    The first live-action Star Wars television series, The Mandalorian, is headed for Disney+ in time for the launch of the new streaming service, but that doesn't mean that you'll be able to binge-watch the whole thing on day one. The Disney+ original series will premiere with the launch of the service and will roll out over subsequent days.





    We recently promoted an Entertainment Weekly article about The Mandalorian on our official Twitter, and from there we got a reply from the piece's author Anthony Breznican confirming our suspicions that the entire season would not be arriving at the same time:

    A release window for the other episodes has not yet been discussed, and likely won't be confirmed until we're way closer to the launch of the streaming service. It seems likely that the show would have a weekly release schedule, as it would wrap up before year's end and finish airing around the same time that The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters.



    In an age where Netflix and Amazon Prime usually dump all the episodes of a season of one of their shows for their subscribers to watch, it might seem a bit odd that Disney+ would take the kind of approach that DC Universe or CBS All Access have utilized. However, while Netflix and Amazon Prime have large libraries of content to fall back on, Disney+ is - initially - a more niche service looking to take part in the big leagues. To get there, they need to set up a massive subscriber base, and having subscribers stick around for more than one month is crucial to that end. This could change down the road, but for now, expect Disney+ to pace themselves with their original content.



    The first episode of The Mandalorian will arrive with the launch of Disney+ on November 12, 2019. Subsequent episodes will be released at later times, and likely on a weekly schedule.

    This is good news. I am hoping that Mandalorian develops a buzz that carries over from week to week as the community waits for the next installment.

    I kind of like them delaying every release. The whole binge watch mentality of Netflix and Hulu has made people even more impatient and brings a whole new level of entitlement. We're about to have a generation of kids that assumes everything has to be available now rather than waiting for weekly installments.

    Excellent news as I love having that gap between episodes so I can get into the nitty gritty & Talk / Discuss each episode over the course of the wee.

    I don't like this decision. There is no real incentive to delay each episode's release, as there isn't any sponsors or anything who require advertising. Not to mention there's a high chance episodes will be leaked in advance like with all other big in-demand shows. It's smarter to release them all in advance and stay ahead of leakers.

    This is purely a decision made out of greed. By stifling the release they can force people to stay on the service longer, and gain more of their money. I guarantee most people will cancel this service after watching what they wanted. Unlike Netflix and other competitors, it's severely lacking in content.

    Overall, I like this choice. It doesn't come without it's cons though. This is going to make it much easier to get spoiled by accident between episodes. However, for people like us that enjoy getting onto sites like this with like minded people it'll be great for conversation.
