IG-11 (voiced by Taika Waititi) is a bounty hunting droid. He “often gets mistaken for the famous IG-88 in the show (just as fans watching the trailer have mistaken him for IG-88 in real life).”
I actually like that they are keep details vague for this series. I’m getting all the information that I need to know for now. I’m already sold on the series, and I can’t wait to see how this story is going to play out!
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.
Favreau wrote the series, acts as the showrunner, and is an executive producer. 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.
