Watch The Mandalorian New Trailer

Disney+ has released a new trailer for The Mandalorian.

The first live-action Star Wars series will take place a few years after Return of the Jedi. Whoever the Mandalorian is under his mask, he’s no friend of the Empire. The trailer shows the Mandalorian methodically making his way through former Imperial soldiers. He also has an on-board carbon freezing chamber to deal with his targets. That makes things a lot easier when turning them in for bounties.

Julia Jones’ Omera can be seen as she starts to take off the Mandalorian’s mask. This implies a possible romantic connection between them. Meanwhile, Gina Carano’s Cara Dune appears to have a more professional relationship with him. There’s also a glimpse of Carl Weathers’ Greef Carga, Taika Waititi’s IG-11, and Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon. But we’ll have to wait a few weeks to see how it all comes together.

The Mandalorian‘s first episode will premiere on November 12, only on Disney+.
