    I wonder during what time period(s) this SW series will take place? Or will it be an anthology?

    I just don't care anymore, Star Wars ended with ROTJ as far as I'm concerned and Rebels was the last show to air and it's over now. Star Wars is over, Luke and the rebel alliance won and peace was restored to the galaxy.:bailey:

    The title is...

    The Mandalorian.

    Jon Favreau tweeted the title and plot description as a Star Wars crawl.

    Character referred to as "The Mandalorian with No Name", episodes to include "A Fistful of Credits", "For a Few Credits More", "The Good, The Bad and The Wookie"* and "Two Tauntauns for Sith Sarah."

    Finishes on a very odd episode where he meets the Mandalorax.

    *I actually have this as t-shirt.

    "We need to make a Boba Fett series set after RotJ."

    "Well, Boba Fett's dead, right?"

    "Yeah, so we need to do Boba Fett without Boba Fett."

    "How about some other guy who looks and sounds like him? Even wears the same kind of armor?"

    "BRILLIANT!"

    I keep reading the title as Midichlorians and it doesn't inspire confidence.

    It should be Sabine.

    Picking up from the epilogue shot of her meeting up with Ashoka at the end of Rebels and going off to find Ezra.

    George Lucas's idea for Episodes 7-9 was going to be in a micro-cellular word with Midi-Chlorians and Whills.
    That's right, Osmosis Jones in Star Wars.
    Kiss JJ on the mouth for saving you from that.
    Do it.

    And you believe George? Given how much bullshit he's said about the movies (Greedo always shot first, but the effects were so poor you couldn't tell.) I don't think so.

    Besides, they already have a built in fan base for her and backstory to go on. It make the most sense, but we know Disney is stupid and doesn’t care about the fans.

    How do folks think "THE MANDALORIAN" will be received given how "SOLO A STAR WARS STORY" did?

    The prequels were/are Star Wars lowest point, and they didn't hurt Clone Wars and Rebels. :shrug:

    I think it'll do absolutely great.
    Market it as "Stars Wars meets Game Of Thrones", sell people on the long-form character development like you get from Thrones, or Westworld, or Walking Dead, and sell them on Jon Favreau.
    Also, it's not Han/Boba/Yoda/Jabba/Obi or any other old character, so you're getting something new, so they aren't playing it safe, or doing another goddamned prequel.

    Also, the list of directors!
    Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) who will be directing the first episode, and be an executive producer.
    Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).

    Source.
    http://www.superherohype.com/tv/422783-first-photo-from-the-mandalorian-director-list-revealed?

    So, all you fellas that said "Dave Filoni needs to be directing the movies!", we're a step closer, he's cutting his teeth in live-action on this show first.

    Another set pic from Favreau.
    The (as yet unnamed) main character's gun.
    It's totally Boba-Fett's gun from The Holiday Special.
