This sort of snuck up on me. There have been rumors of a Star Wars TV show being in the works since before Lucas sold the franchise to Disney, but the project always seemed to fall through.
However, this time it appears as though a Star Wars TV show is actually going to happen. The show is named The Mandalorian, and it sounds like it’s going to be sort of a space-Western show:
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.
Here’s the first official photo:
I must say that costume is looking pretty sweet.
