Will April deliver our first look at the new Disney+ streaming service and Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian?
We have exciting news.
Jon Favreau’s highly anticipated Star Wars series, The Mandalorian which has been designed exclusively for the new Disney+ streaming service, could see its first reveal at a Disney investor meeting on the 11th of April.
According to Variety’s New York Digital Editor Todd Spangler, the first look at Disney+ will come at an investors day on April 11.
That date coincides with the start of Lucasfilm’s annual Star Wars Celebration event, where fans had already hoped they might get a first look at new content. The fact that the two events overlap makes it seem like a done deal that some of the content that will be shown off at the Disney event will be Mandalorian footage that they can also provide to Star Wars fans.
In addition to The Mandalorian, Disney+ will feature original content including a live-action Lady and the Tramp film and several TV series set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and featuring actors from the popular movies. It is unlikely that any of the Marvel content will be previewed, since it is not yet in production.
CEO Bob Iger called the launch of the streaming service “the biggest priority of the company during 2019.”
This is exciting news. Fans around the world have been desperate for our first look at Favreau’s highly anticipated new series and with Star Wars Celebration looming on the horizon and Episode IX due to complete the saga in December 2019 appears to be a stellar year for the galaxy far, far away…
