Jon Favreau has unleashed the epic first trailer for his forthcoming Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Set to premiere alongside Disney+’s November 12th launch, the live action spinoff promises a sprawling adventure in the underbelly of our favorite galaxy.
That’s certainly by design. As Favreau told The Hollywood Reporter ahead of Disney’s D23 conference, “I’m trying to evoke the aesthetics of not just the original trilogy but the first film. Not just the first film but the first act of the first film. What was it like on Tatooine? What was going on in that cantina? That has fascinated me since I was a child, and I love the idea of the darker, freakier side of Star Wars, the Mad Max aspect of Star Wars.”
Seeing how the series has been greenlit for a second season, it appears that story will be even bigger than Favreau anticipated. Nevertheless, Star Wars fans have plenty to look forward to in the coming months, what with this and Rise of the Skywalker hitting theaters December 20th.
May the Force Be With Us.
