'The Mandalorian': Jon Favreau Teases Disney+ Series at Star Wars Celebration

The eight-episode story begins unfolding Nov. 12.
Star Wars fans got a first look at the Disney+ series The Mandalorian Sunday.

Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy and executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, pulled back the curtain to a packed crowd at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.

The eight-episode series will debut on Nov. 12 as one of the launch shows for Disney+, and originated from an idea from Favreau.

"Jon sat down and pitched the idea of The Mandalorian. It was instantaneous. We were so excited to bring this idea to the screen," said Kennedy, introducing Favreau and Filoni.

Filoni and Favreau recalled meeting more than a decade ago at Skywalker Ranch in northern California. Favreau was mixing 2008's Iron Man, and Filoni was working on Clone Wars. The two gave each other feedback, and Filoni allowed Favreau to voice a character.

The Mandalorian takes place after 1983's The Return of the Jedi and before the villainous First Order rose to replace the Empire. Favreau said he wanted to look at the days after the Rebellion's victory.

"If you look throughout history, it's fun at first, but it gets very complicated very quickly. The idea of that world after The Return of the Jedi and what would happen and what sort of characters would survive, and what it was like until the new Republic took over," said Favreau. "You have vestiges of the Empire. You have only the strong surviving. You have chaos taking over the galaxy."

Favreau said he'd always loved the tone of the Catina and found that underworld to be the "rich environment" in which to tell a story.

Favreau and Filoni introduced stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano and Carl Weathers Carl Weathers, the latter of whom channeled his Rocky character Apollo Creed, yelling at the crowd, "I want you! I want you! I want you!"

Pascal plays The Mandalorian, calling the role "fantasy fulfillment."

"The Mandalorian is a mysterious, lone gunf*ghter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. Some might say he has questionable moral character, which is in line with some of our best westerns, some good samurai. All the good stuff," said Pascal. "He's a badass."

Carano revealed her character is called Cara-Dune (the spelling is unclear at this moment), an ex-Rebel Shock Trooper.

"I'm a bit of a loner," Carano said. "Iím having a bit of trouble reintegrating myself into society.

Weathers plays Grief Carga (again, spelling is unclear at the moment).

"He's the head of this guild of bounty hunters," said Weathers. "He's looking for someone to bring a product to a client. It's worth a lot, very valuable. Guess who he finds? He finds a bounty hunter named Mandalorian Ö he hires this guy, sends him out there, and Mando does what needs to be done."

Favreau revealed The Mandalorian gets around on a ship called Razer Crest, and noted this was the first time Star Wars was shot in Los Angeles, saying it was possible due to technological advancements, including those he's learned on his films such as Iron Man, Jungle Book and Lion King.

The Mandalorian has booked a number of high-profile directors, including Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow and Filoni.

"Everyone was from a different perspective, different generation," said Favreau of the directors. "We love pulling all the different stories together. For people who have been fans for 40 years, we have a lot in there for you. But these are new characters and new stories, so it's a great way to invite new people in. Ö Much like we did with Marvel with Iron Man, let's make it something people could jump in on who don't know anything about Star Wars and enjoy, but if you've been a fan, there's been a lot of care that goes into all the details."

Favreau showed off behind-the-scenes footage that confirmed the project is set five years after Return of the Jedi. It showed off interviews from some of the series' directors.

Fukuyama called the series as having "the heart that Star Wars has always been about."

We get to see footage of the Mandalorian walk silently towards a ship and open the door, walk inside. It was silent aside from sound effects, and very moody and dark. There was about 30 seconds of finished footage, as the team is still working on the visual effects.

Filoni revealed he used the 501st Legion ó a fan troupe of Stormtroopers ó for The Mandalorian, with the group not realizing ahead of time that's what it'd be for.

"They didnít' mess around," said Weathers. "I wound up learning stuff from watching these guys and women."

Disney+ is being billed as an important component to the future of Star Wars. Following December's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, there will be a break in theatrical releases for the galaxy far, far away.

In addition to The Mandalorian, Disney+ also has a Diego Luna-led Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel starring his character Cassian Andor. It is also reviving the fan-favorite animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars for a seventh season on Disney+ after last airing in 2008.

Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy told The Hollywood Reporter Friday that while there is a focus on streaming series for Star Wars, she is already plotting the next decade or more of theatrical releases, by working with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who have two trilogies in development between the three of them. Favreau is also considered a key voice of the next theatrical steps."

That's what I'm fearing as well with it being from Disney as since they took over they haven't done anything really spectacular (very cool effects but dumb animal type pets and such blah). Hopefully bringing on the guys from Game of Thrones brings some grown up aspect to the series.

Disney+ is gon be lit, they’re gon have so many shows. I’m hoping for a Moon Knight series with the vibe of Netflix’s Daredevil.

I hope they introduce Inhumans again too and make it better than that bullsh*t that was on cable. Then they’ll probably tie in the shows and movies for sure.
