We are all waiting for Disney+ to start steaming and then we can finally be able to watch the first episode of Lucasfilm and Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian, This new clip features The Mandalorian walking into cantina where he continues to kick some ass when he’s pushed to his limit.
It’s a fabulous scene that highlights how much the series is inspired by the western style. As a fan of westerns, that’s one of the main things I like about what I’ve seen from the show so far. This is a straight-up Star Wars western TV show! I think it is going to be awesome.
The series is set after the fall of the Empire and before the rise of the First Order and follows “a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.” Here’s the 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.
Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) as the main character, Gina Carano (Deadpool) as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers (Predator) as Greef Carga, Omid Abtahi (American Gods) as Dr. Pershing, Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), as well as Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, and Emily Swallow.
Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) is directing the first episode and serving as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Additional directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
