    The visuals are so beautiful. They definitely spent their money correctly. Furthermore the show seems to be pretty dark and kinda violent. I'm excited!

    So Boba Fett in everything but name...!

    It does look pretty amazing, although it feels very reminiscent of watching Rogue One and/or its trailer (some very similar looking scenes), mashed up with a little bit of 'Solo.' But then why wouldn't it? It's Star Wars!

    Looks pretty amazing anyway, and I'm thinking maybe Star Wars can be more at home on TV than at the cinemas in the years to come.

    I'd say it depends on whether the Mandalorian is a Mandalorian. According to the new Canon Boba Fett was not :D

    Looks fantastic. Music is amazing. This is what I want from Star Wars. These shows will lead the way for SW's future.

    Yeah... those are just merely plot/story details! Fett's status as a Mandalorian is irrelevant.

    Conceptually - on the face of it at least - it's just the 'same' as making a series about Boba Fett. He looks like Fett, he's a bounty hunter like Fett, he's a mysterious man of few words like Fett, he delivers his bounty in carbonite... He's everything people expect Boba Fett to be. He's Boba Fett in everything but name!

    ...and for anybody who pays no attention to all that 'expanded' stuff? They're going to look at him and think 'Boba Fett!'. And I wouldn't be surprised if there is absolutely nothing in the new series itself to contradict that assumption!

    Well if the bounty hunter cusses them out while chasing them down, then prays for them after being captured and offers them a cigarette;then we'll know for sure.

    Yeah.. but let's face it. It's IG-88 in everything but name!

    ...I wouldn't be surprised if 12-LOM got added to the cast of characters at some point!

    Perhaps IG-11 has a short-lived dalliance with a droid called IG-77 and IG-88 was the result... :D

    (That’s not true! That’s impossible!)

    You mean IG-11 merged their code with IG-77's and downloaded it on to IG-88? Yeah, I can buy that.

    It looks amazing for being a tv show. It looks like it is going to be a fun wild ride. I can’t wait to see more

    Maybe there is an artificial intelligence called IG that makes multiple replicas of themself kinda like Ultron or Agent Smith.

    'Tales Of The Bounty Hunters' is an old book now, but just in case anybody still doesn't want to know - response is in spoiler tags! :p

    According to 'old canon', that's not too far from the truth. If I'm remembering his story in 'Tale Of The Bounty Hunters' book correctly, IG-88 places a copy of his 'sentient' codebase into a number of other IG droids and later downloads himself into the computer system of the second Death Star, and in so doing becomes the second Death Star.

    I wonder if anyone we're familiar with could be one of the bounties the Mandalorian goes after? So much post-RotJ potential.

    I hope someone is working on Mandalorian Lego sets and a Mandalorian video game.

    This trailer sent my expectations for Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan series through the roof!

    I've been saying it, Disney+ will be a bigger deal than people realize.

    Indeed XD
    This series is in the middle of Solo movie.
    Definetly I would looooove to see Alden's Solo and Chewi in the middle of some kind of smuggler/bountyhunter mission. Oh dear... That would be... perfect.
    Or any of the Ot or Prequel characters or supporting roles around there, in a second shot or with a few lines. Or something to tie with Sequel events.
    Ok, am really hyped right now...

    That's cool, and I'd be up for familiar characters making an appearance, but when I mentioned possible guest stars, I was referring to famous actors who wanted to be in a Star Wars movie, but there never was a part quite right for them. There could potentially be some very powerful acting taking place based on the level of talent a show like this could attract.

    I hate to burst your bubble but the Mandalorian is set post ROTJ either 3 or 5 years so we probably won't get to see Alden as Solo.
