We Saw 'The Mandalorian' Footage At Star Wars Celebration, Looks Great

LEGO Star Wars returns to A New Hope with 1,700-piece 75244 Tantive IV [News]

Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Dave Giloni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Bryce Dallas Howard (star of Jurassic World) will each direct an episode.

The first official footage of the highly-anticipated Star Wars television spin-off The Mandalorian premiered Sunday at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Throwback methods, like building and using ship models for spaceflight (which they showed a small featurette documenting) will continue tying this Star Wars step forward to its source.

Surprisingly, it isn't branded as being part of the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series unlike last year's Y-Wing Fighter or the epic 7,541-piece Millennium Falcon, both of which we had the pleasure of building.

Pascal will be joined in the cast by Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul; Apollo Creed from the Rocky films, Carl Weathers; Omid Abtahi of American Gods; Emily Swallow of Supernatural; Nick Nolte as the voice of an alien creature; and Deadpool's Gina Carano. "The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the empire and before the emergence of the First Order".

There are still seven months left until Disney launches its new streaming service - but you don't have to wait that long for a taste of its live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.

"The Mandalorian is a mysterious, lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy", said Pascal.

In addition to all of the Star Wars movies, Star Wars Rebels, the series will be added.

The Mandalorian takes place in the time between the end of the original trilogy and The Force Awakens.

But Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy has suggested that future Star Wars films and shows will move past the Skywalker saga and explore other corners of the universe. When the mission is over, this unbelievable kids' buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection.
