Mandalorian Fan Service

The trailer for The Mandalorian is out. It looks like the Star Wars movie we should have gotten.
It isn’t about Skywalkers. It isn’t about a galaxy spanning war(although there is evidence of one). IG-88 makes an appearance.

Is this fan-service? If so, is that a bad thing?
On its own, I think it’s good, but Disney has a way of sprinkling fan service around to get us to eat shit.
I want to believe this will be good. This time will be better.
I feel like I’m in an abusive relationship.

Turns out, it?s IG-11. Like it makes a difference.

I never got the excitement over Boba Fett. I get this isn't him, but Mandalorians in general are just a way to leech off of the character's vibe. That said...

Star Wars is different things to different people. To me, they were, and should be, westerns set in space. Then the prequel trilogy happened and they became adventure cartoons in space (with lots of dry exposition in between set pieces). The new trilogy aims to be a comedic action series. What else should we expect from Disney at this point?

I don't hate the new films, but they're several negative mutations from where they started. If The Mandalorian can recapture the western vibe, I'm all for it.

Of course, I love space wizards too, and I'm very interested in what they plan to do with Ewan...
