The Mandalorian (Star Wars live action show)

Recommended Posts

I was sure I saw the Outrider in rise of skywalker but it turns out it might not have been. It was supposedly the ship that was added in a new hope leaving mos Eisley and a similar cargo ship was used in Rebels not piloted by Dash Rendar...

The behind the scenes stuff says they did include a lot of ships from all the canon stuff, Rebels, CW, Resistence, all the previous movies but then they started creating others in the theme of Star Wars...

Which included this ship:

I’m not saying Ashley should automatically get the nod, but I’m not totally feeling RD as Ahsoka. Ahsoka is one of my favorite characters ever and I really want them to do her justice. She has such an interesting arc across Clone Wars and Rebels.

Ashley has been the one and only voice of Ahsoka for about 100 episodes of CW and Rebels. It will be weird hearing RD trying to sound like her. Whoever gets the part is going to have a shit load of makeup. Why must they use a “name actress” or whatever was mentioned?

A little spoilerish, so I hid it.  Olyphant's character is supposed to be someone from the canon book Aftermath.  Gives a little info on Boba.

 

Spoiler

Our sources have confirmed to us that Olyphant filmed scenes wearing Boba Fett’s Mandalorian armor for the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian. That might sound confusing because earlier this month it was reported that Temuera Morrison, who originated the role of Jango Fett (Boba’s clone father), had been cast as Boba Fett. So what’s going on here?

If Morrison is playing the role of Boba Fett, then Timothy Olyphant is playing an enigmatic character named Cobb Vanth. Introduced in Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath book series, Vanth is the self-appointed sheriff of the Tatooine-based settlement Freetown. He wears a mysterious set of Mandalorian armor that was acquired from Jawas who scavenged the wreckage of Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi. As you may recall, that was the site of a battle where Boba Fett was thrown into the Sarlacc Pit on Tatooine’s Dune Sea. It’s assumed that the Mandalorian armor purchased by Vanth is none other than the infamous green armor formerly worn by one of the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunters, Boba Fett.

Very little has been revealed about Vanth’s backstory, only that he was once a slave, as evidenced by a star-shaped scar carved into his back, signifying ownership. With the fall of gangster Jabba the Hut, a power vacuum has consumed Tatooine, drawing all sorts of crime syndicates to take over the unruled landscape. Cobb has committed his life in the service of protecting Freetown and keeping criminal elements, like the Red Key Raiders, away from Tatooine. He even struck a deal with the Tusken Raiders to help protect the township.

It should be noted that all of the above character details were revealed during the Aftermath book series. We don’t know what he part he plays in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian, but I think the books offer a rad set-up for the character. The Aftermath series gave the impression that while Boba Fett may be dead, the iconic armor would live on for another generation. But if Fett himself is still alive, and present in The Mandalorian season 2, this complicates things.

In the Mandalorian season one episode titled “The Gunslinger,” a mysterious figure was teased, sporting the bounty hunter’s trademark spurs. In that episode, the Mandalorian agrees to help a young bounty hunter named Toro Calican acquire a target on the desert planet of Tatooine. Their search for the assassin Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) takes them across the Dune Sea, home of the Sarlacc Pit that was thought to have killed Boba Fett. Calican takes out Shand and tries to double-cross the Mandalorian, leading to his own death. In the final moments of the episode, we see a mysterious character approaching the seemingly lifeless body of Fennec Shand. We can see and hear the bounty hunter’s trademark spurs and a cape hangs down, reminiscent of the one Fett may have worn. Is that character Boba Fett, or is it Cobb Vanth?

Was Fett’s Mandalorian armor reclaimed by the Jawas after the Sarlacc spit them out, or did Boba Fett pawn them for a ride off this dirty sand planet? Morrison’s casting led many to assume this meant that Boba Fett survived the fall into the Great Pit of Carkoon, forever changing Star Wars canon. But that might not be the case at all. Maybe Fett’s appearance could be limited to an establishing flashback. The hardworking team at The Hollywood Reporter even noted that it was only a “small role” in season two. But why would Vanth be all the way out in the Dune Sea? Perhaps this season may be leading to a confrontation between Vanth and Fett, with the bounty hunter coming back to reclaim his armor? And how will any of this involve The Mandalorian? We’ll have to tune in to find out.

We reached out to Lucasfilm for comment but received no response back, as was typical with our previous Mandalorian scoops. The Mandalorian season 2 is still scheduled to be released in October 2020 on Disney+.

According to this, Sabine confirmed in Mandolorian, and Ashoka spin-off confirmed that will have Sabine, Hera, Chopper, and Zeb

Some WWE wrestler named Sasha Banks cast for Mando S2 that is suspected to be Sabine

I man I'm scared of this.  I know Sasha Banks as a wrestling fan...and like her in general.  But haven't seen her act at all.  And she talks with a lisp that I'm sure will turn some people off.

I thought this was just a rumor and not a for sure casting yet....but like always, I have faith in the guys running this show.

 

Guess it wouldn't hurt to have Snoop Dogg's cousin on the Mandalorian.  I'm sure he'll give it some love on other platforms.

that's correct, but they have also shown to take "legends" material and make it canon by introducing them in various ways such as Thrawn in Rebels and Revan in Rise of Skywalker. 

I wouldn't be surprised to see Legends material end up in The Mandalorian. 

Oh yeah for sure.

I was just meaning that all of that old EU stuff that was previously canon wasn't any more. But yeah, once they pull any of the pieces into one of the canon sources (Thrawn, etc.) they certainly become canon. :)
