There are some things I just have to drop everything I'm doing for, this is definitely one. "After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. 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." This was the name drop & accompanied synopsis writer & series producer Favreau shared in a post on his Instagram account. If you don't know, this will be the Star Wars series coming to Disney's upcoming streaming service in 2019. One of my most anticipated parts of said streaming service, hearing this synopsis has me absolutely giddy. This sounds like it could be an amazing Western in the Star Wars Galaxy. Something I didn't get enough of with Solo . I really enjoyed the feel that movie had, & I would love to see more if that Western style. Strange timing, being post Jango & Boba Fett. That's gonna be an interesting time frame to tackle. Personally, I'd have picked a time when Mandalore was thriving, but Favreau hasn't done me wrong yet. Anyway, thoughts on some really big Star Wars news? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Jon Favreau's upcoming, live-action Star Wars series is my main reason for caring about Disney's plans for a streaming service, & now we know exactly when it will take place. Favreau told Nerdist at the Solo premiere that the unnamed series takes place 7 years after Return of the Jedi's Battle of Endor. The series will introduce brand new characters to the Star Wars universe, and will be a Segway between Jedi and The Force Awakens. Probably like Rebels in between 3 & 4, except falling in between 6 & 7 in the same ballpark worth of time if I had to guess. I'm sure we'll see some familiar faces along the way as well. This is exciting. I'm hoping we really get a feel of the hows & whys to the Resistance & the First Order in this. What do y'all think? Are you ready for this series?

This is awesome! Jon Favreau, the man who brought us Iron-Man, The Jungle Book, & soon to come Lion King has just been attached to write/produce a Star Wars TV series for Disney's upcoming streaming service. I love this guy! As an actor & a director he's amazing. He'll be working with a bunch of directors & writers throughout the series. As usual as of late, this is all we get. He'll be overseeing the series as a whole, we just don't know when, where, or what in the galaxy far, far away we're dealing with yet. I'll definitely be watching this one, & that means yes, Disney you have my money for your streaming service. What do y'all think of Favreau heading up a whole Star Wars series?
