The Mandalorian: Pedro Pascal in first-ever live-action Star Wars series

Highlights
  • The Mandalorian is out November 12 on Disney+
  • Gina Carano, Carl Weathers’ characters revealed
  • Pedro Pascal’s spaceship is called The Razorcrest

At Star Wars Celebration in Chicago over the weekend, The Mandalorian creator and showrunner Jon Favreau (Iron Man) gave fans a peek at the first-ever live-action Star Wars series, including the logo and first-look photos along with details about its primary characters, the protagonist's spaceship, the timeline, and the number of episodes: eight. Audience members were also treated to some exclusive footage, which Disney hasn't released online. Also present on stage alongside Favreau were cast members Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, and Carl Weathers, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and executive producer Dave Filoni, who has directed the pilot.

Pascal (Narcos, Game of Thrones) is playing the title character, who is described as “a mysterious lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.” On stage, Pascal added: “Some might say he has questionable moral character, which is in line with some of our best Westerns.”

Carano (Deadpool) stars in The Mandalorian as “an ex-Rebel shock trooper” named Kara Dune, who is “a bit of a loner — which isn't a far stretch — and [is] having a bit of trouble reintegrating [herself] into society.” Shock troopers were elite soldiers part of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

Lastly, Carl Weathers (Rocky) plays Greef Karga, the head of a group of bounty hunters, who is on the lookout for someone to fetch a valuable MacGuffin. Naturally, he comes across Pascal's Mandalorian character. Weathers added on stage: “The Mando does what needs to be done.”

The Mandalorian's spaceship is called The Razorcrest, for which Favreau & Co. built a miniature version, in honour of the original trilogy's practical effects.

And the show's events are set five years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, which makes it 25 years prior to Episode VII – The Force Awakens. On stage at Star Wars Celebration, Favreau said he was interested in the question, ‘What happens after the celebration of the fall of the Empire?'

In addition to Pascal, Carano, and Weathers, the cast of the Star Wars series includes Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), director Werner Herzog, Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), and Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides). Filoni is one of five announced directors of the eight episodes of The Mandalorian, alongside the likes of Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), actress Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), and Deborah Chow (Reign).

The Mandalorian will release November 12 on Disney+. There's no word on when and where the Star Wars series will air in India.
