Chadwick Boseman Was Originally Supposed To Be in 'Mandalorian' Season 1 According to Concept Art
The Mandalorian is easily one of, if not the best, shows on Disney+ right now. It is also the best Star Wars show available on the platform. The adventures of Din Djarin and Grogu through the galaxy has been a great ride for fans everywhere. Mando hasn’t always been alone in his journeys, though. He has had a lot of help from friends, mentors, masters, enemies, and creatures along the way. These characters have also been brought to life by some truly fantastic actors and actresses, such as Carl Weathers as Greef Karga and Rosario Dawson as fan favorite Ashoka Tano. There have also been some cameos from equally impressive stars like Jason Sudeikis and Bill Burr. But fans have recently gotten a look at some early concept art for the show that reveals some more impressive stars we almost got in the series.
Somewhere, or perhaps sometime, in some distant land or alternate plane, there exists a world that is not round. Not round at all, but indeed very flat and very limited. Its inhabitants are accustomed to its shape. In fact, they have built their lives in straight lines, clean angles, sharp corners; hardly ever a man-made circle in sight. To them, time marches on in one linear path they all must follow. One is born, one lives, and one dies. That is the natural order of things.
A Dream Of An Idea
What are dreams? Do dreams come true? Can dreams predict the future? According to Medical News Today, "Dreams are stories and images that our minds create while we sleep. They can be entertaining, fun, romantic, disturbing, frightening, and sometimes bizarre."
Star Trek: The Orville
I love The Orville. It has a great dynamic between characters. There’s plenty of scifi. It’s a lot of fun. And overall, I’d say it’s scifi, and Trek, done right. I don’t think it was his intention, but MacFarlane, in trying to make a show that somewhat parodied Star Trek, while also being a homage to it, really did create a spiritual successor to Star Trek instead. This article is an updated version of my original review, written near the beginning of season one.
Explore Your Wonders
There are many things I could be doing. That long dirty checklist is fast in growing. Yet I live mostly in a savasana pose, dreaming about the adventures I’m living in a parallel life. Or perhaps, in a fantasy universe I created with my wondrous assistants: the clouds. Whom I watch zoom and shapeshift through the atmosphere faster than flies.
A Conflicted Gemini
I am something of a contradiction: a logical creative. On the one hand, I am a scientist — I crave data and evidence-based theories. On the other, I am a speculative fiction writer who loves being swept away by magical prose and unbelievable lands. I have always found the distinction between logic and creativity to be strange, because I do not see these things as mutually exclusive. There is art in data analysis, and sometimes an excel spreadsheet is the only way to save your fictional narrative.

Shakespeare Was Right About The Stars
My mom gave birth to me at 17 on 1st October 1998 at 2:38 AM. According to Astrosofa.com, this means I'm a zodiac sign Libra with a Leo Ascendant and a moon sign of Aquarius. I have no idea what any of this means.
Indecisive Since the Womb
Are we defined by when we are born? Is a preemie who was supposed to be born two to three months later and spends the first few months of his/her/their life in an incubator going to have the same zodiac sign as a fully developed healthy baby who was born at the same time? Or would the preemie have a personality that reflects when he/she/they would have been born healthy?
Born in December
I was born in December. Two weeks late. Originally due to be a Scorpio but fate had destined me for a Sagittarius. I come from a long line of Sagittarius. My Father and I share the same birthday of December 3rd, his father before him on December 2nd, and my Mother is December 13th. Not only is my mother a Sagittarius but her rising sign is also a Sagittarius. Turn up the heat! That’s a whole lotta fire signs in one house baby.
Is the Fault in YOUR Stars?
It’s easy to make fun of astrology enthusiasts, but when it comes right down to it, a lot of the population readily engages with the predictions and descriptions they entail. Admit it, even if you are someone who preaches about how dumb zodiac signs are every day, you secretly know what yours is and have looked into your readings at least once in your life.
The Power of Fantasy After Failure
“Without this playing with fantasy, no creative work has ever come to birth.” Carl Jung I was 10 years old when I opened Robert Jordan’s Eye of the World.
“She will be missed.” “Thank you,” I whispered. My Great Aunt Stacy still clutched my hand. Shaking it as if she could ring the tears from my eyes. I hoped she hadn’t noticed how clammy my hand was. I wished I swiped it on my dress first, but she snatched it up, before I could prepare to be touched.
