Star Wars: The Mandalorian

Quote:
Favreau will pen the script and exec produce the live-action series for the forthcoming Disney streaming service.
Disney's forthcoming streaming service won't launch until late 2019 but details surrounding one of its most highly anticipated TV series have emerged.
Jon Favreau, who is set to write and exec produce an original, live-action scripted Star Wars TV series, revealed that his new show will be called The Mandalorian.
"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," Favreau shared in an post on his verified Instagram account.
Disney is developing multiple live-action Star Wars TV series for its upcoming streaming service, which is designed to rival Netflix. The platform will be the exclusive home for Marvel feature films and original series as well as Pixar and other Lucasfilm properties. So far, only Favreau's involvement in one of the Star Wars TV series has been revealed. Wednesday's announcement offers a closer look at just where the new Star Wars TV series fits in with the franchise.
For his part, Favreau is no stranger to the Star Wars universe. The actor-director played roles in Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

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.

Guaranteed Boba Fett shows up and probably pops in from time to time.

How much your willing to bet. That this Mandalorian character will turn up to be a good guy in the end? You usually have these type of characters that appear to be fighting on the other side. But then at some point. they switch sides and join the rebels. So we can probably expect this character to join the resistance at some point when some sort of betrayal happens.

If you look at Star Wars Rebels. There was a character who originally started out as a villain working for the empire. Then something happened to him that caused him to join the rebellion.

Of course he'll be a good guy. Or an "anti-hero." There's not a doubt in my mind.

I'm conflicted, it looks awesome in many parts albeit unnecessary. On the other hand it's another OT rehash and a mandalorian who isn't boba fett in the same era as him yet the fan service still got me sort of excited.

I'm still thinking we will see a post-Sarlacc Boba Fett in this.

I saw that full scene that leaked months back and that was really, really intriguing.

I know old EU was pretty bad about how many times Boba got eaten by the same Sarlac, but has new EU been that bad?

Don't know, but it sounds like largely the new EU beyond the cartoons is pretty boring, probably because the writers are barely allowed to do anything.

This looks silly fun and better than anything we've seen from Rogue One to the sequel trilogy. It reminds me of something a SWs video game would come up with and I'm ok with this.

So now that everything is 100% canon yet ignored by everyone we now get a boring EU. Ironic.

I'm thinking it will be nothing but a name drop here and there, unless the show goes for another four or five seasons. Like, when they run out of other ideas.

I think I'd love to be wrong, but I don't know. I guess the truth is, like many, I've always loved Boba for his armor. Now that the new guys has just as cool armor, I'm feeling both shallow and satisfied.

I nabbed it off the Pirate Bay. Easy.

As for the show...yeah, I'd say it's decent. Just the one episode at the moment. Not that long either, about 38 minutes plus credits.

Spoiler:
Definitely going to have a "Lone Wolf and Cub" vibe if the end with Yoda Jr is any indication
