Taking to social media, Mickey Mouse & Co. shared some shots of a masked Pedro Pascal as the titular Mandalorian, along with Gina Carano as Cara Dune and Carl Weathers as Greef Carga. "What would happen, the type of characters that would survive, and what it was like until the New Republic took over... the idea of going back to the tone of the first Star Wars film, to me that was [intriguing]". "Some might say he has questionable moral character, in line with some of our best Westerns, and some good samurai [films.] And he's a badass".
Wearing similar armor to the iconic Boba Fett, who was also a warrior from the planet Mandalore, Pascal's character is a mysterious, lone gunfighter who flies his gunship Razorcrest across the outer reaches of the galaxy.
The Mandalorian-which also stars Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, and Giancarlo Esposito-premieres on November 12.
Carano will reportedly be playing Cara Dune, an ex-rebel shocktrooper.
New: The Mandalorian is a new stand-alone series from the Star Wars franchise. Weathers' character is Grief Carga (again, spelling?), the head of a guild of bounty hunters, who's looking for somebody to go after a "certain product" for a client that's very valuable.
The story is set between the fall of the Empire from the original Star Wars movie trilogy and before the rise of the First Order from the current trilogy that includes Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. (Typically they're called in for various events like Star Wars Celebration, but not to be a part of filming.) Filoni said the Stormtroopers ended up being a test audience for the crew.
"We have you four to one", a Stormtrooper tells the Mandalorian, according to CNET.
A behind-the-scenes video also showed the diverse group of directors working on the eight-episode series, including Favreau, Filoni, Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow.
A galaxy far, far away just got a little bit bigger as "Star Wars" fans got a first look at "The Mandalorian".
