There's a bounty that needs collecting in a galaxy far, far away, as an instance of theft has been reported on the set of Disney and Lucasfilm's upcoming Star Wars television series The Mandalorian.
According to The Blast, the theft doesn't involve any props but rather "expensive equipment" from the camera department at the studio in Manhattan Beach. This has led some to believe that a memory card housing detailed information regarding the series might have been among the items stolen, which naturally has Lucasfilm nervous about any potential leaks.
While little else is known about the theft at this time, we do know that The Mandalorian will “follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic" following Return of the Jedi and prior to The Force Awakens.
Jon Favreau, who will serve as the executive producer on the project, will write the series, while Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) will direct the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
The Mandalorian will arrive on the Disney streaming service sometime in 2019.
