Disney has released some new images and details on the upcoming Disney+ Original series, Star Wars: The Mandalorian.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the series will be set between the events of “Return Of The Jedi” and “The Force Awakens”, so will explore some of the early origins of the First Order.

“This doesn’t turn into a good guy universe because you blew up two Death Stars.  You get that the Rebels won and they’re trying to establish a Republic, but there’s no way that could have set in for everybody all at once. You have in a Western where you’re out on the frontier and there might be Washington and they might have some marshals, but sometimes good luck finding one.”

Said Mandalorian director Dave Filoni, followed by Jon Favreau adding:

“Also, what could happen in the 30 years between celebrating the defeat of the Empire and then the First Order?  You come in on Episode VII, [the First Order are] not just starting out. They’re pretty far along. So somehow, things weren’t necessarily managed as well as they could have been if [the galaxy] ended up in hot water again like that,” Favreau said dryly.

Two new images were also released from the new series.
