    Some of the makeup looks cheap

    The only thing that really stood out to me as bad was that triangle headed thing in the cage in chapter 1. It looked like a really cheap muppet. And the creature on the rotisserie wasnt much better.

    But thats a minor quibble. At least it wasnt a semi prominent character like Nien Nnub in Jedi. Hes always driven me nuts.

    I think they may. They still have the Disney Movie Club, which sells DVDs, blu-rays and 4k discs. They haven't slowed down with adding new titles to disc - Endgame, according to The-Numbers.com grossed an additional $65 million on blu-ray. Not much in the grand total of $2+ billion, but not insignificant either. Most movies would kill for an extra $65M.

    That's the creature that Salacious Crumb (from Return of the Jedi) is, and he looked like a Muppet in ROTJ, as did most of the creatures in Jabba's Palace, which is why ROTJ isn't a fitting ending to SW and ESB. BTW, I suppose it is possible that thing in the cage was Salacious Crumb, having survived the destruction of Jabba's sail barge.

    I thought the Ugnaughts were a little bit different in the face, even more piggish. Weren't there Ugnaughts in Jabbas guard force? Or maybe its the height, where they were definitely taller in RoTJ, if I have the race correct.

    The green guys from Jabba's palace are Gamorrean. Ugnaughts are the shorter "builder/scavenger" types from Cloud City in TESB. They toss 3PO's head around.

    Not that you're wrong but a fun fact is that there is also an Ugnaught in the background of Jabba's sail barge. I assume it's in that movie simply because they still had the mask laying around at ILM and they shipped it off to London for Return Of The Jedi.

    Even further down that rabbit hole, per Wookiepedia, his name is Yoxgit...AND he is supposedly the same Ugnaught from Cloud City.

    Small galaxy. :rolling-smiley:

    And that's not even an Expanded Universe thing- it's actually canon!

    It struck me that the narrative structure for The Mandalorean is the same as a video game. Chapter 2 was a fetch quest with a mini-boss fight. Baby Yoda is an NPC you have to protect (although it follows without prompting and generally stays out of trouble).

    Thanks for the corrections.

    On a whim, I put on Ep IV Sunday. So Monday was Ep V. I will go through all of them in some sequence. Time for a refresher.

    What was also very interesting, on Saturday I put on a youtube of Mandalorian history. It was pretty comprehensive, starting from thousands of years back in ST history.
