See Hayden Christensen & Matt Lanter Unite At Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Celebration 2019 wound down in a big way Sunday with our first look at The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm's very first live-action television series hitting Disney+ this fall.

Pascal will be joined by Nick Nolte (48 Hrs.), Carl Weathers (Rocky), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (The Mentalist) and Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6). During the panel, Executive Producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni revealed the origins of the show, which is set five years after Return of the Jedi. "Some might say he has questionable moral character, in line with some of our best Westerns, and some good samurai [films.] And he's a badass".

Pedro Pascal will be playing the title character, The Mandalorian and will sport armor very reminiscent of Boba Fett and his father / clone dad Jango Fett.

Carano plays Cara Dune. The show uses some old-school Star Wars techniques and the bounty hunter's ship-named the Razorcrest-is being shot using practical models.

Weathers takes the role of Greif Marda, head of a bounty hunter guild and the man who dishes out jobs to the central character.

Star Wars Celebration is an exciting convention filled with entertainment, celebrity appearances, stage shows, panels, interactive events, exclusive merchandise, screenings, and once-in-a-lifetime glimpses into the future of the epic saga. "We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic". She said filming sometimes ran for 17 hours a day, but knew it was worth it because it was Star Wars.

Favreau: Mandalorians were my favorite characters. According to Pascal, his titular Mandalorian has "got a lot of Clint Eastwood in him". Video from the panel is below, though it does black out during the three minutes of teaser footage. Greef tells him his options: "I have a bail jumper, a bail jumper, another bail jumper", he says, dropping "pucks" onto the table. "It's no cartoon", quipped Pascal, getting some negative responses from the audience who love the animated Star Wars shows.

Directors for episodes of "The Mandalorian" include actress Bryce Dallas Howard, Deborah Chow ("Jessica Jones"), Rick Famuyiwa ("Dope") and Taika Waititi ("Thor: Ragnarok"), and the only prerequisite was they "had to be a fan of 'Star Wars, ' " Favreau says.
