    What in the world?

    First of all, Pedro Pascal isn’t Black. Second, he was one of the standout actors in season 4 of Game of Thrones and was the consistent lead in Netflix’s Narcos for the first three seasons. He was one of the ensemble in the film Triple Frontier, along with Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, and Garrett Hedlund. He has a key role in the forthcoming Wonder Woman sequel, and Favreau hand-picked him for the lead in this.

    So he has certainly earned the role beyond being an Chilean-American.

    Unless you mean Carl Weathers, shown early in the trailer, who is part of the cast, but…his career speaks for itself, as does Giancarlo Esposito’s. Do you really think they were only “plugged in” due to their race?

    Did I miss an LGBT reveal in the trailer for this series?

    At least The Mandalorian looks cool, and in the same vein as Rogue One. And having Ewan reprise his role as Obi-Wan in a series sounds promising.
    Ewan's portrayal of Obi Wan in the prequels is absolutely the highlight of those three movies. He really did the character justice and fleshed out what Alec Guiness started in the OT.

    I was looking forward to a stand alone movie ala Solo, but a series with him as Obi Wan is just as good.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Me too. And I was also looking forward to a Solo sequel, but that fucking idiot Rian Johnson and his POS movie helped to sabotage any chance Solo had. But a series will be cool I think. Guinness is the most accomplished actor out of everyone ever associated with SW, and Ewan pulled off a fine young version of him.

    Funny, Lucas just got too smart for his own good. The best description of the Force ever given by any character is when Kenobi first tells Luke about it in his hut on Tattooine in A New Hope. Short and to the point and not cluttered up with "midichlorians" or any other needless technical mumbo jumbo.

    At :28, that’s Carl Weathers, a costar. He’s been acting for forever. He was a movie star. :39 is a fighter and was in Deadpool. :41 I’m uncertain that’s a main character.

    The main character, the lead, is Pedro Pascal.

    One of the best scenes in the franchise:



    I love Obi Wan's nod to Chewie after he just fucked these two guys up.

    "Yeah, I'm old, but don't fuck with me."

    The only person worth a shit in the prequels was Ewan McGregor. Even with the horrible dialogue he had to deal with.

    Yep. The ORIGINAL version where Han shoots and Greedo doesnt even get a shot off. Most of the time, A New Hope is my favorite of all the films. Just has that gritty feel about it, which fits the narrative that the Empire rules the galaxy with an iron fist and everyone has to fight and scrap for everything they have, which is why all the people's belongings and ships, etc, are all dingy and banged up. A stark contrast to how everything was shiny and new and people were prospering in Episodes I and II before the Dark Side fell upon the galaxy.

    Im actually really looking forward to the Kenobi series. If Ewan hadnt been cast to reprise his role, it wouldve been one more thing to be pissed at Disney about.

    I just read the word “midichlorians” in this thread. I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    I would say he and Ian McDiarmid as Palpatine were the best in the prequels. Ewan really did a good job of speaking and sounding like a young Alec Guinness.

    It still pisses me off at how wasted Samuel Jackson was as Mace Windu. That shouldve been a badass character for hin to play.

    I'm not sure how anyone couldnt like and remember Carl Weathers from the Rocky movies and Predator. Always really liked him, and it will be cool to see him in this series.
