The first live-action Star Wars show is now underway, and we finally have a title: The Mandalorian.
Created by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), The Mandalorian will be a big-budget operation and is the first of several shows in development at Disney. Favreau revealed the show’s title in an Instagram post on Wednesday, confirming that it stars a “lone gunfighter” character and takes place between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order—in other words, between episodes VI and VII.
Mandalorians are a culture from the planet Mandalore, often portrayed as warriors. They’re known for their distinctive helmets and armor—think Boba Fett—and are a popular choice for Star Wars cosplayers. With this show in pre-production, it may suggest that the Boba Fett movie is officially dead in the water, considering the overlap between the two ideas.
