The Mandalorian: New Images and Footage revealed at Star Wars Celebration 2019!

The Mandalorian: New Images and Footage revealed at Star Wars Celebration 2019!

Pascal will be joined by Nick Nolte (48 Hrs.), Carl Weathers (Rocky), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (The Mentalist) and Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6).

Jon Favreau, the writer, creator, and showrunner, and executive producer Dave Filoni along with the actors portraying the main characters of the series took the stage and provided fans with details on their parts without giving too much away. Some might say he has questionable moral character, which is in line with some of our best Westerns and some good Samurai.

The Mandalorian hits the Disney+ streaming service November 12.

Sizzle reel footage showed Cara wielding a blaster and hitting the dirt in some intense action sequences; during one stunt, Carano said, she had to drag a character from a battle field to safety - and she had to film multiple takes.

The official plot synopsis for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has not yet been revealed, but is rumored to focus heavily on The Knights of Ren as well as revealing Rey's true identity and the significance of her character.

If Star Wars fans were looking for a reason to sign up to Disney +, The Mandalorian - along with the upcoming Cassian Andor series - seems the most compelling case so far. Taking place between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal (Game of Throne) as the titular armour-wearing badass, who is described as "a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic".

The show is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, per Favreau's description.

The topic next turned to the inspiration behind The Mandalorian's character.

Weathers takes the role of Greif Marda, head of a bounty hunter guild and the man who dishes out jobs to the central character.

"He's got a lot of Clint Eastwood in him", says Pascal, who watched Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa movies for preparation. They told one story about Gina actually dragging a wounded warrior (who was a real human, not dummy) in a scene. Below are some screenshots of the footage shown during the panel with the team building the models using 3D printers and LEDs for the engine lights.
