The Mandalorian trailers, cast, release date, and whether Boba Fett will return
What is The Mandalorian? The incoming Star Wars TV show is pegged as one of the most hyped series being developed exclusively for the Disney Plus streaming service, and launch day is looking closer than ever.
The first episode of The Mandalorian hits Disney’s platform on November 12, with staggered weekly releases thereafter – so you can’t binge the whole thing in one day – likely to keep us talking about the show beyond the 24-hour news cycle.

With a star-studded lineup that include’s Narco’s Pablo Pascal in the lead role, and the massive support of Disney and the Star Wars franchise backing the live-action space western, this is set to be a big one.
It’s not the only Star Wars TV show coming our way either. A Rogue One prequel series, following the life of Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna) is set to come to Disney Plus down the line, while we also have word of an Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series with Ewan McGregor reprising his role.
But The Mandalorian will be the first show of its kind for the platform, and all eyes will be on whether Disney manages to keep the magic of Star Wars alive in what looks like a grittier take on the universe (compared to the mainline films).
