    The Mandalorian breaks new ground for Star Wars, while also realizing a hope George Lucas had for his franchise that was influenced by Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon serials some 45 years ago...episodic, serialized storytelling. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and the rest of the crew have taken that spirit and brought it to the 21st century.







    MTV News attended the recent press conference for the series, and pulled quotes from its creators and producers that help paint a picture of the spirit and heart of the inaugural live-action Star Wars series:

    Dave Filoni reiterates that while this is different for Star Wars, always seen as a mega-blockbuster box office breaking, cinematic event, this format was always something George wanted to explore if the technology allowed it.

    Filoni and Favreau's experiences mesh to complete a well rounded creative Star Wars team. Filoni has worked in Star Wars under George Lucas for over a decade, but had no live-action production experience, whereas Jon Favreau is arguably the king of current live-action filmmaking, but entering his first foray as a Star Wars writer and producer.

    The Mandalorian has something for everyone to enjoy, whether you have been a fan for four decades or five minutes, everyone is entering this story and meeting these characters on page one. With that said, Favreau wears his geek badge with honor, and has no hesitation tipping his hat to old school diehards, proving his worth to play in George Lucas's old toy chest.

    Though the show is grounded in the strong foundation of Star Wars roots, that doesn't mean Favreau and crew aren't taking risks in storytelling.



    That plan will begin to unfold in just six days when The Mandalorian begins streaming on Disney Plus on November 12.
