We’re Loving New Art From Star Wars: The Mandalorian
At some point today [July 2], shirt designs for Star Wars: The Mandalorian hit Amazon.com. The shirts further confirm IG-11 is not IG-88. This is some of the first merchandise we’ve seen from the Disney+ live-action Star Wars series.
JJ Goodman of That Hashtag Show reminded readers of the following reveal from Mandalorian show-runner Jon Favreau:
A thorough search of multiple Amazon sites, including in the US and the UK, turned up zero merchandise featuring the Mandalorian promo art pictured in this article… Notwithstanding, the report does make sense and supports a theory we posted here some time ago, namely that the assassin droid to appear in show is not, in fact, IG-88. Plus… the alleged Mandalorian promo art, if legitimate, is pretty cool.
Order Me One, Okay?
But here’s the thing. MSW is rarely wrong about this stuff. And, even when it seems like something isn’t quite accurate in the momen, it rolls around the bend.
My take: I’ll be wearing one of the shirts real soon. And so will you.
In addition, Ward wrote:
The art style reminds me of some of the art we saw of Rey merchandise for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That content was used on shirts, folders, stickers and so on. I want to say the sun in the background was even used in a similar fashion.
We aren’t sure who originally discovered the shirts but we’re thankful they did and we’ll gladly credit them for their find if it becomes apparent.
