The Mandalorian: Werner Herzog teases his role in Star Wars series


Star Wars fans get a tiny tease about The Mandalorian from Werner Herzog.

Disney has been notoriously secretive when it comes to giving out information about any of their large franchises. There are plenty of rumors swirling around their Disney+ series but fans know The Mandalorian is one of the few shows confirmed to be in development. One of the show’s stars, the infamous Werner Herzog, gave fans a small tease regarding his role in the show.

In an interview with IndieWire about his new documentary, Meeting Gorbachev, Herzog briefly addressed The Mandalorian when speaking about his acting career.

"“Yes, I did some more now. Now this is not a secret anymore, a small part, real small part, in ‘The Mandalorian,’ the Star Wars sequel or whatever you call it. I like to do it because I know I’m good on screen, but only if I have to play a real villain.”"

The statement doesn’t really give much away but it does seem to confirm his character will be an antagonist of sorts. However, the fact that it’s a small part hints that he won’t be the major villain of the series, or at the very least he’ll be an overarching villain who remains in the shadows for a large part of the show.

Not much is known about The Mandalorian outside of the short summary released to fans upon the announcement. The series will take place after Return of the Jedi but before The Force Awakens and will follow Pedro Pascal’s “lone gunfighter” throughout his adventures on the edge of the galaxy.

Jon Favreau (famously known for the Iron Man franchise and The Jungle Book remake) will be the writer and executive producer. It was revealed filming wrapped this February, which hopefully means it will be ready to launch when Disney+ is officially released to the public.

Do you think Werner Herzog will be a minor villain or a major one who won’t play a large part until later in the series? Be sure to tell us your thoughts in the comment section below!
