The Mandalorian (Star Wars live action show)

Recommended Posts

Mando primes the Whistling Birds.  The Child immediately closes it's dome. 

This is The Way.

I have a lot of Clone Wars and Rebels to catch up on in the next six weeks.

Kind of just dawned on me that with all the mandolorean trust issues, having and actual mando in Sabine running around with the Jedi that he needs to find makes a lot of sense. And the roll she played before, she might also be a good catalyst for him starting the effort of rebuilding the civilization. If that is the direction they are going, I’m sure Filoni thought of that 10 years ago when he was fleshing out Rebels.

So the bring down, has anyone heard if Pablo has worked his issues out with the execs?

There is enough blood in the water I’ve heard that I believe that he walked off the set midway through the S2 filming.

I know he was quoted in S1 he didn’t like not being the actual mando being filmed most of the time but S2 has some new rumors that he got into it with execs about his role in the series.

i read it was friction with season 2 switching gears halfway through season with the show focusing more on other characters. i couldn't find anything confirming what the beef was about and if it was resolved?

maybe filoni introducing ahsoka, sabine, the dark saber and shiz made the show more of a rebels spin off than about the mando and Pablo said no bueno???? just spitballing here.

Also my wife watches Grace Randolph and she was saying the same thing a week ago

maybe this is what caused  the shift in the story lines from mando centric to other characters and storylines?

and the whole mandos cannot be seen without their helmets on is weird as shit as CWs and Rebels had Mandalorians primarily without their helmets throughout both series.

this is a odd hill to die on for both filoni/writers since they already set precedence that isn't true and pablo since he knew that was a premise of the character anyway, at least for this show.

I'm sure there could be friction but this is the same chick who said Kathleen Kennedy was going to be fired and then KK got an extension. 

I'd imagine after the success of season 1, Lucasfilm switched gears and now wants more live content for Disney+. Hence, bringing in Ahsoka and Sabine. Bob Iger said they'd have some branching off series based on season 2.

Yeah I’m just seeing if y’all heard anything more.

I hope he isn’t done, the idea of spinning off beaches for other series is an obvious jumping point. Hell if he wants more face time it’d be the prime point to get his helmet off if Sabine comes in helmetless.

I’m still hyped beyond belief though and I’ve watched that teaser probably 10-15 times now

I think there's mostly smoke as far as Pedro - and it's not like the whole point of his kind is that they don't take their helmets off.  And running to KK seems like the last thing to do, because if anybody is going to vote to reduce his screentime and boost that of others, it'll be her.

But I do think there is some fire as far as KK.  There have been some comments made publicly by various interested parties about differences in opinions, and from what I've heard, Disney is trying to shuffle KK over to one of their other studios.  Lucas the Man is not happy.  Fans are publicly mocking the sequel trilogy while praising the hell out of Mando.

And then Daisy Ridley recently dropped that little bomb about the director/writers not knowing what the fuck they were doing, which then pissed the fans off yet again, after the last movie.

The fact that Disney scaled back plans for future Star Wars movies is, by itself, an indictment of KK - it's a public lack of confidence that she can make Disney a lot of money with those movies, even though they should be automatic money makers.

The problem for Disney, and I'll be the asshole and say it, it's a bad look to fire one of the most powerful women in Hollywood.

KK is the anti-Christ for the SWs franchise. 

HOWEVER, she gets a pass in my book because she was the producer for Fandango (the movie). She's a fucking genius!!!!!!!!!

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!?!?!

 

I was hoping that wacko was going to be pushed out, especially since she said they had no plan for the trilogy and sort of let each director do their thing. Which of course made it one heck of a continuity mess from movie to movie

 

Thanks for bringing me down while a hurricane is coming my way

She was one of many producers. 

Pat Kehoe...associate producer

Kathleen Kennedy...executive producer

Frank Marshall...executive producer

Barrie M. Osborne...associate producer

Tim Zinnemann...producer

Steven Spielberg...executive producer (uncredited)

 

I guess Tim Zinnermann was the main producer.

 

 

Sooooooooo, FUCK Kathleen Kennedy

It was my understanding from the first season that Mando and the others he was with were a very orthodox faction of Mandalorians. Don't remember how I picked that up, but it was the lens in which I viewed them as they introduced their society.

The Death Watch Mandalorian group saved the child Mando. In CWs and maybe Rebels (not sure DW was in Rebels), Death Watch had no mandate about helmets always on. 

However, maybe something happened during/after the Empires war with Mandalore that led to the mandate and they have yet to touch on it in the series. That's the only excuse that I can think of for the odd inconsistency which is so un-Filoni like. He's usually really good about being true to the story and tying shit together.

Maybe some kind of "revival." Would make for an interesting episode.

Yeah, I can’t imagine this won’t go unanswered by Filoni. Why even cast an actor if that’s not going to change?

That's like being shocked that I'm of Italian descent and have 2 Jimmy's, Butch, 3 Pete's , Frankie, Paulie, 3 Anna's, and a host of others.

That’s past Italian and into New Jersey Guido territory.

Video breaking down the trailer. If he is right about his theories, Filoni is going to pull another Filoni and tie everything together like only he can do.

Edit: if you are worried about potential spoilers maybe don't watch, but it is mainly speculation. There are possible Clone Wars and Rebels spoilers, though.

Filoni is an actual Jedi.

I hope that shit about Pascal being a bitch isn’t true. But if it is fuck him, get someone else. It’s not hard to find another voiceover person who sounds like him.
