Star Wars' first live-action series to be called 'The Mandalorian,' production underway at Disney
Written and executively produced by Jon Favreau, 'The Mandalorian' will be a large budget operation and it might be the first of several shows that are in development at Disney.
Production of the first live-action 'Star Wars' show is now officially in the works, and finally a title has been revealed: 'The Mandalorian'.
Written and executively produced by Jon Favreau, 'The Mandalorian' will be a large budget operation and it might be the first of several shows that are in development at Disney. The show's titles was unveiled via an Instagram post by Favreau on Wednesday. He even confirmed that it stars a “lone gunfighter" character and takes place between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order.
The show takes place after the fall of the Empire which we see in the original Star Wars trilogy, but before the rise of the First Order, which we see in the current trilogy that started with 'The Force Awakens.'
They have even confirmed via a Twitter post that Bryce Dallas Howard, Taika Waititi and Dave Filoni will be directing episodes of 'The Mandalorian'.
Mandalorians are a culture from the planet of Mandalore, they are often portrayed as warriors and are also known for the distinctive helmets and armor. They are also a popular choice for the cosplayers of 'Star Wars'.
With the show right now in pre-production, one may suggest that the Boba Fett movie might be officially dead in the water right now especially considering the overlapping between both the ideas.
Right now Disney has not made any announcements for casting, but, according to the Daily Dot, there are rumors going around that Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) is currently on board.
The 'Mandalorian' will debut on Disney's streaming service. It isn't expected to launch anytime before late 2019. Apart from this Disney has even announced that they have plans to make various other TV shows and films for the platform that already exists within the 'Star Wars' universe, which includes a new trilogy from "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson.
