OK, everyone's probably seen it, but since I couldn't find any posts here... Here it is. Looks very nice.

Meh, still not interested in the least.

I'll probably check out the first few episodes but I'm not optimistic, despite Filoni being involved

Its not just Filoni, also Taika Waititi and Jon Favreau, two very talented people. Filoni is an excellent storyteller and with Favreau I think could provide the same quality oversight that made Feige and the MCU so successful, arguably more successful than the rest of the live action Star Wars stuff the last few years.

I'm optimistic about the series. I loved Clone Wars and Rebels, and I'm a fan of Westerns like High Noon, Silverado, and the TV series The Rifleman. But I just haven't had the time to watch Resistance beyond like the 4th episode, so I'm hopeful The Mandalorian will keep me entertained enough until the Marvel series' hit D+.

The problem I'm seeing so far that has me so pessimistic is everything I've seen so far (not much admittedly) is focusing so much on the setting and action, but so little on the character of the titular Mandalorian. Considering how close we are to release, this seems concerning (I mean, have we ever even heard him speak yet?).

Of course, this could be some marketing guy trying to be all mysterious, which is why I'll give it at least a few episodes to see if it reveals some interesting characters. I'm just not at all excited about what we've been shown so far.

This looks awesome.

The short clip that got released, looked great too.

I am over the new trilogy, but this looks very good. The people working on this project are incredible.

Dave Filoni really cares about the brand.

Hmmm. not sure what to make of this at this point, doesn't show enough of what it means to be a Mandalorian. I find it hard to believe only one person from Sundari on Mandalore would be enough to create a complete impression of what a Manalorian is about. The most recent impression from the clone wars is quite skewed in a lot of ways that matter because deathwatch, while they are unofficially considered mandalorians are infact terrorists and it was made even more a joke when Maul overtook the group from Pre Vizla, turning what little image and notority about the group from tough brutal warriors to a gang of killers for hire to the strongest leader.

I often wonder what the official take is on this most elusive part of star wars lore regarding what Manalorians are like. I'd give it a watch when possible and make some sort of impression about it at that point.

You haven't seen Rebels I take it?

We see much more "traditional" Mandalorians there.

At this point, I'm not sure we should be expecting any sort of deep-dive into Mandalorian culture. The series looks to have a strong Western vibe, so I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a 'Man With No Name' sort of situation / trope, where the main character is simply widely known (maybe even only known, even to close allies and the audience) as "The Mandalorian" as part of his mystique / notoriety -- the way, for example, the main character in the Western-influenced El Mariachi / Desperado / Once Upon A Time In Mexico trilogy is only known as "El Mariachi".

Heck, it may end up being the case that he's not even a "real" Mandalorian, but is just known as that because he uses Mando armor and weapons.

Nothing from a main point of view with tid bits about scattered groups and what little culture there is and Sabine isn't an actual Mandalorian. have you actually been paying attention to what you actually seen in rebels i take it?

That is my concern right there so thanks for spelling it out in greater detail. I'd like to think it would be about a group of mandalorians and their way of life, and not because as you said, it is some guy in a suit causing trouble and everyone around him thinks him to be a Mandalorian.

How is Sabine not a Mandalorian? She's a member of Clan Wren, part of House Vizsla, grew up on Mandalore, and was trained by Mandalorian Protector Fenn Rau (in addition to whatever Mando training she received prior to or concurrent with her Imperial Academy training).

On the topic of the trailer itself -- I think it looks great and I'm very excited for this series. The production value alone looks amazing for a series, the trailer looks like it could be showing scenes from a AAA movie. Plus it looks like they've got a lot of fantastic talent involved both on screen (Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Werner Herzog) and behind the scenes (Dave Filoni, Jon Favreau, Taika Waititi (who is directing at least one episode in addition to playing IG-11)).
