Now we're about to learn what life is like in a lawless part of the galaxy after the fall of the Empire as the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago reveals the first details of The Mandalorian.

Judging by a slew of new images, jaded fanboys might actually give this one a pass.

Here are new stills of Pedro Pascal ("The Mandalorian"), Gina Carano ("Cara Dune") and Carl Weathers ("Greef").

But so far, the story of this new Disney+ series has stumped Star Wars historians. You may have been able to infer that from the helmet alone. Weathers will be stepping into the role of Greef, who sounds like he'll be a head honcho of sorts for the galaxy's most unsafe bounty hunters.

A trailer for the project was also screened.

From what we did see, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was initially joined on-stage by Favreau and Star Wars: The Clone Wars/Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni who revealed how they first met at Skywalker Ranch while Favreau was making Iron Man and Filoni was making The Clone Wars.

The Mandalorian arrives on November 12. You wouldn't believe what I was seeing. These have yet to make it into the LEGO: Stars Wars series.

"The idea of that world after The Return of the Jedi and what would happen and what sort of characters would survive, and what it was like until the new Republic took over", said Favreau of his initial pitch for the series.

What other Star Wars TV shows are in the works? I was shaped by these movies. Are you excited for The Mandalorian? Pre Vizsla may not have shown up very often, but he was hugely important for building the canon up for Mandalore, the planet full of war-mongering warriors with cool helmets. Below are some screenshots of the footage shown during the panel with the team building the models using 3D printers and LEDs for the engine lights.

Pedro Pascal, who played Oberyn Martell on Game of Thrones, will star. There was a amusing minute where Faverau said goodbye to the streamning audience, the in-person audience started leaving too. We also saw footage of Carano pulling off some great stunts, and a line from Breaking Bad alum Giancarlo Esposito.

"First time seeing that and blown away man", Weathers said.

Disney+ just secured a couple more subscribers.
