LEAKED: The Mandalorian Footage from Star Wars Celebration Features IG-88
Footage from Star Wars and Disney+’s The Mandalorian has leaked online.
Watch it below.
The scene begins with Carl Weathers’ Greef Carga negotiating with Pedro Pascal’s The Mandalorian for a job. Weathers is a tough bargainer, but is able to convince Pascal’s The Mandalorian to take the job.
The scene then clips to a shot of a Kowakian monkey-lizard being spun on a spit. Star Wars fans will recognize the species as Salacious B. Crumb was Jabba the Hutt’s pet.
From there we see The Mandalorian walking through an open market before he heads down an alley and begins beating on a door. He shows an identification card and is allowed entry into the building where a droid escorts him deeper into the building.
As they get deeper into the building, a door opens and a handful of Stormtroopers are gathered inside. It appears Carga was actually working with the Empire for the job.
Tensions get heated as a Dr. Pershing enters the room. The Mandalorian quickly draws his gun and points it straight at the Doctor. The Stormtroopers follow suit, but aim their sights at Pascal’s The Mandalorian.
The Empire leader played by Warner Herzog attempts to diffuse the situation and there’s some fun banter, when The Mandalorian tells the Stormtroopers to lower their weapons first. They note they have him outnumbered 4 to 1 to which The Mandalorian replies, “I like those odds.”
The Stormtroopers eventually lower their weapons as The Mandalorian and the Empire leader begin negotiations. The Empire leader takes out what looks like a silver brick and it appears to be some form of highly valuable currency. In fact, he promises there is a container of the currency waiting for him after he delivers to them an asset alive. However, he does note that proof of termination is also acceptable, but will come at a reduced reward.
The clip then transitions to a whole new scene. We get a brief shot of what appears to be The Mandalorian’s ship before Gina Carano’s Cara Dune shows off her MMA skills against The Mandalorian.
We then get a clip of the Empire leader providing a voiceover. He states, “The Empire improves every system it touches.” Meanwhile we see what looks to be Weathers’ Carga actually leading Empire soldiers and having them perform door to door raids and torching people’s homes.
We get more of the Empire voiceover, “Judged by any metric, safety, prosperity, peace. Comparing Imperial rule to what is happening now is a world more peaceful since the revolution. Look outside. There’s nothing but death and chaos.”
While this voice over plays we get a ton of actions scenes as well as cameos. IG-88 shows up.
There’s ton of fight scenes showing off just how much of a badass The Mandalorian is. We even get scenes of him taking on Imperial troopers using some unique gadgetry. He even appears to electrocute one of them with a staff weapon.
It definitely looks like there might be some double crossing happening throughout this series.
The Mandalorian arrives on Disney+ on November 12, 2019.
What do you make of this leaked footage? Are you excited for The Mandalorian?
**Editor’s Note** The droid that looks like IG-88 might in fact be a new droid called IG-11. A report from EW states, “It turns out the droid in The Mandalorian is not IG-88, but a similar robot. The one in the show is known as IG-11.” It’s rumored that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi provides the voice for IG-11.
