The Mandalorian is the first live-action Star Wars series ever made and let me tell you, after watching the panel yesterday, seeing the leaked teaser trailer and behind-the-scenes footage, and looking at the images it’s pretty clear, I am SO PUMPED for this show.
It’s like a dream come true. I have always wanted to watch a Star Wars series in live-action and I thought it would never happen. With The Mandalorian dropping in November, I am just…ecstatic. This show is going to be so off the chain I just am at a loss of words. So, on that note, here are the latest photos for The Mandalorian.
Carl Weathers, who is known mostly for his iconic role in the Rocky films as Apollo Creed (and who is clearly one of my favorite actors of all time), is coming to another iconic franchise as a bounty hunter guild leader named Greef Carga. That sounds 100% awesome. To be the head of a guild of bounty hunters means you have to be one tough cookie and I can’t wait to see him in this show.
Another main character on the show is Gina Carano’s Cara Dune who is an ex-Rebel shock trooper. I’ve seen her in action in the leaked teaser and let me assure you, she’s undoubtedly going to be one of the coolest heroines in the franchise. I am straight up already in love with this character and I haven’t even fully seen her yet.
And finally, there’s the lead of the show, The Mandalorian himself played by yours truly, Pedro Pascal. I don’t care, I’m going to say it. Jango and Boba Fett are nowhere near as cool as The Mandalorian. His outfit is ridiculously amazing looking and his rifle, oh my goodness, it is hands down one of the coolest things I have ever seen.
The Mandalorian is going to be set five years after the Empire fell. Whether the story is actually good or not I don’t even care because the action presented in the leaked teaser and leaked behind-the-scenes footage looks AMAZING!
If you think you liked Rogue One or Solo this is going to be a definite must-watch.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force be with you.
