    Full cast announcement at StarWars.com. Cast will consist of:

    Pedro Pascal as the titular Mandalorian. Pascal is best known for his roles as Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones and Javier Peña in Narcos.

    Gina Carano, an MMA fighter who has branched out to acting and is known for her roles as Angel Dust in Deadpool (the villain's female henchman/muscle) and Riley in Fast & Furious 6.

    Giancarlo Esposito, known to many as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

    Emily Swallow, who broke through as Dina in Southland, and has since made herself known to genre fans as Kim in The Mentalist and Amara in Supernatural.

    Omid Abtahi, who has a pretty extensive resume for a guy who only started acting in 2005. Notable credits include appearances in 24, The Event, Fringe, Homeland, Better Call Saul, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and a role on American Gods.

    Werner Herzog, who besides having 30-odd acting credits to his name is also a fairly well-known director who did Grizzly Man.

    And finally Nick Nolte, who has acting credits going back to 1969, so if you don't know who he is, I can't help you

    Not a huge revelation, but from The Hollywood Reporter writer Borys Kit:

    Sources tell me the story is set about 5 years after the events of Return of the Jedi and is set in the Outer Rim, where people don't know and don't care that the Empire has fallen. Gives them latitude in telling certain stories.

    The Mandalorian will have a soundtrack scored by Ludwig Göransson.

    Göransson has composed memorable soundtracks for some of the biggest and most lauded movies in recent memory, including Black Panther (for which he has earned Golden Globe Award and Grammy nominations), Creed, Creed II, Venom, and Fruitvale Station. In the realm of television, his credits include the beloved Community and New Girl.

    Göransson has produced records for Haim and Chance The Rapper, and he recently received three Grammy nominations for his work with Donald Glover (who should be familiar to Star Wars fans as the young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story) on the latest Childish Gambino album.

    Looks like someone let slip that they’ve wrapped production on (Season 1 of) The Mandalorian, before they thought to/were told to take the post down:

    It was announced today that this will be a launch title for Disney+, which goes live on November 12. So I guess we have a premiere date!

    Stuff from the panel (livestream has now ended) that I've been able to jot down...

    Pedro Pascal is playing the titular Mandalorian (no name given yet). He is a bounty hunter, gunfighter, "a badass," and "of questionable moral character." Pascal says he has "a lot of Clint Eastwood in him," and that for research, Favreau had him watch a lot of Sergeo Leone and Akira Kurosawa.

    Gina Carano is playing Cara Dune (good possibility I've spelled that wrong, but that's how it's pronounced). Dune is an ex-Rebel shock trooper, and a bit of a loner who is having trouble reintegrating into society now that the war is over.

    Carl Weathers is playing Greef Karga (again good odds I spelled that wrong). He's the head of a group/gang of bounty hunters, and is looking to find someone to go after a product that he can sell to a wealthy client for a big profit. He's the guy who hires the Mandalorian to do the job.


    Favreau says that they tried to treat it like Iron Man in that it's accessible to newcomers, but they've put a lot of care into it so that longtime fans will have tons to enjoy.

    There is a lot of puppetry and animatronics because they felt that practical effects were very important. They even told a whole story about how the Mandalorian's ship, which was meant to be a CGI model, ended up for a lot of shots being a miniature. They decided to try it just to see if they could do it, and it ballooned into this huge cross-department Lucasfilm thing where even people not working on it were coming out to workshops and such just to learn and see how the show was doing it. Some of the crew members were having so much fun that they were working on the models and even building camera-tracking mechanisms using handheld digital video cameras at home in their garages. It just sounds like they were having a ton of fun. And the ship? It's called the "Razorcrest."

    Another anecdote....the show came 100% from Jon Favreau, he came up with the idea and pitched it to Kathy Kennedy when he already had four scripts done because he didn't want to get greenlighted on one and then get into conflict over what the show was about. We knew this already, but Dave Filoni expanded on it by saying that one day he got a script submitted from Favreau that was dated December 25. Being the holidays, he elected to ignore it for a while...and then he received a text from Favreau saying "I've knitted socks faster than you read" and attached a picture of his feet in Boba Fett socks

    Anecdote #3: In an episode where "vestiges of the Empire" are involved, they did some filming with stormtroopers and realized they didn't have enough stormtrooper uniforms/armour. So they called up the 501st Legion fan club to get a bunch of them to come out. Now...it's not unheard-of for Lucasfilm to do this for events and cons and such, so a lot of the 501st people who came out didn't even realize what they were there for until the saw Favreau and Pascal in the Mandalorian armour. And on the other foot...for a while that day, Gina Carano didn't realize that they weren't actors in costume, until someone told her



    They also played a clip for the audience, but it was blacked out on the livestream so I don't know what it was Hopefully it turns up online sometime soon

    It sounds very-very promising. Rise, Mandalorian!

    I know, I'm just griefing

    Actually the video is especially perfect for the thing about the ship miniature and all that went on with that. The visuals of the intricate work they were doing say so much more than can be done with words.

    Of course there is no reason why Sabine could not appear in it...
