With the launch of Disney+ and its inaugural original series The Mandalorian less than a week away, speculation has started to rise about the debut live-action Star Wars show.
A screencap from an extended look at the series that premiered earlier this week shows another helmeted figure, with a visibly different choice in headwear than the eponymous bounty hunter portrayed by Pedro Pascal. Whether the figure is Pascal's character wearing an alternative helmet or a new Mandalorian altogether remains to be seen.
Of course, Pascal's character isn't the only one to sport Mandalorian armor in the Star Wars mythos; Jango Fett and his unaltered clone Boba were Kaminoan bounty hunters who adopted the look. Meanwhile, Star Wars Rebels introduced us to a true Mandalorian in Sabine Wren, who proudly donned her own armor.
The Mandalorian follows its title character as he pursues a contract in the Outer Rim of the galaxy, approximately three years after the events of Return of the Jedi. The nameless protagonist's mission will see him face remnants of the Galactic Empire defending its last bastions in the lawless frontier.
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. The series debuts Nov. 12 on Disney+, the same date as the streaming service's official launch.
