Agreed. People shouldn't even be in here if they haven't seen it yet. Their fault if they get spoiled. 

I stayed away intentionally.  Now that it was like 3 weeks ago I can speak freely about it and read everything on here.  I tried to read all of it before replying, but I do not have time right now.  I wanted to get on and give some thoughts.

My first reaction was "of course it's Luke"...and was a little pissed at first, but it was hard not to love it.  Best part of the whole episode was him crushing the dark trooper with the force just before getting to the bridge.  That was a call back to Vader at the end of Rogue...how he just kind of went off...it is nice to see the real strong force users actually use it.  It was really cool to see Gideons face also when someone said it was a Jedi.  The way the Jedi were handled...... is strange...in the original trilogy it was Obi Wan and Luke and then Yoda and a disgraced one in Vader.  Then 15 years later we get hundreds of them and they are all wiped out pretty handedly, felt like they were weak...it is hard to put a finger on it, but they felt like nobodies....now another 15 or so years later they start coming back and super scarce again like the original trilogy and shown to have enormous power (Rey, Luke of course etc) 

Some of my first thoughts were about Luke, Yoda and now Grogu.  Luke was trained by Yoda, Yoda dies and now there is this other "Yoda" and Luke will train him...I also tried to put Luke and Kylo together with Grogu...as far as timeline, but unless it takes Luke like 20 years to train Grogu that is not going to happen.

Outside of the little backstory for Luke in the new trilogy and him trying to train Kylo and failing and Kylo killing a handful of force users/Jedi in training we do not know much about Luke and what he was up to all that time.  I doubt we get a ton of that.  The CGI was not terrible, but it was noticeable enough to be distracting.

So people are thinking we get Fett in the next season as the main guy?  A one off for one season then back to Din?  I have not done much reading about any of the stuff coming up yet.  I have time in the next few weeks to get caught up with all that, but I am not sure I would like that.  Continue with Din, give Fett his own show, even if it is just one season.

Fett and Din are having different shows.  Fett's story is not part of The Mandalorian.

Yup. A season of Fett, immediately followed by a MandoS3. It's supposed to be in the same timeline, ruling the gangster underworld, but I'm sure we'll get the sarlac flashback or something, even though I think they've already explained that enough.

I’d guess the last episode of Fett will heavily include Mando and segue right into S3.

Good.  I was reading through the past few weeks pretty quickly and thought the next season of The Mandalorian was going to feature Fett.  Or people were thinking it may have been that.

The confussion came from Disney saying MandoS3 would premier on Christmas. Then a week later the show announced Book of Fett Dec 2021. It took them a week to clarify what was going to happen.

Yeah I read through the last 3-4 pages pretty quick at work.  So we get more Mandalorian stuff next year, but looks like that is it for next year.  I was reading trying to see if anything else was coming out, but it all says TBD or 2023 etc.  Little bit of a bummer it is going to take that long.  

I am sure I knew about it and forgot but they are doing a new trilogy.  New characters etc.  That appears to be far off, but cool to speculate on.

We are getting The Bad Batch and the anime show at least.

I had a dream that I was sort of in a live action series for Star Wars and some of you were in it too.... it was a mixture of reality and the show.  I came across Padme, who was coming back, it was Natalie Portman.  You guys saw me with her and I mouthed "OH MY GOD!!!" to you, so as it now blow our cover with her and scare her away.  It's like we were on a stage or something.

It is so rare I recall a dream, but that would probably be one I would remember.  I am so fascinated by dreams.

All the animated stuff will be something I catch up on in 5 years or something when the kids are older and may be interested.  It will be cool to see stuff and be able to connect it to the stuff I am watching now.  I really just do not have the time for them these days.  I am glad you guys are getting something at least though.  Hopefully COVID is a thing of the past real soon and none of us will have a ton of time to watch shows because we will be out and about trying to make up lost time.

Regular people may want to be out and about. I just want to sit at home watching Star Wars shows. 🤷‍♂️

I know why I had that dream.  I saw a youtube video last night before bed that was describing Thor 4 and Guardians 3 and how they suspect the crossovers to work.... Portman may or may not have been in it. (half assed spoiler I guess but it's just speculation)

Finally finished season 2.   Unfortunately I knew it was Luke the whole time or atleast I strongly suggested cause I remember seeing a tweet the night it aired from Hamil saying something like "Anything happen tonight?" or something to that effect so I figured that meant he appeared in it.   Anyway still thought it was cool but I would have preferred Mando to save the helmet removal and face reveal for Grogu at the end instead of doing it the episode before.    I think it would have had a much bigger impact.

We saw his face last season when the robot healed him in the finale.

Oh yeah forgot about that, still though I think they should've saved the reveal for this finale.   Neither of those previous instances were crucial to the overall plot, they could've told the same story without him revealing his face both those times.   I think Grogu being the first person to see him take off his helmet would've made that moment mean so much more.

I actually think the episode before this last was pretty crucial to his slow transformation of not caring about the helmet. Bill Burr even called him on it. "Can you not remove the helmet or can people just not see your face? Which one is it"? And the talk about how all men have a line. At some point you're willing to cross it. Then we saw him do it when it was the only way to get the code. I don't think that episode works at all without him taking his helmet off. Just my two cents.

Some Ahsoka rumors:

Spoiler

it will pick up where Rebels left off, with Ahsoka and Sabine looking for Thrawn and Ezra

Also... should I rename this thread to something like "Star Wars Disney + Series"... I don't know... throw out some ideas.  I'd rather not have a separate thread for each one becuase often the discussions spill over.  But I'm open to suggestions.

I think there will be less spillover when the shows get going. I don't think the board is in danger of being overrun with new threads if they each have their own thread but I can also see where an overall Disney+ thread might just be the way to go.

The only argument against that is if someone hasn't seen all of the shows and only wants to discuss one or two of the shows that they are watching. Having another show spoiled would be a bummer.

Gina Carano, aka Cara Dune, has been fired by Lucasfilm and her agency for saying dumb **** on Twitter ("being a republican is like being a jew in the holocaust"). Later! 

They were going to announce her as the star of her own show back in the big December announcements, but they held back after she started Twitter ranting. Today was the last straw. 

She cost herself a whole lot of money.

How stupid can you be?  Seriously. Keep that **** to yourself. As for mandalorian no big loss. They can either let the character die out and never be mentioned again or recast. And with so many Star Wars shows coming out her story is not necessary.  
 

she was already on thin ice as it was.  Apparantly sometning to do with gay rights.  Some in the Star Wars twitter verse are upset with Rosario Dawson but that seems a shakier case. Don’t be messing with my Ahsoka. I already ordered the socks.
