The new year is almost over, but one thing that is definitely over is the second season of The Mandalorian! And I loved it! But I’m probably not going to do any deeper dive on my thoughts or a review. It was all pretty great. So great, in fact, that I think you might enjoy some behind-the-scenes videos I stumbled across. I think these are taken from the official behind-the-scenes show on Disney+, but here they are on YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
Specifically, lets take some behind-the-scenes looks at Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett and Bo-Katan!
I would say those were pretty fun! I look forward to all of their spin-off shows, and the next season of The Mandalorian! But first we all have to survive 2021 somehow! Good luck to us all!
Merry Christmas week, everybody! This year we received the greatest present of all time: the announcement, at long last, of the Boba Fett TV series! A Boba Fett movie has been in the works for as long as Disney has owned Stat Wars. But after false starts and failed projects, we finally have the official announcement of The Book of Boba Fett for next December!
Once upon a time, I used to do Christmas-themed lists the week of Christmas. I did one about snowmen, one about reindeer, one about Santa in comics…but I ran out of Christmas things to make lists about. So now I feel like doing a nice, simple list where I talk about all the exciting things I want to see in the Boba Fett TV show! That sounds like a fun Christmas activity. And a year from now, when the show kicks off, we can all look back on this list to see if I got anything right!
I am not ashamed of blatant fan service, especially not when it comes to my personal Lists of Six about Star Wars things. And I promise not to put Wraith Squadron on this one. So join me after the jump for my hopes and dreams for The Book of Boba Fett!Read the rest of this entry
This was a bit of a pickle over the weekend and it turns out we’ve already got an answer! The Book of Boba Fett — which was teased in the final episode of The Mandalorian season 2 — is going to be its own spin-off show. Jon Favreau said as much on Good Morning America this morning.
The show will feature the same producers, Favreau and Dave Filoni, with the addition of Robert Rodriguez, who directed Boba Fett’s debut episode on The Mandalorian. Rodriguez, obviously, is a pretty awesome Hollywood director, so this is cool as heck! The show will involve the continuing adventures of Boba Fett and his sidekick, Fennec Shand, with Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen continuing their roles.
I thought, for sure, that The Book of Boba Fett was going to be the third season of The Mandalorian. It seemed like a bold new strategy for the popular series, spending a season following a different version of a Mandalorian. But I will gladly accept both a new spin-off focusing on Boba Fett, along with a third season of The Mandalorian.
Add to that the Ahsoka Tano show and The Rangers of the New Republic and Disney is building quite the little connected Star Wars TV Universe here. And I am in favor of all of it! Bring it on!
Last Thursday night was a crazy night! Disney held their annual investor summit and, since there were no comic-cons this year, they basically announced EVERYTHING they had coming up for Disney, Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel. As everyone here well knows, I love all of those things! So last Thursday was like Christmas come early.
I didn’t have the time or energy to write individual blog posts for every single awesome thing to come out of the summit. I shared a bunch of the trailers, which are the best part! Now this list is about some of the other bits and pieces I enjoyed! A ton of new content was announced and I want to share my favorite bits. We already knew about a lot of things, like Tatiana Maslany cast as She-Hulk and the Ms. Marvel show. We also knew the Fantastic Four movie was coming. So this list is about new things we learned at the summit, the things I am, personally, most excited about! Big and small!
So join me after the jump for some truly great upcoming geekery!Read the rest of this entry
The Mandalorian TV show finally featured Ahsoka Tano in her highly anticipated cameo appearance. It was great and I loved it! This season also saw appearances from Cobb Vanth and Bo-Katan, two other Expanded Universe characters brought in from other media. As a long time Star Wars fan, I think this is a great use of the EU!
The Mandalorian is a show where our hero, Din Djarin, and his kid sidekick, Baby Yoda, travel to different planets and help out random characters that they meet. Mostly this involved brand new original characters — which is perfectly fine — but this season has featured plenty of pre-existing Star Wars characters. I would love for that to continue and have plenty of ideas of my own for cameos!
Join me after the jump for six pre-existing Star Wars characters that I would love to see show up on The Mandalorian! Expect some SPOILERS for recent episodes. And feel free to share your own character ideas in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
