Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! 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. The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode.

Additional episodic directors include

Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones)
Rick Famuyiwa (Dope)
Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates)
Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok)

It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson.
Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.
Stay tuned to StarWars.com for updates.

"The Rifleman" "The Mandalorian" seems to be a combo of Holdiay Speacial Boba and player 2 Jodo Kast from Masters of Teräs Käsi. Wait 'till Boba catches on to this guy stealing his m.o. It didn't work-out for Mr. Kast in the Legends story. Will we get to see the dude's face?

Cool. Interesting that this series will mark the first time women have directed any SW material. And one of them is Ron Howard's daughter.

Apparently, Boba's 1313 concept suit is also a big influence:

Is Favreau literally writing every episode (a la Julian Fellowes)? I find that hard to believe.

Update: Supposedly, there are eight episodes (see below). Does that mean 8 hours of screen-time?

  • 101 Dave Filoni
  • 102 Rick Famuyiwa
  • 103 Deborah Chow
  • 104 Bryce Dallas Howard
  • 105 Dave Filoni
  • 106 Rick Famuyiwa
  • 107 Deborah Chow
  • 108 Taika Waititi

So, it very much looks like the scripts written for the cancelled Underworld show will be used for the new Mandalorian show. They are just changing a few things, like using a new "Fett" and setting it after ANH instead of before. This makes sense since so much work went into pre-production.

I think that E_CHU_TA!'s collection and presentation of all of the prior Mandolorian-approaches does a great job of illustrating his observations. A great collection of evidence.

I like the look of him. Virtually every piece of armor that he's wearing doesn't match the other, which is telling. One piece of armor even looks like a severely repurposed droid thigh. I enjoy the storytelling that's being conveyed in his appearance, but one aspect jumps out at me...

For as severely used/abused the solid portions of his armor are, the fabric portions look brand new, even his gloves. There might be a good reason for that. Right now, I just wish that they would've worn out and dirtied up some portions of his fabric undergarments. Would've tied all of the pieces together a bit better.

Anyway, overall his appearance is very enticing.

And that makes this my first positive post about Star Wars in a very, VERY long time.

I have a lot of faith in Favreau. Marvel/Disney owes him a lot, being that he's the one that really successfully launched the multi-film cinematic Marvel universe. From any angle, "Iron Man" was a spot on perfect film.

Am I the only one who finds the Mandalorians to be sorta ... boring? So they have jet packs, some of them. OK. Good for them. But beyond that, what ...? I find the twileks to be much more fascinating. A guy in a suit, not so much. Boba/Jango/TheMandalorirn always seemed like Vader -Light to me. A supersuit guy - but without the force choke.
We keep hearing about this great big galaxy ... but we keep getting the same things over and over. Madalorians, Vader, the First Odor. Sigh.

Maybe SW X, XI, and XII will explore new territory. I don't think this 8 hour miniseries will do much to expand our playground. Clone Wars showed us all kinds of interesting corners of the galaxy. I guess live-action is too expensive for that. Fingers (and lekku) crossed.

The very first positive post in a long time? What about when the news broke of the return of The Clone Wars?

Are they even doing those, though? That would be great, but I thought it was said that RJ's trilogy would be a different era and not specifically Episodes 9, 10 and 11. Same with the GoT guys.

Also, and 8 hour series is basically the same length if not longer than a film trilogy.

"I am Boba Fett."

Beyond the clear inspiration for the weapon, I wonder if the characterization of the titular Mandalorian will also be influenced by the Boba Fett of the holiday special. Less sinister, more dignified.
