In terms of Star Wars canon, The Mandalorian is set "after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order", which would place it somewhere between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

Written by Iron Man star and The Lion King director Jon Favreau, the promo doesn't show Pascal as such.

Favreau and co-creator Dave Filoni took to the stage to show off the Mandalorian trailer.

The Mandalorian looks like what the Star Wars spinoff movies should have been.

The one speaking line that we did hear was fantastic.

Video showing arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou released
Ms Meng is now living under house arrest in Vancouver, Canada, and is waging a legal battle against extradition to the US. He says the Forces knew about Master Corporal Patrik Mathews back in April before the media got wind of it.

That's the official name of the immersive Star Wars hotel that's now under construction at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, which was announced this week at a press preview for D23 2019.

The Mandalorian will debut exclusively on Disney's upcoming direct to consumer streaming service, which is set to launch November 12.

While the trailer doesn't reveal much else in the way of the show's plot, it certainly promises plenty of action, and this morsel: "Bounting hunting is a complicated profession".

Finally comes Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a new, first-of-its-kind vacation experience where guests will check in for a two-night adventure aboard a glamorous starship. Interestingly, they pitched it as a show that people who never seen Star Wars before could watch, but also one that will reward longtime fans of the franchise. Let us know in the comment section below!

The Mandalorian will focus on a single gunfighter on the outer reaches of the galaxy and will star Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi and Werner Herzog, among others.
