Fans of Star Wars are counting down the days until Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian becomes available to the public. And even though there’s no official release date yet, that wait just got a little bit shorter. Wednesday Disney announced that filming had officially wrapped on the Disney+ series.

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal in the titular role, with Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog,
and Gina Carano also starring. Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, and Omid Abtahi are set to appear as well. The series will follow Pascal’s lone Mandalorian as he travels the outskirts of the galaxy, in a western twist on the classic space opera.
Behind the scenes, the series is as stacked as it is in front of the camera. Bryce Dallas Howard, Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow all directed episodes of the series. And Dave Filoni of Star Wars: Rebels and Clone Wars fame helmed the premiere. Recent Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson is attached to score the series. The series will be available exclusively on Disney+ after it’s expected launch later this year.
Disney’s plans for the streaming service don’t stop there though as at least 4 other series are known to be in development. One other from the Star Wars universe, set to follow Diego Luna’s character from Rogue One. Then there’s the new Marvel series, the biggest definitely being Loki, with Tom Hiddleston set to reprise his role, in one way or another. Then, there’s also Vision and Scarlett Witch with Captain Marvel writer, Jac Schaeffer attached as showrunner. Finally, a series starring Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes is in development, but not much is known about that series yet.
