That is true, I didn't think about him at all, it would work too since he's new and we don't know anything about him so he won't be compared to Rebels. And they could throw in some cameos as well. For sure a strong possibility for the new show.

Yes do it! It's actually really good. It took me a while to start watching it too, I really liked the clone wars and was disappointed when they cancelled it abruptly. I was a little worried Disney would make the new one too kiddy but they did a really good job with this one too, definitely worth watching.

What all events are left for 2018? I donít pay attention to these things except E3. I was hoping for a title shortly.

I posted this in the Star Wars Discussion thread because I forgot this one existed.

Live action show to be titled "The Mandalorian" and is based on a Mandalorian gunslinger between episodes 6 and 7.

I find myself happier then Iíve been in almost a yr but still very meh as well. Would be much happier with Filoni doing this then Jon. It will be cool to see not long after ROTJ and way before ANH2(TFA) a baby New Republic in the background.

Still though....move the fuck on/away from these 50-60 yrs same ole time period dammit.

I knew it was a long shot but I really wanted Jon to take us to TOR.

Ha we all did, back to the mandalorian wars and stuff would have been amazing, but maybe that's still too foreign to casual fans. i'm hoping if this series does well and other movies not related to the episodic ones then maybe Disney will be brave enough to do an Old Republic one.
I think this is a good balance between casual and non-casual fan though, as mandalorians are only seen in the tv shows and games (aside from the Fetts). Filoni would have been good but he's busy with The Clone Wars new season and Resistance so I'm happy with Jon Favreau

So it's a crossover with David Eddings or what?

I donít see them not mentioning Clan Ren or Bo Katan. Would be really cool to see that black saber in live action.

Annnd... Dave Filoni is directing the first episode! Plus Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika down the line.

(Pity no Katie Sackoff as live action Bo Katan; the chronology is a bit out but would have loved that)

So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

First look at the mandalorian, he looks pretty cool. I'm starting to get excited for this!

I like Favreau, the man has a good mind for ideas. I would care VERY little about this if it were about a Fett (Jango, or Boba) because...well they aren't really Mandalorians anyways, but moreso because I don't care about them.

That said, the concept, the directors list, and this image give me a bit of hope that this could be solid. And let's be clear Jon Favreau is a MAJOR factor in the reason that the MCU exists today. He gets my vote of confidence based on that alone.

And lastly, due to TLJ (and my hatred of the direction therein) my love/fandom of Star Wars under Disney has dropped considerably (I'm not excited about IX at all, for example and I think the whole franchise has been badly mismanaged so far)...but I can honestlysay that other than the return of a final season of TCW show...THIS Mandalorian show excites me and feels like the best chance that LFL has to get me back on board a little bit. Like I think my SW fandom has been permanently supplanted by the MCU....but this could get me singing some praises again.

Consider me cautiously optimistic.

Wow I didn't see the list of the directors until you fellas pointed it out, this is starting to look very promising. I'm sure they'll have mentions to Clan Ren and what not. Although in the description it talks about a lone gunfighter on the outer reaches so there may not be too much involving Mandalore specifically but we'll have to see when more info is released.

I'm cool if the actual Mandalore (planet, politics) stuff waits a season or so to be woven in. Establish him/her first.

Also, do we know if the lead is a man or a woman? I'd love for it to be a woman to be frank, as both live action dudes in this amor so far have been guys.

I don't think we know yet, and I'd love for it to be a woman too, I think that'd be really cool. I don't know if you've seen it but in one of the trailers for the TOR MMO there was a female mandalorian who looked cool as hell, so if they had someone like that it'd be great.

I agree, it would make sense too if the mandalorian is on the outer reaches and maybe have some flashbacks or something of Mandalore, and having something bring them back eventually.
There's so much potential for this show, which is really fun, they aren't tied down by having to do it in 3 movies or anything, they can just keep going.

Anyone know off the top of their heads when this is supposed to come out?

You absolutely did! Probably just one episode or so, there's a bunch of other good directors lined up to direct too.
