ABC/Randy Holmes(HOLLYWOOD) — Jon Favreau has revealed details for his upcoming live-action Star Wars TV series.
In an Instagram post Wednesday, the director teases the story of The Mandolarian.
“After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe,” the post reads. “The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.”
It continues, “We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
Disney announced back in March that Favreau was on board to write and produce a live-action Star Wars series for the company’s streaming service, which will launch next year. It will be the first live-action TV series set in the Star Wars universe.
Favreau is already part of the Star Wars universe, having voiced a character in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and a character in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Star Wars and Lucasfilm are owned by Disney, parent company of ABC News.
