Disney treated fans and media at its D23 Expo in Anaheim, California on Friday to the first full-length trailer for “The Mandalorian,” the upcoming live-action “Star Wars” TV show from Jon Favreau.

“The Mandalorian” is one of the debut series for Disney+, the company’s upcoming streaming service. The service will launch on Nov. 12 and cost $6.99 a month.

Watch the trailer above and see if you agree that “bounty hunting is a complicated profession.”

“The Mandalorian” stars “Game of Thrones” alum Pedro Pascal as the title character, a Boba Fett-like bounty hunter. “The Mandalorian” follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The Jon Favreau-produced series is set five years after the events of “Return of the Jedi.”

In “Star Wars” lore, Mandalorians made the iconic armor that bounty hunter Boba Fett and his “father” Jango Fett wore in the films. Boba was technically an unaltered clone of Jango.

The series stars Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers and Omid Abtahi.

Bryce Dallas Howard, Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa and Deborah Chow directed episodes of the series, with Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) helming the premiere. “Black Panther” composer and recent Oscar winner Ludwig Göransson will write the score.
