Friday at Disney’s D23 convention in Anaheim Disney and Lucasfilm released the first trailer for The Mandalorian. The series is set to debut November 12 on Disney’s Disney+ streaming service.
Official synopsis: “After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
The series from Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni is a gunslinger odyssey that evokes Old West tones with sci-fi trappings. Pedro Pascal stars as the bounty hunter and gunfighter from Mandalore (in the Star Wars universe known as the home planet of bounty hunter Boba Fett and Jango Fett). The events depicted in the series are set after the events of Return of the Jedi.
