'The Mandalorian': First Look at 'Star Wars' Series Revealed by Jon Favreau

'The Mandalorian': First Look at 'Star Wars' Series Revealed by Jon Favreau

But so far, the story of this new Disney+ series has stumped Star Wars historians. Now we're much close to the show's comeback, this time by way of Disney+, and a new trailer has revealed the return of a certain Jedi. So, following the Rebellion's victory there's peace throughout the galaxy, right?

Could that mean that we see Boba Fett showing up in this new series, presuming he survived the events of ROTJ? Favreau said that he wanted to take the series back to the "scum and villainy" seen in the first film, which is a tone that immediately won him over.

As such, he's especially rough around the edges. Pascal would add, "The Mandalorian is a mysterious, lone, gun fighter in the Outer Reaches of the galaxy". "He's a badass", Pascal adds.

Weathers plays Greef Carga, who is the leader of a Bounty Hunter guild. "I'm a bit of a loner-which isn't a far stretch", she says, "and I'm having a bit of trouble reintegrating myself into society".

Favreau was quick to note how Carano performed a lot of her own stunts in the series.

Cara Dune (Gina Carano) in Lucasfilm’s THE MANDALORIAN. It seemed to really bring out some enthusiasm at ILM, with Favreau joking that "a lot of people came out of the woodwork" to be a part of it. "Guess who he finds?" The titular character will be played by Pedro Pascal, who previously appeared on both Game Of Thrones and Narcos. He hires The Mandalorian to retrieve something for him. And yes, this is a very "Werner Herzog" scene. "He's a gunfighter, and a bounty hunter", Favreau told the crowd.

They also smashed windows at the... "Met Police say three men have been arrested so far on suspicion of criminal damage". Earlier this month, activists exposed the "naked truth" on climate change by stripping in the UK's House of Commons.

Disney+ just secured a couple more subscribers. "Underworld?" the Mandalorian asks. Must-see TV doesn't even justly describe "The Mandalorian;" it is now one of the most rabidly anticipated events in all of pop culture.

We were treated to the first footage from The Mandalorian and saw Pescal's character seemingly tracking someone down. That was the moment, I remember sitting at the table when we said, 'you know what, this is it. "For a lower fee".

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

And that is where the adventure begins. Fantasy fulfillment that's what's like.

Everyone was from a different perspective, different generation. From the desert of Tatooine to the forest moon of Endor, we all have different places that we love to visit in the films. Thus the variety of people who wander into the land (you and me) feel normal.

When asked how The Mandalorian would be different from other Star Wars properties, Filoni was hesitant to get into details.
