Official Announcement for The Mandalorian - First Photo, Director List, Etc.

The first official announcement from Lucasfilm about Jon Favreau's live-action streaming show The Mandalorian has arrived. We also got our first photo of our lead character and he definitely looks like a blend of Boba Fett and father Jango mixed with Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name. The directors of the show have been announced as well, and there are some very exciting names on the list.

One big surprise was Bryce Dallas Howard will be helming an episode or two of The Mandalorian. Known mainly as an actor, Bryce is the daughter of Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard. She's no stranger to working behind the camera and has directed four short films that played film festivals.

You can read the official announcement and see the entire photo for The Mandalorian after the jump.

Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.
