Things We Saw Today: The Mandalorian Posters Are Here!

Recommended Videos

The Mandalorian is a highly anticipated Disney+ Star Wars show that we know very little about. I’m not being evasive, it’s just that they want to “keep the secrets” surrounding the show so close to the vest we barely know anything about the characters or the storyline. What we DO know about show is that it will be an eight-episode live-action series created by Jon Favreau and stars Pedro Pascal as the eponymous bounty hunter. It’s set five years after Return of the Jedi. Taika Waititi is involved! So we’re in.

“It was really compelling to me what happens after the celebration of the Empire falling,” Favreau said at Star Wars Celebration, explaining why he wanted to use this era in Star Wars history, according to Rotten Tomatoes. “The revolution was successful, but then what happens?”

And now, at long last, we have some glorious new character posters for the show to look at and dissect:

What are these characters going to do? Who can we trust? I don’t know, but I’m here for Carl Weathers living his best life and I can’t wait to see what The Mandalorian has in store for us.
