Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book) is writing and executive producing, and he's recruited a stellar group of directors to tackle the individual episodes: Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).

The Mandalorian is slated to premiere with Disney+ when the service debuts sometime in late 2019.
