STAR WARS fans that have been waiting for their first look at The Mandalorian, you don’t have much longer to wait. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed after an interview with Jon Favreau that the trailer will release at D23 on Friday August 23rd.
Favreau talks about The Mandalorian
The Hollywood Reporter also talked with Favreau about the making of The Mandalorian. He first talked about how the show will be a digital production and how the quality would differ from the STAR WARS prequels.
This is 20 years later, and also there’s been a democratization of the skill set too. It’s no longer a few vendors innovating in ivory towers, that information has been expanded and disseminated and democratized so that effects that would cost you millions of dollars, you can do it on a PC now, with consumer-facing filmmaking tools. When George came to our set and visited The Mandalorian, he said, “Oh, we did this,” and what he meant was, “We had green screen and we were building small sets and expanding upon it.” Now, we have video walls, NVIDIA video cards that allow a refresh rate that allows you to do in-camera effects, we’re in there taking advantage of the cutting-edge stuff.
Favreau goes on to talk about why the Disney+ platform for The Mandalorian. He mentions again as he did at STAR WARS celebration that he already had some episodes already written because he really wanted to do this project if Disney liked it.
I wrote four of the episodes before I even had a deal, because I wanted to do this but only if they wanted to do the version that I wanted to do. That’s why it worked well for Disney. Plus, Disney+ is emerging and there’s an opportunity to tell a story that’s bigger than television, but you don’t have the same expectations that a big holiday release has, which to me isn’t that type of Star Wars that comes out of me. The type of Star Wars that I’m inspired to tell is a smaller thing with new characters.

So, for the fans that were not able to attend STAR WARS Celebration this will be their first official look at The Mandalorian. And for the fans that did it will be exciting to see what other new things that may be added to the trailer. The Mandalorian will debut on November 12 on Disney+.
