Yes, they are and a lot of British actors are included in the cast. It has worked in the live action, while the voices has been a bit more serious in the animated stuff. Some of the animated stuff is also extremely dark and are really meant for the mature audience. I'm personally fine that there is a comedy relief and some of the characters are comedians.The casting in BOBF is bizarre. Are Favreau and Filoni casting their comedian mates in roles?
Well, yeah, they cannot take it any other way. It is special for them to be in SW. Billy Connoly in third part of the Hobbit is a brief encounter and I felt the same about him riding the warboar and waving the ax. Majordomo for example is a bit of character, but it's that liveliness that sit in the role as the Mayor behind him is far more serious. As a public face I would want someone like him handling the PR for the Mayor's office.and their acting is like Bea Arthur in the Holiday Special.
Me neither and there is no point for the spoiler tags in the episode threads. We are talking about the episode and what's in it. But the Tusken tribe, I feel Boba is going to do right for them at some point. The bikers might have a pyke handler.never thought I’d be so sad to see tuskens slaughtered
Speaking with his collaborator and friend Kevin Smith on his FatMan Beyond podcast, The Book of Boba Fett cinematographer David Klein pulled back the curtain on the Bantha at Smith's request. "No my man, we don't have elephants. We have one Bantha that's filled with about four puppeteers and another four people on little remote controls and the other three or four or five (Banthas) are CG. And it's on a Motion Base and it does this (moves hands) and it goes across the backlot and we shoot it....It's on track and its motorized but a Motion Base can be programmed to animation. So you animate it in the pre-viz to do its little walk and they program that into the Motion Base and it does its little walk.
When asked by Smith why they would even bother building a Bantha when they could just make one using CGI, Klein revealed the full philosophy on the shows, noting the influence that George Lucas retains on the productions at Lucasfilm.
"Our methodology always goes back to 'How would George have done it in '77?' and that's where we start," Klein said. "Of course he didn't have Motion Bases and things like that so we cheat a little bit obviously, but he also didn't have VFX like we, so we cheat a lot actually. But it always needs to start with that in mind and even when we're doing visual effects work and CG work it starts with that, it has to feel real. You can't just put the camera anywhere you gotta to put it where he could have put it in '77, you have to move it like he would have moved it in '77. So that's why it's puppets, it's practical sh*t everywhere. We always try and do it real until it becomes financially ridiculous. So, Bantha, it's just four guys in a Bantha."
Also, is it just me or was the chase at the end extremely slow. They've introduced super shiny colourful speeders to get the young viewers interested and then they just...slowly tailgate majordomo for a while. Is there a 30mph speed limit in town?
I thought the same but as the chase went on, I noticed the hotrods looked a bit like they were shuddering and moving slightly clumsily. I figured these kids had the means to gloss their rides up, but not to actually have the scratch to keep them in good working order.
Who knows, though. It was definitely done on purpose by its noticeable difference to other speeders.
Dudebros on Twitter now up in arms saying GL would never do something so un-Star Wars Hilarious. I wonder what they thought of the speeders in AOTC Coruscant chase scene, or Bail Organa’s nifty red one in ROTS; not to mention the endless shinies in the animated series.
Don’t worry, it was just one tribe. But it was pretty sad all the same.Hmm! I agree that it was most underwhelming after last week's excellent chapter.
When I saw the "hotrods" all I was reminded of was Power Rangers!
All that build-up of the Tuskan Raiders culture, traditions and way of life last week, just to have them all killed off this week!!! However, I'm hoping that wasn't all Tuskan Raiders and just a single tribe??
Exactly my impression!When I saw the "hotrods" all I was reminded of was Power Rangers!
