ambitious television show of all time!

The Mandalorian and Disney+ arrive on Nov. 12. Remind me to call my brother to get the log in details.

New Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Trailer Sure is Something!

The newest and possibly last trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker arrived last night and it sure is something! It’s chock full of Star Wars stuff and peeks at characters we knew were going to be in the movie.

I’m sure the movie will be fine. I liked The Last Jedi just fine, and I’m largely interested in these characters. I hope it ends well. I hope there are exciting lightsaber moments.

I dunno. I’m not particularly excited and I’m not particularly worried that it’s going to suck. It’s just going to be another Star Wars movie, and that will be that.

The Rise of Skywalker comes out on Dec. 20!

The Last of Us II Joins Next Year’s Amazing Video Game Lineup

Next year is going to be crazy good for video games. I am most looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077, which will hopefully be amazing. But we’re also getting that Avengers game, Watch Dogs: Legion, a new Vampire: The Masquerade and so much more!

Now we can add The Last of Us II to the list. It’s coming out on Feb. 21.

I didn’t get to play the original Last of Us until I finally splurged on a Playstation 4 last year. I enjoyed the game, but I wasn’t as blown away as everyone else seems to be. I think too much time had passed and too much of the game had infused into the world of video gaming. But it’s still a great story, and I’m excited for a sequel!

I especially enjoy the fact that the protagonist of The Last of Us II is a queer woman. You don’t see that very often, even in 2019.

Heck, the protagonist of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is yet another white male, who I assume is going to be straight.

As much as I love Star Wars, I’m not particularly excited for Fallen Order. Every trailer I’ve seen paints the game as really on rails. The game seems to control what you do, where you go, who you fight, how you fight them; I’m a more open world sort of guy.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes out this year, on Nov. 15.

6 Things I Want to See in All These Fancy New Star Wars Shows

I am just the sort of geek who is thrilled to the gills about all of the Marvel and Star Wars projects announced at the D23 Disney convention this past weekend. It might be shallow of me to gobble up all of this spoon-fed, nostalgia-based programming, but I do not care. Give me a Ms. Marvel TV show! Give me an Obi-Wan Kenobi show!

SWars Live Action List 01

Hello, how are you?

I also loved the first trailer for The Mandalorian. I can’t wait to sign up for Disney+ streaming on launch day so I can watch all this great new content coming over the next few years. In terms of Star Wars, we’ve got The Mandalorian, we’ve got a Cassian Andor show, and we have Ewan McGregor returning for an Obi-Wan Kenobi show! No doubt there are even more live action Star Wars shows in the pipeline. I did a List of Six a long time ago of possible live action shows, and today’s list is going to be specific Star Warsy things I want to see show up on these live action shows!

Join me after the jump for what particularly dorky Star Wars things I want to see happen in live action. And feel free to share your own in the comments!

The Mandalorian Looks Pretty Sweet!

The first trailer for The Mandalorian — the first ever live action Star Wars TV show — was  unveiled the other night at the D23 Disney convention. It looks pretty darn sweet!

I’m excited for this show. I’m excited for most things Star Wars. I am that exact sort of fanboy who is going to gobble up any and all of this nostalgia-driven new material. Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show with Ewan MacGregor returning to the role? Hell to the yes!

Dusty, badass TV show about a lone bounty hunter dressed in Mandalorian armor? You’re goddamned right I’m getting Disney+!
