Unlike Netflix, Disney plans to adopt a traditional weekly distribution model for its original programming on the Disney+ streaming service, and now thanks to the official press site, Star Wars fans can mark their calendars for all eight episodes of The Mandalorian.
As previously revealed, the first episode will launch alongside Disney+ on November 12th, with episodes then following every Friday through to December 27th save for December 20th, when we have the small matter of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker arriving in cinemas. Check out the list of episode dates here, by way of Dark Horizons:
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The Mandalorian sees Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) leading a cast that includes Gina Carano (Deadpool), Carl Weathers (Rocky), Nick Nolte (Afflication), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), Ming-Na Wen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Natalie Tena (Game of Thrones), Bill Burr (F Is for Family), Mark Boone Junior (Batman Begins), Julia Jones (Westworld) and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man).
