Nigeria’s Famuyiwa to direct upcoming ‘Star Wars’ series

First Look of The Mandalorian: Pedro Pascal Describes His Character as a 'Badass'

The cast and crew of The Mandalorian took to the stage at Star Wars Celebration to introduce the first ever live-action Star Wars TV show.

The Mandalorian-which also stars Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, and Giancarlo Esposito-premieres on November 12.

Wearing similar armor to the iconic Boba Fett, who was also a warrior from the planet Mandalore, Pascal's character is a mysterious, lone gunfighter who flies his gunship Razorcrest across the outer reaches of the galaxy.

According to the series' director, Jon Favreau, basing the events on Star Wars to actual historical events, the fall of an empire is usually a time of uncertainty.

Nigerian-American director, Rick Famuyiwa has been enlisted to work on the upcoming "Star Wars" prequel. "And he finds a bounty hunter named Mandalorian. He hires this guy, sends him out there, and Mando does what needs to be done". "But I know a bunch of Stormtroopers", Filoni interjected.

"In the production meeting there were only so many Stormtrooper costumes they had".

Xiaomi Redmi Y3 with 32MP selfie-camera teased ahead of launch
It is expected that Xiaomi might launch the smartphone later this month in India and will be priced below Rs 15,000. Apart from this, Redmi GM Lu Weibing has also refuted rumours of a Redmi smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera.

Carano is Kara Dune, "an ex-rebel shock trooper", who fought in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

"A never been told story during a never been seen timeframe", he says.

Favreau: Mandalorians were my favorite characters. The tone definitely seems like it has wandered from the hopefulness of most "Star Wars" projects, and the amount of deep cut characters and references seems to lend it its own idiosyncratic, esoteric vibe. Are you excited to see Ahsoka Tano back in action? Faverau called them back, and we saw a scene in which Weathers' character is bartering with The Mandalorian.

The next footage shown - a five minute clip followed by a montage teaser - showed the Mandalorian take a job from his guild leader Carga.

A new image was released of The Mandalorian holding a blaster and standing around a corner. "We love pulling all the different stories together".
