We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. reported today that production has begun on the series, and among those listed as directors is Kiwi filmmaker Taika Waititi, who recently helmed the hilarious Thor: Ragnarok, not to mention cult hits like What We Do In the Shadows and Hunt For The Wilderpeople.

Now, the momentum continues with our very first look at the show. That level of talent aligns with what we'd heard about the show's $100 million+ budget, but until the service launches next year we're probably looking at a continual slow-drip of information.

Just yesterday we learned that Jon Favreau's hotly anticipated live-action Star Wars series was going to be a western flavoured adventure titled The Mandalorian.

About her Lake Tahoe rendezvous with Trump, Daniels said that "he was channeling Hugh Hefner , but significantly less sexy". Stormy exclaimed. "I laid there and prayed for death". "Another guy actually sent me a picture of a Yeti cooler on fire".

The first official picture from new Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian. While The Mandalorian is the hero of the show, it's clear that he's not necessarily one of the good guys. It had previously been rumoured that Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni would be making the jump from animated to live-action and directing a pair of episodes. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).

"I couldn't be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform", Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy shared in a statement announcing the series. Karen Gilchrist will co-executive produce.

In December, speculation was rife that Waititi would have a part in future Star Wars projects.
