Star Wars Celebration wrapped up today, but not before giving us some more information regarding the upcoming live-action Star Wars television show, The Mandalorian.

Judging by a slew of new images, jaded fanboys might actually give this one a pass.

Pascal will be joined in the cast by Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul; Apollo Creed from the Rocky films, Carl Weathers; Omid Abtahi of American Gods; Emily Swallow of Supernatural; Nick Nolte as the voice of an alien creature; and Deadpool's Gina Carano.

According to io9, who were present at Chicago's Star Wars Celebration Sunday, Disney bigwigs described The Mandalorian as a lone-wolf bounty hunter in the vein of Boba and Jango Fett. You may have been able to infer that from the helmet alone.

Carl Weathers will play the role of Greef Carga, the ring leader for a guild of intergalactic Bounty Hunters.

A trailer for the project was also screened.

Executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni - a creative duo with a brotherly Tom and Jerry rapport - confirmed that The Mandalorian takes place "about five years after Return of the Jedi". When the stream got turned back on though, people were losing their minds... so yeah that's probably going to leak online very quickly and we'll update as soon as it does. The type of characters that would survive and what it was like until the New Republic took over. Each attraction - and even the land itself - will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before. The show uses some old-school Star Wars techniques and the bounty hunter's ship-named the Razorcrest-is being shot using practical models.

The series premieres on the Disney+ streaming service when it launches November 12.

We were treated to the first footage from The Mandalorian and saw Pescal's character seemingly tracking someone down. As part of the panel, a three-and-a-half minute behind-the-scenes reel aired exclusively to convention attendees. He hires Pascal's Mandalorian for the job. For people who have been fans for 40 years, we have a lot in there for you. "But these are new characters and new stories, so it's a great way to invite new people in". Are you excited for The Mandalorian?
