Live-action Star Wars is returning to TV with The Mandalorian, the first non-animated Star Wars TV project since the infamous Caravan of Courage. Now, we finally have a look of what to expect from Disney+ and Jon Favreau’s mysterious tale of a wanderer on the outer rim of the galaxy far, far away.


After fans got a brief taste at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, Lucasfilm has finally lifted a slightly larger lid off of The Mandalorian at D23.

Set after the events of Return of the Jedi—and the downfall of the Empire—The Mandalorian follows the journey of a mysterious, a gun-slinging bounty hunter known only as the Mandalorian, as he navigates the lawless post-Imperial world of scum and villainy, performing a dangerous mission for a guild of Bounty Hunters.

You can also check out a new poster for the series below, released ahead of the panel today.
