    Star Wars "The Mandalorian" Live Action TV Series

    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), and 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.

    This looks REALLY cool. Lots of potential, and so glad it's somebody different than Fett. I really trust Favreau, and Filoni. I wish they'd be given feature films to do. So glad to see Taika Waititi is one of the directors. I hope that means it won't always be deadpan serious, and have some fun and humor as well.

    OK Disney, you'll get my money.

    It sounds like a series that I'll really like.

    This is exactly what I wanted from a Star Wars spin-off. A story that's pretty much it's own beast - a new character with a yet to be learned backstory that has the entire Star Wars universe to play in without fear of going against canon. Plus I can only imagine the action figures we'll get from this!
    "It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life."

    Rumours and speculation have already started to run rampant... including the theory that the main character in the show will be a female Mandalorian.

    Won't be crap. Dave Filoni is one of the Executive Producers.

    SW Cosplayers everywhere are rejoicing that there's finally Mando armor without a codpiece, which will allow them to actually sit in a chair in their costumes.

    As for the rumor of the Mandalorian being female, I wonder if that is fans subconsciously associating the chrome helmet with Captain Phasma. Wouldn't it be delightful if the helmet stayed on for the ENTIRE series? (Final episode, character is shot down, they are about to take the helmet off and it cuts to black. ). I know that would drive some people crazy who need to have every blank filled in, but for me it would be so tantalizing to tease the mystery. Sort of like how Ditko would always obscure the face of Norman Osborn before he was revealed to be the Green Goblin.

    Depends on how much involvement Kathleen Kennedy has.
