It looks like Star Wars fans might get to see the first episode of Star Wars: The Mandalorian soon.
The Star Wars Show has the newest update on Jon Favreau's new Star Wars series, and according to the channel, the project has officially wrapped principal photography. Now, with the show ready to enter post-production, it's more or less safe to say that The Mandalorian will soon make its way to Disney's upcoming streaming service, Disney+.
This announcement counters reports made last week saying that The Mandalorian wrapped production the very same day as Episode IX. Word had it that the cast and crew of the series were posting celebratory photos online, sparking speculation that The Mandalorian had already completed principal photography back then.
Right now we don't have that many details regarding the plot of the series though we do know that The Mandalorian is going to put its focus on another warrior like Jango and Boba Fett, only this time the story will be set "after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order."
According to the film's synopsis, The Mandalorian is going to "follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy from the authority of the New Republic."
The Mandalorian's primary cast includes a handful of big names like Game of Thrones Pedro Pascal who is set to play the role of the show's central character, the new warrior. There's also Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor Giancarlo Esposito, Supernatural's Emily Swallow, and Rocky's Carl Weathers.
The Mandalorian is set for release sometime this year on Disney+.
