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.

Hmm. I am just not getting very excited about this one. Of course, I have never given a damn about Boba Fett. Satine Krize, on the other hand, was a favorite - and not just because she got to kiss ObiWan. But Boba, Jango ... and now Pedro Fett ... just a big Meh.

What I really REALLY want to see is Alderaan. So maybe the Andor show will go there. That sounds so much better to me, and I know nothing except the star and the era. But presumably this show will explore core worlds and established places.

Even when the live action was supposed to be Boba, I was rather un-enthused. A hero in a mask? Someone who makes a living hunting other people? None of that appeals to me. I keep waiting for some juicy tidbit to lure me in besides "It's Star Wars!!!" but so far the teases have been more off-putting than enticing. I am far more excited about the extra season of Clone Wars.

‘The Mandalorian’ Director Taika Waititi Says the First ‘Star Wars’ Live-Action Series is Close to the Original Trilogy


“Star Wars is very different to Marvel style,” .... “They know that the tone of the first films really should be kind of adhered to. That’s what the fans like and you can’t really disrespect it I guess is a nicer way of saying can’t put too many jokes in. There’s a bit, definitely my tone is in there, the dialogue and stuff like that.”


“For most kids growing up with those films, [Boba Fett] was one of the most favorite characters, even though he’s barely in the films,” Waititi said. “Just the idea of bounty hunters, the helmets are so cool. Just getting to see characters like that and getting to shoot with them is pretty cool.”


“Favreau’s a genius and so smart and so good at what he does and creating these worlds,” Waititi said. “The scripts are really great. It was really fun doing something in the Star Wars universe. It was every kid’s dream just to see a storm trooper. When you’re doing these scenes with like 50 or 60 of them, it’s pretty amazing. I loved it.”

Thought this was interesting.

Star Wars model and miniatures aficionados prepare to lose your minds

Quote:
SOMETHING VERY COOL WAS SHOWN AT A PANEL FOR ‘THE MANDALORIAN’.

At Star Wars Celebration in Chicago over the weekend, anyone who is obsessed with the models and miniatures used in Star Wars films over the years will likely flip at the news presented during The Mandalorian panel there.

Two key members of the show’s production team, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, showed off an ILM reel that revealed how a new ship called the Razorcrest appearing in the Disney+ TV series was brought to life as a miniature with motion control shooting.

What!?

It’s true.

Favreau mentioned that, initially, they were considering making a miniature for “lighting reference,” joking that Guillermo del Toro has done the same on his films as a way of ending up with a collectible keepsake (“for your desk,” noted Filoni).

“You can’t hang a QuickTime up in your office,” Favreau said.

Filoni commented that he noticed during production that once that miniature idea came to light, more and more people would ‘pop up’ in ILM meetings, including animation supervisor Hal Hickel and ILM Chief Creative Officer & Visual Effects Supervisor John Knoll.

“Then we started hearing John’s making something in his garage,” said Filoni. This turned out to be a milled motion control rig that held a digital SLR camera enabling it to shoot multiple passes of the model.

The miniature itself, meanwhile, came to life care of designs from people such as Doug Chiang and Ryan Church, as well as 3D printed parts orchestrated by Landis Fields. In footage shown during the panel, model maker John Goodson was also shown sculpting Razorcrest parts (“kit bashing,” Filoni called it), including with LED lights for the engines. Hickel, too, was part of the footage, and it was mentioned that he had researched exactly how miniature ships ‘moved’ in mo-co shots in past Star Wars films, along with the way starfields appeared. No doubt many other ILMers are also involved.

Possibly the coolest part of the footage involved watching the multiple passes being shot. “It already feels like Luke’s X-Wing, right?’ observed Filoni.

Of course, the crowd went wild over this, and it certainly taps into what seems to be a desire for more practical filmmaking in big-budget productions. Favreau even finished up by commenting, “Whenever I’ve worked on something, they’re like, ‘You can’t shoot a model!’” Luckily this time they did, and he added that the work, “really reminds us of the old behind the scenes footage. Most people won’t even know, but we thought you’d appreciate that.”

Audiences of The Mandalorian, which airs in November, certainly will.

Watch the full panel below (with the Razorcrest discussion starting 45min in).

From EW:

The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal)
Job: Bounty Hunter.
Detail: Likes to work alone and is rather attached to his stuff (and, yes, he has another, real name…).

Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito)
Job: A regional warlord of sorts.
Detail: The Moffs were Sector Governors of the First Galactic Empire. But now that the Empire has collapsed, the governors are on their own, and some still have armies at their behest — and this one is rather ambitious.

Cara Dune (Gina Carano)
Job: Former Shock Trooper turned mercenary.
Detail: Fought in the Galactic Civil War under the banner of the Rebellion.

Greef Carga (Carl Weathers)
Job: Leader of the bounty hunters guild.
Detail: Asks The Mandalorian to take on an assignment that nobody else wants.

IG-11 (voiced by Taika Waititi)
Job: Bounty hunting droid
Detail: Often gets mistaken for the famous IG-88 in the show (just as fans watching the trailer have mistaken him for IG-88 in real life).
