    Would it be too early to make predictions?

    In R1, there were two memorable quotes by Cassian Andor about his own background:

    "I've been in this fight since I was six years old". I hope we get some flashbacks or full introductory scene with young Cassian.

    "Is he a Jedi?" Sounded to me that he must have at least seen one in person. Hoping we could see a familiar Jedi next to him at some point.

    Has anyone Diego Luna in anything, other then R1? Can he carry a show by himself (if necessary)?

    +1 for Gareth Edwards being involved in this. It would boost my interest big time.
    As far as I know, he's the lead in Narcos: Mexico, which is coming to Netflix next week. It's gonna be a good test for him. Personally, I haven't seen him in anything other than Rogue One yet, but I think he'll be fine, I'm not worried about his acting chops.

    i've seen him in older stuff and in some of his mexican films. he's a solid actor, i think, if people will forgive him his accent. i do feel like he struggled a bit in Rogue One, but i think the more english filmmaking he does, the better he'll get. and doing tv series is the perfect proving ground for that. doesn't look like Narcos will help in that regard, though, since it looks like his character doesn't speak english on that show.

    but i think of antonio banderas in his early days: his english was really super rough (to the point of nearly incomprehensible in Philadelphia) and he was having to learn all his lines phonetically because he didn't speak it. five years later he was a leading man.

    Luna seems to have a jump start on that; he can actually speak the language. : D

    While I'm MANY times more interested in this show than the likes of "The Mandalorian", I can't say that I'm actually excited for it.

    I absolutely loved R1, and frankly hold it right up there with the best of the saga films, but I feel like it would've been better if it had just been left as a standalone, and here we're getting a "backstory to a backstory" about a "regular guy" of sorts that has no relation to, and no understanding of the Force...which is central in Star Wars lore, and more about a war and a guy fighting it. I felt that this same thing has happened with the new trilogy...we spent more time seeing the war than fleshing out the characters that made up the immediate story.

    I know that that sounds a bit like I'm bemoaning it, and I don't mean to, but I feel like we're kind of getting away from "Star Wars" somewhat. That being said, I have little doubt about watching it...I'll give it a fair shake to see where it takes us, and how it presents itself.

    I personally think (for me) that the only thing that would make me hurry home from work to watch it would be if there were some kind of contact with things like force users, or even contact with Jedi that were on the run from Order 66.

    Like I said, I just feel like Disney/LFL seem to be straying off course, and to me, this begins to make SW seem...."ordinary", and the luster seems to be wearing off slightly.

    Give me Jedi...Give me their backstory during the PT era or before.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about in that respect. I firmly believe that there is a plan in place, and that they aren't just giving us some random shows about this 'n' that.

    I know what you're waiting for.. it's the same thing that I and probably a great many of us are waiting for - a deep,rich and mystical lore filled Jedi/force story to get our teeth into. it's coming...
