George Lucas built on the character's lore by expanding on his younger backstory in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, where we meet Fett's father Jango, who was the prototype for a series of clone warriors.

The series was first announced on November 9, 2017, with Favreau confirmed as writer and executive producer on March 8 this year.

While there are still many details being kept under wraps for now, with production finally beginning we have had a few crucial reveals, and there's already plenty to know about the first live-action TV series set in a galaxy far, far away.

The Mandalorian reveal was immediately welcomed by numerous Star Wars fans and organisations.


Favreau previously told NYT that "Star Wars is a big world, and Disney's new streaming service affords a wonderful opportunity to tell stories that stretch out over multiple chapters".

The Mandalorian will arrive on the Disney streaming service in 2019. "We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic", the Iron Man and Jungle Book filmmaker posted. After dishing out five films in as many years, Disney CEO Bob Iger recently acknowledged movie audiences may be suffering from Star Wars fatigue.

In addition to the title, Favreau also offered up a synopsis for the series which clues us into when in the series will take place in relation to the established Star Wars time line, and also gives us a taste of who the show will focus on.

Favreau is intensely familiar with these stories, having voiced Death Watch revolutionary leader Pre Vizsla in The Clone Wars.
