I hope it's Illum.

I guess I'll have to link all my normie friends the Ahsoka Tano and Illum Wookieepedia articles to get them up to speed.

E: Surprising lack of even a brief shot of Giancarlo. Wonder if there's something like a cool helmet affectation or whatever they're saving to reveal.

Looks like it might be Illum with the speeder bikes in the snow, similar to the Imperial trench as seen in jedi fallen order, starkiller base being built.

Starkiller Base being Ilum that has a big trench because they mined out too much kyber is probably the worst addition to new canon imo. Itís just so dumb. Why?

Why not? Of all the things that are dumb in the sequels, I don't see why that stands out at all. They mined up enough crystals to power (presumably) two Death Stars and an entire planet laser. Plus it's a neat visual.

Yeah, another disagreement on the Starkiller=Illum thing. I thought that connection was fairly clever. JJ obviously had no intention to do that, but as a later retcon in-universe it made sense and added some additional depth to both places.

I was thinking of holding off on watching the trailer because I feared it would spoil too much, thankfully it uses a lot of season 1 dialogue and just offers some flavor visual teases.

Illum = Starkiller Base was fine and kind of cool.

Maybe they will do with it what they did with the prequels: Play footsie with some of the cooler aesthetics and plot points without going balls deep into the garbage.

So: Running a FFG Star War game for my kids and naturally they love the Baby.

Thinking it could be kind of neat to make it a "prequel" to the Mandolorian since there's 50 years of Baby History to play with where they are protecting him during the end of the clone wars and or GCW. What are some fun plot points/setpieces I could run with like scissors with that?

It could even be a snowy planet we haven't seen before.

Obviously it won't be a snowy part of a planet that isn't entirely snow-covered.

"This is the way" is this show's "Winter is coming". It's a catchy line that a lot of pop culture exposure will crystallize around, and it's central to the characterization of their main character. They'd be silly not to capitalize on it.

They could always go to a Warhammer planet called Mundus Planus.

Can't visualize how Docks Lady could be Ahsoka, even if they shrank her head tails. Besides, I feel like it would be weird to just drop her front and center in the trailer like that.

Gore Koresh (the cyclops) is a name I hadn't heard teased and I wonder what his deal is. Looks like they've done a good job keeping a lid on everything just like they were able to hide Baby Yoda until the season one premiere.

The cyclops species was bugging me, because it seemed familiar but I couldn't recall if that was even SW or not. Just remembered Myo in the cantina.

Really love how they're mining some of the minor species who give off "Hey, that seems familiar" vibes.

I kinda like the way The Armorer went "This is the way" in the trailer. It had an amused tone that basically said "Tough poo poo, Mando. Code says to reap what you sow."

Isn't that actually her head?

Because I asked about what I thought was her big old stupid hat and got told that by many angry goons.

This is confirmed, itís Sasha Banks. Iím guessing the Rosario Dawson reveal wont happen till near the end of the season and will set up season 3 or her own spinoff show.

Nothing was ever officially announced for both Dawson and Sackhoff's castings as Ahsoka and Bo respectively, but they were both "confirmed" on Deadline, which is one of the media outlets that typically doesn't report unfounded scoops.
