    I liked it I didn't care the cgi face was a little iffy, it was a post ROTJ Mark Hamill Luke. Any other actor wouldn't have been the same. When it was a guy with Black gloves ina robe with a green lightsaber you knew who it was. I do wonder where it's gonna go from here.

    Filoni & Favreau: We want lots of de-aged Mark Hamill in Ahsoka's show

    Disney: Too expensive

    F&F: He'll have Grogu with him in a new costume

    Disney: Here's the combination to Scrooge McDuck's vault... take what you need

    I’d like a series devoted to side stories. We hear about Death Star 2 and Bothans, lets see a season based around that.
    Next season could be between ROTJedi and TFA

    Man... since 2012, when Disney bought Star Wars, we’ve been wanting to see Luke Skywalker.

    Took 8 years... and those last few minutes was well worth the wait.

    Thank you Mando.

    I’m thinking that Cara not thinking of that is fairly easy to handwave. It could be that it’s not widely known, or that for most folks it’s just a wild rumor.

    To be fair, she didn't say she didnt know who it was. It could just be played as her being stoic.

    My thoughts on the season 2 finale:

    My thoughts on The Rescue:

    1. How is anyone who was on the first Death Star still alive? I guess he was there for Alderan Day, but off the station on a mission piloting a shuttle when it got a Yavin?
    2. Okay, Boba and Kaska need to just rent a room and work out that tension. We'll wait.
    3. Makes sense for a bounty hunter to have non-lethal ship weapons so he can capture his prey.
    4. You built super strong, tough flying droid stormtroopers, and they take 5 minutes to boot up? Slight design flaw.
    5. Do Dark Troopers can deflect blaster fire, but a lightsaber cuts them like butter? I guess they didn't do full Bescar, maybe a blend?
    6. I wonder if Gideon injected himself with the kid's blood. He plans to eventually develop force powers and become a psuedo-Sith?
    7. Why are the Dark Troopers basking in the door stopping so they can let the Jedi work his way there?
    8. So Kara will return with his prisoner dead, but with two NEW top Imperial prisoners in tow? I guess they will let her keep her job.
    9. I guess Boba had to go, otherwise he'd be like "oh hi Luke, long time no see. How's Han, Chewbacca and Leia?"
    10. You know someone might has the Jedi his name and how to contact him, or where he is going? Are Djinn get visitations?
    11. I guess Book of Boba is season 3? Instead of Djinn being the star, season 3 wiil star Boba?

    I’m pretty sure at this point “The Book of Boba Fett” is season 3. It feels like Disney would be making a big deal today if it weren’t.

    While that’s a possibility, I just don’t see Disney shelving a massively popular TV show for no particular reason. It’s already a year between seasons. I also highly doubt
    Grogu is really gone
    not only is the story just picking up pace..... it’s a cash cow. I think we’re looking at 2 distinct shows. COVID might be slowing things up but it just doesn’t make financial sense

    Something else I haven't seen mentioned,...
    not only was the helmet removal a touching scene between Dinn & Grogu it also signified what I think is the end of his Death Watch allegiance and the beginning of his quest to join Bo-Katan & the Mandalorians.

    I still think Din is the guy to bring the two clans, or whatever, together he is well-respected, he follows THE WAY, he is noble, he has all the appropriate gear, most importantly he doesn’t WANT it. Which means he is going to unite the Mandalorians. He walks in both worlds.

    But in the short-term yes he has problems, he broke THE WAY and he has the
    DarkSaber putting him at odds with Bo
    He’ll have to deal with contention from both factions but... that’s where I think this is going. Unification and leadership.

    Disappointing, this ended exactly as I predicted. Really no surprises here. Hell, makes me wonder, why did Ahsoka not say "Oh btw I know a certain Jedi Master who would raise Grogu for sure?" three episodes ago?
    The whole assault on the ship felt like I was watching a video game. Except, no, in most videogames the enemies are more challenging. Seriously, it just makes our heroes look weak if the Empire is this incompetent. Makes you wonder why the New Republic could not take Gideon down, if all it took was 5 people to board his ship and kill every trooper and officer from the hangar to the bridge without taking a scratch? Not even in Clone Wars did the Republic win so easily, at least there several soldiers and sometimes even Jedi died when accomplishing something so grand.
    Guess the Dark Troopers are made of beskar, or why else did the blaster fire do nothing to them? But it really stressed credibility when one was pounding Din's head into the wall literally, and he survived? His helmet might be unbreakable but his skull inside would have been shattered, at best he would have a concussion.
    I guess in 18 years the actor playing Jango really aged a lot. Can't help but notice he is not in the best physical shape. Maybe they should have just used a body double when Boba is in armor? And yeah, kinda makes it weird now how nobody in the old movies or any EU material ever remarked how Boba's voice is familiar, seeing as he sounds the same as all those thousands of clone soldiers.
    The whole thing really reminded me why I was never a 100% fan of Clone Wars. Even when it was at its best, it often had story and writing issues. This show looks spectacular and the characters are good, but the stories told would need to be better written.
    So yeah, my prediction is the same for next season, where we will likely have Thrawn be taken down the same way. Makes me wonder what will happen with Grogu but then again Filoni has been good at fixing continuity issues, so we will see. When exactly is this taking place? 2 years after Return of the Jedi, and the sequels are still 25 years away or so? I forget.
    I did like the scene where the shuttle pilot reminds us that millions died on the Death Star(s) and "the universe cheered", when likely most of them were just enlisted people.

    He was never a part of Death Watch, it is a different faction. We have seen several Death Watch members on Clone Wars remove their helmets, like Sabine's parents. Heck wasn't Bo Katan also a member of Death Watch once? I remember she and her sister (the queen or prime minister or whatever who was in love with Obi Van) never got along.

    Ion cannons have always been a thing. If you played Tie Fighter or X-Wing back in the DOS era, you'll remember! Often missions require you to disable a ship, not destroy it. First you need to bring the shields down then an ion cannon will disable engines and weapons. Nifty thing.

    Possible. The 10 new SW shows announced, neither of them was about Boba Feet which is strange, I expected him to get a show in an era where even the guy on Rogue One who is already dead gets a show...

    I see what you did there... ;)  Yeah, they still have a long way to go to make us forget Last Jedi ever happened (or will happen) but this is a good start.

    Seems some people still think that being badass and a good fighter equals "strong character". I mean, Cara and Bo sure are good characters and had been well written up to this point, but I could tell you nothing about Fennec and the other Mandalorian lady other than their names and professions, from what little we saw of them so far.

    As long as Din doesn’t turn out to have a grandfather named Lumpy, it will be a wonderful Life Day indeed :D 

    I never thought I’d see a Rock Bottom in Star Trek either, but that happened, so...
    :p 

    I’m just glad Sasha Banks had more to do in this one. Her character hasn’t spoken much and hasn’t gotten much development, but given the small sample size her acting seems just fine so far.

    Or they could have less of a break between seasons 3 and 4. Have season 3 starring you know who, and film season 4 so there is more like a 3 to 6 month break in between the two instead of another year. A year between 8 episode series is a long time, people can lose interest.

    Because I'm too lazy to go back and rewatch it I have to ask: did they ever resolve the...
    dark saber conflict? IIRC Mando was like "I don't want it" and Bo'Katan is like "I can't take it without killing you" and Moff Gideon was all like "Haha I've got you stuck in a logic trap" and the supertroopers (I know what I said!) show up, then Luke pwns them all and scoops up Baby Yoda and bounces and then...and then...that was it right? Roll credits. Boba Fett teaser. The end.

    Yeah, it's up in the air. Seems that'll be a conflict for Season 3.

    Nope they didn't resolve it, likely that will be an issue for a later season.

    Yes, to all of this.

    Wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    Right. Plus, just because they were both in the Rebel Alliance doesn't mean she's ever actually met the guy personally.
