The Mandalorian – The live-action Star Wars show gets a trailer and Ming-Na Wen joins the cast


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 Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) in the title role as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter, alongside Gina Carano (Deadpool), Carl Weathers (Predator), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Warrior) and Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows).

The first trailer dropped at D23 and you can watch it below. It was also announced that Ming-Na Wen (Agents of SHIELD, Mulan) is joining the cast. There is no word on the character she is playing but could she be an older version of Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels?

They have also said that Boba Fett will not be in the show, but I still think that it will be revealed that The Mandalorian is actually Boba.

Jon Favreau serves as executive producer and showrunner for the series. Directors for the first season include Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), who will be directing the first episode, plus Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).

The show hits Disney+ on 12th November 2019.
