It looks good to me. But I'm a little gun shy on Disney's recent track record. For all I know, it will be wall to wall virtue signaling and all of this space western gun slinging is just a big dumb feint.

I've been thinking that this is starting to look like the Star Wars we were waiting for. Why didn't they just have John Favreau write & direct in the first place???

This has too be good for Disney they know they have damaged the Star Wars brand even if they will never admit it and they over payed Lucas for the rights to Star Wars.

I hope you're right and it does look cool. I guess the cynic in me is always expecting the worst out of shows and movies these days.

I don't think they overpayed. If they had treated the brand well they should be swimming in money now, but since they did nothing of the sort, their toys are not getting bought and people are not going to the movies.

The Mandalorian looks good, but i will wait for word of mouth to tell me is good before I make an investment in Disney+

Already subbed (early entry deal!) for D+, will be dropping Netflix shortly.

This series actually looks decent, but it's easy to cobble together enough scenes to generate excitement even from a dud, so we'll see.

If D+ doesn't deliver, I'll walk from it like I'm doing from Netflix. It has promise, but the service (and its exclusive shows) really needs to produce. It will hit the ground running based on reputation and back catalog, but it will hit a wall if it doesn't offer exclusive value fast.

And yes, I know much of their IP will be exclusively there (and the rest will follow when freed from licensing on other platforms), but folks have a lot of that stuff on DVD. The service needs more than just a streaming back catalog to entice folks to stick around.

Whoa. Did I just see Bill Burr in that trailer?

I have my hopes up for this; already signed up for Disney+. If it sucks, I'll be cancelling.

Actually interested in this mostly due to Favreau being all over it. Verizon is giving a year of Disney Plus for free to unlimited to subscribers so I am not out anything extra. At least there will be something on there that is new to watch.

Wait... bounties frozen in carbonite? Wasn't that just an on-the-spot thing that Vader did to Solo in order to test a trap? Not a normal method of how bounty hunters normally capture their targets? Even Fett was worried about it. Now suddenly it's been ret-conned into a how they always freeze people for space travel?

I never knew that, wasn't in the movie right, book detail ?


Anyway, they have to grab from somewhere, I doubt most do their homework on IPs before shoveling filth and labeling it beloved content

No, that is in Empire. Vader makes a comment about compensating Fett if Solo doesn’t survive the freezing process.

Still, it doesn’t bother me since the new series takes place after Return.

I believe the show takes place after Return of the Jedi. Maybe the whole carbonite thing worked out so well after Empire that people decided to use it more often.

If they don't release all the episodes at once, for any of their new shows, I will not subscribe.

This really is the Star Wars we have been waiting for. It's amazing how good Star Wars can be the second the writers stop virtue signaling and concentrate on the core of Star Wars... which always was a Space Western/Samurai story.

Getting a great Lone Wolf and Cub feeling from the first two episodes.
