It's as if you have your party of player characters who've have been playing the entire campaign, and in the final showdown they just sit and watch the Gamemaster's awesome non-player character, who just shows up out of the metaplot to kick some ass.
Except the 'you' in this instance is actually the viewer watching for entertainment and who is familiar with Luke Skywalker even before this episode.
Fucking legendary. They could end the series now and I’d be happy and satisfied.
I loved the episode and The Mandalorian is the most fun I've had watching a show since The New Pope. It can be cheesy and dumb but everything about it puts a smile on my face. However....I am a bit worried that F&F are sort of bricking parts of the universe (not that some weren't already broken). We see Luke in the sequels and spend a fair amount of time with him and he NEVER mentions training Grogu. Training a cloned Yoda seems worth a mention. What's weird now is that Grogu did not exist IRL when the sequels were made so of course Luke couldn't mention BUT he does exist in the Star Wars timeline. Does that make sense? The more shows that are created to fill-in time gaps between the prequels, OT, and sequels the worse this problem will get.Anyway, I assume Disney is just one official announcement away from formally handing the Star Wars keys to Favreau and Filoni
After I put my brain back in my skull, I realized that there could be a good size chunk of people watching this who have never seen Star Wars movies before...
This is also the same universe that gave Anakin a padawan that was never mentioned or seen in the movies and is now one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe. Nobody’s ages make sense in this universe either. There’s 19 years between Sith and Hope and somehow Obi-Wan became a very elderly man. Basically none of this matters and it’s just cool.
