THE MANDALORIAN FIRST IMAGE, DIRECTORS REVEALED

DETAILS EMERGE FOR LUCASFILM'S LIVE-ACTION SERIES HELMED BY JON FAVREAU.

Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for updates.



Is this the Boba Fett movie that has been turned into a Tv show or something else?

Also, Taika Waititi directing? Wow. Didn't know that Bryce Dallas Howard directed, only knew her actress side.

So, while most of you don`t care about children`s programming....

My kids started watching Hilda on Netflix.  They were immediately entranced with it - like they have been very rarely before.  I quite enjoyed it too.

That's the Horse, right? My children are still too freaked out by the trailer to watch it.  :lol:

My son likes to watch Power Rangers.

:huh:

I don't think so.

It's about a girl who goes on adventures in a part-modern, part-magical world.

Malthus - do check it out.

Oh! I hadn't seen that one. Hasn't crossed their radar is my only guess.

Something else. That armor is distinctive from the planet Mandalore :nerd:, it won't be the first character in Disney Star Wars stuff that wears one. 

Bryce Dallas Howard doesn't have a director resume, I guess she wants to try her hand at it and TV is actually a pretty common first step for actors crossing over to the directing side (they have much less responsibility in TV productions compared to a film).

I'm glad about Filoni's involvement. He created some amazing stories in Clone Wars and even more so in the last two seasons of Rebels.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

Watched 1 and 1/2 episodes of Youtube's series "Sideswiped," about online dating.  Part of their pay service, first two shows are free as a teaser.  Not very interesting or funny, though the sister has a nice ass.
I'm up $25 on DGuller.

Watching The Winter War on Youtube.  Action scenes are decently done, if not up to modern standards.  One thing that cracks me up is how the guys jump in a sauna whenever they get a chance.

Holy shit, is the Greendale in this Sabrina reboot set in  Maine? 'Cause this show is channeling Stephen King as hard as it can! :o

It is far better for the truth to tear my flesh to pieces, then for my soul to wander through darkness in eternal damnation.

Jet: So what kind of woman is she? What's Julia like?
Faye: Ordinary. The kind of beautiful, dangerous ordinary that you just can't leave alone.
Jet: I see.
Faye: Like an angel from the underworld. Or a devil from Paradise.

It's a slightly different tone than the 90s series, but I can't quite put my finger on it. :hmm:

The Shape of Water won best picture Oscar in 2017 and I'm sure not seeing it.

A silly frog/human love story and a juvenile cold war moral equivalence theme.  Meh.

As I said earlier, it was very well done; but by and large a King Kong remake

Season 3 of the Man in the High Castle is out.

Only watched episode 1. My take aways are 1) they have turned up the uneasiness of watching a mature Nazi society exist 2) I don't know what this season will be about

Any thoughts on the season finale of Better Call Saul?
