    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.

    I guess Disney doesn't think that what happened to Star Trek in the early 00s — death by oversaturation (four series in a row, with overlap) — is going to happen to Star Wars.

    Hell, apparently CBS doesn't think what happened to Star Trek in the early 00s will happen to Star Trek, either!

    • I agree but so far, Star Trek has been doing well lately. We'll see about the Patrick Stewart series.CyBrainX

    Thats some serious talent. I have a theory that Bryce Dallas Howard is getting a shot at directing episodes as the Mandalorian is Sabine Wren from Rebels and Bryce Dallas Howard has ben cast Wren.

    Excited to see how Filoni handles the chair in Live action too.

    joking aside. Hope it's good. love the idea of bounty hunters as a series. hope it has that dark sons of anarchy / game of thrones vibe and darker tones vs a live action clone wars cheesy fest.

    • Agreed, hopefully it will be a little dark and not so "family" oriented. But whatever, they just want to sell more merchandise.Maaku
    • I hope it's light hearted, has bounty hunter wahmen doing bounty hunting stuff and has plenty of vagina jokes.robthelad
    • ^ So, basically, you want to watch Deadpool and Deadpool 2.Continuity

    Filmmaker Jon Favreau has used his Instagram account to post a new photo from the set of the upcoming live-action “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian,” a shot of a key prop featured in the action.

    Making Star Wars has looked into it and discovered the prop, a weapon known as an ‘Amban phase-pulse blaster’, is the same one used by Boba Fett in the much-maligned “Star Wars Holiday Special”.
