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.

Stop being fragile snowflakes and understand women aren't threatening you or your way of life. Including them in the conversation, E.g. writing, directing, or starring, brings in new ideas and view points. I don't know what it's like to be a woman or understand their day to day life. The more I read from female writers the more I am embarassed by my behavior earlier in life because of things I never thought of or realized. Yes, sometimes the story might be over the top, but I imagine its the same for a woman when she watches something like Rambo destroying an entire village.

Who cares. Aliens and Terminator were great, and in fact, vastly superior to the shit we're getting now. Because the female leads stood on EQUAL FOOTING with the men in those movies. We didn't need feminazi bullshit.

Remember how badly ghostbusters failed?

Eliminating men to promote women is not the way.

The prequels, while bad at he time, are now great strictly because of /r/PrequelMemes.

At least the characters are somewhat memorable.

No one gives a shit about a single character in the sequel trilogy.

Except Kylo. The one with an arc.

Itís just tell a good story. Wonder Woman was really good. And Gal Gadot was a badass, better than the men. Just tell a good story and itís fine.

Oh fuck off. Kathleen Kennedy isn't all "women." Calling her out for ruining Star Wars isn't sexist; it's the truth. Calling her out for using Star Wars to shove a political agenda down our throats isn't an attempt to chain all women to the stove. Ever seen Zero Dark Thirty? It's a darkly violent movie directed by a woman and starring a woman in the lead role, and I absolutely love it. Too bad Kathryn Bigelow wasn't the producer/writer/director of Last Jedi; it wouldn't have sucked. If anything, your post is the most sexist thing I've seen lately, because apparently all women need so-called enlightened douchebags like you to pat them on their heads, hold their hands and lead them out of the house so they can fulfill their impossible dreams of becoming directors and studio executives. Otherwise, they're doomed to spend their lives baking cookies, right?

And what the fuck does Rambo have to do with anything? If anybody, male or female, goes into a Rambo movie and is surprised that he shoots shit up is a moron. What Kennedy did to Star Wars the equivalent of Rambo going into an enemy village and spending the entire film knitting baby booties while the enemy soldiers kill everybody.

If you want to be embarrassed about something, it should be that somebody at CNN has your balls in a jar.

The issue with Captain Marvel wasnít the film itself so much as it was Larson attaching a SJW ďvibeĒ to it off screen. She keeps quiet and you donít see or hear much of anything about the film in that regard.
People are conflating actors and the characters they play? Seriously? I guess I assumed we'd evolved beyond that, but I suppose the old people that threw crap at the actress that played Nellie Oleson weren't so crazy after all.

I certainly hope they don't try to cast Jerry's dentist as a drug kingpin.

Well, I was rather young at the time, but I don't recall Alison Arngrim coming off as an aloof asshole in press interviews before the show came out.

It was the actress that was conflating her positions with the movie. Muse about her lack of evolving.
