Well, The Mandalorian takes place only like 5 years after Return of The Jedi. So, it has mostly the same look as old Star Wars. So that may be why it feels more on the nose.
I like Force Awakens well enough and liked Last Jedi even a little more. However, the new coat of paint doesn’t completely read, for me. I think Rogue One is the best of the Disney Star Wars, so far. And then add in that due to its chronological placing—it looks like Star Wars. So yeah, I like Rogue One best. And The Mandalorian looks great.
*Also, I thought Solo was doing the Firefly thing, quite a bit. I liked that movie, too. but wished they had done something other than a train heist. Because that was kind off crossing the line for me, on the shades of Firefly.
Well they had the Starkiller Base in Force Awakens so I’m not sure why their seems to be some widespread negativity about seeing a piece of a death star in the new trailer.
