The Mandalorian is a new stand-alone web series from the Star Wars franchise.

Jon Favreau gave fans their first look at the "The Mandalorian" at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on Sunday, previewing the most anticipated series yet from the galaxy far, far away.

Kennedy explained that Favreau initially pitched the idea after it became apparent that Disney+ would have room for multiple TV shows.

As well as giving the iconic Star Wars starship a modern upgrade, the box includes Princess Leia with new dress piece, and Bail Organa, marking the first time Leia's adoptive father has been available as a minifigure.

Favreau has said in interviews that he plans to use the same motion-capture technology that he employed while filming The Jungle Book and The Lion King to create the aliens in The Mandalorian. He cited Westerns and samurai films as his influences.

Swift's social media icons were also changed to match the pastel clouds behind her countdown clock. This isn't the first time Swift has sent fans into a frenzy.

And that's all thanks to the characters.

The panel revealed that Carano's character, Cara Dune, is an ex-Rebel Shock Trooper, while Weathers' Greef Carga is the head of a guild of bounty hunters.

A panel at Star Wars Celebration introduced the first footage of the show, which stars Pedro Pascal as a galactic bounty hunter named the Mandalorian who operates in the underworld and takes an important job from an enigmatic new client (Werner Herzog). He's cloaked in shadows like a true gunslinger of the West. She'll likely find renewed goal in The Mandalorian, as Jon Favreau has teased there's some chaos amongst the galaxy even five years after the events of Return of the Jedi. Something off the books.something with Stormtroopers. The montage that followed showed him fight Doon, punch a Stormtrooper so hard his helmet breaks, and avoid the TIE Fighter flown by the villainous Esposito.

"We have you four to one", a Stormtrooper tells the Mandalorian, according to CNET.

So far, Disney's ventures into prequels, sequels and spinoffs of the Star Wars films have all revolved around the original trilogy of films.
