It's expected to premiere on Disney's upcoming streaming service, which will launch in 2019, though no premiere date has been announced yet. Favreau's new Instagram post contains even more new details, specifically that the show will follow a "lone gunfighter".

A potential live action Star Wars TV series has been in the works for a long, long time.

As we learned back in March of this year, the live action Lion King helmer will serve as writer and executive producer on The Mandalorian, which has reportedly already started filming. The TV series could tap into some of the stories from Rebels, which would be cool since Wren helped fans to realize that there were other Mandalorians in the Star Wars universe during the time of the original trilogy.

In that galaxy so far, far away, a Mandalorian refers to someone native to the planet Mandalore, an Outer Rim conclave home to a warrior-focused community opposed to the Jedi.

Iconic bounty hunter Boba Fett and his "father" Jango wore the distinctive armour and helmets with T-shaped visors, but their connection to Mandalore is disputed in current canon.

Jango claimed to have been born on the Mandalorian world Concord Dawn, but was disavowed by the government of Mandalore, who during the Clone Wars had adopted a new pacifist ideology. "'The Mandalorian' is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order". He has played roles in both "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Solo: A Star Wars Story".

Since casting has not been announced for The Mandalorian, it also is not clear who the new warrior will be.
