Taika Waititi Teases His Mandalorian IG-11 Role

Following the debut of The Mandalorian's first official trailer (see below) during the Star Wars live action series' panel at Disney's D23 Expo, IGN spoke to Taika Waititi about his role voicing the bounty hunter droid IG-11.

Rumored to be playing The Empire Strikes Back alum IG-88, the Thor: Ragnarok director and voice of Korg confirmed his character's (of the same "species") name is IG-11.

Waititi explained the challenge of voicing a droid - "... you gotta take away personality and emotion, but it also can't be completely devoid, so it's a really subtle little thing there."

Not giving away much more information, he did state that the bounty hunter has "this really cool arc throughout the series".

IG-11 can be glimpsed in the trailer below.

The Mandalorian will thaw from carbonite and stream exclusively on Disney+ on November 12th, 2019.
