Star Wars: The Bad Batch – Trailer ReactionThe Dark Herald
Well it looks better than the Resistance cartoon they did a while back. I can give it that much.
This looks a lot more like Dave Filoni’s comfort zone. I suspect that the reason that Filioni was wedded to Favreau for the Mandalorian was so that he could job-shadow the Iron Man director. After all there is only so much time Jon Favreau will be willing to spend on a TV show. As much as he loves Star Wars, it can NOT pay as well as the backend of a film that scored a billion dollars at the box office.
The purpose of this apprenticeship was probably to teach Dave how to produce live-action. I’ve got my doubts about how good of a manager Filoni ever can be because he is obviously a gamma male.
However, that’s neither here nor there. As I said, this is something Filoni is more at home with. Basically, it’s a dirty dozen style with a five-man band Nakama.
We’ll see if Kathleen Kennedy has done her usual devastating development inserts.
Honestly, I just can’t get excited about Star Wars anymore.
Okay, I’m done here.
