Why am I so f***ing stupid and gullible :lol:. That was ace.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

the evil rey bit has annoyed me like, it'll just be another force dream or some s****
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Rule number 1 of Disney trailers: If they tease it in the trailer, that's probably not what's actually happening.

Dark-side Rey? Most likely a vision or a misdirect.  If the Return of the Jedi trailer was released today you'd see a hooded Luke force choking a guard & probably conclude that he was going to fall to the dark side, except in the final film it's nothing more than a new wardrobe & a display of his growing powers.  Someone on Reddit has suggested that it might be a vision by Kylo about what she could become rather than anything to do with Rey herself.

There's also that nifty-looking fleet of Star Destroyers.  Observant nerds (like myself) will notice that they're the old Imperial style ship & not the new First Order design.  Either that's a scene from a flashback or they'll be part of a hidden/forgotten fleet that ends up fighting for the Resistance against the First Order.  The C3PO part of the trailer?  Probably not C3PO, just another protocol droid.

Disney love this s***.  They release a trailer that doesn't really give too much away but gets people talking about it & building hype up.  Even Rogue One where we've known the general themes of the story since the title crawl of A New Hope they managed to put together a trailer that had people theorising about everything & even then some of the scenes from the trailer never made it to the final film.

The Mandalorian has to be about Fett.  Can't think of any other reason why he's just "The Mandalorian" when all the other characters' names have been announced, plus a famous character like that would be a huge draw to Disney+.

Does it matter that Fett wasn't an actual Mandalorian, but a clone? Genuine question, I dunno the logistics of this!

Boba isn't even the clone of a Mandalorian.  Jango just wore the armour he wasn't actually from there.

Even if it is a misdirect it's still f***ing stupid to put it in the trailer IMO. Kills any suspense that could have been built up by that scene.

I see Disney+ isn't coming to the UK until some time in 2020 so piracy is the only way to see 'The Mandalorian' in 2019 outside the USA.

I tried to explain to people at work about how Boba Fett wasn't Mandalorian but that is traditional Mandalorian armour and that's why the new bloke looks like Boba Fett. Wasn't easy, didn't make me look cool.

Quote
Disney+ will be launching in the US on November 12th, 2019, as well as in Canada and The Netherlands, with Australia having to wait until November 19th.

Apparently the UK launch some time in 2020 is to do with licensing. Disney has licensed a lot of the content they own (Marvel, Star Wars, The Simpsons, etc) to UK providers (Sky/NOW TV, Amazon, Netflix, etc). Those providers have paid for that content so I guess Disney will have to wait until the licences expire. For example I see Sky/NOW TV have all the Star Wars films until the 10th of August 2020.

I'd love to know how much you need to spend on subscriptions now to get a decent quality and range of content.
