The Mandalorian at D23
With the excitement of D23 abound we have seen a lot of incredible announcements this weekend. So many that it’s almost hard to keep track! We’ve got you covered and have a post for just Star Wars related news and will also have another of just Marvel related news! Here’s the Star Wars link! BUT, that’s not what this post is for. This post if for The Mandalorian trailer! Take a look:
Set as Disney’s streaming service, Disney+’s, launch title The Mandalorian is a trailer full of questions. We get a gorgeous trailer that looks like it had the budget of a full blockbuster movie ($15 million per episode). There is so much to see and so much to speculate about. This is exactly what a lot of fans are hoping for from the Star Wars world. We get a completely new story with completely new characters. I am really excited to see how this ties into the rest of the Star Wars lore.
The Mandalorian is set a few years after the “Return of the Jedi” and is described as a “space opera”. I’m beyond excited for this show and I am curious as to what the theme will be. The new poster is almost like a western, which honestly would be kind of cool. There’s a star-studded cast with the likes of Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, and Carl Weathers at the helm. It is sure to be a wild ride. There are eight episodes. What we don’t know is if the eight episodes will be released all at once or if they will be spread out week to week.
