Disney has released another new trailer for Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian, and it offers up some more new footage and also introduces Ming-Na Wen‘s character, who is an assassin named Fennec Shand. We also get to hear Nick Nolte’s gritty voice. Ya gotta love Nolte’s voice!
When talking about her character, Wen told Vanity Fair:
“We got our inspiration really from the name. The idea of a fennec fox came to mind. She’s tricky, and yet she’s able to maneuver and survive, and be stealthy—so very graceful and agile. I just love that whole image with the name.”
As for whether her character is good or bad, Wen goes on to say, “She is definitely someone who’s loyal to herself.” But the character is also described as “the first major female Asian Star Wars character who hews to the villainous side.” The actress also talks about how the story for her character will evolve, saying:
“It will evolve, it will change. I mean, I think that’s what’s so wonderful about creating a new character. I think she has a good sense of humor about it all as well, which is also fun. You can’t really pinpoint which direction she’s going to go.”
Check out the new trailer below and get ready to watch Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian on November 12th when Disney+ drops!
