The Mandalorian cast spills details on first live-action Star Wars series

The view from the top floor at Mc Cormick Place West during Star Wars Celebration 2019 on Thursday

Dave Filoni will direct the first episode of the series and additional episodes will be helmed by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa, and Jessica Jones episode director Deborah Chow.

Ever wonder what happened to some of your favorite LEGO Star Wars animation characters from the past few years?

Interestingly the set is not labeled as an Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS) set nor as a Master Builder Series (MBS) playset, though the packaging is similar to both. Throwback methods, like building and using ship models for spaceflight (which they showed a small featurette documenting) will continue tying this Star Wars step forward to its source. The Mandalorian will be the first of the live-action series to hit Disney's new streaming service and the second will feature the return of a big screen hero.

Leia's adoptive father Bail Organa is brand new in minifigure form, and Captain Antilles has been updated from his 2009 appearance. You can learn more about the organization here. There are two removable escape pods and the ship's exterior opens for access to playable areas like the cockpit, cargo hold, conference room and control console. The radar dish also doubles as a convenient carry handle, which makes it ideal for flying around the room.

There will be tree sets of exclusive figures: a First Order 4-pack that includes Kylo Ren, Commander Pyre, Mountain Trooper, and an MSE (or mouse) droid...

The final tally of minifigures was 36,440, easily breaking the previous record of 35,210. It is, however, an impressively detailed and very large set.

The show also draws on George Lucas' original Star Wars inspirations, namely John Ford and Sergio Leone Westerns and Kurosawa samurai movies, with The Mandalorian himself (played by Pascal) said to have a great deal of Clint Eastwood in him.

"LEGO Star Wars starship measures over 5" (14cm) high, 24" (62cm) long and 7" (19cm) wide.

LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV will be available exclusively at shop.LEGO.com from May 3.
