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.
