Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing where every weekday we bring you a different nerdy thing we found on the internet. Disney’s D23 Expo happened over the weekend. I was at Wizard World Chicago so I could not always follow what was happening in real time. They released two new teasers for Star Wars stuff. There has been talk of a live action Star Wars television show for over a decade now. Well Disney is finally making it happen for real with The Mandalorian.
This looks pretty awesome and its kind of crazy now many different well known character actors are going to be on this show. My personal favorite shot from the trailer is seeing droid bounty hunter IG-88 in action.
And of course they had to release something to promote the latest upcoming Star Wars movie.
There is a lot of speculation about this movie. And after seeing that last image from this teaser the fandom is going nuts trying to figure out what it means. I suspect its one of two things. Either it is from a vision Rey will have not unlike that time Luke had a vision of fighting Darth Vader on Dagobah in Empire Strikes Back. Or some of that speculation about clones will turn out to be true and Rey will face her double.
There were a lot of other announcements at D23 and we may talk about them as the week goes on.
