'The Mandalorian': Details on the Live-Action 'Star Wars' Series From Jon Favreau
Filmmaker Jon Favreau released on Instagram the first plot details for his upcoming live-action Star Wars television series titled The Mandalorian which will appear on Disney's upcoming streaming service.
Favreau's project will be set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The program's title refers to those from the planet of Mandalore, the home world of bounty hunters Jango Fett and his son Boba Fett.
The actor and filmmaker has directed two 'Iron Man' movies and much more.
"After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe," the synopsis Favreau posted Wednesday said.
"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...," it continued.
