Lucasfilm has revealed their plans for the upcoming D23 Expo and it’s sure to get Star Wars fans excited. They will be hosting a panel for Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian where they will screen some footage for the the fans! The will also have a pavilion on the show room floor, which will be a first for Lucasfilm at this event.
Here are the details for The Mandalorian panel:
As part of the Disney+ panel on Friday, August 23, at 3:30 p.m. in Hall D23, “fans will get a sneak peek at Jon Favreau’s action-packed bounty hunter series, The Mandalorian. The Mandalorian (played by Pedro Pascal) is a bounty hunter who travels the outer reaches of the lawless galaxy, surviving as a mercenary-for-hire. Dave Filoni (supervising director on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and writer/director on The Mandalorian), along with special guests, will join Favreau for the on-stage presentation. The highly anticipated program for Disney+ represents the first-ever Star Wars live-action series.”
Here are the details for the pavilion:
Lucasfilm will host a pavilion on the show floor from August 23-25 “with an impressive display showcasing the evolution of the Star Wars stormtrooper. The exhibit will include several of the screen-used costumes seen throughout the iconic movie series. From the classic stormtrooper to the new design featured in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, this stunning display is a rare opportunity to examine these production costumes up close and study the many unique styles deployed throughout a galaxy far, far away.”
This sounds like the same set up that fans will get to see at Comic-Con, which is where the Sith Trooper will make his big debut.
There will also be a “special section for young Padawans that will include Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures video shorts along with multiple interactive activities for kids.”
I plan on attending D23 this year and I’m super stoked about seeing footage from The Mandalorian!
