    With a ton of white-hot talent behind it, Star Wars: The Mandalorian is already a highly-anticipated series for Disney+. A new report suggests that a Season 2 for the series - which is the first-ever live-action Star Wars television series - will be ordered by Lucasfilm before Season 1 even airs.





    Our pals over at HN Entertainment have heard that the series, which is expected to be the 'killer app' of the service at or near its launch late this year, is going to go on for at least another year. A source of theirs has told then that Lucasfilm are ready to greenlight another season of the show, which would suggest that not every program that they develop for Disney+ will last for only one season, which could spell good news for Diego Luna if the upcoming series starring Cassian Andor is a hit. They also make mention that they've been hearing rumors about a potential series about Obi-Wan Kenobi, which we were able to tell you was moving forward last month.



    The talent behind the series includes Jon Favreau, who will be writing and showrunning the series, alongside directors Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika Waititi, the latter two reportedly have roles in the series. Aside from Howard and Waititi, the cast of the show includes Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, and Werner Herzog. Creed and Black Panther composer Ludwig Göransson is handling the score for the series. Favreau and Filoni will executive produce The Mandalorian alongside Colin Wilson and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.



    After ensuring that their dominance of the box office market will continue into the foreseeable future with their acquisition of 21st Century Fox, Disney are looking to gain a strong foothold in the streaming market, which is potentially even more profitable. Disney+ will start things off with a massive library of content of material from across their libraries, which when combined with the libraries of Fox, contain over a century of film and television content (some of which will also go to Disney's older-skewing streaming service, Hulu). Once that's been established, then Disney's key focus with Disney+ going forward will be to increase their output of content by firing on all cylinders with all of their content-producers, including the main Disney label, Pixar, The Muppets, and National Geographic. (At this time, it has yet to be confirmed if family-friendly Fox content - aside from National Geographic - will make it to the service.)

    But the likes of Disney's two biggest franchises - Marvel and Star Wars - are expected to be the key things driving subscriptions from the most dedicated of fans. As Netflix and Amazon Prime invest big in shows like The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, Disney will continue to expand the scope of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and flesh out multiple eras of the Star Wars galaxy, both of which should set the stage for future films in both series. Securing Jon Favreau, who had hand in successfully kickstarting the MCU, for continued development on a future Star Wars project is a smart move by Disney, who have him to thank for a massive hit in their live-action adaptation field with The Jungle Book and their soon-to-be-huge photorealistic remake of The Lion King. The idea of an early renewal on The Mandalorian isn't too surprising, either - after all, some wrap photos did explicitly note the crew's success on the show's first season.



    The show's premise is as follows:

    The Mandalorian Season 1 will be released sometime before the end of the year.

    What do you guys think: will they drip-feed season 1 to us or release the whole thing at once?

    Considering Disney's mantra is "make more money" I assume it'll be weekly that way you can't just make a free month subscription, binge it then quit. Weekly requires at least 3 months of paying (assuming you start when Ep. 1 is released). I also bet that they'll release The Clone Wars season toward the end of the Mandalorian season that way the weekly release stretches another few months. I hope I'm wrong but this makes the most sense to me.
