Thanks to an Instagram post, we now know a bit more about Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars TV show, which will be an exclusive to Disney’s upcoming streaming service. The Director shared the show’s title, and a brief synopsis for it on his Instagram feed, so we now know the show is called The Mandalorian, and it will follow a gunfighter on a journey in the outer reaches of the New Republic. As previously reported, the events of the show will take place after Return of the Jedi, but before the rise of the First Order.
The full synopsis can be read below:
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.
I’m sold! I don’t think it’ll go this way, but I’d 100% be down for this show featuring Sabine Wren looking for Ezra, as it would technically check a few boxes from the synopsis above. She is a mandalorian, and an important one at that, and we know that she does go out in search of Ezra after he was hyperspaced to the unknown regions of the galaxy. I think these tales would make for some great live-action Star Wars moments, but I highly doubt the show will feature previously established characters as main characters. I could see Sabine possibly having a cameo, but again, that is probably unlikely.
Oh well, at least we know what Jon is cooking up, so we can start speculating in full on what we may see when the show drops in a year or so. Stay tuned for more details as they become available. You should definitely tune into our Star Wars Time podcast next week, because we will be dissecting this reveal in detail, as well as talking about the show’s production leaks.
