I'd be happier about Rosario Dawson's casting as Ahsoka Tano if she wasn't currently being sued for transphobic assault of an employee.

I hadn't heard about that. Whether it is true or a false allegation, I hope justice prevails. Maybe Disney's policy changed after firing the GotG director over old joke tweets in very poor taste resurfacing, and then later rehiring him.

Remember when the Mandalorian went to find the Child (and met IG-11)? Remember all of those guards there? There were not just 4 or 5, there was something like 20 or so armed guards defending that child.

Did the Child hire all of those "guns"? I highly doubt it. So who hired and paid all of those gunmen? Why were there SO MANY guards protecting the Child? And if someone other than the Child hired those gunmen, would that someone still be out there and be willing to have MORE guns come after the Mandalorian to retrieve the Child?

That, to me, is a huge unanswered question about the whole series that I feel could really be expanded upon in the next series.


That is a really big question, and I can't believe it didn't occur to us. Mind if I bring that up as listener feedback in the next episode?

Feel free to bring it up. It's something that has always stuck in my head, more than anything else in the series. It's a gigantic, invisible ronto in the room, in my opinion. But it also offers so much hidden potential to work into something else.

Yeah I wondered if there are more than one person interested in misusing his abilities. Or, if The Mandalorian killed a bunch of Republic security contractors, or what.

I'm guessing it would fit the tone of the show better if this was a band of pirates that was hoping to hold him for ransom to the New Republic. Complete speculation of course.

The big question will be: Will he have facial hair or not.
Every time he has facial hair (usually mustache but sometimes goatee) he's a bad guy. When he's mostly clean shaven, he's a good guy.

Still, it'll be good to see him in the show!

Basically all the official artists tended to start out making fan art, so the difference is more or less just whether Lucasfilm is paying them.

And even then, not always. There are a few notorious instances of Lucasfilm using uncredited and unpaid-for fan art. A whole bunch of fractalsponge's stuff, for instance.

Hopefully this guy will get paid to do it at some point.

Shocked I was not aware of that. Dragon, you are a plethora of knowledge and insight to Star Wars. Do you have any more details? Was it a case of (or did Lucasfilm later claim) that it was an 'Oops, it is so good we thought it was ours' type of thing? Or was it a 'Hey, we let you play in our yard so it should go both ways' type of thing?

Pretty neat, but it's missing some things that were shown in the show. The various areas that the Child seemed to hide in when trying to evade Zero.

Still cool, though!

Thank you for sharing these. I watched the first video and most of the second. I have the Imperial Handbook and Rebel Files books and had no idea because I don't spend a lot of time looking at the details of most fan art. A paid artist passing off fan-created art as his own (even if photoshopped) is wrong. Conversely, there are also examples of Lucasfilm paying fan artists to make official versions of their art, like the mapmaker Modi who did a lot of work on The Essential Atlas. I hope the same happens for the Razor Crest cross-section artist.

Wow. I had no idea it was that bad.
