The mystery surrounding Jon Favreau’s new ‘Star Wars’ series coming to the Disney streaming service has finally been revealed as the director released a ton of new details on Wednesday.
According to Favreau’s post on Instagram, his new ‘Star Wars’ series will be called ‘The Mandalorian’ — a title very familiar to ‘Star Wars’ fans as legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett wore Mandalorian armor whenever he was seen in the original trilogy. Boba Fett’s ‘father’ Jango Fett was also a bounty hunter, who claimed to be from one of the Mandalorian worlds — a place legendary for the warriors forged there.
This new series set after the fall of the Galactic Empire but before the rise of the New Order will follow a new character created for this series described as a ‘gunfighter’ on the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the reach of the New Republic.

Favreau’s ‘Star Wars’ project is one of the highly anticipated originals that Disney plans to use to help launch their streaming service, which is expected to debut in 2019.
Disney will look to take on other streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu with a huge slate of programming available from past movies and television series — including a library obtained through the purchase of FOX — as well as original series such as ‘The Mandalorian’ from the ‘Star Wars’ universe.
