The Mandalorian (upcoming Star Wars tv series, 2019)

In summary, the two clips show footage of the setting and background of the upcoming Star Wars tv series The Mandalorian, which is set to premiere on November 12, 2019. The clips show that the story seems to be based around a hired gunfighter who gets called upon to solve problems without using his gun, and that the armour shown looks pretty useless.

Since there are many Star Wars and SF fans on PF, I wanted to share some info about the upcoming Star Wars tv series The Mandalorian, scheduled to premiere November 12, 2019.

Minor spoilers below (info about setting and background):
The tv series takes place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and it is about a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.

Some brief info about Mandalorians:
  • Mandalorians are a fictional race which haven't been featured in any of the Star Wars movies.
  • Mandalorians are featured in the excellent video games Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2.
  • Boba Fett, the bounty hunter in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi is not a Mandalorian, but he wears Mandalorian armor.

As far as I know there has not been any teaser or trailer released yet, but here are two clips about the tv series, including some footage.

(there is some footage from the tv series at 2:33 and forwards)
Considering the few things I have seen and heard about it, I think it has potential (if the storywriting is good), so I will be watching it later this year.

Wow, this sounds like Paladin in Have Gun, Will Travel a 1960’s modern western of a hired gunfighter who gets called upon to solve problems many times using his wits and without using his gun.

Don't know what era this is supposed to be set in, but it looks more like a B grade scifi to me. The armour shown looks pretty useless. I doubt whether he can see out of his helmet and he seems to have no peripheral vision at all. Parts of his arms are exposed and I doubt if any of his armour would stop a modern armour peircing round.
The socalled weapon he holds looks more like a popgun than a real weapon. As for his long arm , reminds me of a old middle eastern musket. Nah, not impressed with any of it as far as reality of the science and story line goes, won't bother watching.

It's Star Wars, forget reality :biggrin:. Many species breathe the same air and can deal with the same gravity, to mention two of many strange things in the Star Wars universe.

And we have got trailer number 2:


Quote from trailer:
"They said you were the best in the parsec"
...but... but... I thought parsec was a unit of length. Oh, it's Star Wars, well, never mind then, who cares? 😄

Edit: If we were to interpret the use of parsec here kindly, it could mean within a sphere with a radius of one parsec. But, then again, it's Star Wars, so who cares? :smile:
