    Default The Mandalorian: Speculation/Discussion (please tag spoilers)

    A thread in which we can discuss the upcoming Star Wars TV series that's going to be run by Jon Favreau (director: Elf, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Jungle Book, The Lion King).

    According to Favreau himself, the series is going to be set seven years after Return of the Jedi (which, by extension, puts it 23 years before The Force Awakens & The Last Jedi). We know from various media that the final defeat of the Empire came at Jakku, almost a year to the day after the Battle of Endor in ROTJ, so it's not immediately clear what the plot of this series will be.

    The show will be 10 episodes long (at least for its first season), and it was reported today by Den of Geek (by way of NYT), that it's not going to be a cheap show--not by a long shot. Disney is apparently spending $100 million on this show, meaning approximately $10 million per episode. By way of comparison, that's about the same amount of money that HBO spends per episode of Game of Thrones.


    10/03/2018 EDIT:

    This show is called THE MANDALORIAN

    Today Jon Favreau announced that the title of the series is "The Mandalorian" in a Star Wars crawl-style image (at the link) that reads:



    The Mandalorian
    After the stories of Jango and
    Boba Fett, another warrior
    emerges in the Star Wars
    universe. The Mandalorian is
    set after the fall of the Empire
    and before the emergence of
    the First Order. We follow the
    travails of a lone gunfighter
    in the outer reaches of the
    galaxy far from the authority
    of the New Republic....

    The RUMOUR (and I stress RUMOUR) that came up the other day was that they may have cast Pedro Pascal as the lead in this show, which would decidedly not be Sabine. Pedro Pascal is probably best known for playing Oberyn Martell in the fourth season of Game of Thrones, and has also had notable roles in Graceland, The Mentalist, and Narcos.

    But again, rumour.

Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for updates.

    Disney Play (Disney's upcoming streaming service) where it's available. I don't think they've specified how it'll be distributed where Disney Play isn't available. My guess is Netflix until they can get the international setup for DP up and running.

    I thought the gun looked familiar in that original photo, but absolutely did not expect it to be a callback to the Holiday Special!

    That’s got to be a giant piss-off. You work on this giant secret project for who knows how long, keep it under wraps the whole time, then not even a month after going public and some jackass goes and does this.

    Wild speculation: we've already met The Mandalorian, and his name is Cobb Vanth. He's the guy who acquires a set of Mandalorian armour on Tatooine (heavily implied to be Boba Fett's armour) in the novel Aftermath, and self-proclaims himself sheriff of a small town because he hates the injustice of lawlessness.

    I have no more evidence about the TV series than anyone else, this is just my speculation that I'm putting down now, probably a year before the show debuts
