We’ve got a badass new photo to share with you from Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian series. As you can see it features the main character taking on a pair of Trandoshans.
Star Wars fans were first introduced to a Trandoshan when Bossk showed up as part of Darth Vader’s bounty hunter team in The Empire Strikes Back. Neither of these characters is Bossk, but the Mandalorian has found himself at odds with them.
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, and Emily Swallow 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), and Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates).
The Mandalorian will debut on Disney+ on November 12th, 2019.
