The Mandalorian 7-Part 2-The Big Freeze preview
I recieved opening crawl for story I'm writing so that cheered me up a little I guess -not sure musics on there in certain countries (copyright issues? everyone knows it's John Williams ffs -had same issue with Battlefront videos so I don't bother with that either now) .. but this is much better than the one I originally filmed with my camera (its gone now as I've replaced it with this one)
The Mandalorian Seven-Part 2 -The Big Freeze.
The burning wreck of shuttle ST107 upside down in a Death Star hanger - A officer points towards the craft to a Firefighter Trooper as chaos erupts around the battle station
Officer:"This isn't a drill -extinguish that shuttle before it blows on the double!"
Frame 2: Opun McGrrr awakens it's been a rough landing (again )-his hands still bound by cuffs -he is lucky to survive -smoke fills the the ships cells.
McGrrrr: "Whuh? Whurr am I?"
Fenn Shysha:" Unlock these binds or I'll snap your generals neck"
:Fenn has General Basts head locked behind the energy binds and is close to throttling the life out of the Imperial General A Navy Trooper motions towards them weapon down cast.Opun still slumped on the ground is witness to all this as Bast begs for his life.
General Bast :"Do as he ..ruurrr says....that's an order gasp*
Frame 4 :Hands unfetted , Shysha bashes the guard square in the skull with is elbow -Bast wheezes down on the ground holding his neck .McGrrr attempts to raise himself up as this transpires.
Fenn Shysha:"Attaboy!.. I'll take ya blaster too gonna need that too "
Opun McGrrr:"Wha about me?
"Frame 5 : Fenn is already on the move-he's grabbed Bast too as he knows he's a valuable prisioner as he runs he's blasting with the stunned Navy Troopers weapon -as smoke and flames fill the shuttles interior .
Fenn Shysha :"try and keep up- you're coming with us too General!"
Leaping from the shuttles upside down exit Fenn mows down two firefighter troopers who are trying to calm the shuttles flames - with Bast in tow
Fenn Shysha:"Wherever we are it's time to leave!"
Big double page splash -huge battle scene as Tie Fighters & Interceptors locked in combat with the Mandalorian Cruiser -Gauntlet Fighters and various other Mando Craft dogfighting whilst the Death Star in its completed form watches on unaffected by the firefight going on in its orbit -we get a extreme close up of the cockpit of Tobbi Dala as he communicates to his fellow Commandos
Tobbi Dala: "Keep them busy ... I'm going in "
:Tobbi's Gauntlet fighter sideswipes two exploding Tie Fighters destroyed by two of his fellow wingmen .
Wingman:"Roger that Tobbi. "
As Fenn hits the ground gun pulled to General Basts head he is stopped in tracks by a deck officer who standing directly behind him with a large DLT-19 blaster aimed directly at the Mandalorian .
Fenn Shysha:"One False Move...
McGrrr belly flops directly on top of the deck officer his body mass totally flattens the imperial as he drops from the shuttle doorway -Fenn twists around alerted to the danger .
Deck Officer: "unnnkkk!"
McGrrr looks up to Fenn gesturing with his cuffed hands, eyes almost like a puppy -beneath him the deck officers lifeless hand protuding beneath crushed by Opuns weight .
Fenn Shysha:" guess I could do with another gun i'll see if I can free ya"
Tobbi skillfully evades the imperial gunners entering the hanger ,Imperial troops mobilize to prevent the Gauntlet from landing
Fenn, McGrrr now carrying the deck officers rifle and Bast run from the crashed shuttle ...blasting troopers as they flee under heavy fire but with Bast as prisoner , the Imperials are hesitant in their choice of shots -
Fenn Shysha:" I knew you'd come through Tobbi "
The Shuttle explodes as Tobbi swerves his ship into landing position troopers, walkers robots are all thrown backwards by the eruption. Fenn and Opun rush towards Tobbi's craft.
From the rear door a astromech droid rolls down the ramp -a R2 unit but coloured much like Boba Fetts helmet greens oranges and reds. Imperial energy bolts zip past the little droid .
The robot wheels it across the Death Stars shiny floors a blue light beaming from it's eye behind him .
Tobbi has left the pilot seat and is now covering both the droid but also Fenn who still has his gun to General Basts head and McGrrr who are rushing towards the Mandalorian ship.
Tobbi:"Standard evac procedure ... you know the drill"
Frame 17 :
From the Imperials point of view -who are opening fire wildly through a platoon of blue-ish Mandalorian shocktroopers -some of Tobbi and Fenns shots hit some stormtroopers but this adds to the illusion as the R2 unit is projecting a big hologram .
Imperial Officer:" Mando Squad gun them down!"
Tobbi uses his wrist flamethrower to provide cover , Fenn releases Bast who crawls along the Death Stars deck McGrrrr has made it inside the ship and dashes towards the cockpit laser bolts shreek by crashing all around the ship
Mcgrrrr:"Nice meeting you lads...!"
The Gauntlet raises of the Death Stars deck in vertical take off mode , Tobbi and Fenn valantly fight there corner but are increasingly out numbered by Troopers and now Scout Walkers begin to approach the two warriors .-Fenn turns to see that Mcgrrrr has stolen Tobbi's ship.
McGrrrr:"But I have business to attend to"
The two Mandolorians are surrounded by Stormtroopers as well as Death Troopers -their is no other option but to lower there weapons -if they have any chance to breath another day.,, The Gauntlet clears the hanger into the battle amongst the stars.
Tobbi:" That womp rat you picked up -is a dead man-better to get even than die here"
Fenn" I hear you - okay white hats we surrender!"
Director Orson Krenix is at the scene , in white uniform and cloak much like we see him in Rogue One (this story takes place a year prior) beside him to his left and right weapons pointed at Fenn & Tobbi are two Deathtroopers... Krennic grins.
Director Krennix:"We have the two intruders Lord Vader ...shall I...?"
Darth Vader elsewhere on The Death Star rear view gazes out of a large window into the battle between the Tie Fighters and Gauntlets the Mandolorian Cruiser is also visable and streaks of colours from laser blasts and explosions .
Darth Vader:"I will deal with them personally Director Krennic - commander direct your fire towards the cruiser"
The Death Star Gunner commander recieves Vaders message and obeys his order.
Death Star Gunner Commander:" Very Good my Lord -commence primary ignition "
The Eight green beams of the Death Stars Concave Dish merge into one powerful beam ...
View of the Mandolorian Cruiser been absolutely annihilated by the Death Stars superlaser the impact is totally devasting smaller ships are also caught up in the blast .
Vader stands emotionless as ever front view as he walks away from window ..what was once a superclass cruiser has been reduced to fiery embers and then to nothing ... the space battle is all but over with one shot from the space station .
Darth Vader:"Bring the prisoners to me -unharmed we have much to discuss Director Krennic "/
So there you go first 6 pages of second part of The Mandalorian Seven(script will be around 26 pages per chapter) I suspect they'll be four parts to the complete story as it's all planned out in my head as are the two follow ups If I ever get to write them .. above Ben in Rako disguise with Boba .. based on Dredd/Strontium Dog 2000ad cover-That Carlos Ezquerra did back in early 90's I havent got around to completing it ..like the above script but this is what I was getting up to b4 I became obbessed with doing a Fallout4 movie (that would last god knows how many hours) it'll be much more jazzy than this once I feel in the mood to resume working on it. Artwork at top of post is a preview of whats to follow in season 4 of Rebels -season 3 ended over the weekend - it's been a memorable journey especially Sabine and Bens episodes which I have to take into special consideration , If I am to write this story I have to be able to connect it to the real events of the time shown both in Rebels and Rogue One-I don't want to stray from that -this chapter explores Dantoinne as well and why it was evacuated (my ideas pretty neat-and connects way back to the original animated Clone Wars series with Mace but I won't reveal too much but it here's the clip where Jules ,,, I mean Mace is kicking droid ass on Dantoinne )
I'll try and force myself to get back on the script and illustration -got so many ideas how this story is going progress but I must be careful if Ifind out what actually transpires is totally different in canon.
