Fans were given their first real look at The Mandalorian today as Disney unveiled the first Star Wars live action series, scheduled to roll out on the new streaming service, Disney +, in November.

Here are new stills of Pedro Pascal ("The Mandalorian"), Gina Carano ("Cara Dune") and Carl Weathers ("Greef"). Kicking off at 12 PM ET, the panel will include executive producer and writer Jon Favreau and executive producer and director Dave Filoni. "Some might say he has questionable moral character, in line with some of our best Westerns, and some good samurai [films.] And he's a badass". Boba Fett, a bounty hunter who first appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy, was not himself a Mandalore, but he wore their armor for intimidation purposes, as did his father, Jango Fett.

Former mixed martial artist Gina Carano co-stars as Cara Dune, an ex-Rebel shock trooper.

Anakin Skywalker actors Hayden Christensen and Matt Lanter recently snapped a photo together at this year's Star Wars Celebration.

If Star Wars fans were looking for a reason to sign up to Disney +, The Mandalorian - along with the upcoming Cassian Andor series - seems the most compelling case so far.

Carl Weathers plays Greef, who runs a guild of bounty hunters and is the man who sets the Mandalorian up with his latest important assignment. "The Mandalorian is a mysterious, lone gun-fighter from the outer reaches of the galaxy", said Pascal.

The show is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, per Favreau's description.

Favreau has said in interviews that he plans to use the same motion-capture technology that he employed while filming The Jungle Book and The Lion King to create the aliens in The Mandalorian. It is believed that the new game is based on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and its prequels.

"We have you four to one", a Stormtrooper tells the Mandalorian, according to CNET. Favreau also says the show will not only satisfy longtime fans but introduce a new generation to the galaxy far, far away.

What other Star Wars TV shows are in the works?

The panel exclusively showed attendees a sizzle reel that opened with the Mandalorian walking on a bridge on an icy world, following a transponder to a shelter.
