More good news on May the 4th: The Mandalorian is “phenomenal,” according to its most unexpected star, Werner Herzog. Herzog, who was officially confirmed as one of the new Star Wars series' villains in March, spoke highly of filming the series, and explained how the filmmaker behind Grizzly Man and Aguirre, the Wrath of God ended up in the show.
    “I was invited by Jon Favreau, who started this whole series, to act,” Herzog said. “I looked at the screenplays and I had the feeling that although I know very little about Star Wars, I had the feeling, yes, I could do it.”
