You’ve all been waiting for it, and here it is! Disney and Lucasfilm have unleashed the first trailer for The Mandalorian! This Disney+ series looks like it’s going to be freakin’ badass! It’s a must watch for Star Wars fans. This show alone is what is getting me to sign up for Disney+ in the first place. Everything else is just an awesome bonus!
The series stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) as “a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.” It also includes Gina Carano (Deadpool) as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers (Predator) as Greef Carga, Omid Abtahi (American Gods) as Dr. Pershing, Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), as well as Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, and Werner Herzog in undisclosed roles, and Taika Waititi as the voice of the droid IG-11.
The plot of the show is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order and here’s the synopsis:
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
Jon Favreau wrote the series, acts as the showrunner, and is an executive producer. This is his baby and it looks like he and his creative team did an amazing job bringing the story to life! I can’t wait to watch it!
Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) is directing the first episode and serving as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Additional directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
The Mandalorian will debut on Disney+ on November 12th, 2019.
