Pedro Pascal (Marcos) has been tapped for the title role of the lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy in The Mandalorian . The new series will be exclusive to the Disney+ streaming service coming in 2019. He'll be joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Affliction). The Mandalorian is written and executive produced by Jon Favreau, with Dave Filoni (Star War: Clone Wars, Star Wars: Rebels) directing the first episode and also serving as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Additional episodes will be picked up by directors including Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). While I'm not 100% familiar with most these names, save Favreau, Filoni, Nolte, & Watiti. I am familiar with all of the shows, & I will say there's not one listed that isn't amazing. That said you can only blame the talent involved. So I'm pretty ecstatic to hear this lineup just based on the awesomeness of what they've previously been involved in. I'm actually really excited for this outer rim "western" take on Star Wars. Especially hearing there's a lot of tried & true talent getting recruited. What are y'all's thoughts though? Am I the only one excited for "western" take on Star Wars that strays a little from everything & everyone we're used to? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
