THE MANDALORIAN: New Images Released From Jon Favreau's Disney+ Series

And on Sunday images from the project were released to the public at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. During the panel, Executive Producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni revealed the origins of the show, which is set five years after Return of the Jedi. "Some might say he is a questionable moral character, which is in line with some of our best Westerns". Boba Fett, a bounty hunter who first appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy, was not himself a Mandalore, but he wore their armor for intimidation purposes, as did his father, Jango Fett.

The Mandalorian will be available exclusively on Disney+ beginning on November 12, 2019.

Gina Carano plays a character named Cara Dune. One of the features of this booth allowed attendees to check out some of the toys, clothing and merchandise they will be able to purchase at the Star Wars-themed attraction once it opens at Disneyland on May 31 and at Disney World August 29. The cast also includes Gina Carano (Deadpool) as Kara Dune, an ex-Rebel Shock Trooper, and TV veteran Carl Weathers as Greef Maga, who leads a group of bounty hunters. He travels the outer reaches of the galaxy alone, far away from the laws of the New Republic.

The big news was seeing the first footage of The Mandalorian, which starts with the title character being offered a series of jobs by Carl Weathers' character, but the bounties aren't appealing. The show will be set three years after Return of the Jedi, after the fall of the Empire but before the First Order emerges. It is believed that the new game is based on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and its prequels.

Favreau: Mandalorians were my favorite characters.

"He's got a lot of Clint Eastwood in him", says Pascal, who watched Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa movies for preparation.

Fans who attended in person got to see some behind-the-scenes footage and a teaser trailer, but they blocked it out of the livestream, so we have to rely on the excited tweets of those who were in the room where it happened. "It's no cartoon", quipped Pascal, getting some negative responses from the audience who love the animated Star Wars shows.

"We have you four to one", a Stormtrooper tells the Mandalorian, according to CNET. Jon Favreau's live-action Star Wars series starring Pedro Pascal as a lone gunfighter out on the furthest reaches of the galaxy will hit the streaming service on day one.
