Bryce Dallas Howard was the latest name to take the director’s chair for Episode 4 of “The Mandalorian,” titled “Sanctuary,” following in her father Ron Howard’s footsteps into the “Star Wars” universe.
The episode itself felt very self-contained, as the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) and The Child aka Baby Yoda landed on a remote forest-covered planet to lay low for a while. However, predictably enough trouble soon found the two heroes, firstly in the form of Rebel Shock Trooper-turned-mercenary Cara Dune (Gina Carano), and then taking the shape of a rampaging At-St and a hoard of raiders.
But despite all the action and emotional drama, this episode, like each one before it, was stolen by the adorable little scamp that is Baby Yoda. The memes were strong before,
Avengers: Endgame is currently the biggest movie in box office history. It achieved this feat earlier this year and Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are still shocked by what they saw in theaters. Since the movie is now available digitally and on Blu-ray, fans have been able to put the movie under the microscope and even make their own memes and videos. Now, one crazy fan has
Embedded below, the two images depict a regular Baby Yoda ($8.99) and the 10″ super-sized model ($29.99), which also features the little Force user sporting a smile (perhaps he finally got control of the music settings onboard The Mandalorian‘s ship).
There’s currently no mention of a release date – Funko’s recent Twitter post simply contained a Gif of Baby Yoda sipping on his drink. The very same Gif that has already spawned a thousand memes. And yes, this is sure to be the beginning of a Star Wars merch drop, as the Powers That Be at Lucasfilm and Disney rush to cash-in on The Mandalorian‘s adorable, bug-eyed companion.

In many ways, the most interesting thing in “Sanctuary” is something we don’t quite see: Mando’s face, when he takes off his helmet in privacy to enjoy some soup without breaking the code of his tribe. He has already explained to Omera (Julia Jones) — the kind and pretty widow who is playing host to him, Baby Yoda, and their new friend Cara Dune (Gina Carano

Vanity Fair reporter Anthony Breznican writes that at a recent “Mandalorian” screening the series’ co-writer and co-director Dave Filoni revealed that Herzog acted with contempt on set upon the CGI Baby Yoda discovery. After a take using the puppet, the crew got ready for another take without the puppet “in case they decided during postproduction that the puppet wasn’t
Jon Favreau May be a Big Part of the Star Wars Universe in the Future
The Sith Troopers are only seen for a brief moment in The Rise of Skywalker TV spot, but they look formidable. It's unclear where their battle scenes were shot, but it looks like they are on a Star Destroyer like the Resistance is spotted on in previous promotional material. As for The Knights of Ren, they are spotted in a desert terrain,
It’s now the trend that studios chase indie filmmakers after a big breakout. But Johnson said, “Personally I’m grateful that environment didn’t exist when I made ‘Brick’ because I would’ve jumped into it. I’m glad I paved my own path where I made my own films. Today if I had put ‘Brick’ out and I was 30, I’m sure the calls would’ve come in.”
Johnson waited three years after “Brick” to release his follow-up project, “The Brothers Bloom,” a $20 million indie that flopped hard at the box office but nonetheless remains a cult favorite. Johnson added that it wasn’t until his 2012 time-hopping science-fiction film “Looper,
The most obvious reason that the helmeted hero is definitely not Boba Fett? The Mandalorian takes place a few years after Return of the Jedi, in which the antagonistic bounty hunter is killed during Luke and company's escape from Jabba the Hutt. Boba Fett is pretty clearly killed without a likely means of escape: his death comes by falling into the maw of the Sarlacc. Being consumed by the Sarlacc is a pretty solid death sentence, and there's no known way out.
Compounding the case for "not Boba Fett
Despite not being about Boba Fett, the lead character of the show shares his design and is also a bounty hunter. On top of that, eagle-eyed viewers noticed a rather familiar-looking character lurking in the background during the first episode.
Now, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, The Mandalorian producer Dave Filoni has teased that something may be in the offing, saying:
“I mean, there’s always possibilities, I don’t like to limit our storytelling in any way and, who knows? It would
With his massive eyes and tiny Jedi cloak, the mini Yoda — who is a member of Yoda’s species and not Yoda himself — has spawned myriad memes and thinkpieces on his relative cuteness. So why are we all so enamored with a wrinkly green puppet, known on the show as “The Child”? According to evolutionary psychologist Dr. Daniel J. Kruger, the answer is
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, JJ Abrams, the director of ‘Rise,’ talks about the scale of the new film, as well as the fans’ biggest question — will he completely undo everything that Rian Johnson did in ‘The Last Jedi?’

We know that the Game of Thrones creators' Star Wars trilogy was canceled. Past that, at least for now, we have precious few answers. But a new report helps to shed some light on the creative direction. Specifically, who may be helping when it comes to creative decisions, and it looks like the team behind The Mandalorian will be a big part of that equation.
According to a new report, Jon Favreau, the executive producer and writer of The Mandalorian, as well as Dave Filoni, who serves as a producer/director on the show, will "have a

For the week of Nov. 10-16, “The Mandalorian” — the first live-action series in the Star Wars universe — notched nearly 40 million “demand expressions,” according to research firm Parrot Analytics. In addition, in its first four days, the show had stronger U.S. demand than four of 2019’s biggest streaming originals: Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy,” “When They See Us” and “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” and Amazon Prime Video’s “Good Omens,” per Parrot.
At the same time, “The Mandalorian” registered less than 40% of the demand of Netflix’s supernatural hit “Stranger Things” over the same time period and was behind DC Universe’s live-action “Titans,” which was renewed for season 3 last week, according to the research firm’s data.
The post The Mandalorian cast discuss the new Star Wars show in video interviews and Q&a appeared first on Flickering Myth.
In its series premiere, The Mandalorian came across as fun but slight: a pulpy adventure about a stock anti-hero with a heart of gold, played with minimal dialogue by an expressive actor hidden entirely under a Beskar steel helmet.
If anything, “The Child” — written again by Jon Favreau, and directed by Rick Famuyiwa — should feel slighter. The episode clocks in at only 33 minutes. Unless you’re fluent in Jawa,
