Favreau gives 'Star Wars' fans 1st look at 'The Mandalorian'

LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV playset

On Sunday at Star Wars Celebration in a snowy (seriously) Chicago, we finally got our first substantial look at The Mandalorian. Weathers is Greef, the leader of a group of bounty hunters who hires Pascal's Mandalorian for an assignment.

"After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe", he stated on Instagram.

"The Mandalorian is a mysterious, lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy", said Pascal.

The Mandalorian will launch with Disney+ on November 12. Weathers has revealed that his character hires Pascal's mercenary gunslinger to acquire a precious object for him.

Footage unveiled during the panel showed behind-the-scenes footage of the making of The Mandalorian.

Barr to testify before the Senate as Mueller's report looms
Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report about that could be done in May or June, Barr said. "It was started illegally". Barr also dismissed accusations that he was hasty to release the March 24 letter outlining the conclusions of the report.

Who is directing The Mandalorian?

The first episode is directed by Dave Filoni, the creative force behind the animatedThe Clone Wars and Rebels.

How does the TV show connect to the Star Wars movies?

While LEGO fans are accustomed to a new Star Wars UCS set release every May the Fourth, the company is taking a different approach this year by releasing a highly detailed playset instead.

In other Star Wars news, Electronic Arts has dropped a trailer for its upcoming video game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which in contrast to the Mandalorian is set after the end of the prequel trilogy, when the Empire rises and the Jedi are driven into hiding. This LEGO Star Wars 75244 interpretation of Tantive IV, seen fleeing from an Imperial Star Destroyer in the opening moments of Star Wars: A New Hope, faithfully recreates all of the Rebel cruiser's signature details, including an elongated hull, detachable escape pods, elevating gun turrets, cargo hold and 11 massive engines at the back. The Mandalorian looks to be the first show that takes that mandate to heart: Favreau has emphasized that the main character will operate in parts of the galaxy not yet explored by the films.
