It was a very big weekend in Disney news with the first look of dozens of new shows and movies for Disney+ revealed, but The Mandalorian trailer is the glimpse that will have you most excited about the new Disney streaming service.
Set in a galaxy far, far away, five years after the events which take place in Return of the Jedi, the new Disney+ series The Mandalorian follows the story of a lone bounty hunter traveling through outer reaches of the galaxy. As director Jon Faverau explained in the D23 presentation, “Chaos reigns because there’s no central government. It’s a world like the old Samurai movies and Westerns.”
Pedro Pascal stars as the show’s titular character, with Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito (Mof Gideon), Gina Carano (Cara Dune), Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers (Greef Carga), Omid Abtahi and Werner Herzog rounding out the impressive cast.
The Mandalorian will debut on Disney+ when it launches on Nov. 12. It was also revealed at the D23 convention that, unlike Netflix, shows on Disney+ will roll out episodes weekly one at a time, so you can say goodbye to your binge-watch habit for now.
