Watch: The First Trailer for “The Mandalorian”

"The Mandalorian"

The first footage of the highly-anticipated Star Wars TV show has been unveiled. 

The first official trailer for The Mandalorian dropped this Friday at the Disney+ showcase at the D23 Expo in Anaheim. The series hails from Lion King director Jon Farveau. 

“We were able to put together a production that stands up side-by-side with all the features,” Favreau told expo-goers.

“It’s a whole new Star Wars in a whole new timeframe that hasn’t been covered except in the Extended Universe …  The Empire is gone, and then chaos reigns. There’s no central government in the galaxy…The gunfighters are roaming and people are fighting for their own safety and to try to build safe communities, but still, it’s a dangerous world.”

The first-ever live-action Star Wars TV series takes place three years after the events in Return of the Jedi and follows a lone gunfighter in the Outer Rim, played by Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal. 

The series also stars Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, and Emily Swallow with Taika Waititi voicing the droid IG-11.
