“Narcos” cop Pedro Pascal once again has his work cut out for him in the new trailer for “The Mandalorian,” Jon Favreau’s “Star Wars” spinoff show arriving with Disney’s brand-new streaming service in November.
Billed as a space western, the live-action series is set five years after the events of “Return of the Jedi.” Pascal, who also portrayed Oberyn Martell on “Game of Thrones,” stars as a the Mandalorian himself, a chrome-plated, morally dubious bounty hunter who says a lot without saying much at all in the trailer as he fights storm troopers, wrangles space rhinos, and bops around the galaxy shooting anyone who stares at him sideways.
Pascal is flanked by an all-star cast, including Nick Nolte, Stern Show veteran Bill Burr, fighter turned actress Gina Carano, “Rocky” star Carl Weathers, “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi, “Breaking Bad” kingpin Giancarlo Esposito, and legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog.
“It is a shame that your people suffered, but bounty hunting is a complicated profession,” Herzog’s enigmatic character tells the Mandalorian (above). “They said you were coming. They said you were the best in the parsec. Would you agree?”
“The Mandalorian” begins streaming Nov. 12 on Disney Plus.
