    This afternoon, Jon Favreau announced the premise and presumed title of the Star Wars  series he's been working on: The Mandalorian. There has been much speculation about where in the Star Wars Universe this show would take place, as we've known it picks up a few years after Return of the Jedi.





    Favreau announced it via his Instagram account, with familiar yellow-on-black titles that provide a brief description of the premise.










    Sounds very cool! This confirms much speculation that Favreau was developing this series around the Mandalorian culture. Mandalore played a huge role in The Clone Wars, with Favreau himself having voiced Pre Vizsla. It should be interesting to see where what has become of the Mandalorians after the fall of the Empire.





    The show is currently in production and set to debut on Disney's streaming service in 2019. Favreau will serve as writer and executive producer.

    Huh, earlier today I came up with Mandalore as an idea for the title (based on plot rumours). Wasn't that far off! The Mandalorian sounds nice. It's a different title for Star Wars. I'm curious how the general public will take it (specifically those who have never heard the word before). I mean, how often misspellings will happen. "Hey, have you heard about that new show The Mandragoran"? ;)
    2019 is still a guess, though, right? It doesn't have to be a platform starter. I was thinking they will want to make it the main thing for 2020 after the buzz around IX goes down. I assumed it won't come out in 2019 so that the focus was on IX. But here's the question: would the show add to the interest in IX or detract from it? Does Disney have anything to lose giving us those two things at once? They didn't want the marketing for two movies to overlap. Is the show different enough to juggle two things? I guess it is, but I'm still not sure what to think about it.

    "The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order."
    I wonder how much time this series will cover. On the one hand I would like to have it set immediately after ROTJ, but on the other hand I would also like to see "The Mandalorian" working for the FO which is still hiding in the shadows.

    I know the title is what it is, but I really hope this show isn't actually focused on Mandalorians so much. If it is about the adventures of a guy, who happens to be a Mando, that's cool. Otherwise, a Mando-heavy show would be a disappointment for me. Its just we've had a lot of Mando love between the Clone Wars and Rebels. And sure, they are cool and all, but let's diversify our portfolio a bit.

    i agree with you: Sabine and the Mandalorians in Rebels was one of the least interesting things for me.
    but if he's a lone gunman making his way through the galaxy (basically a Fett proxy), that could be interesting enough.
    and if he's on the fringe enough to see the remnants of the Empire scheming, even better. : D

    So, it's set on the fringes with a gunslinger from Mandalore. Seems like it's going to an old-west-ish thing with travelling, shooting people and doing random things.

    Could be like this at he beginning, but I expect the plot to thicken as it goes. I think it could turn into something that will concern the whole Mandalorian culture.
