THE MANDALORIAN, in a Civilized Age

I am seriosuly concrened that Season 2 will be The Mandalorian's downfall from awesomeness.

But I also harbored such fears about every episode of season 1 that came out. And it turned out good.

I don't know anything about Dawson, Eckstein, or Ashoka.

Eh, if it's bad, it's bad, but there hasn't been so much as a teaser yet, so I wouldn't waste time worrying already. So that you can avoid any serious spoilers, I think all you really need to know about Ahsoka for Mandalorian season 2 is that she's a former Jedi, and she's familiar with Mandalorians and their culture.

It's probably the reason they considered adding her in there, since Mandalore had quite a few stories set in the Clone Wars, and The Mandalorian is definitely good about throwing in a lot of references to those times.

I expect it to "fall" eventually. It's one of the few things that a bunch of fans haven't whined about, so Disney is probably gonna milk it dry. Season 2 was shooting before season 1 had finished airing, season 3 is in pre-production while season 2 is still a while off, and there's that docu-series that recently got announced.

I never expected Ash vs. The Evil Dead to be good for three seasons but it was! As long as there’s a plan in place for wrapping it up they may pull it off.

If I have to watch the Millenium Falcon miraculously turn on it's side at the last moment one more time, I'm gonna lose it. Get a new trick, filmmakers. Not every scene with the Falcon needs to be a rehash of the ESB asteroid field. Ditto one more club full of freaky deaky aliens.

Also, the gun getting taken out or disabled, forcing the pilot to lose the enemy ships by maneuvering in a creative or unexpected way. It happens in TFA, TLJ, Solo, and also recently in a The Clone Wars season 7 episode. I get that there are genre tropes, but at least pick a new one instead of repeating the same scenario over and over.

surely he's dead for real this time. Maul can't be in everything. Can he ?

What if it was a small cameo part like Matt Lanter had in the first season?

EDIT: referring to Sam Witwer being in season 2, not Maul.

Please. I hope they fix their non sense decisions of making Jango and Boba non-mandalorians. Love Temuera Morrison

Wasn't them not being mandalorian more an example of political swing?   I believe the minister who said that line was, at the time st least, pretending to be loyal to Satine, who was trying to change Mandalorian culture towards non-violence.   Doing this aids his subterfuge.    
 

So certain points of view and all that..

George Lucas never intended Boba Fett or his 'father' to be mandos. They simply wore the armor to inspire fear. Who knows? Maybe Filoni and Favrau will walk this back canonically in season 2.

Or maybe Boba will come after Mando and they will have a final showdown, allowing Mando to fully usurp the title of 'cool Mandalorian guy' from Boba forever. 

Another likely scenario is that Temura Morrison was cast in an unspecified role and its just hype and misinformation. He could be playing captain Rex for all we know. After all, he's a bit old to be playing Boba Fett, who would be around 40-45 years old at this point. Tumura Morrison is turning 60 this year.

Jango Fett survived his beheading and went on to father Aquaman, didn't you know?

That is how I have always felt it was supposed to be as well, but after being told time and time again that Lucas said they are not. Well I just came to accept that they are right and that the line is supposed to confirm it. 

They haven't yet come out and said they are actually Mandos... so I am really hoping they do make them that at some point. This might be their best opportunity to change that. Especially with all the other ones still left.

I just don't understand why all up and sudden change their status back then... even in Episode II the Kaminoans confirm Jango to be Mandalorian. How would he trick these scientists and everyone around them to believing that, especially with so much profit and prestige on the line. They made this mess for no reason as I see it and they should fix it.

I mean, the big line in the first season of The Mandalorian is about how all it takes to be a Mandalorian is to follow their creed, so I see no reason why Boba can't become one. It's probably too late for Jango though. Dude took his helmet off in front of too many people, so Mace Windu removed that option for him.

True. And I also just realized that Temura Morrison is probably just doing the voice, so his age shouldnt be an issue.

Man, it would be cool if both Boba and Rex made an appearance. One, becuase Morrison is a great actor and it would be cool to see him in a helmetless role, and two, it would be interesting for Boba to interact with a clone survivor.

The whole helmet thing is a new tradition I think, probably becuase of the Empire's brutal Mandalorian genocide.

Yet half the Mandalorians in the Clone Wars and Rebels remove their helms. The continuity is too buggered for this to even be a thing honestly
