And while Favreau and his creative team are still playing their Sabacc cards close to the vest, the ongoing Star Wars Celebration event in McCormick Place, Chicago brings us the very first teaser trailer for The Mandalorian.

This week at Walt Disney World, Disney announced an end date for IllumiNations, the first details about the Beauty and the Beast lounge are revealed, plus a fun new detail is revealed about Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. "We are going to take all those stories you tell us about your relationship with Star Wars, about what Star Wars means to you", Trowbridge said, "and we're gonna collect those things - those stories - and we're gonna put them in a holocron..."

The series is set between "A New Hope" and "The Force Awakens", sometime after the fall of the Empire and before the rise of the First Order.

During the panel, executive producer Jon Favreau and director Dave Filoni introduced stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano and Carl Weathers. She'll likely find renewed goal in The Mandalorian, as Jon Favreau has teased there's some chaos amongst the galaxy even five years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

The Mandalorian, whatever his name is, pilots a gunship called the Razorcrest, which looks pretty different from the Slave I, ship that fan favorite character Boba Fett - another Mandalorian - piloted in the original trilogy.

It was not immediately clear what would happen to those asylum-seekers when they come back to the USA for their court dates. Immigration and Customs Enforcement put more emphasis on tracking down illegal immigrants already ordered deported.

Finally, The Mandalorian has a callback to a truly arcane bit of Star Wars ... "He's kind of the head of this guild of bounty hunters", Weathers explained. "Some might say he has questionable moral character". "And he finds a bounty hunter named Mandalorian".

Carano is Kara Dune, "an ex-rebel shock trooper", who fought in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. By pure coincidence that's right before Star Wars day on May the 4th.

During the show's panel on Sunday, Favreau also gave fans a glimpse at new Mandalorian footage, but it has not yet been made available to the public.

The original Tantive IV set as released in 2001, making it one of the earliest big Star Wars sets, and was followed by a more detailed re-release in 2009 to celebrate the theme's 10th anniversary.
