Yeah, a well-done Star Wars television show really needs a healthy dose of graphic violence and sex. Bring it on Disney!

Isn't this going to be on the Disney streaming service, which is going to be directed more towards kids? Or am I remembering incorrectly?

Never said that... just needs to be less G and more PG-13. The animated series would go weeks without anything of significance happening.

Yes, it's a streaming exclusive. But, no one said it's designed to be kid-friendly. We won't know any major details for months as they haven't cast anyone or shot anything yet. I think it's still being written.

If it's a streaming exclusive, I expect it to target a slightly older demographic than regular Star Wars productions. Kids don't pay the streaming bills in a household.

But the Disney streaming service has reportedly been targeted to a younger demographic.

At the very least there's no way they're going to go the DC Titans direction with this, if it's going to be on the same network as the Disney animated features and such.

I was like wait wasn't he already in Star Wars Rogue One? I always get Pascal and Diego Luna confused.

Okay, feeling this. Definitely got our interest. Next Clone Wars season is Mandalore centric, and now this....

This has to be about a guy with armor and big guns. It has to be!

Re: The Mandalorian -- Star Wars live-action series coming to Disney streaming

Sounds good on paper, especially if Pedro Pascal is in the lead, but the Mandalorians have always been lame and boring when show up on Clone Wars and Rebels.

Couldn't agree more. Rebels totally screwed the pooch with that story line. It was completely uninspired.

Re: The Mandalorian -- Star Wars live-action series coming to Disney streaming

Yawn. Obviously a vehicle to resurrect the most overrated character in the saga. I expected something...better. Or at least more creative.

And yes, I know the title of the show does not mean Bobba Fett.

Dave Filoni, who has worked on “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels,” will direct the first episode of the series. “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, “Dope’s” Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow (“Jessica Jones”) will direct additional episodes.

Totally agree. Because the internet is the internet, I'm still expecting backlash for BDH, but I think it's great.

I don't know if I like the Mandalorian main character, because you just can not separate that helmet from Boba Fett. Change the color and remove the antenna, but I think it still looks like Fett to most people. I wish they'd either lean all the way into it and have it be him, or go another direction entirely.

Honestly a small gripe because I'm really looking forward to this, and will absolutely sub to their streaming service just to see it.

Sounds good.

I still haven't watched The Clone Wars animated series yet.

Re: The Mandalorian -- Star Wars live-action series coming to Disney streaming

Personally, I'm whelmed.

I never got into the Mandalorians in the EU and I found their plots on Clone Wars and Rebels to be a little tedious at times (though I loved the Sabine character).

But Favreau seems like an interesting choice and it's Star Wars so I'll be watching.

If itís about his son, my guess is that Boba Fett will appear at the end of the first season.

I always thought the EU was trying to make the Mandalorians into the SW equivalent of Kilngons. They need to tread carefully, but the list of behind the camera talent they're assembling is quite impressive.
