14 Details Revealed in The Mandalorian Trailer! (Nerdist News w/ Jenny Lorenzo)

– [Narrator] Fourteen details revealed in “The Mandalorian” trailer. Disney’s D23 Expo has come and gone, but not before they unveiled
a veritable smorgasbord of info about all of the
properties under their belt, namely Star Wars. There was a new look at “Episode
IX: The Rise of Skywalker” and confirmation of an Obi
Wan Kenobi series on Disney+. Yessss. Pulling out my inner Kip. But one of the things
that all Star Wars fans seem to be super hyped about is the first official
trailer for the first ever live action Star Wars television show, “The Mandalorian.” The trailer was chock full of what makes Star Wars so much fun- interesting characters, alien vistas, cool blaster fights, and
hidden within the visuals were fourteen details you may have missed about the who’s who in the
world of the Mandalorian and the state of the Star Wars galaxy. So let’s break it all down. Of course, before we do, we want to give you a
slight spoiler warning as we will be breaking down
insider news and rumors about the show which might
upset a few of the diehard fans. So if you are worried, freeze yourself in
carbonite until November. Still here? Great. First up, the trailer
opens pretty ominously with busted storm trooper
helmets mounted on spikes in a desert city. Ooooh. According to rumors,
this will be everyone’s favorite Skywalker home world, Tatooine, but there is no official
confirmation of that yet. But it’s the shot that
really sets the time period that the show is set in. According to executive
producer, John Favreau, it will take place five years after the death of Emperor Palpatine
in “Return of the Jedi.” This places the series about four years after the Battle of Jakku, where the empire for
all intents and purposes made their last stand and
completely surrendered to the New Republic. Obviously things are more complicated than that since the certain remnants of the Empire rose again as the First Order thirty years down the line. But at this point, the Empire is mostly
done-zo and the locals don’t seem keen to have Imperials around. Then we see the titular
Mandalorian’s ship. The Razor Crest which is a dual engine gun ship flying over a forest. We see more of this planet
later on in the trailer, letting us know that the Mandalorian will be hunting bounties
all over the galaxy and won’t be sequestered
to a single planet. Honestly, this whole
trailer is filled with beautiful vistas and
it’s incredible to think that this is all on the small screen. It’s insane. Also, we were stoked
to see the Razor Crest battling it out in space. It’s high time we got some more Star Wars-y epic space shoot-outs. Pew pew. Sorry. Plus, John Favreau revealed at Celebration this year that they used practical models and effects to film the spaceships. And oh my God, I am so thankful for that because I’m all about the old
school way of doing things. And since the Mandalorian
is a bounty hunter, he meets up with his boss of sorts, Greef Karga the leader of
the bounty hunters guild who is played by king of stews, Carl Weathers. – Baby, you got a stew going. – [Jenny] The trailer also
gives us our first glimpse at Gina Carano as the
mercenary, Cara Dune. She’s a former Rebel shock trooper who fought against the Empire
in the galactic civil war. Since the fall of the Empire, we can probably guess that she’s finding new people to fight because come on, you don’t hire Gina Carano to
not beat people up on screen. We then get a few glimpses of some classic Star Wars aliens, like ugnaughts and twi’leks, and we know we will be getting other O.G. creatures and aliens as well. Fingers crossed for the
kowakian monkey lizards because Salacious Crumb’s
laughter is the best. (alien laughs) (Jenny sings) The best. Next we see death troopers. While these elite imperial troopers have shown up in the
animated series “Rebels” their only live action appearance was in 2016’s “Rogue One.” But the important detail to note, is how their clean and shiny armor contrasts with the grimey
storm trooper armor we see later in the trailer. The reason being is that
these death troopers work for Moff Gideon played
by Giancarlo Esposito of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Sal”. Moff Gideon is a bit of an
enigma for the Mandalorian. He’s definitely holding onto
his imperial glory days, but we don’t know if
he’s trying to maintain imperial order in the galaxy, or if he’s using his
personal army to become a war lord and take advantage
of the lawless times. In fact, Esposito himself told ET Canada regarding Moff Gideon, will he use his power for good or evil is still a question. Another question we have is
who does this AT-ST work for? We don’t yet know, but it’s worth pointing
out the stark differences between well-dressed Moff Gideon versus Werner Herzog’s character,
whose name is still unknown. He’s obviously ex-imperial
and controls his own storm troopers but they’ve got
a much, much different vibe. Side note, speaking of
those storm troopers, producers Favreau and Dave Filoni brought in members of the 501st Legion, the premiere fan organization that creates screen accurate storm trooper costumes to play storm troopers
for real in the series. I mean, how cool is that?! But what do we learn about Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian himself in the trailer? One of the most evocative shots is the Mandalorian
reaching for his blaster. Favreau first described the
character as a gun slinger and this shot is perfect encapsulation of that Western movie vibe. We also see the Mandalorian in action, freezing his quarries in
carbonite and capturing his prey. And while this dude totally looks like he’s getting cut in half, we don’t think that’s the case. If you re-watch that sequence, the Mandalorian ropes the dude, then shoots the door
controls to close the door, and if he wanted him dead, that’s a lot more steps to
take than just maybe you know, shooting him? But you know, cutting him
in half is a lot cooler. (laughs) Finally, we wanted to end
this on one of the things that we’re most excited for. The killer droid IG-11 who is voiced by Thor Ragnorok director, Taika Waititi. – Over here. The pile of rocks waving at you. Here. Yeah, I’m actually a thing. I’m a being. – [Jenny] A lot of fans
have been confusing this droid with IG-88, the bounty hunter droid we see Vader hire to find the Millennium Falcon in “The Empire Strikes Back.” And they’re not the only
ones making that mistake because apparently citizens within the Star Wars Universe will do the same and assume IG-11 is actually
the much more famous IG-88. So there you have it. Fourteen details you may have missed, but we’re sure even more will be revealed when the first episode
of “The Mandalorian” drops on Disney+ on November 12th. But what do you folks think? What aspect of “The Mandalorian”
are you most excited for? Do you think we’ll ever
get to see the Mandalorian without the helmet or will
they hide Pedro Pascal’s beautiful face the whole time? And do you hope the
other bounty hunters from “The Empire Strikes Back” show up? – Bounty hunters? We don’t need that scum. – Let’s discuss. That’s me typing on a keyboard. Thanks for watching! If you like what you saw, why not give us a like and subscribe? If you wanna get notified

About the author


  1. Jenny either didn’t see the footage shown at Celebration or she forgot about it, but she’ll be happy to know that the kowakian monkey-lizards will be in at least one episode. However, I’m not sure she’s going to like what’s happening to them.

  2. In episode 10, they reveal that Boba Fett is alive. There's also a flashback scene where they rescue him from the Sarlacc Pit.

  3. Who is this gothic angel nerd-flexing on my heart, and whereth may I find more of her?? Hey, a man can love TWO hosts, right? Right??

  4. realized i wasn't even paying attention to the video because holy crap its jenny lorenzo! i love pero like, major throwback💕

  5. YES! Like you sad “the old school way” Where is Jessica!!!!!?????? What’s going on, this is starting to get painful to watch?

  6. It’s a shame they’ve confirmed he’s NOT Boba Fett.. How about that for a reveal somewhere into season 1 or 2.. Could be misdirection though 🤔

  7. I wasn’t sure at first, but this new chobot model with the Katherine Hepburn voice mod might be a suitable replacement host. Keep her online.

  8. I like these other hosts… But did I miss some news on like Chobot leaving? Is she on break? Was there a fallout?

  9. I enjoyed the video, thanks Jenny. Ignore the fools, anybody who thinks of a person as a swappable robot is not worth the time. I hope to see more of you out in the wilderness of YouTube. Welcome to the jungle.

  10. Bring back chobot. Maude and now Jenny are not even at par with chobot. These new faces are trying so hard it is embarrassing. Moving on to rockstar news now. Nerdist is dead

  11. WAIT WHAT JENNY IS PART OF NERDIST NOW? 😮 or is this like a one time thing? Hope she’s here to stay she’s great❤️

  12. you are ok with the old school of doing things lol but most likely you didnt bother to see avenger an a lot of cgi duh

  13. You have to remember IG-88 has four copies. You could call them clones. They are kinda shiny. You could call that chrome.

  14. Some accents just do not work in SW's. lets hope IG-11 doesnt have the same accent as the newer and very poor Boba Fett which made the digital version of The Empire Strikes Back unwatchable.

  15. Nerdist News with Jenny Lorenzo is like Nerdist News with Jessica Chobot, but 70% more entertaining and 100% less annoying! Keep up the great show!

  16. I advocate clicking that "like" button.
    Decent breakdown with a couple bits of info I didn't know, and I've never seen this lady Jenny before but she's got good screen presence.

  17. Thumbs up'd simply based on the fact that y'all referenced "Baby, you got a stew going!" But, yes, also because the video was jam packed with a whole lotta details.

  18. So excited to see the mandalorian! I’m also super excited to see Jenny’s videos! This was fun and entertaining!i love listening to her opinion! I really do hope we see Pedro’s beautiful face!!!

  19. Jenny is fantastic! Awesome breakdown, clear concise knowledgeable and entertaining while not overstepping by claiming to know more than it does (which a lot of channels covering these trailers do, see Emergency Awesomes trailer breakdown that claims an AT-ST is an AT-AT).

  20. So is this the new Jessica Chobot? Personally I feel like she thinks all this is stupid and is just going through the motions to keep a job.

  21. The beginning of the "Snarky Goth Cheerleader" vibe… Ms. Lorenzo has my vote, over the Aussie chick with the randomly-moving lips. I DO like Ms. Vorpahl's "geek next door" vibe, but I'm kinda guessing she doesn't want to be pigeonholed into "The Shadow of Chobot" slot doing Nerdist News all the time.

  22. Wow. You're already going to pick this thing apart based solely on less than 2 minutes of trailer? Just… Wow!

  23. Can I just say how much I freakin LOVE this host! She embodies everything I am (Latina, female & into all great fun things nerd related 😄) she's so fun yet has a lot of professionalism. such a perfect combo in being a host for nerdist 😃 Love seeing her on here, hope to see more!
