The Mandalorian is expanding its cast.
Breaking Bad vet Giancarlo Esposito has joined the cast of the live-action Star Wars series alongside Rocky and Predator icon Carl Weathers, Supernatural actress Emily Swallow and Omid Abtahi of?American Gods. They join the previously announced ensemble of Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte and Werner Herzog respectively.
The series is in production now, and is slated to bow on the Disney+ streaming service in 2019. An official release date has yet to be announced at the time of this writing.
Jon Favreau wrote the series and is executive producing along with Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson and Dave Filoni. Filoni, Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa and Deborah Chow are all locked in to direct episodes of the highly anticipated series.
The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The series is said to be set about five years after events in Return Of The Jedi in a lawless region of the galaxy known as the Outer Rim - where people both don't know, and don't really care that the Galactic Empire has fallen.
