You know, after rewatching Rebels, I got to ask.


Do you think the Lothal Sector is like the Bermuda Triangle to the Empire. This sector of the galaxy that has a tendency of destroying your ships and has a high level of weird Force poo poo that occurs around there? Of sure. Ezra isn’t around to direct the animal show, but those Loth-wolves are still active .


One day we will get some backstory on what the deal was with that darn temples history. Or we won’t and the loth-cats shall laugh at our suffering.


Seriously though, Lothal honestly is somehow more weird to me than Mortis in some aspects because at least the Mortis stuffed was only really experienced by other force users. You could honestly make a decent argument that Mortis was just a weird vision.

The Lothal Force stuff is weird in that the mystical force stuff drags everyone, non-force user or not onto it’s wild ride. Its odd to say the least. Not bad,I actually like it. But it’s definitely... different.

According to the Rebels' Finale the expected Imperial attack after Lothal's liberation. My personal theory is that after all the weird poo poo in those reports and what happened to Thrawn no Admiral in the fleet wanted to go near Lothal. Between the weird transdimensional wolves, the space whales, and the living planet that likes to troll you nobody wants that sector near their life or their career.

I don't know, I think it looks great. I think she looks older than what they're saying, more in line with Rebels, but that's my favorite look for her anyway. I may have to pick this up.

Yeah, it's weird. We're roughly two months out from The Mandalorian S2 dropping and we haven't even gotten a teaser. Really, really, hope it's because they were waiting on filming with Dawson to get the Ahsoka footage. If it's true, ending the S2 trailer with an Ahsoka (and old-man Rex?) tease for the button would own so hard.

Lucasfilm has been pretty tightlipped about Rosario's casting. It was only announced she was going to appear in S2 back in March, which was also when they wrapped filming. I could see it being possible that they cast Rosario fairly late in the game and maybe scheduling conflicts prevented her flying out to wheverever they were shooting. Once they wrapped, I'm guessing she couldn't film her scenes/cameo/whatever due to COVID ramping up at the time.

Honestly I'm really hoping they recast her... it feels so gross to have a transphobe playing one of my favourite Star Wars characters.

There’s been semi-credible rumors going around for a while that the Ahsoka/Rex appearances this season may be limited to a single episode or maybe even a single scene as a tease for some future show/project, so it’s possible they had always planned to shoot it fairly late in production.

The interesting thing is Disney has to be aware of the suit and know the potential consequences of "officially" casting her without some kind of make-good.

Or this recent rumored block of shooting was simply because they recast the role, and now they're having to do a bunch of inserts and pickups.

It’s an ongoing lawsuit from a former employee/housekeeper. Sounds like a strange situation where she comes out looking pretty bad, but I don’t think we’ve heard her side of the story.

I think the rumors are that there were shots being filmed specifically for the trailer, which wouldn't be for the series itself (like the shot of Jyn at the end of the Rogue One trailer, which was just something cool Gareth Edwards wanted to shoot, but didn't actually have a place anywhere in the movie)

Also, actors sometimes don't get announced as part of a show's cast until they're in the end credits, especially if it's supposed to be a surprise role or just a cameo. In this case, I wouldn't expect anything about Ahsoka to be confirmed until she actually appears on screen.

A boat! In Star Wars!!!

I wonder if the ice planet is Hoth. There's some smashed up gear behind the Mando in one shot that could be remains of Echo Base. Star Was Explained speculates that its Illum but when we see it as Starkiller base it is less of a ice desert and more like Canada in Febuary.

I don’t even think Sabine is going to be in this season. Even the insane batshit clearly-making-it-up “leakers” rarely mention her. Banks is almost certainly playing some new character.
