Disney+ has released the second trailer for the highly anticipated and very ambitious The Mandalorian. Set five years after the events of The Return of the Jedi and twenty-five years before The Force Awakens, the series centers on a nameless gunfighter who is trying to survive in the era of the new republic by heading to the outer rim of space.
Pedro Pascal will play the titular character in the new series which was created by Jon Favreau. Check out the trailer below.
Okay, I am just going to say it: Taika Waititi‘s Jojo Rabbit is one of the best films of the year. The anti-hate satire centers on a ten-year-old boy named Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) who has some difficulties getting through Nazi camp, and the only person who can help him with his troubles is his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Waititi). When he discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has been hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic, Jojo learns that everything he’s been told about the Jews may have been wrong.
Though the film is out in limited theaters now, Fox Searchlight has been releasing a series of clips and trailers after the film received critical acclaim from critics who viewed it at various film festivals. But this latest featurette is perhaps the best behind the scenes look at the film as it offers some insight from Waititi, as well as fellow co-stars Johansson, Sam Rockwell, and Stephen Merchant. Check out the video below.

There’s also been previous announcements of new additions to the cast.
