A Big Pile of Honest Trailers!

Earlier this week, I regaled you all with a big pile of movie trailers that had been clogging my YouTube page waiting for me to blog about them. Welp, now we’re doing the same thing, but with Honest Trailers by Screen Junkies! These are always reliably entertaining.

And that’s that! Each one is a gem, each one is really short, and they’re a mildly entertaining way to pass some time and enjoy the internet. I hope the people making these enjoy making them. I enjoy watching them, and isn’t that all we really need from entertainment sources on the internet?

Maybe I should find more original content to share…

6 Mandalorian LEGO Sets I Need Right Now

I am a longtime LEGO fan, and this pandemic has only helped to really push my need for something to do in quarantine. I’ve bought and built a couple different LEGO sets in lockdown so far, with a few more boxes to go whenever I’m in the mood. I even built a custom Wraith Squadron character!

But more than anything else in LEGO, I need some awesome Mandalorian sets! Like this Trouble on Tatooine set!

What, no krayt dragon?

So here’s my thinking: that Trouble on Tatooine set is clearly modeled after the first episode of season 2. There’s also the set based on episode 4 of season 1. And then there’s the general Razor Crest set, which I built earlier this winter. This all means that LEGO is making Mandalorian sets based off individual episodes…but not yet the episodes I want. I really want that highly detailed, silver-armored Mando mini-figure, but I don’t want all of that Tusken Raider accoutrement. I’m a finicky fella.

Join me after the jump for six LEGO set suggestions based off episodes of The Mandalorian!

Enjoy Some Behind-the-Scenes Mandalorian Videos

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!

6 Things I Want to See in The Book of Boba Fett

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!

When did he have time to write a book?

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!

The Book of Boba Fett Has Been Confirmed as Its Own Show!

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.

Boba Fett is a big on literacy

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!
