First Poster For The Mandalorian Debuts At Star Wars Celebration

Pascal describes the Mandalorian as "a mysterious lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy".

Jon Favreau gave fans their first look at the "The Mandalorian" at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on Sunday, previewing the most anticipated series yet from the galaxy far, far away. And while it wasn't made clear if Dave Filoni ever attempted to secure himself a role in Iron Man 2 or any of the other MCU flicks, Jon Favreau was quick to try and insert himself into Filoni's world.

For those unfamiliar with the Mandalorians, they are a race of warriors who featured in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The series also stars Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito and more. The series is set to take place in between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order. Some of the original Star Wars cast members might make an appearance as well, with Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) at the top of the list.

Here's what Favreau says went down after he got a peek at Clone Wars' first season.

"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. Jon brings the flawless mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe.

When asked if Pogba would be a good fit for the Madrid midfield, Casmiro added: "A world class player at his level can play in any team".

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.

"We have you four to one", a Stormtrooper tells the Mandalorian, according to CNET. Favreau's eight-episode series is to debut on the Disney-Plus streaming service on November 12.

Old-fashioned models similar to those used in the making of the original Star Wars trilogy were used bringing a bit of old-school technology into the mix.

The panel then said goodbye to the streaming audience, and treated the in-person audience to several more minutes of footage from The Mandalorian. The studio recently announced that a subscription for the service will cost $6.99 a month.
