Jon Favreau is directing this live-action TV series.

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.

The story is about a C+ right now, but the visuals are fantastic. I am getting some Rogue One vibes, but this should be better. Rogue One's characters were forgettable.

FWIW, I heard from a very reliable source last night that the budget increased $5 million per episode for Season 2 of The Mandalorian (Season 1 clocked in at $15 million per).

So now, it'll be in the neighborhood of $20 million per episode, which puts it among the most expensive per episode series of all time.

This is the only Star Wars content that I am actually looking forward to watching. Rogue One surprised me by being a damn fine bit of entertainment, in retrospect my favorite Star Wars movie of the entire franchise and I watched the very first one at a drive in when I was 10 years old. So the comparison is fine by me.

I'm fairly bummed that I didn't see Rogue One in theaters. It may be my favorite Star Wars movie. I didn't go see it because the trailers were terrible. I don't think they had anything really to do with the movie overall.

I’m liking it so far, I think it has some good potential.

Side note for some reason Rogue One is the only movie I’ve only seen once(and it was in theaters), I’m going to have to watch it again based on what you guys are saying.

Rogue One is the best Star Wars movie since the first three, IMO.

On a scale of 1-10, how hard did Clay schoolgirl squee during last night's episode? Myself, probably between a 7 and 8.

Was Boba Fett the biggest doofus in the galaxy?

Mine was an 8 or a 9. I actually had to watch it twice because I couldnít believe my eyes during that 3rd act.

Sure, weíve seen that in The Clone Wars animated series and those story arcs (led by Jon Favreauís Pre Vizla) were always fun and as visually cool as they could be using 2009 3D animation.

But seeing it in Live Action, for me anyway, was stunning.

Itís pretty clear that Favreau has a true reverence for the Mandalorian people and their history, which means that this series could open the door to years of new and fresh story telling throughout the SW Galaxy.

really nice of the mandos to respond to the main character's LFG signal so quickly after the PVP event started

Boba Fett must not have wanted to waste any little birds on Luke :-)

Neither Jango Fett or his clone, Boba, were true Mandalorians, something Favreau drove home last night's episode.

FYI, last night's episode of The Mandalorian was directed by Deborah Chow, who was recently announced as the Showrunner for the upcoming Obi Wan Kenobi series.

From this vantage point, I think that series is in good hands.
