As you may have heard a million times now, Jon Favreau is making a live-action Star Wars TV series! We have the first image!
As you probably saw yesterday, Jon Favreau posted the following image to his Instagram account, giving us a taste of the upcoming show, The Mandalorian!
Starwars.com released the first photo of, presumably, our hero, an unnamed Mandalorian along with a blurb about who’s involved.
“Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! 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 blurb mentions that Bryce Dallas Howard – Ron Howard’s daughter and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarock) will be directing episodes. The blurb also mentions that Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels alumni and fan-favorite, Dave Filoni will be directing the first episode! It’s amazing news for Star Wars fans that Filoni is finally directing a live action Star Wars property and personally, I can’t wait to see what he does with it!
Until next time…
Another Star Wars Page OUT!
