    I truth if you leave the Skywalkers alone, and for the most part the characters directly associated with it, I think the stories can stand for themselves. In this way some of the toxic nature of star wars fans will dissipate. I think the TV shows have all done a good job of Tangentially relating to the films. I suspect we are going to get a lot more of Filoni's Mandalorian lore from the rumors. So my guess is that Mandalorian will join at the end of the season with Bo Kitan, from a rumor, with Sabine and Ahsoka, from another rumor, to fight Moff Gideon for the Dark Saber. i also guess that Bo will die in this fight leaving it to someone else to take the mantle of Mandalore.

    My guess is the season builds with Moff chasing down Mandalorain for baby yoda, probably wanted for his DNA in rebuilding the emperor, and other Mandalorians trying to reunite their scattered people. Mando wants to find Baby Yoda's home, but gets sidetracked. This leads him to Ahsoka and Sabine, the only two with any real knowledge of the Jedi. A luke Cameo would be awesome, but we won't get that, and perhaps shouldn't.

    I said nothing about meeting everyone's expectations or letting (toxic) fan opinions dictate the story. I expressed none of the statement you're arresting me on. I addressed, and argured against, the notion that LFL ought to lie to and disinform their audience to keep the fans guessing.

    Of course LFL should not cater to toxic fans, and of course the artists should make the films they feel passionate about. Just as, of course lying and spreading disinformation is a bad idea.

    My apologies then as the above statements mean "all" or "100%" in my language.

    If this is true, I will be excited. The Jango Fett actor would bring much-needed prequel references (if we’re going to include lots of easter eggs, please make some prequel-related.) However, there is a danger of having Boba Fett as a character: he is so well-known and loved by fandom, there is a strong possibility his presence will overshadow the Mandalorian. Then you’ll get the fans who will beg the question: “Why couldn’t the Mandalorian have just been Boba Fett?” I mean, talk about a good backstory.

    As much as I doubt it would happen, but considering Lucasfilm was planning to do a Boba Fett movie, I wouldn't be surprised if him returning would be a backdoor pilot for his own series.

    Honestly my reaction to hearing the news when they announced The Mandalorian was "Why isn't he Boba Fett?" Haha.

    I think this may be what I've been waiting for my whole life.
    Don't let me down Favreau. You're the key to all this. Don't let Filoni ruin Fett's shine again.

    This is the way (boba fett)

    Jango Fett and subsequently Boba Fett are not Mandalorians, they wear Mandalorian Armor, but in canon they are not so far Mandalorians. So the show "the Mandalorian" could not be about them. Sabine is a Mandalorian, but even she does not follow the code, she deliberately left. This would be the first show about a Mandalorian character, who follows the mandalorian code and was raised as a mandalorian warrior.

    Mando and Boba fett, should not get a long, in fact he should be insulted by someone wearing the armor of a mandalorian without in fact being mandalorian. My guess is Sabine will not remove her helmet in this series, when around other Mandalorians, she tended to try not to offend them.

    I would faint to see Temuera (welcome back to the galaxy bro!) portraying both Boba and Rex in the same scene using some movie magic, doing what would be a polar-opposite characterisation of the two most prominent Jango clones.

    P.S. Loved Almec's armor in The Clone Wars series finale arc, declare me Boba-hyped!

    I think it's a great idea. So glad Boba Fett will be back.

    Of course, the Mandalorians are big on adoption and could, in theory, adopt Boba Fett as one of their own. I'm not saying they should or that it would make for an interesting development, (although a good writer or filmmakers certinly could make it a powerful thing if they really wanted to), but it is one of a thousand different posibilities.

    I really like the idea of Boba Fett coming back in some meaningful way. Should make for an interesting story, I think.

    I can't help but assume that if a character like Ahsoka shows up in Mando, she'll be treated to a bit of a soft reveal.

    Remember that Mando is essentially told through Djarin's eyes- he, most likely, does not know Ahsoka. So, she'd likely be re-introduced entirely.

    And even if she wasn't, and she and Djarin somehow have some history, would it really be the end of the world. I mean, the heist episode last season had about three or four characters with "hey buddy, remember all those wild adventures we had off screen?" moments. Sure, some audience members would recognize Ahsoka and some wouldn't immediately, but... that's okay?

    Oooooor maybe....he portrays BOTH. Hmmm........
    --- Double Post Merged, May 21, 2020, Original Post Date: May 21, 2020 ---
    I sit and shake my head in some form of strange amusement at this news....let me explain;

    I was NEVER a "Fett Fan"...ever, and when he (seemingly) became Sarlacc poodoo in RoTJ, I just thought "oh, another dead bounty hunter, oh well...moving on!!", because to me, he was a slightly larger incidental character than the others (See: Lobot), but nonetheless to me..."Incidental", and I never really understood the draw of fans that he got.

    Moving forward, I WAS actually satisfied with knowing his (and Jango's) story in the PT, which again, was enough of Boba for me, and moved on, still SMH over how fans were captivated by him, but ok, it was fine, just not my cup of tea, or any kind of hero to me.

    NOW, here we find out that he's going to be in Mando...AND portrayed by Morrison...AND we're supposedly gonna get Rex AND Ahsoka??? Ok...NOW I'm excited to see the Fett-man, and would actually be TOTALLY satisfied if Morrison portrayed both of his characters...bring it on Favreau...fully stamp your name in the history of Star Wars...I dare ya....

    It would be great to see Boba Fett hired by Moff Gideon, sent to capture the Child by hunting down the Mandalorian.
