  • First Look of The Mandalorian: Pedro Pascal Describes His Character as a 'Badass'

Here's everything we know so far about The Mandalorian.

Star Wars Celebration 2019 wound down in a big way Sunday with our first look at The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm's very first live-action television series hitting Disney+ this fall.

Writer and executive producer Jon Favreau, director and executive producer Dave Filoni and executive producer Kathleen Kennedy made the introduction as they hosted a panel discussion about the upcoming series. And more so than anything: confusion. He said during the panel that he'd been working on his Mandalorian idea for a long time, and that he'd always been interested in the timeline that took place after Return of the Jedi, to see what happened after Darth Vader and his Empire were defeated. You have vestiges of the Empire. You have only the strong surviving. Each day the items on display changed, and you can check out all three days of Galaxy's Edge toys and merch in our gallery below!

Pedro Pascal, playing The Mandalorian himself, was the first to take the stage. Pascal said the lead has a lot of Clint Eastwood in him. He's a "mysterious, lone gunfighter" who roams the outer reaches of the galaxy in his ship, the Razor Crest, looking for bounty. "Some would say he has low moral character ..." "He's a badass", Pascal adds. "And I'm having a bit of trouble reintegrating myself into society".

Favreau was quick to note how Carano performed a lot of her own stunts in the series.

Carano plays Cara Dune.


Favreau describes Pascal's character, "He's a bounty hunter, and a gun fighter, and a hired gun". Guess who he finds?

That "client" is presumably played by German documentarian Werner Herzog. That's when he encounters The Mandalorian, who Weathers' character hires to get the job done. Star Wars: Rogue One explained how the Rebels obtained the plans to blow up the first Death Star before A New Hope, and Solo told the origin story of Han Solo, one of the main characters of the original movies. "He's kind of the head of this guild of bounty hunters". Are you excited for The Mandalorian? "For a lower fee". The type of characters that would survive and what it was like until the New Republic took over.

And that is where the adventure begins.

In any case, the two men very quickly bonded over their love and fascination with the Star Wars universe.

The panel exclusively showed attendees a sizzle reel that opened with the Mandalorian walking on a bridge on an icy world, following a transponder to a shelter. "Everyone was from a different perspective, a different generation", Favreau said. We also saw footage of Carano pulling off some great stunts, and a line from Breaking Bad alum Giancarlo Esposito.
