Original Story —
While things in STAR WARS movie-land may be slowing down a bit, things in STAR WARS TV-land are heating up! Director Jon Favreau just had a little bit of fun on his Instagram account detailing some new information about his upcoming TV show THE MADALORIAN followed by our first official look at the titular character (above).
That Instagram pic pretty much says it all folks. Looks like this ain’t Boba or Jango after all, but instead a new gunman for fans to froth over. I can see the new toys already…SOLD!
It’s also worth noting a TON of amazing talent will be sitting in the director’s chair for this new series including: Dave Filoni (STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS), Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK), Deborah Chow (JESSICA JONES), Rick Famuyiwa (DOPE), and Bryce Dallas Howard (JURASSIC WORLD).
STAR WARS: THE MANDALORIAN will be streaming on Disney+ (Disney’s new streaming service to compete with Netflix) sometime in 2019.
