"The travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic."

Unfortunately, the teaser trailer for The Mandalorian was only screened for people who attended the panel at Star Wars celebration itself.

Jon Favreau, the writer, creator, and showrunner, and executive producer Dave Filoni along with the actors portraying the main characters of the series took the stage and provided fans with details on their parts without giving too much away. A live-action Star Wars series will be one of the many ways Disney is drawing customers into their streaming app.

The big news was seeing the first footage of The Mandalorian, which starts with the title character being offered a series of jobs by Carl Weathers' character, but the bounties aren't appealing. Pedro Pascal is expected to appear.

The show is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, per Favreau's description.

Disney announced on their official Twitter account that all of the Star Wars films will be added to the service. "You have chaos taking over the galaxy", Favreau said.

According to market sources, the company may provide a price range for its shares later this month and would go public in May. Uber in 2018 had $11.3 billion revenue, up around 42 percent over 2017, but below the 106 percent growth the prior year.

Disneyland's "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" expansion will host the park's most complex attraction ever - and possibly at any theme park.

Speaking of Fett, you've probably noticed that the Mandalorian wears armor that recalls the famed bounty armor.

Other cast members include Gina Carano, who plays a character named Cara Dune, an "ex-Rebel shock troople" who is "having some trouble reintegrating...into society". "It should be epic, because, Star Wars, right?"

The show also draws on George Lucas' original Star Wars inspirations, namely John Ford and Sergio Leone Westerns and Kurosawa samurai movies, with The Mandalorian himself (played by Pascal) said to have a great deal of Clint Eastwood in him.

The Mandalorian will take place in the same universe as the three Star Wars trilogies, but don't expect any cameos from your favorite film characters. The studio recently announced that a subscription for the service will cost $6.99 a month.
