  • Taika Waititi

The press release from StarWars.com reads:

Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. 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. The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for updates.

When I first heard this announcement, I was blown away by the amount of talented people working on the show. With names like Filoni, Howard, and Waititi my expectations skyrocketed. I was also extremely happy to hear Dave Filoni has a major role in the series, serving as executive producer. I had a hunch he would be heavily involved.

Overall my excitement for this show is through the roof. I’ve always been intrigued by Mandalorians but wanted to explore characters from that world more. We’ve gotten great Mandalorian stories throughout Clone Wars and Rebels but they were never the central focus. I’m completely sold with the Mandalorian focus and the talent behind the camera. Especially with Dave Filoni, I love that guy.
