The events of The Mandalorian are supposed to be taking place approximately 5 years after Return of the Jedi. They can't have grizzled "get off my island" Luke Skywalker. I'd heard of what they can do with anti-aging CGI; the result is amazing...and a little scary. :shock:

It wasn't anti-aging CGI - it was another actor

With Mark Hamill's voice and refurbished face. He's in the credits.

I was pretty sure that was his voice even before the credits.

I knew it was him the moment I saw the green lightsaber.

Oh, I was pretty sure it was him when I saw the X-wing. But I was talking about the voice actor.

So, based on the endings (trying not to give anything away)....will the Mandalorian continue?

I have my thoughts....

They claim that there will be a 3rd season, my guess it will run concurrently with The Book of Boba Fett

Motion capture, that's also how they did the digital Tarkin and Leia in Rogue One. In fact, it was the same actor who 'played' Tarkin.
They did the same thing in 'Civil War' to create young Tony Stark, in 'Captain Marvel' to create young Nick Fury and in 'Endgame' to create young Michael Douglas. In fact, Disney seems to have this deiaging technology mastered.

The actor who "played" Luke was Max Lloyd-Jones, the one who "played" Tarkin in Rogue One was Guy Henry.

The difference there is that the "normal" actors played their characters and were digitally de-aged. I don't think Mandalorian Luke was quite up to the same standard, though he certainly looked better than Tarkin.

It's a nice show, and just like the original movies, which mine from Westerns, war and adventure movies, and samurai films and TV.

Motion capture was first used in a meaningful way is the Lord of the Rings trilogy. :fyi:

Which should have also been more of a "Western".

:yes: There was one point where Luke nodded, and it looked like one of those mask things on a stick.

I assume there was some reason Mark Hamill was unable to be on set, a scheduling conflict or something.

I'm assuming with a higher budget they would have done a bit better. Pretty good for TV if you ask me, but in a movie that wouldn't wash

Absolutely. They've done some innovative things with the backgrounds, though. Good stuff.

So they did a good job of describing what went well with the show....see link below.

Now this is a political website, but I didn't find this article really all that political - it just stated by Star Wars got bad, so my intention is NOT to start a political discussion in the least. But this was the interesting quote from the piece, which I though of Doom when I read it:

"The reason The Mandalorian redeemed Star Wars was that for the first time, Star Wars was Star Wars again. It did everything that made the franchise what it was from the beginning. It was a space western that added emotional elements, gritty action, high stakes, and character development that actually made sense." ::):
