There is nothing a certain set of Star Wars fans hate more than Star Wars, which makes Disney's upcoming series The Mandalorian such an intriguing prospect: audiences are gonna be subjected to some live-action sci-fi madness whether they like it or not.
Plot details were scant - stop us if you've heard that one before - but between a 45-minute panel with creator Jon Favreau, executive producer Dave Filoni, stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano and Carl Weathers, a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel, and about five minutes of actual show footage, a clearer picture of the program is emerging.
The Mandalorian will arrive on Disney's new streaming service Disney Plus on November 12th, 2019!
Favreau was quick to note how Carano performed a lot of her own stunts in the series.
Weathers plays Grief, "a guy who is running this group of bounty hunters".
Cara Dune (Gina Carano) in Lucasfilmâ€™s THE MANDALORIAN. Thanks to a recent social media post by Matt Lanter, fans can see one more exciting sight from the Star Wars event, and that's the actor alongside fellow Anakin Skywalker alumni, Hayden Christensen. But how you perform on the mission holds even bigger stakes: perform with skill and you may earn extra galactic credits, while bringing the ship back banged up could put you on the list of a bounty hunter. Faverau called them back, and we saw a scene in which Weathers' character is bartering with The Mandalorian. Another character, who Herzog introduces as Dr. Pershing (spelling unconfirmed), enters the scene unexpectedly.
We got some character names and descriptions.
However, there's no puck for this job; the only information the Mandalorian has is the mark's last-reported location and four digits of an eight-digit ID. Are you excited for The Mandalorian?
For Pascal, the chance to join the Star Wars universe is "fantasy fulfillment", adding, "I was born in '75, so I am a product of a Star Wars imagination".
During the show's panel on Sunday, Favreau also gave fans a glimpse at new Mandalorian footage, but it has not yet been made available to the public. "We love pulling all the different stories together".
In addition to a selection of blue and green milk-inspired beverages, Galaxy's Edge visitors will also be able to pick up a selection of Coca-Cola drinks packaged in special bottle's inspired by the Star Wars films. "But these are new characters and new stories, so it's a great way to invite new people in".
