Little House On The Prairie

Entertainment Weekly keeps covering the upcoming Mandalorian series on Disney+ with new photos and quotes by cast and crew. The latest photo shows the Mandalorian, a woman you saw in the trailer, when she held a child – her name is Omera – and Cara Dune, as they seem to enjoy a lovely and calm evening.

Were it not for the costumes you might mistake the latest photo as something from a Western. Once more underlining the Western and frontier vibe of the show.

The article makes some interesting observations:

Indeed, The Mandalorian’s clearest inspiration is the first act of A New Hope, which played like a Western set in space: exotic creatures, smugglers, soldiers, and bounty hunters leading rough lives in an overlooked outlaw territory.

And showrunner Jon Favreau makes this statement about the philosophy behind the show:

“I’ve always been curious what the other people in the cantina are up to,” Favreau says. “We’re digging really deep in the toy chest and pulling out the action figures that people were always curious about and were not quite in the center frame, but have a lot of potential.”

I suppose every action figure collector loves hearing that.

About the fact that the Mandalorian will most likely almost never remove his helmet and remain a masked character for most of the show, Favreau says this:

“What’s remarkable is when you see the whole stretch of the first season how engaging the character is. It’s amazing how many Star Wars characters are emotionally engaging that aren’t even anthropomorphic. R2-D2 is my favorite character and he barely has an eye.”

Taika Waititi, who not only directs an episode but also voices IG-11, says this about the assassin droid:

“[IG-11 is] very innocent and naive and direct and doesn’t know about sarcasm and doesn’t know how to lie,” Waititi says. “It’s like a child with a gun.”

That sounds like a lot of fun.

And the new photo once more hints at the theory that either the mother and/or the child from the trailer is the bounty the Mandalorian was ordered to kill or kidnap, but for some reason he seems to be switching sides, becoming a protector instead of a bounty hunter.
