Disney is starting their own streaming service. They will be pulling all their old titles under the streaming service eventually when broadcast contracts expire.
Disney will also be developing original content for their streaming service. One of those shows will be “The Mandalorian” directed by Jon Favreau. Disney is throwing a lot of money at this project and Favreau is a proven director, so we have high hopes for this series.
For those not steeped in all things Star Wars, Mandalorians are what Jango & Boba Fett are. They are a legendary race of warriors originating from the planet Mandalore and it’s moon, Concordia.
Jon Favreau’s Mandalorian will be Lucasfilm’s first live-action Star Wars television show. It is set during the years between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order. The Mandalorian should be a good gap filler between the major Star Wars movie releases.
The only negative is it will only be available on the Disney Play streaming service. That will require the purchase of another streaming service membership.
Are you looking forward to the Mandalorian? Let us know in the comments.
