Cast and crew introduce The Mandalorian at Star Wars Celebration Chicago

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

The first official footage of the highly-anticipated Star Wars television spin-off The Mandalorian premiered Sunday at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.

Judging by a slew of new images, jaded fanboys might actually give this one a pass.

Pascal was joined by co-stars Gina Carano and Carl Weathers during the panel.

The untitled prequel is one of two live-action Star Wars series in the works for Disney+, alongside Jon Favreau's "The Mandalorian". You may have been able to infer that from the helmet alone.

Carano is Kara Dune, "an ex-rebel shock trooper", who fought in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

A trailer for the project was also screened. Wood, who also provided the voice for General Grievous in Revenge of the Sith and The Clone Wars animated series, let slip that he's working on a new LEGO Star Wars game.

The Mandalorian arrives on November 12.

So what's it like to play the lead character of a Star Wars series? That's when he encounters The Mandalorian, who Weathers' character hires to get the job done. He finds a bounty hunter named Mandalorian.

This story takes place after the events of Return of the Jedi and tracks the experiences of a man from the same warrior tribe as notorious bounty hunter, who was last seen plunging into the hungry jaws of the Sarlacc pit on Tatooine. It became a multi-Emmy victor and is now regarded as essential Star Wars.

We were treated to the first footage from The Mandalorian and saw Pescal's character seemingly tracking someone down.

Favreau and Filoni also showed something that made my geeky heart leap with joy, as they revealed that they wen't completely old school and used physical scale models of the Razorcrest with tracking camera shots on top of the cutting edge digital effects technologies Favreau used on The Jungle Book and VR. They have now posted a replay of the entire panel, which includes three clips and the new trailer. The show looked like a high-caliber production that shouldn't be ignored just because it's hidden on a streaming app. Are you a fan of Matt Lanter and Hayden Christensen as Anakin? "But these are new characters and new stories, so it's a great way to invite new people in". Does it sound like an exciting prospect to you?
