    The Mandalorian (Disney+)

    From CBR:

    Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series is coming exclusively to Disney’s upcoming premium streaming service and it looks like every episode comes with a hefty price tag.


    The ten-episode first season of the still-untitled series will have a production budget of approximately $100 million. Comparatively, the sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, the final season to feature ten episodes, had a reported production budget of more than $100 million. This makes the eagerly anticipated series one of the most expensive TV shows of all time.


    First announced in November, Favreau became attached to the LucasFilm production this past March as producer and writer. While specifics about the upcoming series are still currently under wraps, filming is expected to begin at the end of the year for a 2019 premiere on the streaming service.


    With most of Disney’s original content for their new platform budgeted at $20-60 million, this also makes the series the most expensive production announced for the platform. It will join the Star Wars: The Clone Wars revival as exclusive Star Wars content for the currently untitled streaming service.

    Star Wars is a big world and Disney’s new streaming service affords a wonderful opportunity to tell stories that stretch out over multiple chapters,” explained Favreau in an interview with The New York Times.

    This better be Tatooine and not Jakku.

    From CBR:

    According to MakingStarWars, Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal is being eyed for the central lead in the upcoming sci-fi series, which is expected to take place between the events of The Force Awakens and 1983’s Return of the Jedi. The series, currently untitled and believed to currently be shooting, is supposedly about the restoration of Mandalore, which fell to pieces during the Clone Wars. Mandalore has been featured prominently in both animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.

    At this time, it’s currently a rumor that Pascal has joined the series. Thus far, he’s the only piece of casting news surrounding the show.

    Despite my belief that even I have to begrudgingly admit that this is a lot of new stuff for Disney to be doing, I have always been a fan of the Mandalorians and wanted some kind of story or series that is almost exclusively about them and their way of life, aside from what we saw in just The Clone Wars and Rebels.

    Jon Favreau revealed the title and plot details of the series via Instagram:

    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 saw all 8 episodes of the Mandalorian. It's Star Wars done right. 'Baby Yoda' is the cutest thing on television. I hope that season 2 is as good as season 1.
