With the launch of Disney+ this week, the galaxy far, far away continues to expand, as the Disney+ original series The Mandalorian will be the first live-action television series set in the Star Wars universe.
The Mandalorian — which will take place after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order — is set in the year 9ABY (after the Battle of Yavin in A New Hope), placing the story approximately 25 years prior to the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The series — which will consist of eight episodes in its first season — stars Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Narcos) in the titular role alongside Giancarlo Esposito, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Carl Weathers, Bill Burr, and Werner Herzog.
Here’s a detailed first look that aired during the Monday Night Football game between the Seahawks and the 49ers just prior to the launch of Disney Plus:
