There's a trailer for The Book of Boba Fett now and it looks great! The show will be exclusively on Disney+ on December 29.

I wasn't sure what this show would be about or like. New Rockstars has a great video pointing out things and explaining different pieces of the trailer (https://youtu.be/QMmCt7AEFns). It looks like this is going to be a cool Star Wars with the criminal underground like The Godfather. It takes when we last saw Boba when he killed Fortuna, who was sitting on the throne at Jabba's palace.

I really enjoyed The Mandalorian and am looking forward to more, for sure! I was glad to see Boba Fett and impressed with his character. I was also glad to see him working with Fennec Shand, who I've seen in The Clone Wars. I remember seeing the unfinished episode that was going to show Boba in a duel with Cad Bane and that's how he got the dent in his helmet. It'd be great if they could actually make this into the show. It's still a mystery how he escaped the sarlacc pit. Some joke or explanation would be cool.

It seems there's also an announcement for a animated Darth Maul series that takes place when we see him in Solo. Paul Bettany is apparently returning, too. Maul was in The Clone Wars and had a duel with Obi Wan. He was also in Star Wars Rebels, too.

What do you think about this? Are you looking forward to it, too? Did you see The Mandalorian? Did you like it, too? Let me know your thoughts.

I think I had grander visions of the book of boba in my head than this trailer suggests. It looks like more of the Mandalorian, which isn’t a bad thing. So, a little disappointed, but I will be there day 1.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 11/02/2021 at 04:05am

Yeah. My guess is most "Mandalorian Shows" or shows that are spun out of The Mandalorian will look and feel a lot like this. I'm not saying any of them will be bad, I'm sure they will be great shows and I'll watch them all.

Travis   Admin wrote on 11/03/2021 at 03:56pm

I love that Robert Rodriguez is attached to this. He’s kinda perfect for a desert western, and this just happens to have some sci-fi too.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 11/03/2021 at 04:37pm

I hope Robert Rodriguez knocks it out of the park. He has had some misses.

New Boba trailer dropped. I feel this one works better than the last one. Thoughts? https://youtu.be/Bi9GRafMz2E

Looks cool. I've seen other trailers for this, I'm surprised I didn't share them.

I didn’t watch it but I’ll see it. I’m interesting please like and subscribe.

Friendly reminder: The Book of Boba Fett premiers on Disney+ in about 2 1/2 hours (3AM EST/12AM PST 12/29/21).

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 12/29/2021 at 10:27pm

(No spoilers!) If the show didn't open as it did it would have been a very strong disservice to fans. I think it's interesting how while I'm watching these Disney+ shows, they come to an unexpected end. They don't satisfy my episodic hunger for more, they give me a good chunk of a morsel, but still have me coming back for more. These Disney+ shows are among the best of 2021 and they make me look forward to what's coming up in 2022 and beyond. I'm very grateful!

Boba episode 1 was so good.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 12/30/2021 at 11:02pm

There are at least a couple of elements that could be brought over from The Bad Batch and I wonder if they will be. Maybe we'll see Muchi. There's a main character who could possibly appear, but I don't know if I want to see a live-action version of her, I didn't really like her much.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/05/2022 at 11:05pm

This is so good! That second episode started off with a tease. I was hoping to see Muchi! I'm really glad they made this great show fleshing out the character of Boba Fett. I never cared much about him before, but now I know he's freaking awesome! This episode was a bit more cultural, which is great, because it's giving another group of people some more attention. I think this show is showing us sides of Star Wars we've never seen before and that's just great! It was also a great "space western." I love it!

Travis   Admin wrote on 01/06/2022 at 03:49am

Oh crap I forgot that today was Boba day. Gotta catch up

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 01/06/2022 at 02:34pm

2nd episode is so good.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 01/06/2022 at 05:42pm

I liked how long the second episode was. Really seemed like an event more than the very short Mando episodes.

Travis   Admin wrote on 01/07/2022 at 05:54pm

Yeah this was some of the most interesting Star Wars content in a while. I never really thought about Tusken culture but I am so glad we saw it. It was fantastic.

Some deep cut cameos in this too, if you watched the A New Hope deleted scenes you’ll recognize the place with the speeders as the one and only Tosche Station where Luke wanted to go get some power converters. And the two humans in there were Luke’s friends.

Also the Wookiee bounty hunter we see is Black Krrsantan from the Vader and Aphra comics.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/07/2022 at 10:13pm

I agree regarding the Tuskens! I found out about the other details you mentioned via New Rockstars and those cameos are cool. What I really liked was Black Krrsantan. He looks so angry! I want to see more of him.

Travis   Admin wrote on 01/08/2022 at 12:24am

I bet we see a lot more of him!

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/08/2022 at 02:31am

Maybe even in Obi-Wan.

Travis   Admin wrote on 01/09/2022 at 03:20am

Ooooh good call

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/09/2022 at 04:54am

>Ooooh good call

Not really my idea. I had no idea who he was when he showed up, but watching New Rockstars on YouTube fills in the vast voids of my knowledge. It's awesome learning more about the characters and lore of Star Wars, especially when it comes from non-movie sources.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 01/10/2022 at 04:35pm

Whoa. Tosche Station, I don’t remember we’re there power converters there? It looked fairly small and not really a general store.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/13/2022 at 03:17am

"Disney+ doesn't disappoint" is perhaps the best way to sum up how I feel about every episode of these shows I watch. I wasn't too into Bad Batch, but it was still good.

(Possibly mild spoilers)
My first reaction this episode was "damn." They gave us something awesome and took it away. I like seeing BK! My second thought is "don't look a gift rancor in the mouth." Something's suspicious and perhaps why an expected name wasn't dropped. Also, the "Witches of Dathomir" name drop was interesting. I'd like to see them in live-action.

There were a few significant cameos. I know Stephen Root from the movie Office Space. Danny Trejo is probably very well recognized. He's in so many movies and more! The first time I saw him was in the movie Desperado.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/19/2022 at 11:47pm

(No spoilers). I think we're going to get a cameo from a recent Star Wars character. You'll hear a very familiar tune at one point and then you'll hear it again at the end. I hope what I heard means what I think it does! Let me know what you think.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 01/21/2022 at 06:15pm

I didn't notice any tune. :) Any hints from which show or movie?

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/22/2022 at 02:23am

What was the last live-action Disney+ Star Wars show you saw? (A question that really doesn't need to be answered, because what other live-action Disney+ Star Wars shows are there? LOL).

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/23/2022 at 01:25am

Boba sees a big light in the night sky while the flute plays. It plays again after Fennec Shand says she knows where to find some people at the end. I'm still confused about the timeline between that show and this one. I thought I understood. It seemed easy and sequential, but I rewatched that other show and now it's more confusing. I think that confusion will get resolved next episode. I'm sure *he* is going to be there. If I was forced to bet, then I would bet on it.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 01/24/2022 at 02:14am

I heard that tune Greg, looking forward to the next episode it was a MAJOR HINT smile

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/24/2022 at 03:49am

I decided to rewatch the source of the tune. It was worth it.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 01/24/2022 at 03:33pm

I remember the big light.

Travis   Admin wrote on 01/25/2022 at 06:58pm

I think that was when Mando left a certain character for dead and when Boba found that character, which was why I assumed they tossed in that musical cue.

BUT then it happened again very near the end credits! Kinda wondering if that was a way to make your brain associate both of them and notice the hint more. Kinda what I’m hoping!

Travis   Admin wrote on 01/25/2022 at 06:59pm

(We’re way down in the comments and I think everyone is caught up so I didn’t spoil much but I decided saying what I was trying to say would be insane to attempt without spoilers, so I went for it lol)

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 01/25/2022 at 08:43pm

Yeah, that is how I understood the big light too.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/25/2022 at 10:33pm

So, I wonder how that's going to help fight a war. They need an army. Maybe there are others connected. Except, now I just thought maybe they don't need an army. Take out the top and the rest will scatter.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/26/2022 at 07:04pm

There's a lot to unpack from this one. There are very many Easter eggs and at least one of them has me wondering about something. I'm hoping New Rockstars on YouTube can answer my question(s). I'm not sure how the next two episodes are going to play out. I have an idea, but it's still kind of confusing.

Travis   Admin wrote on 01/27/2022 at 01:04am

This episode is so full of Phantom Menace love. And an appearance of a new (to live action) droid model that I love!

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 01/27/2022 at 02:32am

Yeah! I really love how these Disney+ shows tie to other things (in their separate MCU/SW universes of course).

I got the answer to my Easter egg question, thanks to New Rockstars. I thought it was something else and that thought was perhaps pretty absurd.

I wonder what's going to happen next.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 02/02/2022 at 11:29pm

What's the title of this show again? "The Book of ???" I can't remember his name, haven't seen him. Maybe next time. LOL

Whoa! I was NOT expecting that cameo! You'll see what I mean closer to the end. I don't know why, but it has me really excited!

I wasn't expecting the other two cameos either. I love one of them and can't wait to see her more. As for the other one, they did a damn good job this time! I heard they hired someone who posted a YouTube video where the person fixed the issue w/ this character before. It's awesome!

Travis   Admin wrote on 02/03/2022 at 01:23am

Heh you were so vague, but I understood everything you said :D

That last cameo won't mean much to some but holy shit when I saw the distant silhouette I said "OMG is that who I think it is!?"

One thing I'll say about this episode, it's the single piece of Star Wars media I've ever seen/read/etc that makes the whole Star Wars universe feel the most connected. It was a bit pandering while also being one of the best 45 minute chunks of Star Wars ever.

Whatever happens in the finale next week, I can't wait for whatever the next series brings, whether that's more Mando or Ahsoka or whatever it is. The Favreau/Filoni teamup is giving us some great stuff.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 02/03/2022 at 01:43am

LOL I tried to be vague to avoid spoilers. It's such an awesome episode! It's a must-see!

I'm hoping that cameo will make that deleted scene in Clone Wars cannon. It'll explain a certain feature on Boba's helmet. I hope you know the scene I'm referring to.

I'm not sure what's going to happen next episode, but I imagine a shoot out between a large number of Pykes and a smaller opposition.

I wonder which choice will be made. I think I can see it going both ways, but I'm still afraid of the path ahead due to the warning A.T. gave previously.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 02/03/2022 at 04:30pm

Don't forget Boba on a Rancor!

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 02/04/2022 at 09:04am

Too late, already forgot. That rancor was a bit suspicious, I thought something was going to happen there. The way this show has been going, I don't want it to end, even though Boba's been MIA. I'm probably looking forward to the other Star Wars shows even more now. I'm sure they're going to be awesome!

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/04/2022 at 05:17pm

I was upset we didn’t get more about Snoke. I’m really hoping we get more of his backstory.

Travis   Admin wrote on 02/04/2022 at 07:56pm

🤣 Snoke is Boba Fett confirmed

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 02/04/2022 at 09:02pm

They should have called the series, Boba & Friends.

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 02/05/2022 at 06:30am

Yup! I think it's supposed to be The Mandalorian season 2.5. LOL

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 02/09/2022 at 02:36pm

I enjoyed this show! There's a post credits scene. I have further thoughts and questions, but I'll keep it spoiler-free for now.

Travis   Admin wrote on 02/10/2022 at 12:47am

The last half was definitely better than the first half but I liked the whole thing. That was a great finale that tied it all together.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 02/10/2022 at 03:42pm

What a great ending. Robert Rodriguez and Jon Favreau knocked it out of the park.

Overall, I get the complaints. Is Star Wars ever what we dream it to be? No. But is it fun? Yes. I had a lot of fun with this series.

Can't wait for Old Ben Kenobi in May!

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 02/10/2022 at 05:23pm

(Slightly vague spoilers!)
I have no complaints other than I wish CB didn't get killed, I would love to see him in live-action more. He was missing his toothpick. Otherwise, I loved it! I'm pretty much easy to please, so there isn't really anything of Star Wars I can think of that I didn't like. The major exclusion to this is the holiday special, I thought it was terrible. There are still some Star Wars things I have not seen, though.

As for the post-credits scene, I think they must have plans for CV if they made that scene. He got shot in the shoulder, so I don't even know why he needs a mod.

I'm wondering if G is going to go to the dark side. My guess is that D is going to the living waters cave to get his cult cred back.

I can't wait to see Grand Admiral Thrawn in live-action! I'm sure that's what Ahsoka is doing, looking for him and Ezra. I believe Sabine has already been cast and I'm looking forward to seeing her, too.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/11/2022 at 02:12am

> I have no complaints other than I wish CB didn't get killed,

Cough. Darth Maul....

Also, no one's really gone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNTLC_uiGFA

> I'm wondering if G is going to go to the dark side.

Doubtful. I don't mind but Boba Fett is now patting puppies on the head. I mean shit they couldn't even keep Rancors scary!

> I can't wait to see Grand Admiral Thrawn in live-action! I'm sure that's what Ahsoka is doing, looking for him and Ezra. I believe Sabine has already been cast and I'm looking forward to seeing her, too.

My money is on a Snoke show. I'd call it "Snoke The Backstory Years"

GregoPeck   Super Member   Post Author wrote on 02/11/2022 at 02:27am

Yeah, good points, Jon. A Snoke backstory could be interesting, too. Star Wars is huge and there's lots of potential for more show or movie content.

Just a quick FYI, Obi-Wan's release date is May 25.

Travis   Admin wrote on 02/11/2022 at 03:25pm

As many times as Cad Bane has gotten out of trouble I wouldn’t be surprised if he somehow managed to survive that.
