    After 1 episode, it doesn’t seem like it.

    Only think that would help for context is that this takes place 5 years after Return of the Jedi

    Not a lot of actual story but fantastic world building, cinematography, acting, etc.

    I wish I could binge it all. I guess this will be a weekly-Tuesday release?

    Just finished Ep. 1

    fucking loved everything;
    The tone
    The casting
    Everything

    Probably the most underrated part were the subtle nods to the OG trilogy; an Ugnaught, an IG-series bounty droid, a entry droid that was the same kind as Jabba’s palace. The Salacious Crumbs on a spit/in cages, Carbonite freezing...it wasn’t all in your face like hahaha here’s R2D2

    In the OT and the old EU I’m pretty sure he’s the only one. I think there’s another one in the background at the Jedi Temple in the PT but not sure.

    The show only reinforces my belief that Filoni should replace KK as head of Lucasfilm.

    If you're looking for a "Kevin Fiege for Star Wars" there's your man.

    Side note: Taking care of a baby for 50+ years sounds like a never-ending nightmare.

    Ship-sized carbon freezing unit seemed a little convenient given they had an entire floor and huge equipment dedicated to it at Bespin.

    Bespin was an industrial site and it wasn’t ever used for humans before Han. Maybe you don’t need such a big carbon freezer if it’s designed for humans and it can fit on a ship.

    I suppose the Mandalorian just adopted what Vader/Fett did with Han in ESB. Maybe in the five-six years since bounty hunters realized carbon freezing was an effective way to move their prisoners.

    Since, you know, it was an unheard of thing that Fett didn't like when Vader proposed it in Empire.

    For all we know Han might have jump-started the miniaturization of the entire industry. Fett could have shown how effective it was.
