Even with what little we already knew The Mandalorian, a live action Star Wars The spinoff series to be launched at the Disney + video broadcast service to be launched next year definitely sounds like the kind of thing that fans of a certain galaxy, far away, will want to see as soon as it arrives.
The story of a gunman outside the law of the planet Mandalore that does not follow the rhythm of the drum of the Republic. Yes please. And now we have a good idea of who is ready to play the title character: our sister publication Variety Reports that game of Thrones Y Narcos Veteran Pedro Pascal is in talks for the leading role.
He says Variety: "Pascal's name had previously been rumored for the role, but sources say he was one of the many actors considered." Now, the initiates say Variety That the role has been offered and negotiations are ongoing. Jon Favreau wrote the series, which develops after the fall of the Empire and before the appearance of the First Order. Follow the tribulations of a lone gunman on the edge of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.
That piece continues to notice that Disney recently announced Dave Filoni, who worked on Star Wars, the war of the clones as much as Star Wars Rebels, will direct the first episode of the series. Thor: Ragnarok the director Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dope & # 39; s Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones) will also direct episodes.
Meanwhile, production is already under way in the series. And in another Mandalorian Casting news, Carl Weathers of Rocky It has been rumored that fame could also come to the series. That gossip comes from a recent episode of the Making Star Wars podcast, which, despite being a rumor, has been a reliable source of such information in the past.
The series is one of several original programs already presented that will premiere at Disney's rival Netflix next year, which will make it worthwhile to try the service. As for some of the others, Disney also announced in recent days that it will produce another Star Wars spinoff that serves as a prequel to the character Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna. The last time we saw that character in the movie. Rogue One, whose explosive ending should explain why there is nothing left to tell about that character's future.
The Disney broadcast service does not have an exact schedule, but look for it at the end of next year.
