Yeah, I thought they really nailed his movement. I was curious to see which way Taika Waititi went with the voice, and I'm glad he kept it a little more understated than, say, Korg! I hope other IGs turn up at some point though, otherwise it'll be a bit disappointing if he was one and done.Did you like IG-11? I thought his movements and his actions were almost as great as his quips.
I would have to disagree that you will be lost to the plot unless you have seen Rebels or played some of the video games. I'd doubt that anyone watching it won't have seen a Star Wars film before, but bounty hunters were not invented by George Lucas. Clint Eastwood's 'No Name' hardly spoke either, and this is much more spaghetti western than Firefly was US Civil War. The Mandalorian helmet and robes speaks to a Spartan Warrior with their rigorous education and training program. However, him being a foundling and saving the life of a foundling - what is it with Star Wars writers and their obsession with abandoned children cared for by others?In fact, if you have not seen the Rebels, you will lost. If you have played some of the video games, or read the non canon novels, you might get that back in the days of the Old Republic, Mandalorians were an elite race of warriors.
It is because George Lucas Universe is full of tragic stories. The families aren't important when you can have robots to take care of the business.However, him being a foundling and saving the life of a foundling - what is it with Star Wars writers and their obsession with abandoned children cared for by others?
I'd actually forgotten about that.Plus they are owned by Disney now, which is basically a factory for fictional orphans...
