New photos from The Mandalorian set feature a first look at new characters who will appear in the upcoming live-action Star Wars series from Jon Favreau.
The first ever live-action Star Wars series is said to follow new characters in the familiar galaxy after the events of Return of the Jedi. The new set photos from Making Star Wars may feature the first look at some of those new characters. The photos feature a man in a brown shirt and suspenders and a woman with a modern haircut and in what looks like a black robe; A Stormtrooper is also spotted next to them. It is possible the woman could be the recently cast Gina Carano alongside the rumored Carl Weathers.
Other set photos show more people in brown clothing with one sporting a helmet similar to the ones worn by the rebels on Endor in Return of the Jedi. There is also a glimpse at Stormtroopers wearing blue ponchos and someone in Mandalorian-like armor walking in front of them. This could also be a new character or a stunt double for the Mandalorian with no name. You can check out the new set photos over at Making Star Wars:

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The Mandalorian will debut exclusively on Disney+, which is expected to launch by the end of 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Star Wars franchise as we learn it.
