Summary of The Mandalorian Feature in EW

The Mandalorian continues to near its debut on Disney+ and now EW has released its article with some more insight into the series. Here are a few tidbits of information that were revealed in the article that I should probably pass on. Above is another new photo released to accompany the article.

  • As expected, The Mandalorian will keep his mask on for the majority of the show, which was a challenge for the filmmakers. While it did say Pedro Pascal’s face would be hidden for most of the show they didn’t say it would be hidden for all of it.
  • The episode Taika Waititi directs is the season 1 finale. He also plays IG-11 (not IG-88) and claims his voice is a mix of Siri and HAL 9000.
  • Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon in the show said he geeked out when he got to enter a TIE Fighter, so we have that to look forward to.
  • The article claims that there are “no major legacy characters” in the first season.

Hopefully we have more information to come.
