The Mandalorian is a new Star Wars series coming to Disney + on November 12th! I attended The Mandalorian panel at Star Wars Celebration and have all the details for you!
The Mandalorian Series panel at Star Wars Celebration was head by the creators themselves Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. They came to give us all The Mandalorian series details they could but was safe not to spill too much, even not showing the new footage of the series on the LIVE stream. However attendees in the arena DID get to view it, I being one of them, and I have some some awesome details to discuss with you!
The Mandalorian Character
The Mandalorian is played by Pedro Pascal and is described as a mysterious, lone, gun-fighter in the outer reaches of the Galaxy. While Pedro says he has a “questionable moral character”, he also declares him as a total BAD ASS!
Cara Dune is played by Jeana Corrono and she describes her character as a loner who is learning and attempting to re-integrate herself into society. Fun fact: Cara Dune is an ex-Rebel Shock Trooper.
Reef Carga (spelling not confirmed) is played by Apollo himself Carl Weathers. Reef is a guy running a group of bounty hunter (a guild of bounty hunters) looking for someone to go after a valuable product and finds The Mandalorian. He hires him and sends him out there to do what needs to be done!
Other Fun Facts About The Mandalorian
They used cutting edge techology Jon learned from The Lion King and The jungle Book which includes VR and video walls.
They also used things like puppetry, animatronics and even built a miniture-like model like that of the OG Star Wars movie. Video of this process is in top video footage of the post.
Jennas stunt double hardly got to work because she was “all in” and wanted to do most of her stunts. She even carried off a wounded character and drag them multiple takes.
Pedro says The Mandalorian has alot of Clint Eastwood in him.
You will see characters like IG-88 and the Kowakian Monkey-Lizard, along with others from the Star Wars Universe in this series.
