After confirmation in March that Star Wars would be made into a TV show, more details, including a synopsis, have now been revealed. Disney will have its own streaming service, and The Mandalorian will be broadcast from this platform. The reasoning behind the name is inspired by the bounty hunter Boba Fett’s race from the planet, Mandalore.
Jon Favreau (known for directing Iron Man), and who is the creator of the new series, won’t focus on Fett, but will tell the story of a gunfighter, with a timeline set three decades between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
It has been suggested that the series could cost as much as $100 million, which would make it one of the priciest TV projects ever.
