I wouldn't have expected that. Still, she can pull off a realistic fight scene. OTOH, from what I've seen, she's not comfortable with the whole press angle. Anyone know if she's gotten coaching in the last few years?

In order to really appreciate the hilarity of the tweet below you must first see the clip of Werner Herzog talking about the "obscenity of the jungle" from Burden of Dreams the "making of" documentary of his film Fitzcarraldo:

Aww... the Disney Investor webcast isn't showing us The Mandalorian teaser.  But they confirmed 8 episodes and it will debut with Disney+ day one.

Are we allowed to post the sneak peak here?

Because I found a YouTube upload in the io9 comment section that is still up.

I have two theories. They may contradict each other. The Mandalorian. He hasn't been given a name yet. Theory one, he's meant to be nameless, like Clint Eastwood in the Sergio Leone movies. Two, he has a familiar name. Like, his last name is Fett, Krynze, or Wren. Might even be Vizsla. But I would let out a male squee, a grunt of utmost approval, if he was an Ordo or a Vau*.

*Let's be honest. Walon Vau was an arsehole. But judging by the performance record of his troops, he was better than the parental verson of a gary stu, Kal Skirata.

Clan Ordo! 

From what I saw, this series takes place 5 years after Return of the Jedi with a new character. Of course new doesn't mean original, they're just saying not Boba/Jango Fett (I think).  I'd love it, if they pulled a character from the EU (Legends) or even from Rebels/Clone Wars.  Of course when they say new they could mean new to everyone instead of just new to Star Wars movie viewers.  

Hope that makes sense

Yep, it makes sense. 🙂

I'm thinking this character might be related to another famous Mando. Maybe Jango's nephew or something. I certainly don't expect him to be either a woman or dead or both. 🙂

So if this show succeeds, the chances of a Knights of the Old Republic show can only go up. I never really had much interest in the Mandalorians as a culture, and found them fairly one-note whenever they showed up. But the cast is good, and it's about time we got more non-Skywalker related, live action Star Wars.

Are you familiar with the Mandalorians from The Clone Wars? Because I preferred my one note warriors to the annoying pacifists we got.

I never really got into Clone Wars. I'm thinking more from various comic books and video games, where it was always something of a shock if there was a Mandalorian who didn't immediately try to kill everyone.

Mostly familiar with them from Rebels and really liked the characters/family/culture wrong got to see.
