“Bounty hunting is a complicated profession.”
After months of waiting, the first trailer for The Mandalorian is finally here! At Disney’s D23 Expo, fans were given a minute-and-a-half-long look at the first Star Wars live-action series since 1984’s Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure. The series will premiere when Disney+ goes live on November 12.
The series is set approximately five years following the events of Return of the Jedi and follows the journey of a mysterious bounty hunter known only as the Mandalorian.
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.
In addition to the trailer, we also a look at a new poster for the series. I love how there are the elements from Boba Fett’s appearance in The Star Wars Holiday Special in the Mandalorian’s look. What are your thoughts?
The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal in the title role. He is joined by Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef, and Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, and Ming-Na Wen in undisclosed roles. Taika Waititi will provide the voice of the droid, IG-11.
