I don't have a problem with Bo-Katan Kryze. She was a rad addition in Season 2 of the Mandalorian, and after a bumpy start in Season 3 I feel like she's earned a spot. But Disney has a very difficult time getting out of its way - this is just as true in their Marvel excursions as well. They understand at some level that the network effects of a shared universe can result in potent value - they manifested this with the MCU. It's reasonable that they would like to see this happen again, but when they don't let these things develop organically - when they crowd out shows that already have an established dynamic - it's not the same show anymore. In Biggie terms, they're determined to get high on their own supply - in flagrant abrogation of the fourth Crack Commandment. It's mercenary shit, and nothing is served by it - not this show, not the shows to come, not the service, and not the brand. This type of shit is precicely why intellectual property is supposed to have limitations on its ownership. They're out of fucking gas.
So now, they're in the position of perpetually trying to make fetch happen. It isn't going to happen! They need to make an Anthology type show, you could easily center it around Navarro, like the old EU book Tales From Mos Eisley Cantina. Make these frequent shifts part of the narrative, and then weave them together at the end. As it stands, it just feels like bait and switch. Book of Boba Fett suffered from a similar pathology. Two of its episodes were literally just episodes of another show.
I just saw the trailer for Ahsoka, and that's just a Rebels show. I haven't seen Rebels. I know I'm supposed to respond to all these people in there but that sounds like a lot of homework for me. Part of the reason Andor's so good is simple: there aren't a ton of opportunities for the mothership to get its grubby mitts on the show. It also has good writing, good pacing, good acting, and great effects. But they weren't trying to make the show a crucible for the brand. They told a human story. Everything else they want to happen will happen if they focus on that. I wouldn't hold my breath.
There is only about two days left in the Kickstarter - a Kickstarter whose purpose is to create a ten episode, fancily produced Acquisitions Incorporated series for streaming platforms. Since it's funded, all that remains to be seen is what accoutrements might be attached, and it's looking like the first stretch goal is within reach - you have but to close your hand to possess it. I'll be hanging out in the studio with our good friend Jasmine Bhullar answering your questions and doctoring your home games while we close this shit out from Noon PST to around 2. I understand that old malefactor, James Winifred Darkmagic III, might also make an appearance. See you then!
