‘The Mandalorian’: First Look at ‘Star Wars’ Series Revealed by Jon Favreau

‘The Mandalorian’: First Look at ‘Star Wars’ Series Revealed by Jon Favreau”

The Mandalorian, which also stars Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito and Werner Herzog, is slated for a November 12 release.

Watch our report above for the scoop on the show's timing, tone, characters (like Werner Herzog's!), cameos, vehicles, and more.

From what we did see, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was initially joined on-stage by Favreau and Star Wars: The Clone Wars/Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni who revealed how they first met at Skywalker Ranch while Favreau was making Iron Man and Filoni was making The Clone Wars. Pascal describes the Mandalorian as "a mysterious lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy".

It'd be interesting to know how things would have turned out had Jon Favreau not gotten to play Pre Vizsla in The Clone Wars, cementing his ties to the world of Mandalore. Disney hopes to take a bite out of Netflix's market share with its service, which will also include Marvel shows, Pixar spinoffs and live-action remakes of classic Disney films.

Favreau has said in interviews that he plans to use the same motion-capture technology that he employed while filming The Jungle Book and The Lion King to create the aliens in The Mandalorian.

The official plot synopsis for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has not yet been revealed, but is rumored to focus heavily on The Knights of Ren as well as revealing Rey's true identity and the significance of her character.

Carl Weathers plays Greef, who runs a guild of bounty hunters and is the man who sets the Mandalorian up with his latest important assignment.

Scroll down to see new photos of Pascal, Carano and Weathers in character - and if you weren't able to attend The Mandalorian's Star Wars Celebration panel, you can view it in full above.

How does the TV show connect to the Star Wars movies? I specifically say "hear" because unfortunately while footage was shown to the audience in attendance, the online stream was blacked out while it was playing.

The Mandalorian will take place in the same universe as the three Star Wars trilogies, but don't expect any cameos from your favorite film characters. Greef tells him his options: "I have a bail jumper, a bail jumper, another bail jumper", he says, dropping "pucks" onto the table.

Impressive: On Friday the teaser trailer for Star Wars IX: The Rise Of Skywalker was shared at the Celebration.

"I like those odds", the title character coolly responds.
