Here is the character list for The Mandalorian that premiered on Disney+ November 12th
*The list will be updated weekly as each episode airs and new characters are introduced*Star Wars The Black Series The Mandalorian Collectible
The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) is the main character for the new show. His name is Din Jarin and from his flashbacks he must have some sort of bad childhood involved with the Trade Federation invasions. There isn’t much known about him yet, but he fits the Mandalorian bounty-hunter stereotype from what we’ve seen in the trailer. He’s a lone wolf and a well-known entity in the galaxy. He’s a “foundling” in the guild, which means other Mandalorians found and rescued him. They took him into their culture and way of life, Din Jarin had thrived with them.
IG-11 (Taika Waititi) is the droid bounty hunter that looks a lot like IG-88 from The Empire Strikes Back. He is seen spinning and shooting in the trailer and the first episode with a bunch of dead guys around him so its fair to say that he’ll be causing some damge. He’s parterned up with the Mandalorian for this bit as they agree to split the bounty, but he never gets his cut. They are in the same guild, but the first episode may have cut IG-11’s time short, as he got shot in the head to save the baby Yoda.
Twi’lek the Bounty Hunter (Natalia Tena) is unnamed so far and we don’t know what to expect. An interesting alien species that we’ll be able to get to know more of. Will she be a friend or foe? Also, thats Bill Burr’s bald head in the back.
Bill Burr’s character in the Mandalorian. Judging by the firepower he’s got packing, he’s probably going to be a bounty hunter. He was originally seen with the Twi’lek bounty hunter in the first trailer, maybe they are a team.
Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) is the boss who hires Pascal’s character. He is the leader of the bounty hunter’s guild that The Mandalorian is in. He is the one who pays him and sends him on his jobs, except for when he connected him to Herzog’s character. He looks like he’ll be a recurring role and will be connecting us with a bunch of other bounty hunters. After he connected him with the client he made a pretty penny off of Mando’s find. Then he came after him when Mando tried to escape with the child from the hands of the Empire.
Toro Calican the bounty hunter who teamed up with the Mandalorian in Chapter 5 to go find Shand, the deadly assassin. They met in the Cantina in Mos Eisley and as a change to get into the guild Calican asks Mando for his help. Mando gets to keep the money while Calican gets his ticket into the guild. They journey across the Dune Sea to find Shand and eventually do. Calican turns on Mando and trys to turn he and the child in for even more glory in the guild. That’s where he went wrong, no one crosses Mando and lives.
Gekko, the bounty hunter (Dominic Pace), will be another character in the Mandalorian. Do you guys think he’ll be a friend of The Mandalorian?
Werner Herzog’s character is still unnamed and the role undisclosed, we’ll call him the Baron. In an interview he shed a sliver of light on who he will be playing; “the villain” is all he said. He looks scary from the glimpse we got of him in the trailer. His allegiance is with the Empire and he has a gang of Storm Troopers with him at all times. He sent the Mandalorian on a mission to recover a 50-year-old tracer and the target was a huge surpirse. The result had made him happy and almost childlike, but Mando was uneasy the entire conversation and knew they were up to no good.
Dr. Pershing (Omid Abtahi) is the doctor who is under the protection of the Baron. He takes a huge interest in the target they send him on; he needs it alive, what will it be for? He surprised the Mandalorian during the meeting with the Baron and that’s why we see him draw his guns. My guess is he will be an antagonist through out the show and I like those odds.
Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) was an Imperial solider before the Empire fell. He separated himself from the others because he’s intelligent, well-traveled, experienced AND he has his own squad of death troopers. He’ll most likely try to rebuild either the Empire or his position of power.
The Trandoshans fighting the Mandalorian while he escorting the baby back to his ship. They jumped him and outnumbered him, but he was still able to fight them off. This is an alien species common in the Star Wars lore, Bossk is the most famous.
These are the off world Jawas that give the Mandalorian some trouble. They strip his ship off its parts and he has to go on a mission to get his parts back from them. They’re smart little creatures and close to our Jawa tribe.
This Ugnaught’s name is Kuiil and he helped out the Mandalorian. He saved him from being attacked by two Bluurgs in the first episdoe and he helps train him to ride one. WIth out his help, he wouldn’t have been able to complete his bounty.
In episode 2 he helps the Mandalorian retrieve the stolen ship parts from the Jawas. He’s good with communicating with them. After they get the parts back he helps the Mandalorian put his ship back together. He’s a brilliant Ugnaught and an even harder worker.
His character is wise and friendly and he ultimately just wants peace. But who doesn’t? I have spoken.
This is the metalsmith (Emily Swallow) in the Mandalorain first episode. She smiths the Beskar he gets for the job into a shoulder pad. She’s real eager to have some excess to use for the foundlings, who Din Jarin once was. They have a small moment where he refelcts on his background and has some flashbacks.
She also helps put his entirely new set of armor together and gives him the whistling birds. As the leader and metalworker she helps keep order in the guild and instructs them on how to act toward one another.
This little guy, “The Child”, is the same species as Yoda. Unnamed in Star Wars canon, George Lucas did this intentionally for more mystery around the species. Will this show not only uncover mysteries about the Mandalorians, but Yoda’s species as well? In episode 2 he saved the Mandalorian from being trampled and he used the force, strongly. He will be an interesting character to see grow up.
Cara Dune (Gina Carano) is a mercenary and ex-shock trooper from the civil war. She has some battle experience and we expect her to be a bounty-hunter trying to make a living after using the talents she acquired from the war. She really helped out Mando and the child in finding a safe place to “stretch their legs”. If it wasn’t for her, the small village they took refuge in wouldn’t be able to survive. She has a brilliant mind for strategy and is even more brave.
Omera (Julia Jones) is a friend of the Mandalorian. There isn’t much information on her yet, but she’s lived through the rise and fall of the Empire. She hosted them on Sorgan, the planet in the outerrim. She is a krill farmer and lives a peaceful life, when they aren’t being raided. She shows off some talent with a blaster and that hints to some gnarly past she may have.
Paz Vizla (Tait Fletcher) is a human male Mandalorian heavy artillery trooper. He is a part of the The Tribe and is a real component to them. He was there to help protect the Mandalorian from the bounty hunters guild when they attacked.
The mechanic from Chapter 5, Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris). She works on Mando’s ship and takes care of the child while he’s away trying to make some money, so he can pay her for her repairs. She’s not the friendliest, but she turns out to be a really good person and someone Mando can trust.
Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) is a mercenary/assassin in The Mandalorian. Her character is hiding out on Tatooine because the new republic has locked up most of her employers and she’s a wanted woman for all her crimes and murders as an assassin. She’s one of the deadliest in the galaxy and she may just play a role with Mando. In chapter 5 she got shot, but he went back to check on her, so we’ll see if there will be more of her and if we need to move her into the friends spot.
This is an unidentified Mythrol (Horatio Sanz) from the first episode of the Mandalorian. He is the first bounty that we see him catch. We never learned what he did for the Mandalorian to come after him, but he pleads for his life in exchange for credits, but of course it doesn’t work. On the ship he gets frozen in carbonite as he’s snooping around the ship. This was our first introduction to the Mandalorian’s personal carbonite freezing chamber.
This is the Ravinak. A viscous, tusked mammal that lives on the unidetified planet from the first episode. The lives under the ice and is able to break through effortlessly to catch their prey, whether they are speeders or full sized ships.
This beast is the blurrg, the two legged beast that charges the Mandalorian and puts up a good fight. Kuiil had to come to his assistance. He shocked one and took it home to train and ride it. They are great for crossing the desret terrain of Arvala-7.
This beast is know as the Mudhorn, it looks like the Reek Anakin had to fight in Attack of the Clones. Except, this ones horn comes from his nose and she only has one, the one Anakin had to fight had 3. She is a wooly mammoth like creature that lays single eggs at a time, she is native to the planet Arvala-7.
The Dewback from Star Wars a creature native to Tatooine. They are giant lizard like creatures that dwell in the deserts of Tatooine. Much more reliable than machines in the dusty climate of Tatooine, these have served as transports for natives and soldiers.
This is who we’ve seen in the trailer and episodes that Disney has released, so far. There is a Trailer Breakdown, a Trailer Breakdown II and a What to Expect, and Analysis for Episode one and two the first episode for more information. The first episode finally premiered and it was epic!
