‘The Mandalorian’ Revealed: Jon Favreau & Pedro Pascal Unveil ‘Star Wars’ TV Series In Chicago
The disturbance in The Force this morning is emanating from Chicago, where Star Wars Celebration turns its attentions to The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars television series and the vanguard Lucasfilm contribution to Disney+, the high-stakes subscription play launching in November.

Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy introduced filmmakers Jon Favreau (Jungle Book) and Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) to the delirious, sold-out crowd gathered at McCormick Place, the largest convention center in North America. The Mandalorian is written and Ep’ed by Favreau. Well-known Jedi universe storyteller Filoni is directing the inaugural episode and serves as executive producer alongside Kennedy and Colin Wilson.

Favreau and Filoni discussed the unique appeal of The Mandalorian setting and time frame — the events depicted in the series are set after the events of Return of the Jedi, which concluded with the fiery funeral of Darth Vader on the forest moon of Endor.
