New ‘Mandalorian’ trailer drops more hints about Disney+ ‘Star Wars’ series
Disney+ is dropping more bread crumbs about “The Mandalorian” to whet the appetites of fans awaiting the upcoming “Star Wars” TV series.
A new, 97-second trailer released on Monday offers cool visuals and more hints about the much-awaited series, which follows a skilled bounty hunter (Pedro Pascal) and premieres when Disney’s new streaming service launches on Nov. 12.
A tweet accompanying the trailer includes a quote by a mysterious man (Werner Herzog) who hires the bounty hunter: “Mandalorian, look outside. They’re waiting for you.”
The Mandalorian, shown aiming his signature two-pronged rifle, responds laconically, in a metallically tinged voice: “Yeah. Good.”

The video, which opens as an earlier trailer did with a shot of storm trooper helmets on pikes, gives viewers a peek at exotic new animals; a dazzling fight scene with electrically charged spears; fugitives encased in carbonite (as Han Solo was); and sharp pictures of ships traveling space.
