Coming soon to a screen near you is Star Wars: The Mandalorian, the upcoming Disney+ series centered on a lone bounty hunter. Creator Jon Favreau has been vague when it comes to details, constantly teasing fans with a lot of mystery surrounding the titular Mandalorian. Now a new and exciting poster has been released ahead of the confirmed debut of the trailer at the D23 Expo.
The poster, released through social media, features the bounty hunter walking away from his ship, the Razor Crest, as twin suns set behind him and the stars of that galaxy far, far away come into view. It's certainly dramatic, and in keeping with the tone Favreau seemed to describe in the past.
The series takes place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, decades prior the current Star Wars sequel trilogy. Fans can likely expect to see an era of change depicted in The Mandalorian, as the galaxy struggles to shift and adapt to the sudden fall of the tyrannical Empire.
Jon Favreau recently revealed that he wanted to capture some of the heavier elements of the Star Wars universe, explaining that he loved the "idea of the darker, freakier side of Star Wars." It has been reported that Favreau is already developing the second season of the upcoming series.
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. The series debuts Nov. 12 on Disney+, the same date as the streaming service's official launch.
