THE MANDALORIAN SWCC Panel Pulls Back The Curtain On The STAR WARS Series; New Official Images Released

It doesn't look like the footage from The Mandalorian that screened at Star Wars Celebration Chicago is going to be released online, but we do have some official character stills and plenty of new details.

The Mandalorian SWCC panel is just finishing up, and while some behind-the-scenes B-roll footage and a trailer for the first ever live-action Star Wars TV series were screened for those in attendance, it doesn't look like anything is going to be released online just yet. We did get some cool new images and plenty of details on the show, however.

The Mandalorian will be set 5 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and before The First Order rose from the ashes of The Empire. "If you look throughout history, it's fun at first, but it gets very complicated very quickly. The idea of that world after The Return of the Jedi and what would happen and what sort of characters would survive, and what it was like until the new Republic took over," said showrunner Jon Favreau. "You have vestiges of the Empire. You have only the strong surviving. You have chaos taking over the galaxy."

Pedro Pascal plays the titular "Mando," and he describes his still unnamed character as “a bounty hunter and a gunfighter. A mysterious lone gunfighter with a questionable moral character. And he’s a badass.” He'll be joined by Gina Carano's Cara Dune (Doon?), who is an ex-Rebel Shock Trooper. "I'm a bit of a loner," Carano says of her character. "I’m having a bit of trouble reintegrating myself into society."

The third member of what appears to be a team of mercenaries is Grief Carga, who is played by Rocky veteran Carl Weathers. "He's the head of this guild of bounty hunters," said Weathers. "He's looking for someone to bring a product to a client. It's worth a lot, very valuable. Guess who he finds? He finds a bounty hunter named Mandalorian … he hires this guy, sends him out there, and Mando does what needs to be done."

The trailer that screened is said to be something very special, so we'll have a full description of that later on. For now, though, check out a poster and five officially released stills featuring the show's main players.
