Our first look at the live-action Star Wars TV series which premieres on Disney+
There has been a lot of hype for the first live-action Star Wars television series. Entitled, The Mandalorian, this ten-episode series will be set after Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi but before the creation of the New Order as seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The show will follow a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The series was launched but unnamed back in March of 2019 with the announcement that director Jon Favreau (The Lion King (2019), Iron Man) will be the showrunner, writer and director of the first episode.
The following announcement in October of 2019 officially named the show as, The Mandalorian.
A Mandalorian panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago in April this year saw footage screened to those in attendance (it was blocked from the live stream).
However, phone camera footage soon appeared online and I admit to watching this footage and what I saw looked awesome, so I’m really hyped for this show.
This trailer marks the first time that footage has been released for everyone to see. This is being done as part of the D23 Expo event currently taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.
The D23 Expo is the official Disney fan club event where Disney unveil their latest attractions coming to theme parks and cinemas etc.
The Mandalorian will premiere on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, on November 12th.
Disney+ will gradually roll out across the globe. (UK readers, we do not have a date yet, just sometime in 2020)
