Honestly something I’m considering getting. My daughter will love it but there’s a lot of stuff adults can enjoy, especially the early Disney classics.

Yeah looks like a lot of great content for the whole family and even cheaper than Netflix. My only disappointment is that it won't get a global launch and most countries in Europe and Asia will have to wait until next year for it :(

Ridiculous that in this day and age its still a stuttered release of Disney +!

They deserve to lose all the revenue they do from pirating for being so useless.

Trailer looks decent cant wait to see it released now.

Yeah it looks like it has the production quality of a movie. I mean I knew that they're working with a huge budget which was reported to be 100 million dollars (so 10 million per episode!) but I still didn't expect it to look THAT good! Great scenery, great costumes, the special effect look good as well.

I also love the setting; it has vibes of a western set in space and looks it will be quite dark and gritty - something that I always wanted from Star Wars!

New trailer:

 

Looks fantastic.

Was reading somewhere online that they've already started shooting Season 2 so they must have some high hopes that this will do well.

Yes and first reviews from the journos and critics who have been shown extended footage from the first three episodes are overwhelmingly positive as well so I'm sure the show creators are very confident it will be a big hit.

This is quite a good read from EW: https://ew.com/tv/2019/09/05/inside-the-mandalorian-star-wars/

It really looks like a show that Star Wars fans will adore.

When I saw that Favreau was directing it I expected some action but it seems like they've gone a step further with what they are trying to portray here. Looking forward to see what it actually delivers now. The cast seems solid and I expect there to be a Favreau-esque type of comedy in it.

Every time you remind me, it also reminds me that the UK are not getting Disney + at launch, which makes my blood boil. So thank you, for boiling my blood.

Looks great!

 

But did Werner Herzog always act? It was weird to hear him speak in it, don't know why. Also Bill Burr has a role in it, which is kinda funny. And I think I saw the woman who played Pocahontas in The New World? Anyway, looks exciting!

I watched the trailer, Inga. It fucking rocks. It also makes the treatment of Star Wars by JJ and Katherine Kennedy look pretty shameful. Apparently 25% of the series is Boba Feet footage from the prequel film they abandoned due to not wanting to pay George.

They obviously spent more time in the stories vs the actual trilogy.

Saw the trailer yesterday. Well cut and makes it seem intriguing. 

The series is helmed by Favreau (who knows how to produce big budget projects) and one of the episodes is going to be directed by Taika Waititi so this should be really interesting. But the thing that I like the most is Filoni's involvement. I have watched a bit of the Rebels series and enjoyed what he did with that. He should get to be at the helm instead of Kennedy.

Just watched it! 

First things first - I loved it. The production value is extremely good. It's visually stunning, the soundtrack is amazing, the storyline is promising and the most important thing - it truly feels like Star Wars due to it being so true to the original trilogy in terms of pacing, world building, old-school effects, goofy humour, witty dry dialogue and the overall feel. Also so many nods to the original movies in the details; love it. Funnily enough, I have a feeling that because of of all that the show is going to appeal more to the somewhat older Star Wars fans who grew up watching the original trilogy whereas the younger generations might struggle a bit with it. Old spaghetti westerns are definitely a huge influence as well stylistically; it's gritty, fun and engaging.

The ending of the first episode...I won't do any spoilers but the reveal is going to have MASSIVE implications for the show and for the whole Star Wars universe.

A short summary of my first impressions: it's a visually stunning space western in a Star Wars universe with cool characters, engaging story, good action and amazing musical score. It somehow manages to capture the essence of both the prequels and the original trilogy, all while keeping it completely new and fresh. This is Star Wars I fell in love with!

Highly recommended.

Im watching it tonight so I will chip in when I get to it.

@nudge how much Boba Fett footage appeared? The higher production value material is from that canned production

To be fair I don't think there's any footage from the cancelled Boba Fett movie production there... Where does this rumour come from?
