Though The Mandalorian is currently only available to stream in the countries with Disney+ (including the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico), the series has made quite the impact worldwide via great reviews and Baby Yoda memes.
Here’s the synopsis:
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The series depicts a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The series stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) as the titular Mandalorian, with Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods) and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man).
The Mandalorian was penned by Jon Favreau, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels‘ Dave Filoni directs the first episode. Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa and Deborah Chow direct subsequent episodes. Filoni is also serving as an executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Favreau and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist serves as co-executive producer.
The Mandalorian will be available to stream in all other territories in March 2020. Get all the latest sci-fi news with every issue of SciFiNow.
