I’ve waited for the European launch of Disney Plus to watch the Mandalorian, because I’m a grown-ass adult and I can wait for things. I have watched the first episode now and...it’s fine. Going through the motions of Star Wars...stuff. I get it. People love that.
Werner Herzog is amazing and I would watch him narrate a history of the Empire any day of the week. The effects were good and I think I saw some puppets in there as well?
It’s comfort food. Yet another confirmation that Disney has no interest in continuing the themes of The Last Jedi. At least for now. Never say never and all that. But the people have spoken, and the people want Star Wars to do and say what it did and said 40 years ago, over and over again.
