The 'Star Wars' Series 'The Mandalorian' Is Confirmed For Release In 2019
The show will inaugurate the launch of Disney+ in the United States.
Good news for fans bursting with midichlorians. Following a year of slim pickings in the Star Wars universe (with the spin-off Solo as the only stale offering), Disney has just confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the series The Mandalorian will definitely be released at the end of 2019. It will be uploaded on the American company's platform when the latter is launched in the United States. For now, Disney+ has no European launch date, although rumors suggest it should be with us in 2020.
The show, directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Lion King), is still being filmed at the famous Manhattan Beach studios in California. A sacred place ravaged by burglars in October 2018, who stole accessories used in the series. While the police continue to investigate, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weather and the rest of the cast continue to bring to life the story of the Mandalorian, played by Pedro Pascal. As a reminder, the show will be set in the period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
The series will explore the origins of the First Order, following the voyage of a lone gunfighter and hitman. The events of The Mandalorian will be set far from the authority of the New Republic, near the Outer Rim where a civil war has broken out and shaken the planet Mandalore. We should also be seeing other well-known stars from the saga, including the iconic Tatooine. Information is being released little by little, but we now know that the end of 2019 will see a tribute to pop culture with the release of Star Wars IX and the first series to be drawn from the franchise created by George Lucas.
