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.

Wait this is for real?

Shit- I thought this was a still frame version of the sizzle reels of the supposed Neill Blomkamp / Peter Jackson HALO movie.

It's for real fam.

I'm guessing it's actually Boba Fett, they're just saving that for a big reveal at the end of season 1, with a flashback of him escaping the Sarlacc.

Drama!

You're probably right, but I hope not.

The prequels wrecked the already contrived mystique of Boba Fett.

Yeah: Mandalorian armor is cool as shit and their sigil is noteworthy enough Halsey has it tattooed on her arm.. but c'mon: the Boba Fett phenomenon is really outta left field..

Good to see this may not have main characters or obvious prequel like ties to the movies.

Yeah this has always confused me. Cool as shit armor but not much more or even signs of being competent at his job.

Also this brief synopsis makes this sound like a backwater planet Mandalorian western kinda thing which could be cool as hell.

Actually, it was awesome.

Apparently there weren't enough ugly chicks and beta males to make audiences happy.
