Jon Favreau takes to social media to reveal the first details and title to his new Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian, which will be coming to the Disney Play streaming app.
“After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe,” reads the statement from Favreau, which is rendered in yellow letters on a black background, reminiscent of the classic Star Wars opening crawls. “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.…”
LucasFilm first announced the new series back in March, which sees Jon Favreau, known for Iron Man and Jungle Book, producing and writing.
“If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn’t have believed you. I can’t wait to embark upon this exciting adventure,” Jon Favreau said when the series was announced.
Jon Favreau actually voiced a Mandalorian in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series with Pre Vizsla.
The series is now filming with set pics having leaked online.
