The latest trailer for Disney+’s biggest series is here. With the advent of Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ right around the corner, we’re getting one last look at the service’s most high-profile project. The latest trailer for the “The Mandalorian” has dropped, and it’s got everything you might want in a “Star Wars” show.
Although the trailer doesn’t give away any of the details from the show, it does give us a look at some of the new beasts the series will feature. The trailer also promises plenty of space fights, and some bounty hunting as well. It’s pretty much what you’d expect from a “Star Wars” TV show, and that’s not a bad thing.
We also get plenty of weighty dialogue from a character played by documentary director Werner Herzog. One of the strangest thing about this series is that it wanted to cast Herzog. The only thing stranger is that he agreed to do it.
“The Mandalorian” is set to take place in between the events of “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens.” The titular bounty hunter is played by Pedro Pascal, who you might know from his work as Oberyn Martell on “Game of Thrones.” The show is executive produced by Jon Favreau, whose last project was the live action “Lion King.” Favreau told The Hollywood Reporter that his goal was to showcase the “darker, freakier side of ‘Star Wars.'”
This new trailer gets at that tone, and also showcases the show’s impressive visual effects. The series is reportedly quite expensive, costing something close to $12.5 million per episode. The show’s eight episodes will air weekly beginning on November 12, when Disney+ launches at a price of $6.99/month. The final episodes will air in December, in conjunction with the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” in theaters.
Hopefully, the show gives us a new way to appreciate “Star Wars.” Now that the Skywalker saga is reportedly coming to an end, Disney is going to need to start exploring new avenues into this world. “The Mandalorian” is one of their biggest attempts to do just that.
