Maybe we'll see IG-88 attempt his plot for galactic domination by downloading himself into Death Star II like in Therefore I Am: The Tale of IG-88 story.

This series looks pretty sweet.

I heard it's not IG-88.  Like The Mandalorian isn't a Fett, the droid that looks like IG-88 is a different model.

 

I just wanna see Salicious Crumb toasted on a stick.  Mmmm, mmmm good!

It's IG-11, and apparently he's being voiced by Taika Waititi. There's also apparently going to be comments/jokes about the two of them being mistaken for Fett and 88.

Hey - anyone managed to watch this yet?  Heard whispers of good reviews for the 1st episode.   

 

Gutted it's not out here in the UK until March, so will be keeping an eye on the usual websites to see about downloads!

That was rad. I'm all in. It's perfectly cheese and family adventure. Hopefully they don't **** it up

My only main criticism is the pacing was a little fast for my liking. But it was a 40 min episode. Wish it was 50 mins or an hour and a slightly slower pace.. More like a western rather than kids attention span pacing. But other than that enjoyed it a lot

The best thing I have seen in SW in a long, long time.

 

I was more emotionally moved when the whatever Salicious Crumb is alien in the cage watching his peer get cooked than anything I have seen in SW.  

 

It feels very Dark Tower-esque and The Mandalorian is The Gunslinger/ Roland.  Which is awesome....

I thought it was ok, didn't blow me away by any stretch. Good enough to keep me watching for now though.

I think it could go either way-- but i had a lot of fun. Most importantly, like TFA, it nailed the tone. It FELT like Star Wars, which in my opinion most official SW products do not.

 

The FX weren't quite movie level, but they were certainly good enough. Loved the IG. The creatures and props were spot on. If the Obi-Wan series hits this level of quality we're in for a treat.

 

My one big question is how often is Pedro Pascal actually playing the Mando? TWO stunt doub les were listed. He could be pulling and RDJ and just doing most of his work as VO and unmasking scenes.

I have an associate who is a Star Wars wannabe fan boy. I say wannabe because he usually tried to impress me with his knowledge, and I usually end up correcting him. He says to me this morning, that it's obvious the baby at the end is a clone. Now I'll just wait and watch, but how was that obvious? Did he miss the part about it being 50 years old? Why does everyone go to Star Wars characters needing to be related to someone. You hear that JJ!!! Don't do it!!!

I'm watching the second episode when I get home from work.

Maybe he meant clown. It’s definitely a clown.
