    The Mandalorian (and a discussion of Disney+)

    I consider myself a pretty big Star Wars fan, but I honestly haven't been thinking much about Episode IX or other SW media lately. That said, yesterday I watched the trailer for an upcoming live-action series set to premier in November on the new Disney+ streaming service. It's called The Mandalorian, follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter, seems to have a good cast, and looks dope as hell.



    I expect this thread will sit around quietly until November, but this trailer alone has made me start to seriously consider subscribing to Disney's service.

    That along with Disney's other SW projects, such as the (final!) ending of Clone Wars makes the service tempting. But, I imagine that those shows are the only ones I'd be watching, so I might opt instead to wear an eye patch.

    There are Netflix executives curled up in a ball on the floor quietly weeping at the price for Disney+

    Oh, and Disney is going to fill its streaming service with high quality, expensive Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney family/Pixar content... you know, the same general stuff that has pretty much owned the movie boxoffice for the past few years.

    Bob Iger is coming for all the entertainment money... all of it.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    For what itís worth, Disney will be offering a bundle of Disney+, Hulu (with ads), and ESPN+ for $12.99/month. If you are inclined to use all three services, the monthly cost of the bundle will be cheaper than signing up for all three separately, even with the discounted Disney+ pre-offer.

    Disney+ will not work with Fire TVs... this is a major problem for me. I could use a dongle to connect a computer to my TV but this is a hassle I do not need. I am trying to decide if I am going to punish Disney by not buying their service or punish Amazon by going to Roku. I mean, my Fire stick cost like $30 so it is not like I made some major, lifetime commitment to being a Fire user.

    That's frustrating. I recently bought a Fire stick. I tend to keep a laptop plugged into my TV anyway, so I'll have that option, but I have a feeling I can figure out a way to use Disney+ with Fire. I'll keep y'all apprised.

    I've been rocking the Google Chromecast dongle for about 8 years. Love it.

    Nowadays I've upgraded to a Smart TV with built in Chromecast. Anything my TV doesn't have an app for (mostly just HBO and ESPN) I can stream from tablet or phone.

    Competition with the Amazon streaming service? That seems like a bad move for both parties, and part of the reason I am very much not in favor of the proliferation of content-owner specific streaming services.

    Come on Evans, this is a family site.
    I'm a Disney fanatic, and I too will be waiting for the $12.99 Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle. That's a hell of a bargain in my eyes, and will likely enable me to strip away some other streaming subscriptions. I'm looking at somewhere between $30 and $40(!) in monthly savings.
    Thanks, Mickey!

    Seems as though the consumer can never catch a break. It's always one step forward, two steps back. I guess it was only a matter of time before we caught it in the shorts for cord cutting. They'll always find a way to part us from our money.

    It sucks. My internet price has gone from $49 to $79 in a matter of 3 years and it only includes 1024 GB. Once my kids get a little older, Iíll easily need the unlimited plan which brings my internet to $129. So cox has basically said, ok cut the dang cord but watch your internet prices skyrocket. This is all in addition to the fragmented streaming market. Netflix, Hulu, prime, Disney+, Apple TV+, etc..

    The positives for me being:
    1) most services are no commercials (will Disney+ be?)
    2) content is just so good nowadays
    3) no contracts

    It is not. Boba Fett is not even really a Mandalorian.

    I guess but he IS a clone of a Mandalorian. If you clone a white guy, he is still Caucasian. Right?

    He was also raised as a son by a Mandalorian, so it seems to me he is both culturally and genetically Mandalorian.
