The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars TV series, made its debut with the launch of Disney+ on November 12. In the first episode of the new show, which is set after the fall of the Empire in Return of the Jedi, we meet the main character, a Mandalorian played by Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones). He is a bounty hunter and a skilled fighter, described as the “best in the parsec” by one Greef Carga (Carl Weathers).
Carga tips off The Mandalorian to a secretive job with a man only known as The Client (Werner Herzog), a member of the fallen Empire who promises the bounty hunter rare Beskar iron as payment in exchange for delivery of “the asset.”
