Now here is an awesome way to start your morning! Thanks to the official Star Wars YouTube channel we can see a 4:36 segment of what was originally a 20 minute screentest for the galaxies most feared bounty hunter. Which would explain why Joe Johnston’s famous pre-production artwork presented the Mandalorian in white armor.

A very big thanks to The Dented Helmet site for the awesome photos and artwork you see up top, there are more photos if you follow the link and even more information on the screentest. For example: “Note that Boba Fett’s serape is a Star Wars branded beach towel featuring Darth Vader.”
