Star Wars: The Mandalorian

Post by Raid » Sun Apr 14, 2019 5:25 pm

Probably proving once again that Dave Filoni (the guy largely responsible for both The Clone Wars and Rebels) is doing more for Star Wars than the films are, this is the first live action Star Wars series. Jon Favreau (who is a pretty big Star Wars fan, seemingly) is the showrunner, with Filoni as executive producer. It stars Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell from Game of Thrones), Gina Carano (an MMA fighter and American Gladiator), Giancarlo Esposito (Gus from Breaking Bad) and, apparently, Werner Herzog.

It's set a few years after the Battle of Endor, following the exploits of a Mandalorian gunslinger for hire.

...and that's about as much as we know. It's more Star Wars, probably showing the grittier side of the franchise, and I get the feeling that it's going after the Game of Thrones fans. It's probably the reason I'll cave and subscribe to Disney+, because I'd forgotten it was happening until this afternoon.

here a prediction - this show will be behind the Disney + paywall = the most pirated show ever surpassing GOT
Games playing : Metro 2033 / The Messenger / Metro 2033 / GTA V (and One Finger Death Punch whenever)

At least GoT was available in the UK legally. There's literally no way anyone but people in the north Americas can legally get this. Their piracy rates are going to be brutal.

Huh. I had no idea that there was no UK launch date for the service yet.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't announced by the time this comes out. It seems a bit daft to launch your new streaming service with a pretty significantly hyped show to draw in subscribers whilst not having it available outside of one country.
