Raya and the Last Dragon is the next big animated Disney movie and they put out a new trailer this week. And it’s…good? I want to say good. But something just feels…off to me. I think it’s the voice. Kelly Marie Tran voices Raya, but I think she was a second choice at some point. And I Just don’t think her voice syncs up perfectly… See for yourself.
The story also seems too ambitious. It seems a little too complicated.
But hey, maybe I have no idea what I’m talking about. There exists the very real chance that I am entirely wrong with my gut reaction to this new trailer. I hope that is the case. I hope this is another banger.
Raya and the Last Dragon comes to theaters on March 5, along with premium access on Disney+.
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!
I am very excited about WandaVision coming to Disney+ on Jan. 15! That’s less than three weeks away! The Marvel Studios TV shows are finally right around the corner! I wonder how shocked the Marvel and Disney people are that WandaVision is going to be the first one out of the gate. At least it looks great!
Then we’ll have to wait until March for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but I’m sure that will also be worth the wait. These shows could be the future of television! I know I’m excited for each and every one of them!
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!
