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. Following that, Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), Gina Carano (Deadpool) and Carl Weathers (PREDATOR) took to the stage to discuss their characters. "Some might say he is a questionable moral character, which is in line with some of our best Westerns". Weathers is Greef, the leader of a group of bounty hunters who hires Pascal's Mandalorian for an assignment.
Carano will reportedly be playing Cara Dune, an ex-rebel shocktrooper. One of the features of this booth allowed attendees to check out some of the toys, clothing and merchandise they will be able to purchase at the Star Wars-themed attraction once it opens at Disneyland on May 31 and at Disney World August 29. "The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the empire and before the emergence of the First Order".
Star Wars Celebration is an exciting convention filled with entertainment, celebrity appearances, stage shows, panels, interactive events, exclusive merchandise, screenings, and once-in-a-lifetime glimpses into the future of the epic saga.

Jon Favreau announced on Instagram that the plot of The Mandalorian would focus on a "lone gunfighter" who operates in the far reaches of the galaxy, outside of the New Republic's reach. While attending Star Wars Celebration this weekend, Matt Lanter took to Twitter to show fans a picture of himself with Hayden Christensen, along with a hilarious caption that Star Wars fans are sure to love.
Favreau has said in interviews that he plans to use the same motion-capture technology that he employed while filming The Jungle Book and The Lion King to create the aliens in The Mandalorian. According to Pascal, his titular Mandalorian has "got a lot of Clint Eastwood in him".
A galaxy far, far away just got a little bit bigger as "Star Wars" fans got a first look at "The Mandalorian".
