The Mandolorian live action TV show revealed


Andy

The Mandalorian has been revealed as the first live-action Star Wars television series, and is now currently in production by Lucasfilm. It will be released exclusivley via Disney's own streaming service.

The Mandalorian is set three years after the events of Return of the Jedi and the apparent death of the infamous Mandalorian bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Through the series we will follow the exploits of a lone gunfighter in the outer rim of the galaxy, far from the centre of power of the fledgling New Republic.

The series will be written and executive produced by Jon Favreau, director of Iron Man and Iron Man 2 Marvel movies. He is no stranger to Star Wars, having lent his voice to characters in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) will be directing the first episode, with other announced episode direcots including Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). 

Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson join Jon Favreau as executive producers, and Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.

    • The Mandalorian

      So yeah, the new live action TV show was announced recently.
      Sadly it's only going to be on Disney Play or whatever their silly platform is called. Will definitely have to subscribe to that and not find some other way around it... 🤔
      I put a bit of an article up here with some of the known details, I'll try and add more as I find out about it but keeping on top of things is hard, lol
       
    • The Mandalorian

      After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Warsuniverse. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
    • Boba: a Star Wars Story

      So it's been confirmed, per THR:

      And a million fanboys lost their minds.
       
      Now I suppose it's speculation time... Time period? Casting Boba?  And will this be one of the other films Alden has signed on to play  Han in?
      Do you want to see what he was up to pre-ANH? Or perhaps, have Disney rescue him from the sarlacc ala the Legends/EU and do something post-ROTJ?
      Bring Temuera back?
       
       
      Dun dun dun...

      Synopsis: This project was once rumoured to be based on the story of fan-favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett, and was previously assigned to Josh Trank to direct.

    • Two more spin-offs confirmed

      Well, we're already getting confirmation of an Obi-Wan solo film, but now Variety via Joblo.com is adding two more films to the list:
      Boba Fett. And Jabba the Hutt.
       
      Boba had been rumored for quite some time, so I don't think it's much of a surprise.
      But reportedly the Jabba one was also rumored for a while (though I never heard about it?) and I think it's a bit more surprising.
       
      So which are looking forward to more? Boba or Jabba?
       
      I'm not much of a Boba Fett fan, but he's still more interesting than Jabba, I think.  Disney could grabbed any other ancillary Star Wars character, and it would be more interesting than Jabba, personally speaking.
      Are there other characters you'd like to see get a spin-off?
