We are bingers, but it just means we'll watch the first 3-4 around turkey day and the rest about xmas. This fall has been good for TV, with Umbrella Academy, The Boys in a few days, this... and a few others we haven't watched yet.

If you haven't watched the Gallery series (making of the Mandalorian), it's really interesting from many angles. I learned a ton about classic SW I didn't know, and the making of the show itself I find fascinating.

I will unreservedly second that recommendation for the Gallery series. It’s so good.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

1. thank you for surfacing the return date.
2. thank you for the Gallery recommendation, new to me.

I'm gunshy of being a fanboi, but I really dig this show on multiple levels, and I feel happy (grateful?) it's coming back. Puts me in a real kid mindset (in a good way).

If it weren't for pandemic-related job insecurity (tax income is down, costs are up, libraries are easy to cut), I would be getting the set of sixth scale figures Hot Toys put out. I'm still signed on for the art book, but it's pretty cheap. I'm in fanboy mode, for sure. Though not by millenial/gen z measures, I've learned through them that I'm not a geek or a fan of anything at all :D

There is a segment where Carl Withers is talking about how the new screen tech is so much better than having to play make-believe in front of a green screen. He was using the scene where


and how the tech allowed the actors to react in real-time and play off each other and the set. Nailed for me why I love the tech part so much, I've always despised how fake green screen looks in general, but the doofy 'pretend this tennis ball is an orc' kind of thing is so obvious and terrible, no matter how good the actor is.

Looks great. Rosario Dawson is Ashoka and original actor for clones is Boba Fett.

Boba Fett is a rumor still, though with support - I think he (also?) may be playing Rex, the Clone (who would look just like Boba/Jenga).

2020 will be the year I gave up all hope.

Says “Bobs Fett” in the IMDb All Cast in 2020.

IMDB has been wrong before - but again, there is support for it being Boba Fett.  It just isn't a lock.

I feel like that is what Star Wars should have been with everything after 1983.

I love the idea that it's Bobs Fett, the clone who is a used landspeeder salesman.

Imdb is just random Internet people guessing. I don't believe this thread would have missed it if there was any public info supporting it.

Rex seems much more likely in the absence of anything from Disney.

We didn't miss it - the epilogue on episode 5 is a strong hint of Boba Fett returned.  Go listen to it, then go listen to Boba Fett in ESB at the start of the dinner scene.  The spurs that jingle jangle jingle...
