Star Wars Series 'The Mandalorian' Debuts First Official Poster

Star Wars Series 'The Mandalorian' Debuts First Official Poster

The Mandalorian panel is being streaming live direct from Star Wars Celebration this morning, as those in Chicago get a last chance at seeing something fun from the main stage.

Jon Favreau penned the series, and the directors for the show that have been officially announced include Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) who will be directing the first episode.

Though some wondered if soft drinks from this universe would be sold inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disney confirmed this week that they would be selling Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Sprite and Dasani bottled water in specially-designed bottles that will fit in with the Star Wars theme.

"The Mandalorian" is set five years after the Rebellion took down the Empire in "Return of the Jedi", at a time where only vestiges of the Empire remain, only the strong are surviving and chaos is taking over. At the panel, Pascal revealed that "The Mandalorian is a mysterious, lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy".

Pascal will be joined by Nick Nolte (48 Hrs.), Carl Weathers (Rocky), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (The Mentalist) and Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6). She'll likely find renewed goal in The Mandalorian, as Jon Favreau has teased there's some chaos amongst the galaxy even five years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

During Star Wars Celebration this weekend in Chicago, Disney's Imagineering team dished on "Galaxy's Edge" attractions and the creation of the land.

Weathers plays Grief, "a guy who is running this group of bounty hunters". It's confirmed that classic bounty hunter IG-88 will be on hand, as will the original Stormtroopers. "You'll notice there's no Hasbro or Disney logo in the front of the pack", said Patrick Schneider, Hasbro's Senior Manager for Global Brand Development & Marketing for Star Wars, "This is supposed to be a product you can buy in that world, so there's nothing to break that fantasy on the front of the pack".

Carano plays a former Rebel Shock trooper. It's 20 years since Lego launched the initial Star Wars sets alongside Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

Every single Star Wars movie is coming to Disney Plus and when the streaming platform premieres on November 12, 2019, fans are going to find the force is strong.

Well be showing never seen before cuts from The Freemaker Adventures, behind the scenes photos of the cast and crew, concept art from All-Stars, and a very special guest is dropping by to say hi!
