I finally watched Rogue One. I think it was the best disney Star Wars but I haven't watched Mandelorian yet. I liked the story and visually it was really good.

Rogue one could have been amazing if they cut out the China pandering and recast everyone except Ben mendelson. Mads was also totally underutilized. Huge disappointment he now can’t play a better character in SW, stuck as the oh so memorable Galen erso forever. Lame

Agreed. If Rogue One had a good plot, interesting characters (or any character with any personality) and good pacing it could be a good film.

A new change to the Greedo scene has surfaced on Disney+. Now for some reason Greedo says "Maclunkey" before shooting, further ruining the scene.

"China pandering"? Please do tell...

Casting famous HK actor Donnie Yen and famous Chinese actor Jiang Wen in attempts to boost ticket sales in those markets. Do you really think those roles were crucial to the plot or anything in the film for that matter? Or that those particular actors were "perfect" for those roles? They were shoehorned in because of economic factors beyond the scope of the film.

That's interesting - But could the blind character (Chirruit) been played by anyone else but a martial artist (and yes, I know there are non-asian martial artists, but I guess my point is perhaps they chose Donnie because he fit the type of character they were creating and wanted to portray and not because they were boosting ticket sales in China.

Also, Beskar is the heaviest metal:

      So apologies if this has already been posted, but it's been confirmed that alongside the new episodes in the Star Wars series, there' going to be standalone movies released as well. Could be pretty cool if done properly (a Boba Fett movie would be especially good). Anyway, here's the 411 from Empire:

      A clip from the upcoming Star Wars movies on Blu-Ray show Lucas finally went and fixed something in the movies that actually needed fixing: That damn lame Yoda puppet (which was inferior to even 1980's Empire Strikes Back Yoda puppet) from The Phantom Menace:
