      Did anyone notice that the part Mando got from the Jawas (for get the name) looks like the one Luke and Han used in the original movies for trying to stop the trash press in the Deathstar they encountered during their escape with Leia?

    I don’t mind this being a Din Djarin centric episode at all like some others do. I think the writers are trying to say with this episode that people shouldn’t see The Mandalorian and BoBF as two separate shows but as one big Mandalore saga.

      I’ve uploaded a Boba Fett Episode 6 Review & it would be cool if other huge Star Wars fans could give their opinion on the episode and tell me why they agree or disagree with my opinion on the series so far. Would be great to discuss the series & hear different opinions! 💯 Thanks for your time if you choose to do so! 👊🏽!

    The episode does not depict a Dyson Sphere, it depicts a ring version of an O'Neil Cylinder, famously featured on Larry Niven's Ringworld. Also, the native inhabitants of Malastare are the Dug (aka Sebulba from Episode 1). The species mentioned in 2:22 is called Gran. The Gran colonized Malastare at some point.

      @Peter Gallick The ring in Ringworld was built to protect civilizations from the explosion at the galactic core. Entire civilizations, which is why it was so big. (The explosion has already happened, but it will take so long to get to Known Space, that no one is doing anything about it, lol.)
      The radiation from the blast will kill everything, so the ring was made of scrith which would stop the radiation, and the axis of the ring is perpendicular to the core.
      Well, hey, I didn't write it, lol...

    • Backroad Junkie

      @Muttskit I remember Niven even had a passage describing how there was no morning or evening, just darkness, and within seconds, daylight.

    Also the “weight “ of the sword deals with a long-standing issue of why do Jedi swing a saber like it’s heavy when lasers are weightless? Seems to suggest the weapons have a force of their own and not being one with it makes them heavier

    • Backroad Junkie

      I think Fett joins the Mudhorn Clan, and he gets his tribe, the thing he most wants. (The Mudhorn Clan may only be two right now, but if Din is ruler, more will probably join.) That's why they had to catch-up on Din, and what he's been doing.
      So this episode would be integral to Fett's book. It will end with Fett getting his tribe.

    I like the theory that the Naboo Starfighter that Mando has is the same one Obi-Wan took from Naboo to Tatooine seeing as how the last planet he visited before the dustball was Naboo, makes sense he would have taken one.
    Also @20:06 that isn't a Rodian kid, it's a (presumably) human kid wearing a helmet and holding a mini X-Wing, as you can see from the hands and neck area under the helmet, which looks like the kid has hair (that Rodians do not)

  • Jason Dodge
    Jason Dodge 3 months ago +13

    Theory: We'll learn that Boba Fett really doesn't want to be a Crime Lord but it was the only thing he could think of doing and was being opportunistic. It's also why he's naive and bad at it. He'll join up with Mando to restore Mandalore to it's formal glory and he'll find his tribe again.

    • Backroad Junkie
      Backroad Junkie 3 months ago +2

      Fett will join the Mudhorn Clan. That's why we had to catch up on what Din's been doing. This is how Fett will get his tribe, not with the Crime Lords on Tatooine. (That doesn't mean he has to give up the position of crime boss, lol.)
      The Mudhorn Clan is the clan the Armorer declared Din and Grogu to be in the finale of S1. If Din does rule Mandalore, others will probably follow.

  • pknutt arlott
    pknutt arlott 3 months ago +48

    The whole timeline changed at the end of rebels, when Ezra pulled Ahsoka out of combat with Vader, preventing her death. Because she is alive she is able to direct Mando to that planet with the force beacon. So Luke can come and save them. In The Mandalorian when Luke shows up imagine what would have happened without Luke. Every body dies and Grogu becomes a lab rat to make Snoke.

      What if Snoke is Grogu? He is the force from within stollen from Grogu in a very dark way and Snokes body is deformed from the process. Which in turn ended up killing Grogu. There’s something to think about. Lol

  • Keepironman14
    Keepironman14 3 months ago +18

    1:35 it's called a training saber. Part of their training long before they make their own involves using training sabers. This means that once they are able to make their sabers they will be relatively proficient and not slice off their own skin like mando does.
    Training sabers are capable of combat but are low power, instead of high temp beams that burn through objects. It is more akin to a taser effect when hit, and in higher skill lvls could cause burns.
    Lightwhips are actually of similar power output (however have long and flexible 'ropelike' beams)
    I have a book somewhere that talks about all kinds of jedi based content not shared within the films. Even details on how force sight really works once you are well trained (it follows a order 66 survivor)

  • Nils Jessen
    Nils Jessen 3 months ago +4

    I don’t think that normal lightsabers have this problem with the ‚weight‘. Seeing how Cad Bane wields them in the clone wars for example. I feel like it’s just this thing with the dark saber and ‚being worthy‘ or being able to take on the huge burden that comes with the sword.

    I'd love it if the "Mandalorian Armorer" ended up being Gar Saxon's old trusty majordomo ROOK KAST. If so, it would give me a really incredible payoff to know that both Ahsoka and Rook - enemies during the Clone Wars - BOTH had a hand in helping Mando on his current journey. [I could see her adoption of the "No Helmet Removal"-rule as part of her conversion to her new fanaticism.]

  • alaustin

    My problem with the speeder gang is your exact problem with ‘too close to real life in Star Wars’ in England. The fact they are called the mods, have vespa style speeders with tons of mirrors and a couple of the gang even dress like mods. All we need is The Who playing to top it off. It’s way too on the nose but I guess US audiences wouldn’t notice it as much as UK ones do

    • Jared Wilbanks

      @TJ Wilson exactly. When the water owner said about some gang with body mods terrorising his business, I thought “these are gonna be some badasses”. Instead we got good looking human (thought at least a few would be aliens) teenagers with crispy clean speeders. That ‘fight’ with krrsantan was terrible too. They all stood around him taking turns and he just stood there in the middle, taking it, rather than fucking them all up. I’m so gutted about this series. I feel this storyline should’ve been like season 3/4. I don’t want to see what boba did after he was a badass. With it being the book of boba fett, I thought we’d get stand-alone chapters with his ‘best bounty’s’ not just one chapter where he’s old and changes about himself what everyone grew to love about the character

      This not only fell flat with me because it seemed so out of place in the series and universe, but also because of the lack of sense it makes. They tell Boba they can't find work, yet they somehow have tricked out speeders that are shiny and new looking, along with a bunch of mods to their bodies that undoubtedly cost money. Where did all that stuff come from if they aren't working? We're also supposed to believe that these punks on cheesy speeders are supposed to be trained fighters as well? Good enough to deal with a Gladiator Wookie? I don't think so. The chase through town was the worst as well. They tried to make it look fast, but it felt sooooo slow. It was so boring. This episode almost had me turning off the series.

  • theodore suhardja

    I personally wondered why they would have a centric Mando episode in a Season that is not his own. Not that I am complaining or anything, is just that I find it very odd. While I wouldn't change anything of the episode, I feel like they could have put in Boba's Perspective on what is happening with Mando.
    Maybe he argues with his members on bringing in Mando into the team as his muscle. Maybe he could be tracking/spying on Mando's movement by Holographic-shenanigans, and then we end the episode same way. That way it gives us intrigued on what was Mando was doing, which then can be explained with this episode as the first episode of Season 3, syncing both scenes at the same time.
    Kind of like, How Marvel fans are syncing in Kang's feeling of the multiverse being open, with Wanda's transformation as the scarlet witch, Venom being in the MCU, Spiderman breaking Stephen's Spell, etc. I don't know but that is just my personal opinion...

    This was one of the best episodes I’ve watched to date. I loved it! The Boba Fett shows have been pretty meh 😒. This one with Mando was amazing! I loved how they spent so much time talking about the dark saber, the Mandalorians and the mechanical aspects of his new ship. It was like an episode made for hardcore fans who discuss this type of things at length. just amazing! Then Mando having to fly commercial, hilarious!

      @the OCTAHEDRON yeah, I think I’d be more interested in watching Boba Fett before he fell into the sarlac pit. The older, wiser, kinder Boba Fett isn’t how I’d ever pictured him. Maybe the new episodes will show him being more of the badass that he was in Empire and RTOJ.

      What an absurd thing to say for multiple reasons.
      Firstly John Favreau has been writing the Boba Fett episodes as well as the Mandalorian, and they have been piss poor on the whole. George Lucas wrote and directed the prequels and they were poor as well.
      Secondly, who has ever written a star wars film without being a fan?
      Thirdly while the Mandalorian has been a decent show, it's hardly great. Only 1 character has any real depth, it has limited world building and it relies on nostalgia much of the time.

      Bryce Dallas Howard was the director, Jon Favreau and Noah Kloor have written all the episodes so far. If I recall people thought the first episode of the mandalorian she directed (Sanctuary) was too slow. And the second episode she directed (the heiress) was pretty alright. These are all the same people from the mandalorian essentially, nothings changed.

    I thought it was interesting that in the fight for the dark saber, Din Djaren let go of the dark saber and became a much better fighter. The weight of the dark saber made it more difficult to fight hand hand to hand combat. I think that will come back. The other prediction is that in order for the dark saber to become lighter you need the dark side of the force just like the light saber uses to good side of the force. Dark Saber vs Light Saber. The Darkside versus the Lightside. Good vs Evil....

      Sabine used it to the same effect as a Jedi saber, not to say this is a bad observation, but it is most likely incorrect, the saber has a mind

    15:27 Made me think about the opening scene of Jurassic Park with the raptor in the cage.

In the episode she directed in Season 1 of The Mandalorian, she made an AT-ST act as a T-Rex also.

    20:12 - "I don't like it when places in Star Wars are too close to places we experience in real life" - I agree. I hate it too; it's one of the biggest failings of Star Wars for me, especially for non-Americans, since they also tend to be really _American_ places, like diners and sports bars, making it not just reminiscent of modern day, but of a very specific modern day place.

      @Danklord420 it actually makes sense, 'from a certain point of view'. Mando is already there, so why not ask a Jedi master to teach him how to properly use a Jedi weapon? Option B, ask Ahsoka. The cool thing about asking Luke is our connection with our hero and at the same time, we could see the beginning of his school and a glimpse of his new students, including Grogu and even a little money shot of Leia in training.

    Another thing I remembered while watching this is how Bo mentioned that his clan was a group of zealots that were mired in the old ways. Seems to me that during the battle and excommunication that maybe he finally realized he was on the wrong side of the mandalorian sects. . .

    “Losing Grogu has made him more brutal” Perhaps. But later in the episode we learn that the sabre is cursed and that the bearer of the weapon becomes more bloodthirsty. Could the first scene where Mando splits his target in half be a sign of that bloodthirst/curse instead?

    When Peli first shows Mando the N-1 she says "I know she doesn't look like much" much like how Han Solo says, "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid."
    And when Mando plugs the hose in to charge, it makes a suction "thud" sound reminiscent to Vader's helmet being put on in Empire. 🤘🏻

    When Kanan was training Sabine in rebels he mentioned that the more you connect with the darksaber it becomes lighter. So maybe this is why he feels it heavy

    • trevorlane
      trevorlane 3 months ago

      @Jecht Auron Kanan put some insight into the Darksaber (which is a further explanation from TCW: The Gathering) "Energy constantly flows through the crystal. You're not fighting with a simple blade as much as you are directing a current of power. Your thoughts, your actions, they become energy. They flow through the crystal as well, and become a part of the blade." The way sabers generally have been described seems like an ordinary sword that quickly gains outward force and unwieldiness similar to a leafblower that pushes out more and more air. Given that force users have significant training controlling and harnessing thoughts and feelings, they have an advantage controlling that energy amplification.

    • Mario Rodriguez

      @trevorlane Filoni and Favreau are trying to depend less on the Jedi in their Star Wars universe. Mandalorians prove that you don't have to be born with a bacteria infection that makes you a space wizard, to be a badass. Mandalore went toe-to-toe with the Jedi for generations.

    • AlEz TairIo
      AlEz TairIo 3 months ago +1

      Yeah, I think he really hasn't comprehended the literal and metaphorical weight that the Darksaber bestows upon its user. He misses Grogu, which makes him distracted, and I don't think he sees the saber as a "responsibility" and more so as another weapon. That's why instead of planning on leading how to retake Mandalore, he instead went back to his old ways. He hasn't fully grasped what it really means to be a Mandalorian despite meeting others like Bo Katan and Boba Fett.
      Which is why the saber feels heavy to him.
      That's just my take though.

    • lifeinjersey
      lifeinjersey 3 months ago +3

      @trevorlane I don't think so if that were the case then Moff Gideon wouldn't have been able to use it like he did. Its all thr state of mind.
      Mando currently is very conflicted and confused with everything. He's grown to love Grogu and removed his helmet twice for him. He now wields the Darksaber which he won through combat against the imperial officer that destroyed Mangalore. He is trying to go back to his old bounty hunting life but he can't. He's met other Mandalorians that remove their helmets and who are trying to reclaim their home. So Mando is probably conflicted about what to do. He never cared about the dark saber only Grogu but now he has this huge responsibility and target on his back. The blade is heavy for Din because Din doesn't really know what to do. Should he keep the blade and be a bounty hunter or does he rise up and rally all the Mandalorians and retake their home

    I definitely think this could've been the opener for mando season 3, thus episode should've started with mando and the mechanic and fennec recruiting him. The backstory could start ep 3 bringing him to where he meets fenneck again. It seemed to all but halt the Boba story

    Ypu missed the concept art where they accidentally drew him with the disrupted rifle. The younglings training with lightsabers had the blocker helmets on, meaning they were already connected to the will of the lightsabers. Also attachments wouldn't be banned in the new jedi, as luke was against that rule specifically.

    Best stand alone episode I have ever seen in the SW universe. Tied perfectly together like the cloth used for Grogus armor. There is still some questions if Dar Jin is possibly a Jedi that doesn't know it because he is trying too hard to be something he is not (a major theme here in Bobba as well) Anakin parallel with the building and flying like episode I. It's a long shot but not fully outside the realm of possibility since we don't really know his childhood aside from being rescued by mandalorians.

    1:29 I don’t believe that this was mentioned in any of the shows, but in a book that talks about all kinds of fun details of the Jedi tells that the sabers that younglings start their training with use a crystal and saber that make it less dangerous. Meaning that if it touched skin it would be a mild burn, like you get from touching a hot pan. Might leave a scar but nothing serious.
    I got this from the book, don’t yell at me if you don’t like it.

    I was utterly SHOCKED to see a Ringworld in this episode (not a Dyson Sphere as those envelop the star like the shell around an egg). It's one of those things that are so enormous in concept that I would have expected to see it before now.

      Although, because the Ringworld is so mind-bogglingly huge, anything you depict there that isn't taking place at the rim/edge just looks like it's on a perfectly flat planet with a weird arch in the sky.

  • Lisamarie LiGreci-Newton

    Hmm, interesting - I have the opposite reaction to stuff like the butcher shop. Yeah, it's this fantastical galaxy with space wizards, but they gotta eat too. I love when we get to see those totally mundane things in the middle of the Star Wars universe, which to me helps give it that 'lived in' feeling instead of EVERYTHING being sleek and space age-y.
    I totally watched this just to see if anybody recognized the futhark on the fighter and could ID it. I've also heard a theory that Obi-Wan used it to bring the twins back to Tatooine (I'm not sure we ever see what ship he brought) and maybe it will even show up in Kenobi. At any rate, I grew up with/loved the prequels and so seeing the N-1 race through the Boonta Eve track just delighted me.
    My hot take: Bo-Katan is no more worthy to lead Mandalore than Death Watch. She seemed perfectly fine to go along with Death Watch and Maul until Maul used their own rules against them and killed their leader, and THEN she couldn't stand by it. Perhaps by the time we see her in Rebels she's had some time to think things over but I never really loved her. That is actually a fascinating theory about the Armorer being one of the pro-Maul Death Watch though. I kind of wonder if Din is going to find some new way entirely because there's actually a lot about Mandalorian culture (especially Death Watch) that is a little problematic and when your whole system is just based on who can win a fight it's never going to be stable. And I'm wondering if it will all tie in to Boba's desire to build a tribe because of his time with the Tuskens, or even show Luke's Jedi having a differing view of attachment (if we go there).
    I loved this episode, although I also love the main storyline of Book of Boba Fett too - it's telling a different type of story, and that's okay for me too. I agree sometimes the proportion of flashbacks has been a little weird but I still really like everything I'm seeing and ultimately I am hoping for some connections to something like Crimson Dawn/Qi'ra in the climax.

    12:45 I think non stop service here could also mean that the goes straight to Tatooine without any stop
    Depending where the ring planet is situated, passing through Tatooine is maybe faster or cheaper, and the spaceport over there is just a transition to other cruiser company going elsewhere

    Had no one put together the fact that the Astro Droid compartment on Din Jarin’s new N1 was hollowed out, and will make an excellent compartment for Grogu? I think this signals that Grogu and the Mandalorian will be reunited in the next season. Also, if not, then why make all the fuss about the gift he had made for Grogu? Pretty sure we will see them together again next season.

      I think also Luke and Grogu ate one Daggobah and will stay their and train in silence. In can happen the Mando go their too and Luke say him he can teach him use that Blade!
      But i think Mando is no one Episode off and come in Ep 7!
      I dont mind ep 5 was a mando episode mando season has also ep 5 who ahsoka 6 boba and 8 was the highlight luke return so i am okay we see what Mando is doing. And also people season 3 will maybe come in 2023 its okay we get one mando episode!

    Yeah I loved the episode, but definitely caught myself wondering why I was getting a Mandolorian episode in the middle of “The Book of Boba”. Great stuff to see, but it begs the question, was someone on the production crew or an actor on Boba sick? Did they have a Covid outbreak and needed to fill in material with something else and they had this 1st episode of Mando ready to go? It was just odd placement, but I’m happy to watch as I love Mando so much more. Boba is a solid show, its just very different in pacing than Mando. I feel like it needs to go darker and we need to see Boba as more of a Gangster, more of a serious threat, as a-posed to this drawn out back story that is really just not that exciting or entertaining so far. Idk, maybe it will be like “Rouge One” and the last 90 seconds will be the best thing we’ve seen all year, but I’m not holding my breath, hell, we just had a fight with Black Krass, and it was just okay. Better fight coordinator for the next one I hope.

    In my mind, I say they must be setting us up for some wild action and splitting off into vastly different stories because the introductions and flashbacks is almost exhausting. So much so that when I saw The platinum knight Mando hit the screen I was elated. I have watched this episode more times in less then 24hrs then I have any episode of either Mandalorian or Boba Fett. When Mando is working on the start fighter with his awesome mechanic I can not help but be transported to times of hanging with best friends in school. I can't say enough about the feel good moments. I would go on but I already know I will be teased for my lack of knowledge of star wars. This is the way!

    I strongly believe that when mando gets to the Jedi training temple where grogu is, it will be the same time when Ben solo destroys it. Definitely a season 3 ending scene. And it’s mandos task to save grogu from the knights of ren. Either he wins or grogu dies, since we don’t see him in the sequels. Interesting theory

      Slight problem with that - Mandolorian and Boba Fett shows are set in year 9 ABY, so nine years after A New Hope and 5 years after Return of the Jedi. Even if Han and Leia got busy pretty much immediately, Ben Solo is at most 4 years old in this era. I think it's safe to assume that Favreau and FIloni won't be touching the mess that is the sequel trilogy material in any way more than throw-away Easter Eggs and occasionally re-using makeup or props.
      It feels like most of the new DIsney Star Wars material is set well before the disastrous Sequel Era so they can just ignore it. I'm not silly enough to think they'll go to the effort of changing the timeline to wipe the sequels out, they'll just mostly ignore them and stay in that pre-sequel timeline.

    For me, when mando is telling the bd droid to move higher and its not listening, it reminded me of iron man 1 with tonys droid DUMe. and because its jon favreau I don't think that's too far off

      @Andrey Paes I’d say a kid can be a child of any age, as long as one of their parents are alive.

      That Starfighter flight scene is also reminiscent of the same movie when Tony flew in his Mark II armor in that chrome finish, fly by with a kid in sight, and then later was intercepted by two pilots

      @Weather Report A kid? I'm 30 and sometimes it still happens when I give my father a hand. Lol

    I love how Mando said "Wizard" after finishing the podrace track in the N1 fighter. Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are making me like things I didn't expect to.

    The detail is so cool. That part where Din is talking and asking the light to be shined reminded me of that scene where Grogu is working on the wires is S2.

    I so much love the scene in which Din Jarin delivers the bounty to his employers, that from the moment the bag comes on screen, till he walks out of the elevator. That the entire scene was filmed in 1 single shot! Showing of how powerful and versatile the Volume is. Havinf an animated background making it look like the elevator goes up and down. If you would look closely to the low lip at the beginning of the scene, is the same as the low lip in the bar/dancehall. and that de camera does not turn right before he steps in the elevator the first time (going up), loops around to show the bar that was behind the camera at the start of the scene. But when back down at the end of the scene Din walks into the same space that was the bar and passed the camera. Some really use of set, camera direction and the volume to animate an make it look like Din moves on two separate storeys.
