It feels like forever, but just a short while ago, the first trailer for the upcoming live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian was finally released to fans at D23 and online. While the trailer doesn’t give away much of anything it sets the gritty, realistic tone we were worried about after this morning’s Disneyriffic trailer.
The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, and Giancarlo Esposito. Jon Favreau wrote the series and directed at least one episode, while Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow each signed on to direct at least one themselves. The Mandalorian will lands on Disney+ on November 12th.
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.
