The Mandalorian: First Reactions To The Star Wars TV Show Are Very Promising
The Mandalorian, the Disney+ Star Wars TV show, premieres on November 12.
With less than a month before it premieres, there's still so little known about The Mandalorian, the upcoming live-action TV show set in the Star Wars universe. The series will be a Disney+ original program, helping to launch the new platform, and while there hasn't been much footage released, quite a bit has been screened.
At a press event for the new show, reporters were shown 27 minutes worth of clips from the series, taken from multiple episodes. The clips were edited in a way to avoid spoiling any plot details whatsoever, but they definitely helped to give the press in attendance an idea of The Mandalorian's tone.
After viewing the footage, GameSpot's Meg Downey explained the show is "a space western in the coolest sense." As for details, Uproxx's Mike Ryan revealed, "We saw IG-88 attacking, we saw Salacious Crumb being barbecued for a meal. And Werner Herzog as some sort of galactic gangster who has his own team Stormtroopers."
The first episode of The Mandalorian premieres on November 12, the same day Disney+ launches in the United States. It will then continue to release new episodes weekly until the end of the year. You can take a look at a collection of reactions from the footage screening below.
We saw some footage (not a full episode sadly, but about 30 minutes worth of clips) and friends, it's EXTREMELY cool. A space western in the coolest sense.— The Mothmeg (@rustypolished) October 19, 2019
Oh wow THE MANDALORIAN footage looks incredible. We saw IG-88 attacking, we saw Salacious Crumb being barbecued for a meal. And Werner Herzog as some sort of galactic gangster who has his own team Stormtroopers— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) April 14, 2019
Just saw almost 30 minutes of #TheMandalorian’s pilot episode. It feels like a thrilling return to the original trilogy era of Star Wars. It feels like a big scale movie, not a tv series. They are still keeping a lot of mystery with deliberate cuts in the footage.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) October 19, 2019
Just watched 27 minutes of Mandalorian footage and legit cried. Can’t say much but — This is real and it’s happening and it feels SO FREAKING STAR WARS pic.twitter.com/A56KJBc1GH— Ash Crossan (@AshCrossan) October 19, 2019
Saw 30 minutes of #TheMandalorian footage. Old studio westerns of the 40’s and 50’s with a dash of samurai movie vibes mixed in a Star Wars-y blender. I think Star Wars fans will be very pleased. @ludwiggoransson’s score is marvelous.— Michelle Buchman (@michelledeidre) October 19, 2019
Reliving my childhood Saturday mornings watching Star Wars. The 30 so minutes of #TheMandalorian footage we saw was incredibly cool. The samurai-infused space western you've always wanted with an ice cold lead, a bunch of rad creatures, and a killer score @ludwiggoransson ✨ pic.twitter.com/FBcJf9II6P— Rosie Knight of The Comet 💥 (@RosieMarx) October 19, 2019
Wow. #TheMandalorian is completely amazing. Saw nearly a half hour of footage from what I was told were the first three episodes. Whoever you think Nick Nolte is ... the answer will surprise you. pic.twitter.com/jh3CpZnMW2— Drew Taylor (@DrewTailored) October 19, 2019
