Looks TIGHT.

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 series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode.

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.

Won 5 creative emmys the other night. We'll see how it does Sunday, though I'm not expecting anything. Wins were for Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single Camera Series, Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series, and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program.

Dane,


Was there really such deep creative issues on the set that the lead actually quit or is that just some TMZ overblown shit? Know anything?

The consensus that I've seen so far is that it's just a clickbait rumor from a youtube 'reviewer' (Grace Randolph). Pascal's known since before the show even went into production that he'd rarely show his face, so for him to leave the show halfway through the season because he wanted the helmet off more just sounds a little off...

If he is gone, it might end up being the least impactful recasting in TV history. Because as I understand it he doesn't actually perform in the suit (that's done by John Wayne's grandson, believe it or not), he only does the voiceover.

All this. Sort of like hiring Stallone in his prime to play Judge Dredd (which was ruined by him taking the helmet off, among other things).

For years, Jon Favreau has been a terror on set. He alienates a lot of people on each project and I've been told this directly by people who have worked for him in the past and some who've worked on The Mandalorian, who've all said that he's extremely difficult while shooting.

I don't have enough information to verify this story although I will say that Pedro Pascal didn't like that John Wayne's grandson was basically his stand-in all throughout Season 1 and wanted a bigger role and input for himself for Season 2.

That said, I have a hard time believing that scripts were re-written on set to cut him out of the series or to reduce his role, as it's been their plan all along to explore other worlds and stories with this series, which has already spawned at least one-spin off.

Also, James Caan revealed this week that there will never be an Elf sequel because Favreau and Will Ferrell did not get along, whatsoever, during the original shoot, which gives even more credence to the notion that Favreau is very difficult on set.

I had a friend that worked on one of the Marvel films earlier this decade and asked "What was it like to work with Favreau?".

The first word that came out of his mouth was "Asshole".
