He’s been a life-long Star Wars fan and even managed to nab a cameo role in Solo as the fast-talking Rio Durant. But now, writer-director Jon Favreau, fresh off Disney’s The Lion King, is ready to introduce The Mandalorian to the world.

As a live-action Star Wars TV series, it’ll be the first of its kind, whisking viewers off to a time period nestled between the fall of the Empire and the emergence of the First Order – smack bang in the middle of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, then. Story-wise, all we know for sure is that the show itself follows a “lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”

And while Favreau and his creative team are still playing their Sabacc cards close to the vest, the ongoing Star Wars Celebration event in McCormick Place, Chicago brings us the very first teaser trailer for The Mandalorian. And it’s a doozy.

Unfortunately, Lucasfilm has yet to officially release it online, meaning we’ll have to make do with the leaked version you’ll see up above, but it’s clear enough to get a pretty good look at what awaits us. With some exciting footage from the show itself kicking things off, followed by a tantalizing peek behind the scenes, which includes interviews with the cast and crew, it’s a promising glimpse of the franchise’s first live-action TV series.

But just in case it isn’t exciting enough for you, know that The Mandalorian features a who’s who of Hollywood A-listers, including Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Narcos), Gina Carano (Deadpool), Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad fame, Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, and Taika Waititi – director and star of Thor: Ragnarok.

Stay tuned for more intel on The Mandalorian as this year’s Star Wars Celebration continues. As for the show itself, it’s currently looking at a late 2019 premiere on Disney Plus, and even at this early stage, there’s reportedly been chatter of a possible second season renewal. And if that isn’t a sign of confidence, we don’t know what is…
