Star Wars: The Mandalorian (November 2019)

First footage was shown at Star Wars Celebration this past weekend, and while it wasn't made available to the public the footage has started showing up online. Although not great quality yet.


And some a bunch of new pics:

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) in the title role as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter, alongside Gina Carano (Deadpool), Carl Weathers (Predator), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Warrior).
Cast list so far:

  • Pedro Pascal as the Mandalorian
  • Gina Carano[5] as Cara Dune
  • Giancarlo Esposito
  • Emily Swallow
  • Carl Weathers as Greef Carga
  • Omid Abtahi
  • Werner Herzog
  • Nick Nolte
  • Taika Waititi as an IG-88 assassin droid
Sounds like the show is going back to Star Wars' practical SFX roots too.

The main characterís ship, the Razorcrest, was a practical model, not a computer-generated effect. For the completely new ship, ILM model maker John Goodson built the craft using old-school techniques combined with cutting-edge 3D printing and LEDs for the engine lighting effects. Meanwhile, special effects legend John Knoll crafted a special motion-control rig in his garage so the model could be used for composite shots. It was important to pay homage to the tradition of using practical effects to ground Star Wars in reality but, like each Star Wars film thatís come before, taking advantage of the most current technology available, Favreau said, although the idea for the miniature began ďfor lighting reference.Ē
