The Mandalorian will look past the routine premises of good and evil, instead opting to explore the more ambiguous sides of the Star Wars universe.
In an interview with AP News, stars Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Narcos) and Gina Carano (Scorched Earth) discussed how the show will approach good and evil. “We can be pulled to any side, any one of us. Even when you begin the journey with The Mandalorian, you aren’t sure what side you’re on,” Carano said.
“They separate good and evil so perfectly in the world of Star Wars. And in this one it’s like we’re way more at the center,” Pascal said. “We’re past those borders, and past those very, very linear, very specific lines of definition.”
The upcoming series focuses on an as-yet-unnamed Mandalorian, who takes a job that sends him into the underbelly of the Star Wars universe. The new trailer follows the mysterious character on his exploits. Through space chases and blaster shootouts, the bounty hunter meets a few friends and foes
The series takes place in the intervening years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, following the defeat of the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Endor and the apparent death of Emperor Palpatine. The first season will consist of eight episodes. The Star Wars series' premiere episode will be available with Disney+'s launch on Nov. 12.
