Starwars.com has just announced the list of directors for Star Wars: The Mandalorian alongside a new image from the production of the show!
“Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for updates.
Our buddy Hawes of “Blue Harvest” podcast pointed out that this Mandalorian looks very similar to Boba Fett’s design for Star Wars 1313:
I am really pumped to see the list of different directors, especially Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika Waititi. I have a feeling we are in for a very awesome Star Wars experience!
