The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive report about Nick Nolte joining The Mandalorian. Nothing is known about his role on the show. Pedro Pascal is the lead character, Gina Carano (you saw her in the first Deadpool movie) was announced a short while ago and Carl Weathers was apparently hired as well. Nothing is known yet about plot or who exactly the actors will be portraying. I suppose we will have to wait a few more months before we get more details. The Mandalorian is projected for a late 2019 release on the Disney+ streaming channel.
Is has been rumored for quite a while, but apparently things are getting more official now. According to Variety the lead role in the upcoming Disney+ streaming show The Mandalorian has been offered to Pedro Pascal, who you may know from such things as Game of Thrones, Kingsmen 2 or Narcos. Negotiations are underway, but if nothing unforeseen happens you can expect Pedro Pascal to be The Mandalorian sometime in 2019. Shooting is underway for The Mandalorian, however only scenes without the lead actor were filmed, according to Entertainment Weekly. Carl Weathers was cast as a supporting character a few days ago. Other than that the cast is still mostly a mystery. More details will certainly follow in time.
Jon Favreau updated his Instagram account with some new photos a few hours ago and look who came to visit for his birthday! It’s good to see that George is still around, at least visiting. Who knows, maybe he even gave Jon the one or the other piece of advice about Star Wars. No matter what he did, it’s nice to see the two of them together. Another photo shows the two with Dave Filoni who will, as you all know, direct the first episode of The Mandalorian. The show can’t come soon enough!
Over the weekend Jon Favreau posted a picture of the rifle the Mandalorian will use in the show on Instagram. And it seems it’s a clear reference to the rifle Boba Fett used in The Holiday Special cartoon segment. And who knows, maybe it even is Boba Fett’s rifle, unless this design is more generic. The action figure that comes with that gun can’t be revealed soon enough!
The official Star Wars site published a very first look at the main character of the upcoming show “The Mandalorian” by Jon Favreau, which will have its premiere sometime in 2019. Dave Filoni will direct the first episode, while other episodes will be directed by Bryce Dallas Howard (you know her from Jurassic World), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Taika Waititi (Thor 3). The show will be written by Jon Favreau.
What do you think about the look of the character? In my opinion it’s classic Mandalorian armor but different enough from Boba Fett’s version. Pedro Pascal is rumored to be the main character of the show. And one thing is clear: we need an action figure of “The Mandalorian” in all possible scales and lines!
We finally have some information on the upcoming Jon Favreau live-action Star Wars series: The Mandalorian. The director revealed the synopsis via his Instagram account:
