In addition to discussing the series, they also showed a sizzle reel to fans in attendance at the convention, and sure enough, it has leaked online; check it out here along with some official first look images...

In the 20th year of LEGO Star Wars, the team is going back to the beginning of the story and releasing 75244 Tantive IV.

The Mandalorian will be released on Disney's streaming service on November 12, the same day Disney Plus launches. "I'm a bit of a loner, which isn't a far stretch, and I'm having a hard time reintegrating myself into society".

Wearing similar armor to the iconic Boba Fett, who was also a warrior from the planet Mandalore, Pascal's character is a mysterious, lone gunfighter who flies his gunship Razorcrest across the outer reaches of the galaxy.

PSN Name Changes Are Available on PS4 Starting Today

How will Marcus Smart's injury affect the Celtics in playoffs?
Smart suffered the injury midway through the third quarter, and it was initially expected to be a minor knock. Smart was doing what he does best, sacrificing his body for a loose ball, before falling directly on his hip.

Disney's Streaming Service (Finally!) Gets Launch Date, Price Details
The streaming service launches on November 12 in the United States with prices set at $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. Fans can finally prepare for the highly-anticipated Disney Plus streaming service, which debuts later this year.

And some new members of the First Order may be patrolling the grounds of Black Spire Outpost: Commander Pyre (from Star Wars Resistance) and the Mountain Trooper are exclusive to the land. And I said, 'Would you like to be a Mandalorian?'

The cast includes Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Gina Carano, Omid Abtahi, Emily Swallow, and Werner Herzog. "He's looking for someone to go after a product to bring to a client, that's very valuable". It's a nice touch that he mentions hoping for a rematch with Obi-Wan Kenobi, and we know that he gets his wish much later on thanks to Star Wars Rebels. Surprisingly, it isn't branded as being part of the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series unlike last year's Y-Wing Fighter or the epic 7,541-piece Millennium Falcon, both of which we had the pleasure of building.

The show also draws on George Lucas' original Star Wars inspirations, namely John Ford and Sergio Leone Westerns and Kurosawa samurai movies, with The Mandalorian himself (played by Pascal) said to have a great deal of Clint Eastwood in him.

When asked how The Mandalorian would be different from other Star Wars properties, Filoni was hesitant to get into details. Faverau called them back, and we saw a scene in which Weathers' character is bartering with The Mandalorian.
