The Mandalorian Character Names and Details Revealed
While the first trailer for the Disney series The Mandalorian wowed audiences ahead of its November 12 release date, there was very little dialogue, leaving many to wonder who exactly were these seedy characters in a galaxy far, far way?
Over the weekend, EW got a breakdown of some of the show’s main characters, most of which were featured prominently in the trailer.
Pedro Pascal stars the eponymous Mandalorian. He has another real name, which hasn’t been revealed just yet. Like most bounty hunters, he likes to work alone. Giancarlo Esposito plays Moff Gideon, one of the former sector governors under The Empire. Since its collapse years before the events of The Mandalorian, Gideon has managed to retain a powerful army — and his ambition for power.
Gina Carano will portray Cara Dune, a former Shock Trooper-turned-mercenary who fought with the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. Carl Weathers plays Greef Carga, the leader of the Bounty Hunters’ Guild (which is apparently a thing) who gives Pascal’s Mandalorian an assignment no one else will take.
Finally, it was confirmed that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, who’s also helmed some episodes of The Mandalorian, will voice the bounty hunter droid IG-11. Unfortunately, there’s no word on what kind of fantastic Star Wars name and job title Werner Herzog gets just yet.
Jon Favreau serves as executive producer and showrunner for the series, Directors for the first season include Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), who will be directing the first episode, plus Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) along with Waititi.
The Mandalorian will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. The series will premiere on Disney+ when the service launches on November 12.
