He's great. He killed it on Narcos.

I'm certainly excited by the news.
I think this has the potential to be a good show, but not quite excited. Basically my excitement level is subdued yet optimistic because I did really like Rogue One, but I can't say I was hoping for this show. Never really even occured to me to do a pre Rogue One Andor show. If they do this show in a way similar to Kyle Katarn in Dark Forces, back when he was strictly a spy/merc, then I think Cassian Andor can turn out be a pretty cool character for this show.

The best way around all of that is to give us a new character that has all the trappings and coolness of Fett, but not the complicated history.

Totally agree. I mean there probably is a way they could have made Boba Fett into more of an anti-hero, but it probably would have been complicated like you say. That may also be why they killed the idea of a Fett film, too. Better to start with a clean slate. This isn't 1983 where the only Mandalorian we know of is Boba, especially after video games, Jango Fett, The Clone Wars, and Rebels (BTW, good to see Dave Filoni is involved).
Who knows, maybe Boba Fett will appear at some point in the series as an antagonist, if LFL wants to retcon the Sarlac pit?

There's a feeling that The Mandalorian will turn out to be Fett. I kinda hope it doesn't, but I also think we won't know until one of the last episodes in the season for some kind of identity/twist reveal.
I guess its possible, or something like Son of Boba, but if there is a Fett connection, I would rather it be Fett as the antagonist.

Disney have already said all content on the service will be family friendly, so won't be MA.
Glad to hear it. I'm no prude but MA does not always mean its good. Especially with a film/TV series that started off as and traditionally remained PG. Star Trek Discovery proved that when they tried to be MA.
