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.

I’m not sure if he’s partially CGI or not, but I love how baby Yoda is made to look like a puppet. Like in the old movies.

The same with using real masks and makeup for alien characters instead of CGI.

I love the length. It helps to avoid 10 - 15 minute dialog scenes (i.e. Game of Thrones & Walking Dead) that are nothing more than rehashed exposition.

Baby Yoda is a puppet. No VFX.

These episodes just keep getting better and better. And Iíll say that I really appreciate that, at least up to this point, they are not taking time with a lot of back story with the main character or in general explaining how we are at the point where we currently are in the story. That typically seems to be a slow down point for most series. If you want to do that do so in a short amount of time at the very beginning of the very first episode and be done with it. Otherwise treat your audience as if they know what is going on. They either already know or donít. And those that donít will either take the time and effort to go learn or decide to walk away in confusion. And contrary to conventional wisdom, there is nothing wrong with that second option. When something attempts to cater to everyone is when it gets bogged down and watered down. Hopefully this series avoids that and just continues to give little tidbits about the main characterís back story. If you want to do an origin story than do one, otherwise letís get the hell on with the current plot.

It's very similar to the theme from "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".

I also heard some notes from Karate kid.

The main theme, the one they play over closing credits, has a distinct Bill Conti vibe. Going the Distance from the original Rocky, specifically the passage dun-DAH-dutdutdut-dee-dut-DAH. Certainly the tempo and chords are a direct borrow. specifically look at the stanzas at :16 and 1:30

Ludwig Goransson scored Creed and Creed 2 and is scoring Mandalorian.





You'll see, you'll all see, when the bell rings the Mandalorian's not just another bum from the block. . .

Outside all of the impressive music recognition going on in this thread, I have to curse Baby Lee for getting Cake's "Going the Distance" stuck in my head. Shit. Well, off to listen to some Rammstein.

This too.

For some reason it doesn't bother me.

I have nothing significant to add regarding The Mandalorian, but I will remind everyone that Brittany Murphy was a hot little biscuit and her early passing is entirely unfortunate.

Probably the weakest episode yet(still had fun with it), but it felt decidedly lower budget, almost like an episode of Xena Warrior Princess.

Never been huge into Star Wars, but I'm thoroughly enjoying this one.
