Production On Season One Of 'The Mandalorian' Is Complete

By: Dominic Jones

It's been a milestone week for two Star Wars productions. First, we learned that principle photography on Star Wars Episode IX had been completed.  Shortly thereafter, we also learned that production on The Mandalorian, the first live action Star Wars series coming to Disney+ later this year, had also wrapped.  Unlike Episode IX, there was no big announcement post from executive producer Jon Favreau or any of the official Star Wars social accounts.  Fortunately, several other members of the crew took to social media to share the news.

Production began on The Mandalorian back in October, with shooting taking place in southern California.  The series is set following the events of Return of the Jedi and follows the adventures of a "lone gunfighter", played by Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal, as he navigates the galaxy in the post-Empire/early days of the New Republic.  The series also stars Gina Carano (Deadpool), Nick Nolte (Affliction), Carl Weathers (Predator), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), and Omid Abtahi (American Gods).

The first season, which will be available when Disney+ launches in the Fall, is expected to consist of eight episodes. The episodes are written by executive producer Jon Favreau and directed by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), Bryce Dallas Howard, Deborah Chow (Better Call Saul), and Rick Famuyiwa (Dope).  The series is executive produced by Favreau and Filoni, as well as Colin Wilson and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
