Check out the cast. You should give it a try just based on that.

Yes, I''m with you, Shaun. Massively underutilised actor. So much charisma, so little screen time.

As for Tim's comment vis-a-vis the interest of a certain character.

Though this is not Boba Fett, I would refer to Neal Adams' comment about no bad characters. It's all in the execution.

If we look to the inverse, consider Han Solo and the Solo movie. For me, it's not who is in the story or necessarily what happens, but how it happens that carries the weight.

I have some measure of faith in Favreau. And the cast is fantastic.

The trailer brings me back to the Cantina scene in ANH. Obi-wan and Han were dismembering and blasting sinister aliens at the drop of a hat. In defense, of course. I look forward to an exploration of that part of the Star Wars universe.

Iím hoping they give some indication of what current Hulu subscribers need to do in order to take advantage of their bundle offer.

Drop your existing Hulu membership and re-up via the bundle with Disney+.  That's what it's going to be.  Warning: The bundle will include the standard, ad-supported tier of Hulu - not the more expensive no-commercials plan or Hulu with Live TV.  Presumably Disney will offer a way to upgrade to those pricer Hulu options. Personally, I don't see a way you can have Hulu and add Disney+ as a bundle.  It's being done the other way 'round so that you access Hulu and ESPN+ via the Disney+ app.  We'll see, however...

Disney is offering a discounted subscription for $47 a year for three years if you are a D23 member (the free tier counts) through Labor Day.
