Disney's first live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian has found its star in Game of Thrones and Narcos actor Pedro Pascal. Variety reports that Pascal was one of many stars considered to take on the lead role and is now in talks to star in the series, which Jon Favreau created and will executive produce.

The Mandalorian is now in production for a planned 2019 release on the Disney+ streaming service.

Carano made a name for herself as an MMA fighter, with her intense physicality ultimately landing her the lead role in Steven Soderbergh's thriller Haywire.

Bellew confident he will pass 'ultimate test' against Usyk
Alexander Krassyuk of K2 Promotions, which co-promotes Usyk with Matchroom: " He definitely needs to fight Anthony Joshua ". Unfortunately for Usyk, bookmakers still see Joshua as the favorite, likely due to his power and size advantage.

Although only a loose description has been revealed, the show sounds like it's taking a Western-style approach to its story, with The Mandalorian as a "lone gunfighter" trying to survive on the outer edge of the galaxy, far from the civilized heart of the of the New Republic trying to rebuild after the galactic civil war. But as is often the case with Star Wars-related content, the production is keeping a tight lid on this one and we don't have any information about what character Carano will be playing. That's a pairing I never thought I'd want to see, but the thought of seeing the two of them mix it up with Pedro Pascal makes me want to subscribe to Disney+ immediately. From there, Carano then joined the Fast and Furious franchise with Furious 6 and also starred in Deadpool. Other installments will be directed by Jessica Jones' Deborah Chow, Dope's Rick Famuyiwa, Jurassic World actress-turned-director Bryce Dallas Howard, and Thor: Ragnarok's director-actor Taika Waititi.

The Mandalorian is coming exclusively on Disney+, which is expected to launch by the end of 2019.
