First Reactions to The Mandalorian Rave About Disney +’s Star Wars Series

Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorianthe first-ever live-action Star Wars series, doesn’t premiere until November 12th, but we’ve already got some of our first reactions to the series hitting the internet. For Star Wars fans and those simply curious about what a live-action Star Wars series might be like, it’s time to start getting excited about this show.

Roughly 27-minutes of footage were screened for a few lucky journalists during Disney +’s press day. The Mandalorian is one of the new streaming service’s flashiest and most anticipated pieces of original content, boasting an incredible ensemble cast and the massive treasure trove of Star Wars related material to work with. Favreau’s also put together an great list of directors for the series—including Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Dave Filoni—which is centered on Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian bounty hunter. The series is set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and before the rise of The First Order—although we’ll likely see the sinister reboot of the Galactic Empire take shape.

The reactions are really positive. While the footage revealed was edited in a way to keep the big twists and secrets hidden, it seems Favreau, his cast and crew have got something special on their hands here. Let’s take a brief, spoiler-free tour through Twitter for those reactions:
