    Trailer needs more Herzog, but other than that...thumbs-up. It appears that The Mandalorian does not have a jetpack. Which makes me hope that the main series-arc is just him running around everywhere trying to find and kill the guy who stole his jetpack.

    Also, every episode of this series should feature a post-credits scene of Herzog reading a Wookieepedia entry about a thing from Legends EU.

    Recently saw the official trailer for The Mandalorian....amazing! This looks truly incredible. Just based on the trailer, I'm looking forward to this show more than the ST films:

    - Amazing new ships.

    - Nice to see IG-88 (or an IG-88-like robot) in action for the first time - the scene with him battling the stormtroopers was a fanboy's dream [​IMG]

    -Interesting brief scene with the Nien Numb-like alien riding on top of a creature.

    -The creature in carbonite resembles one of the aliens in the ANH cantina, i.e. the rat-like creature.

    -Cool to see Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed in the Rocky films; Predator 1) in the show.

    -It's interesting to see Werner Herzog (well-known German film director) in here; how bizarre. I'm actually a big fan of Herzog's films, but they are truly avant-garde & in many cases twisted & truly $#$%#-up (in a good way). So, he is the last person I'd expect to see in a live-action SW TV series - LOL.

    Three months is not that long to wait for this - very cool [​IMG]

    I still can't believe that Herzog has even seen a Star Wars movie let alone being in Star Wars. Though just because he's in The Mandalorian, there's still nothing to say that he has seen one.

    Herzog also appeared in the final season of Parks & Recreation. You just never know where he'll show up. He was gloriously bizarre (like the show).

    Herzog was also The Zek in the 1st Jack Reacher movie.

    Based on the trailer, Disney is getting my money this fall. I’m way more excited about this than Episode IX.

    Dumb question.

    Who are we supposed to cheer on for in this show? The Mandalorian? He's a bounty hunter, no?

    Or is he gonna a bounty hunter with a heart of gold?

    We don't know! Isn't that awesome? I'm treating it like Breaking Bad now. You know you shouldn't root for the main character but you WILL.

    I have the feeling that the character will be deadly but he's not going to be a monster like Walter White either. If he is, the rest of the characters around him will be the folks to root for.

    Let’s keep in mind that Disney+ will strictly limit itself to PG and PG-13 fare. The anti-hero aspects will be kept to a minimum.

    I just paid for a 3 year subscription to Disney+ in part so that I can watch this with my family of Star Wars fans. With taxes it came to the very reasonable price of slightly less than $5 a month.

    You can shoot 50 people in a row or fist fight 100 guys at one time but as long as blood isn't flying everywhere, it's PG-13 today. Not to say that this show will do that but violence is perfectly acceptable in PG-13 material (or whatever rating system will be used) when there isn't realistic consequences of that violence.
