The new TV trailer for Disney+'s The Mandalorian reveals new footage. Nick Nolte's Ugnaught character is also introduced in the latest look at the upcoming series. Disney+ launches on November 12th, which is now less than a week away. It's also the date that Star Wars fans will get their first taste of what The Mandalorian will be all about. So far, we really don't have a whole lot to go from aside from the fact that it follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
Nick Nolte is playing "a jowly Ugnaught alien," named Kuiil in The Mandalorian. He can be heard saying that he has never met a Mandalorian before in the new footage, though he has read the "stories." As for what these stories are, that is a major part of the mystery surrounding the series and its storyline. We also learn that our main character's name will go down in history. So, what is his name?
Even after showing us a great Mandalorian trailer, Disney and Lucasfilm have been doing an excellent job keeping the Star Wars series under wraps. The series features a number of different directors and so far, we have not had a substantial leak, even after the first episode screened for journalists. We haven't even seen Pedro Pascal without his helmet on. Whatever the case may be, the mystery is working and more and more Star Wars fans are starting to get pretty hyped for the show, as evidenced by comments on social media. However, fans in the U.K. are pretty disgruntled that they won't be able to see the show on the 12th.
With a massive budget, The Mandalorian looks like it was shot for the big screen. In the short bits of footage that have been released, it looks like a cinematic experience and like it fits in with the rest of the Star Wars universe. There have been hints of major connections to The Rise of Skywalker, but we have yet to find out what those are at this time. We'll find out in the next handful of weeks when more episodes of the show have been released and when the next movie is in theaters by the end of the year.
The Mandalorian hits the Disney+ streaming platform on November 12th. The new streaming service will be releasing a new episode every week and will not be dumping them all at one time like the Netflix binge-watch model. For some, the weekly release schedule is a burden. For others, it's a better roll out since it lets the discussion go on each week, as opposed to having everything available at one time. Whatever the case may be, fans are excited to see what The Mandalorian is all about. You can check out the latest TV spot for the series below, thanks to the Star Wars Twitter account.
