How so? He will be showing his face...Hayden won't be.

They will be. Months ago they had already announced he was returning as Anakin and Vader. Imo , this investor day just made it official

For a 2nd to last episode of the season, was a bit underwelming and its like George Lucas is still writing the dialogue. If they can somehow make Bill Burr unfunny, that needs to change. 

They obviously wouldnt kill the title character but my butt hole was puckering when Mando was throwing hands in armor that wasnt bullet proof for the first time since the 2nd episose of the show. 

Ooof , I liked the episode . Not as cringe as George Lucas dialogue , what crack you on TUF?!

Side tangent:

I watched Attack of the Clones few days ago (hadn't watched it in while) , and Boba mentioning Jango in that last Mando episode got me wanting to see Mace yeet Jango again 

Anyways...there's some real damn cringe in episode 2. God damn that movie is boring for the first...idk..1 and half hours. At least when they get to Geonosis,  it picks up a bit. 

Best part of movie is when Shmi dies and Anakin is built with rage and starts yeeting not just the men , but the women and children

Cause up until that point of the movie , finally someone aint talking and we just get to watch Anakin DO something rather than just say rando things. Also like how qui-gon is trying to reach out to Anakin thru the force while he is slaughtering not just the men , but the women and the children. You can hear his voice when it cuts to Yoda meditating. Scene should have been a bit loner tbh

He almost certainly will be or they wouldn’t have cast him. 
 

Even if he doesn’t, you have no reason to think so, dummy.

If they barely showed pedro pascals face and he just does voice what makes you think Hayden will get much if any screen time? 

 

The vader character only took his helmet off twice in the Originals...once for maint and didnt show his face and the other when he died.

They could put anyone in the suit, if they brought back Hayden they did it for a reason.

Force visions, flashbacks, etc.

Your takes are terrible dude.

They can do without the aiming and just have the Padme, or Vader and Padme, or just Padme.

 

I'd be fine with whichever.

 

Or Evey in that pink dress,

Female Thor,

 

 

Think you get my point.

That’s the clone wars tv show and that show is aimed at kids.

Powered through season 2 this weekend while 8 dealt with a new bedroom set and rearranging my place.

 

Pretty good overall. I like how they are using the side characters that were fan favorites,  but never made it much further.

 

Seeing old Fett was great. I wish they would have done something a little more Vaderish from Rogue one with Ahsoka. Where you just see the blades cutting people down and you dint see her for a little while longer. Makes the informed fans know, and makes the new fans see the badass she is.

The best for me will be Thrawn. I read the Zahn series back in the 90s, maybe even early 90s and thought it was a great series. It was the future of the series before Lucas picked the ball back up again. 

 

Obviously its not a Perfect show, but as a fan it is checking all the boxes I like.

Im glad im not the only one that was bothered by this but didnt think it was worth mentioning. They almost pulled off something real cool but the reveal was weird. It should have been like Jaws under all the fog and then reveal her before showing the rest if that opening sequence.

Live Action only...she is not into animation.

Well they are never going to do a live action movie about Anakin and Padme because the actors are too old now, and they already did it.

Can they please make a Vader Movie that takes place between Ep3 and Ep4

Can they please make a Luke Movie that takes place between Ep6 and Ep7 (IDC is Luke has to be digitally remade to be young)

Having Luke post Empire and Pre Force awakes would be good.

Could add Mara Jade, Thrawn and a whole lot of other Canon on there

We don’t need the Vader movie. That time period has been thoroughly covered and we don’t need to retread it again. The period between 3 and 4 has two movies, two tv shows, dozens of comics and novels. They’re about to have the Kenobi series as well.

We need to see more of what Luke did between the OT and ST, but after that let’s just move on from the skywalker saga completely.

So I watched the deleted scenes for Revenge of the Sith for the first time last night and George really hated Shaak Ti. The first 2 I watched were her getting speared by Grievous and the Anakin in the Jedi temple. It was hilariously unnecessary.

Does your family have a gaming console? If so, the game Jedi Fallen Order.

If you have an Xbox, just buy a games pass subscription because it’s on games pass.

He listed five presents coming from 3 sources. I dont know what kind of austerity Xmas you cholos do in Mexico but his list was fairly modest. If you think he’s spoiling his kids you don’t want to know all the **** I buy for my baby girl.

It’s a little more adult, but there’s no gore or dismemberment despite killing storm troopers with lightsabers. Maybe check out some gameplay footage on YouTube to see if you think it’s age appropriate

Not that I recall on cursing, and definitely no sex. The main character is a survivor of the purge so there are some dark themes. A few character deaths. Honestly, nothing worse than Anakin butchering younglings that I remember. The tone is closer to revenge of the sith than a new hope

I just got done playing this a few weeks ago. I can confirm that there isn't any bad language or inappropriate scenes. 

The only real dark planet that might be scary depending on the kids age is Dathomir since it's full of Night Sister Zombies and acolytes.

SPOILERS

The more this show toes the line on the OT crossovers, the more I wish they'd just stay in their lane. You want to give Boba a redemption episode? Ok. I'm ok with it, but seeing a character as sacred as Boba get thrown for five by an SJW in the bar felt a bit sacrilegious. Maybe they really should have just let old things die. Gravedigging Luke should have been a bit more subtle imo too. It was fun seeing him get a "full power Luke" moment that mirrored his dads Rogue One hallway scene but felt a bit tasteless in the end. An opportunity was missed to have Boba on the bridge when Luke came in too.

Also, that ending means that either Kylo diggled Baby Yoda at Luke's school or Baby Yoda is an escape artist because he has now escaped both the Order 66 slaughter on the Jedi Temple and Luke's school. 

Overall, enjoyed the season more than the first and kind of looking forward to a post-Baby Yoda series where Mando can either throw bounty hands again or is caught up in the Dark Saber politics.

Look, I haven't read the comics or books or anything...I don't know any of the background stories etc etc etc.

So I really enjoyed the episode....the reveal at the end was awesome to me...tons of questions going into season 3.

I liked it. Not only was Luke a badass, but now the kid is gone and Mando can move on to new plot points. How long could we really have him baby sitting?

Everyone is saying Grogu must have died at Luke’s temple, but there’s a million ways to have him not be at the temple when that happens.

On the bold, I think it was the way to power check the new chick to a known baseline. She must be stepping up next season. I was more dirty that they played the "dark sabre can cut through anything", "well almost anything" in the bar scene, stole from the tension of the Moff battle. I knew once they said it beskar must stop it.

 

Still down about this series. They shortcut good story telling, they dont world build, and they set new lore as they need it blatantly through quick and direct conversation. I havent felt there has been any cliff hangers I didnt feel would be resolved by the next episodes problem->solution format. 

 

I hate that they know we will watch it because its Star Wars. They treat the numbers they generate though this series as a barometer for doing it well rather than blind franchise allegiance. If they do the other Star Wars series with the same level of plot transparency i will be done with the franchise, they need to stop relying on the universe they already have and expand it. If only they could write to the level of the visual effects...

Boba the Hutt! 🤣

 

Finale was good. Seeing Luke as a Master at his peak was ok, but I honestly would have preferred they either used some less known, or even ****ed with everyone and brought back Mace.

I figured they would keep the Skywalker out if the series.

 

That said, now we will see the battle of the Mandalorians over the blade. So I guess its a new chapter so to speak. Bring in Thrawn!

Thrawn is the baddie for the Ahsoka series apparently. Im good with 1 more season of Mandalorian and then move on. Wish his story had stayed more confined.

My guess is Din will join Bo Katan to help take back Mandalore.

The rivalry shoehorned in between Boba and Koska makes me think theyll do some kind of Din vs Boba angle now that theyre both sitting on their respective thrones.

 I doubt we are going to see Boba on the Mandalorian again. They are going to do the Boba Fett show and they just put him in here to show the fans he’s alive and to rehabilitate his image a bit because he was a villain up to now.

If I'm reading this right then the Mandalorian S3 is being pushed back with the Book of Boba Fett in it's usual spot next year. Great we're getting more content but bit disappointing that it's at the expense of a 2021 Mando S3 I suppose.
