“New The Mandalorian trailer looks like the Star Wars we’re used to,” says the media.
“What the fuck are you on?” says I.
The Mandalorian is Jon Favreau’s new Star Wars bounty hunter series starring Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers and Werner Herzog. And it looks nothing — nothing at all — like “the Star Wars we’re used to”, so ignore the hype.
No Jedi. No Skywalkers. An unexplored timeline (just after Endor). No, this looks like something entirely new. Which is good. Don’t believe the hype. Tell the hype to fuck off.
“Is the world more peaceful since the revolution?” asks Herzog.
One thing that is exactly the same as old Star Wars: Nobody knows what a parsec is.
The Mandalorian arrives November 12.
