The Mandalorian, executive produced by Jon Favreau and Lucasfilm, “chronicles the lone-wolf odyssey of a character who hails from the planet Mandalore,” aka “the home world of the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett and Jango Fett.”

Gina‘s role is not yet known.

Jon has said that the series will take place “after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. It will follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”

The first episode will be directed by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars). Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, and Bryce Dallas Howard will also direct.
