    Oh, I can see Grogu come back as an adult in a universe sometime after the last trilogy.

    Me too. One of the recommended ways is to use an exacto knife but I didn't have one handy. I ended up using small cuticle scissors to poke through and cut it out.

    I love Grogu, but I’m glad that arc has ended. I was concerned season 7 would still be the same arc.

    When they lifted the hood, my wife exclaimed “that actor looks more like Luke Skywalker than Luke Skywalker looked like Luke Skywalker!”

    I think she was right — they did a phenomenal job of not just hitting the de-aging well, but at appealing to my ideal of what Luke assault that cruiser would have been. I would have to challenge myself to find a scene in the original trilogy that I liked as well.

    I will disagree with the pack and say that I am glad the baby yoda plot may be concluded. It would have become stale. The child’s development (consistent with his age) is rather slow.

    It never ceases to amaze me how people are this stupid. Just shut the F**K up, and you will have no problems. As a public figure, she has to know her posts will come up under scrutiny. So if you are an a-hole with disgusting views, and you post them, you are going to get slammed. Deservedly so.

    Worse...as a public figure WHOSE POSTS HAVE ALREADY GOTTEN HER IN TROUBLE!

    Clearly, learning from her mistakes is not in her repertoire.

    From a production standpoint, this could have been a huge problem Covid wise.
    Because the show is (I believe) primarily shooting in California, it's subject to the state's Covid guidelines and restrictions.
    They can only continue shooting as long as they follow the guidelines and help prevent further infections.

    If Carano is truly anti-mask (and may well believe that it's a hoax as well as being anti vaccine), it's likely that she would be unwilling to comply with the guidelines and could get the production shut down.
    Costing people time and money.

    So is Pedro Pascal double masking via helmet and cloth/surgical mask?
    Or is Covid the reason he never takes off the helmet?

    Anti-Semitic posts are usually considered disgusting. Equating Nazi Germany and its treatment of Jews with political disagreement... yeah, that'll get you Mickey'd.

    YMMV.
