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

Watch our report above for the scoop on the show's timing, tone, characters (like Werner Herzog's!), cameos, vehicles, and more.

The Mandalorian hits Disney+ on November 12, 2019.

Wearing similar armor to the iconic Boba Fett, who was also a warrior from the planet Mandalore, Pascal's character is a mysterious, lone gunfighter who flies his gunship Razorcrest across the outer reaches of the galaxy.

Executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni - a creative duo with a brotherly Tom and Jerry rapport - confirmed that The Mandalorian takes place "about five years after Return of the Jedi".

Here are all the updates from the live presentation with executive producer Jon Favreau (Iron Man, the upcoming The Lion King) and the actor playing the masked man - Narcos and Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal.

Favreau has said in interviews that he plans to use the same motion-capture technology that he employed while filming The Jungle Book and The Lion King to create the aliens in The Mandalorian. It became a multi-Emmy victor and is now regarded as essential Star Wars. As part of the panel, a three-and-a-half minute behind-the-scenes reel aired exclusively to convention attendees. "It's no cartoon", quipped Pascal, getting some negative responses from the audience who love the animated Star Wars shows.

"A never been told story during a never been seen timeframe", he says.

Impressive: On Friday the teaser trailer for Star Wars IX: The Rise Of Skywalker was shared at the Celebration. Favreau also says the show will not only satisfy longtime fans but introduce a new generation to the galaxy far, far away.

Diego Luna, who played Cassian Andor in Rogue One, has signed on to star in his own untitled series on Disney Plus about the character, set during the early years of the Rebellion.
