While you might only know the Star Wars franchise from the movies that have collectively grossed over $9 billion since 1977, the culture phenomenon possesses an expansive universe that is full of stories and adventures that extend beyond what has appeared on the big screen. Besides the movies, there are TV shows, books, video games and even an entire theme park dedicated to telling the complete tale of a galaxy far, far away.
The latest addition to the Star Wars canon is The Mandalorian on the new streaming platform Disney+. This new show will tell the story of a bounty hunter with no name (as of now).
Starring Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Emily Swallow, Taika Waititi, Giancarlo Esposito and Omid Abtahi and executive produced and written by Iron Man and Lion King director Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian promises a more neo-Western look at the Star Wars universe, one that will have a darker, more violent edge to it.
