‘The Mandalorian’ Trailer Shows Gritty Side of ‘Star Wars’ Galaxy

A new trailer for Disney’s first ever live-action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, has arrived, just a couple of weeks ahead of Disney+’s highly anticipated launch. The Mandalorian takes place after the fall of the Empire in 1983’s The Return of the Jedi and before the villainous First Order rose. It centers on a bounty hunter who is sent on a mission to collect something of great value. Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones) plays the lone Mandalorian gunfighter operating in the outer reaches of the galaxy, along with allies Cara Dune (Deadpool actress Gina Carano) and Greef Carga (Rocky’s Carl Weathers), five years after Return of the Jedi. The new trailer includes a few interesting shots, including putting a spotlight on some of the space beasts that will come across the Mandalorian’s path. There are also new spaceship fights, and a promise that fans will get a deeper look at bounty hunting — a “difficult profession.” The Mandalorian’s directors include Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa and Deborah Chow. The Mandalorian is one of Disney+’s most ambitious projects, with the series costing “around $100 million” to make, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger. That puts each episode at approximately $12.5 million, on par with some of Game of Thrones’ final episodes. The Mandalorian will premiere on November 12th, when Disney+ launches.
