A Christmas treat for Star Wars fans: The Mandalorian
Starring Nick Nolte, Werner Herzeg, Taka Waititi, Giancarlo Esposito.
This year Christmas is a little early for SF fans. Namely, on November 21, 2019, Disney + surprised fans of the Star Wars franchise with the web series The Mandalorian. The series has eight episodes and is set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi. Two episodes have aired so far, a real bomb for Space Western fans! The Mandalorian - starring Pedro Pascal from Game Of Thrones - is a wanderer and a loner, a bounty hunter.
An introductory scene when he enters a pub on some lonely planet and takes on the bad guys, just like once Clint Eastwood did in The Man With No Name trilogy. And only when he speaks. You can't help but imagine Clint Eastwood clenching his eyes to move a cigarette glued to his lips and squeeze his words in half a whisper. Definitely under Mandalorian's helmet instead of Pedro Pascal could be Eastwood from his younger days. What immediately catches your eye is a fantastic production.
“Disney + surprised fans of the Star Wars franchise
with the web series The Mandalorian.”
The series is so well done in a scenography that it's a real treat for the eyes. Both episodes shown so far are of equal quality and you cannot wait yet. There is no way for fans to wait for the season to be over and look in the piece. This is viewed immediately. Whether you are a fan of SF or not, quality is quality.
The list of celebrities who appear is truly impressive: Nick Nolte, Werner Herzeg, Taka Waititi, Giancarlo Esposito. That things are going well, he took care of no less than Jon Favreau. Producer and director of the Avengers franchise, Iron Man franchise, Spider-Man Homecoming, and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Here, Favreau is in charge of everything: creator, showrunner, and producer. After the first episode aired, a second season was immediately ordered. As expected, I would say. Due to desert landscapes - another association with the Western genre, the series was shot during 2018 ina Los Angeles, California neighbourhood.
