Yeah but I believe the Boba Fett series is next in line. Season 3 may not be until 2022.

Yes there will be a season 3. Did you watched after the credits of the last episode of season 2?

There is a confirmed Se 3, and a spin off.

Re spin off..... you saw the post-credits scene of the last episode, yes?

No, it's just funny that NTP got like 3 nearly immediate replies that all effectively said the same thing.

No, but I just went back and watched. I don’t get what the deal is with the scene, and already knew a Boba Fett series was coming.

Unrelated, D+’s interface is **** compared to Netflix.

I don’t remember details of it, as I haven’t seen it in forever. I’m not an Uber SW nerd, if it helps.

When the episode came out, the news of the Boba Fett series hadn't been announced.

Agreed the interface needs work.

There was a rumor of a Boba Fett series a few years ago, but that turned out to be Mando.

I know this makes me a garbage person, but I was finally able to sit down and watch S2 of The Mandalorian. **** incredible from start to finish. Favreau and Filoni have done an amazing job with this show. As much as I loved S1, the expanded scope, characters, and story (seemed like a budget expansion as well) made S2 much more grand. Some random musings from someone who binged the show over the past two days:

- I love how Jedi's and the force are things that most characters in the universe have never heard of. Star Wars has been dominated by those two things for four decades, but the ignorance makes the universe feel much more expansive with more stories to tell.

- Starbuck still looks good. The Dark Troopers having similar design to the original Cylons made me laugh.

- Gina Carano has gotten thiccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc. The most unrealistic thing in the series was her running.

- I've never watched any of the cartoons but was familiar with Ahsoka because the internet is full of nerds. Seeing her character styling in a live action production was some wild wild stuff. The white light sabers also looked awesome. I enjoyed Dawson in the role and look forward to her spin-off.

- The name drop of Grand Admiral Thrawn makes me wonder if Disney regrets the direction they took the sequel series. Even without directly adapting the Thrawn Trilogy, there was a sequel framework there that could have worked and probably kept the fanboys happier (**** them anyways).

- Took me forever to realize that was Michael Biehn. Dude looks like Deadpool without his mask on.

- I liked Boba Fett being alive more than I expected. Ming-Na always looks good and a buddy bounty hunter spinoff with those two should be fun.

- I liked the character direction for Bill Burr. "Just workshop some stuff and we'll film everything going on around you."

- The finale was just mind-blowingly awesome. As soon as I saw the green lightsaber I knew something special was going to happen. Same kind of feeling with Vader at the end of Rogue One. The de-aging of Luke could have been better, but whatever.

- That ending of course leaves a ton of questions. My guess is S3 turns to reclaiming Mandalore, but there's no way a license to print money like Grogu is going to be kept out of S3. That of course begs the other question of what's going on with the little **** during the sequel trilogy.

The white light sabers also looked awesome.
There's actually an interesting bit of character development at play there. She started out with a single green-ish blade which she lost in combat. Some time later, she constructed her first dual blade set - the regular saber having a green hue, and a shoto blade being more green-ish yellow - both with the recognizable rounded hilt profile. Using these blades, she defeated an Imperial Inquisitor who wielded a double-bladed lightsaber. She took the crystals from his sabers, and used the Force to purify them and fee them of their burden*, and used them to construct a new saber/shoto set that was more rectangular at the hilt. Since the crystals were now just pure Force energy they emitted no color when powering a lightsaber blade. (This is also reflective of Tano being at peace with her position as a powerful Force user who is neither Dark nor Light)







* The reason Dark Side users have red blades is because they exert an unusual amount of will power over the krystal; essentially, when in use the crystal is doing the mineral equivalent of 'bleeding'.
