Jon Favreau, who is set to write and exec produce an original, live-action scripted Star Wars TV series, revealed that his new show will be called The Mandalorian.


"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," Favreau shared in a post on his verified Instagram account.

it would be interesting if this actually WAS boba fett, having escaped from the sarlaac, 7 years after the fact.
maybe wandering the galaxy with no memory like Jason Bourne.
(or even just wandering the galaxy free of his contracts, with no 'boss' anymore, since jabba is dead).

just noticing:this might actually BE a boba fett TV show -- the 'Mandalorian' title doesn't rule this out.
That sounds like an ok idea. But, seeing as Boba Fett is the most famous BH in the galaxy, he wouldn't be long not knowing his history.

From StarWars.com

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.
Some good directors in the mix.

This looks and sounds good, but two things. 1. I think this means a Fett film is officially cancelled cancelled. 2. I'm concerned because Favreau played a Mando in Clone Wars and for my money, as unpopular as it is to say (which still baffled me how that show was popular), this is concerning. Leave that Feloni BS out of this and I'm sold.
There never was a Boba Fett film to begin with.

The pic of the character is pretty cool looking. This should be a fun show.

That weapon stock looks a lot like the taser weapon from the Animated Boba Fett

Feloni is already lined up to direct some of them (I think even the Pilot).

Favreau also played Rio in Solo.

even with no detail knowledge yet, I bet this will be about a nonamed character until season end, only to be revealed as a sarlacc-survived-and-hidden-in-the-dark Boba ;) :)

The player would have taken on the role of an unidentified bounty hunter, later revealed to be Boba Fett, who navigates Coruscant's underworld metropolis of Level 1313.

Could this character be Cobb Vanth?
I was thinking the same thing. That description sounds exactly like him. My guess is this takes place before his appence in the books

Yeah problem is 1313 was a mess. It wasnt supposed to be Boba Fett till after the first demo when Lucas said make him Fett. Then it went through 3 more major rewrites before being canceled l.

It was such a mess that when Disney took over they tried selling it and no studio wanted to finish it. Not even EA wanted to finish the game and release it.

Just to be clear:
I didn't mean to suggest the new series would follow/be the 1313 storyline. (I remember reading that that storyline would have taken place between III and IV, anyway)

I mainly posted the pic, because since the first photo on set was provided, I found the similarity in costume design curious.

Combined with Scooby's comment of a drawn-out reveal to be Fett, and ...
Well, make of it what you will.

One issue I can see being a problem with the show is that the main character will end up just being Boba Fett lite.
Yes.
If you're going to have someone wearing Mandalorian armor, ...
Who's alone, ...
With a gunfighter motif ...

Well, it either is Fett, but they aren't saying that yet because the show is set after ROTJ and they want his survival to be a surprise ...

Or, it kinda comes off like a lazy gimmick to capitalize on Fett ...
"Well, we want to use Fett, but he's dead, so we'll just make another character like Fett."

Well, as I just said elsewhere, we'll all know it's Fett when he starts yapping in his Kiwi accent.

For me, that kind of cheap nonsense just won't work.

There is a work-around.
Vader's helmet altered his voice. Boussh's helmet altered Leia's voice.

I always felt that Lucas, rather than changing Fett's voice in TESB to be Temuera Morrison's, should have instead made Jango's voice, when he wears the helmet, match the sound of Fett's voice in TESB.

So far as I know, LFL has not done this yet with any other Mandalorians in either Clone Wars or Rebels.
But it's never too late. Just say he modded the helmet to help keep his identity hidden.
Of course, that in itself might be a bit of a give-away.

It's always been ridiculous that Lucas changed Boba Fett's voice at all. An accent is an amalgamation of cultural influences, not genetic ones. So, Boba having a Kiwi accent like dear old dad is just dumb. Likewise, it's stupid that every clone in 'The Clone Wars' speaks with that awful attempt at Kiwi too. It's just really poor design thinking.

In any case, they'll probably just make stuff up as they go along, which seems to be par the course these days for Diswars. So, who knows what's going to happen. I really do hope, though, that is isn't Boba Fett under there.

It could all work out fine of course. But, I'll be honest, the background to that picture has me more excited than the guy??? in fancy armour.

man, it just gets more funny with every announcement of new material, some "fans" (ahem) are never gonna be ****en happy
Not sure if this comment was directed at me specifically, when I called creating a "Fett-like" character because they couldn't use Fett in the timeframe was a sign of lazy writing ...

Let me provide another example:
When Shadows of the Empire was released, there was plenty of criticism of Dash Rendar as being nothing but a stand-in for Han.

Han wasn't available because he was currently in carbonite, so they made a new "loner, cynical, smuggler, with a freighter, with a quick wit and attitude" character for the cast to play off of.

It was recognized for what it was: a replacement for Han, because they couldn't use Han.

Just saying, based on the little we know so far about this tv show, that's what this comes off as.

I get what you're saying, but honestly, it's never bothered me.
SW, although taking place in a technologically advanced setting, has always been more fantasy/fairy-tale than science-fiction.

I feel the clones voices, while perhaps not scientifically realistic, work for me within the tenor of the story. SW is not the only property to introduce cloned characters that sound exactly like the original.

It's just a trope of the medium (and also cheaper/easier than dubbing over the "clone" actor's lines)

I really do hope, though, that is isn't Boba Fett under there.
As do I, and I find that unfortunate, as the main reason I don't want it to end up being Fett is because I've liked so little of what Disney SW has done, and I'd rather they just left him alone than make things worse.

Me personally...I cringe during those redubbed Morrison/Boba Fett scenes in ESB SE. I get the continuity, but his line readings are just flat to me, and just not very menacing. When I first heard Jason Wingreen say “he’s no good to me Dead,” it gave me the chills.

Well, it's the only version I watch.

I can't ever imagine going back to the special edition crap now.
