    Got a lot of information on the Tusken’s in the first episode. I think it’s worth discussing.

    Does anyone have any clue what that tusken with the strips of cloth on their head was?

    Seemed to be a different tribe of Tuskens than the ones we've seen if the garments were anything to go by.

    Yeah, the children were different to the ones in AOTC for one thing.

    Now I know this doesn’t justify anything, but I found it interesting how much they focused on the children.

    Children are impressionable. You tell them to jump they’ll jump. But it does put a new spin on Attack of the clones. The Tusken children very well could have helped to torture Shmi. However this doesn’t justify Anakin at all.

    I'm loving all this Tusken content. One of my complaints about Disney SW is not enough screentime for alien characters/cultures/languages. I always laugh when aliens in superhero movies speak English... even with each other!

    From the very beginning, George gave us R2's bleep-bloops, Chewie's Shyriiwook howls, Greedo's Rodian trash talk etc. It made the universe much more immersive to feature non-humans so prominently. I think Disney is scared to make general audiences read subtitles or (gasp!) pay attention to visual cues to figure out what's being said.

    That Tuskan respect thing is definitely going to have a pay off somewhere, Boba basically has a hidden army to call on me thinks.

    This gives more credence to more lenghty flashbacks.

    It's a sort of tragedy in hindsight. The Tuskens could have spared Shimi and make them one of their own rather than a slave. But the rite of acceptance is to save them from a monster, and Shimi cannot do that.

    One has to wonder what Anakin would feel if it turned out that Shimi was fine at the Tusken site, rather than on the verge of death.

    Heck, American teenagers are more violent than the Tusken kids. They wacked Boba around a bit, but not enough to kill him.

    If those Tuskens grew up in the midwest, they'd have machinegunned Boba.

    They are a formidable opponent using their weapons against an inexperienced foe. Even someone as powerful and combat-experienced as Boba stands no chance when trying to melee fight against a Sandperson wielding a Gaffi Stick.

    I thought it was interesting to see a different tribe and their garmet design.

    Hopefully we will see their culture more flashed out in this show, but beyond that I feel they have gotten enough screentime between mando and bobf, I'm ready to move on to other species and planets...

    How old would that Tusken child be by the time of the main story? The flashbacks are at least 5 years ago, and the kid could be 12-13 by my estimation. When they grow up, could they be an ally of Fett’s?

    Near the beginning of the episode, one Tusken was carrying a Gothic-style European mace, very similar to this one.
