Star Wars: The Mandalorian
Since Disney acquired the Star Wars rights, the franchise has been revitalized little by little, picking up a story that represents a milestone to many generations and that continues attracting more and more fans eager to watch new stories of the great space opera.
Since 2015, with the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we have received a new film production every year, expanding the Skywalker universe to galaxies farther away.
The next installment will be The Mandalorian, the first Star Wars live action series, which will be released in November 2019 with the debut of Disney+, the new Disney’s streaming platform.
In The Mandalorian we will see the story of a bounty hunter from the Mandalorian clan, a group to which other recurring characters of the saga, such as Boba Fett and Jango Fett, also belong.
The series will star Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) and will be located approximately 3 years after Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983). In the show, we will see the galaxy after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.
The Mandalorian will take features of the western genre to tell its story, featuring actors such as Gina Carano (Deadpool, 2016), Werner Herzog and Taika Waititi (Avengers: Endgame, 2019), under the lead of Jon Favreau (Iron Man, 2008) as the showrunner.
We will enjoy The Mandalorian while we wait for the conclusion of the new trilogy with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which will be released in December 2019.
