We finally have some details about the highly anticipated Star Wars live-action TV series that will be part of Disney’s upcoming streaming service.
Jon Favreau, who will write and produced the series, recently went on his Instagram profile to reveal that the show’s official title will be The Mandalorian, while also giving us a glimpse of its story.
“After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. 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,” Favreau shared.
There are no indications about the possible premiere date for this Star Wars live-action TV series or any further info, which isn’t such a surprise given the fact that Disney’s streaming service will only launch in late 2019.
But fans are hoping that Jon Favreau will do an excellent job once the project kicks off since the 51-year-old actor and director already has experience of working within the Star Wars universe. Favreau previously voiced the character of Pre Vizsla in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, while also having a role in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story.
It is important to note that Favreau’s show won’t be the only Star Wars live-action TV show on Disney’s streaming service, since the studio is reportedly working on several more similar projects.
