I didn't immediately recognize Sasha Banks because I don't watch wrestling anymore but she didn't look like Rosario Dawson and ontop of that she didn't look anything like Ahsoka.

So the sheer amount of people on the internet confusing Rosario Dawson with Sasha Banks and Ahsoka with whomever Banks is playing is blowing my mind.

There's no way that's Ashoka, and I initially dismissed the possibility of it being Sabine but then I realized I was confusing Sabine and Hera and so I guess it could be Sabine. She doesn't really give a Sabine vibe, though.

Would they really do a misstep as big as whitewashing Sabine’s casting?

Why are we assuming she’s “someone”? Odds are she’s just a character they made up for the show.

Is it still whitewashing if you take a role meant for a minority and give it to a different minority? I guess Sabine is coded as Asian and Sasha Banks is black?

FWIW, I don't personally think that character is Sabine.

You’re all thinking too much Prestige TV these people are probably just characters who show up for that episode like half the people in season 1.

There's a couple Romulans? But the prosthetics on them looked pretty meh. Especially the main male Romulan, he looked pretty terrible. And uh...some Borg? But nothing ground breaking there.

Yeah, that's a real big wtf win for Picard. I even liked Picard. Didn't love it, but thought it was pretty good with a lackluster ending. But that award in particular makes no drat sense.

It doesn't. Grace Randolph, the "controversial reviewer" this is coming from, is notorious for being an incredibly nasty person (if her bizarre delivery screeching every line in her videos didn't clue you in) who's done things like say that Kelly Marie Tran and Ruby Rose deserved their social media abuse that led to them deleting social media because she personally didn't like their performances. She's been called out by directors like James Wan and Cathy Yan for spreading false rumors before. There's absolutely zero reason to believe anything that comes out of her mouth.

Trailer thoughts:

The only known living Jedi is Luke Skywalker. I think we're going to spend part of the season retracing Luke's travels through the original movies while Mando tries to track down the Jedi.

The opening scene with the gas giant and the moon could be Yavin IV rising over Yavin. One of the ice planet scenes looks like it has a crashed snowspeeder in the background, so is likely Hoth. The X-Wings look like they're flying through the clouds on Bespin.
