The Mandalorian will be available exclusively on Disney+ beginning on November 12, 2019. It seemed to really bring out some enthusiasm at ILM, with Favreau joking that "a lot of people came out of the woodwork" to be a part of it. There will still be plenty of Star Wars around for junkies like myself, just not on the big screen. 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.

Star Wars fans are getting ready for The Mandalorian, which premieres later this year on Disney+. The Mandalorian was in some kind of cantina-like space, sitting across from Greef. Initially, I thought she slipped up and meant ex-Imperial, but she's definitely an ex-Rebel.

"Fantasy fulfillment, that's what it's like", reportedly said Pedro Pascal, who will play the titular native of Mandalore, home to infamous father-son bounty hunters Boba and Jango Fett.

One cool detail mentioned on the panel, is that when the production needed more Stormtroopers for scenes, they called up the 501st Legion, the long-running Stormtrooper cosplay group.

So what's it like to play the lead character of a Star Wars series?

Cara Dune is a grizzled Rebel shock trooper acclimatising to life after the events of Return Of The Jedi, while Greef Carga is the don of a bounty hunting group. Pedro Pascal will, of course, be The Mandalorian, but we did find out who his castmates will be. He asks for a bigger job but Greef says that this one is more unsafe. The final season will debut on the upcoming streaming service, Disney+.

What do you make of Carano and Weathers' characters?

No footage shown was released to the public, but you can watch the entire panel that has some fun moments. We also saw footage of Carano pulling off some great stunts, and a line from Breaking Bad alum Giancarlo Esposito.
