The Mandalorian (*spoilers* for released episodes only)

Post by Gergall »

Please do not post spoilers of future episodes in this thread, regardless of source (rumors, leaks, interviews, etc). Not even in spoiler tags.

Spoiler tags are considerate for major developments (a character dying, for example) for a day or so after a new episode releases. But it's not likely to be enforced unless the PC wants to suddenly come up with and announce a moderation policy for this show. I haven't seen anything yet. So we can all just try to be nice people.

3 Friday, November 13
4 Friday, November 20

A 3rd trailer goes up tonight. But what's the point? The show is out tomorrow.

I will skip it. All it will do is spoil some additional details for a show that I'll be able to see the very next day.

If I understand correctly, Disney+ launches at midnight pacific tonight. Does Mandlorian #1 launch at the same time?

It seems like if you're on the west coast (or just a night owl) you could possibly watch the episode before bed tonight.

Very real possibility of some kind of technical issue on launch. App might not appear in the app store on time, or maybe Disney+ crashes from the huge launch rush.

So, good luck tonight!

The countdown on the site made it look like it was launching at midnight eastern.

I just saw a news article that said midnight Pacific, but the countdown on the site seems to be going 3 hours later than that (3am Pacific / 6am Eastern).

It's already a fiasco! Do I wake up early and watch before work? Hmm.

Sorry, I'm bad at math. It sounds like 3am Pacific, 6am Eastern.

Disney had at least two online countdown clocks ticking down to different hours recently, but the company said Sunday that Disney Plus is supposed to officially launch at 12:01 a.m. PT Tuesday. The service is launching in the US and Canada at that time. In the Netherlands, where Disney has been offering Disney Plus free as part of a beta test, the app will switch to requiring a subscription.

However, people who start checking for the Disney app before 12:01 a.m. PT may see it pop up sooner because of quirks in different app stores.

An article that specifically says to ignore the timer has me thinking that it really is midnight Pacific.

Just finished the first episode, pretty damn good and seems like this will be well worth the $6.99.

Had no issues with the app or the stream fwiw.

Just watched the first episode. Well worth the 6.99 even before you factor in how I'm going to watch star wars 24/7 now since I work from home....so pumped for rewatching all of rebels without having to use a terrible app like the old Disney kids app.

This has the potential to be the Peak TV Star Wars Breaking Bad that we've all been waiting for.

I'm sure some of the below was in the trailers, but I stayed mostly trailer-free in the run up to the show.
Spoiler
Show
Seeing an IG droid in action was seriously cool. I saw baby Yoda(or something like it) coming from a mile away, but I still like the concept. The fork weapon from the Holiday Special caused me to cheer and probably woke up my wife. Discussion of Beskar and Imperial Credits versus other currency really made the show feel like it's in the same universe as the New Canon books.

This was my thought process:

"It's going to be a little girl, because it's always a little girl or a baby or something like that.""but they said it was 50 years old.""Oh, it's a baby Yoda."
I want to emphasize that I like it a lot. It's the perfect mix of silly and awesome.

The two most intriguing things to me were the baby Yoda and the Mandalorian base. That was seriously badass, I am sure they'll tie this show into the Mandalorian lore started by George and Dave in TCW and Rebels. I wonder if the female Mandalorian will turn out to be Bo-Katan.

I still don't know if the group that held the baby Yoda are Trandoshans, Niktos, or both.

Good stuff. Some surprises and cool visuals. Very interested to see the why behind the subject of the bounty.
Spoiler
Show
Maybe I missed it, but wasn't the bounty to be taken alive if possible? So why did the IG want to kill it? Maybe it was a different person who put out the bounty for the IG, and they worked together because of guild rules and not having the same emplyer, but I must not have understood.

I thought the Imperial remnant type stuff was cool, can't afford to have clean stormtrooper uniforms.

Also barbecue kowakian was funny.
