In addition to the Pedro Pascal-portrayed bounty hunter and the original trilogy’s Mon Calamari hero, the new line includes figures of Return of The Jedi Ewok Teebo, a carbonized variant of legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper, now both gleaming with a metallic shine from their updated looks.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
Pedro Pascal (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) stars as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy and is joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool) who plays Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper, having trouble re-integrating herself into society.; and Carl Weathers as Greef, a man who heads a guild of bounty hunters that hires The Mandalorian for a specific job.
The series also stars Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) and Nick Nolte (Affliction). Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens) has been added to the cast for Season 2, and Bill Burr will be reprising his character of Mayfield in the second season.
