Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was on hand to unveil the first trailer for the first live-action “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” which has now gone online.
The series is set five years after the events of “Return of the Jedi”, the three decade stretch of storyline “that hasn’t been explored at all, except in the Extended Universe says showrunner Jon Favreau.
It’s a galaxy still adapting to the sudden fall of the tyrannical Empire with no central government and gunfighters roaming the galaxy. The series is said to be inspired by the old samurai and western movies and aims for a production quality that will match that of the movies.
Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte co-star in the series along with the voice of Taika Waititi.
Earlier in the day, Favreau told media don’t expect to see Boba Fett in it: “Boba Fett is not [in this]. They’re all-new, original characters.” That’s not to say there aren’t easter eggs for fans including a rifle from the holiday special which was Boba Fett’s first appearance: “we have lots of deep cuts in the show and I can’t wait for people who love Star Wars to see it,”
“The Mandalorian” debuts November 12th on Disney+.
Best Selling comic book series Farmhand, created and illustrated by Rob Guillory, has been optioned for television development by AMC/AMC Studios. Guillory is set to write the pilot for the series and will executive produce alongside LaToya Morgan (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands).
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC,” said Guillory. “I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC. Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special.”
Farmhand follows Jedidiah Jenkins, a simple farmer, but one whose cash crop isn’t corn or soy. He grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. For years, Jed’s organic transplants have brought healing to many, but deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm something sinister has taken root.
Guillory previously co-created and was the Eisner-award winning artist on the New York Times bestselling series Chew. He is represented by Anonymous Content & Myman Greenspan LLP.
The trade paperback of Farmhand, Vol. 1 (ISBN: 9781534309852) is available now and Farmhand, Vol. 2 (ISBN: 978-1534313323) will be available in September. It can be pre-ordered at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.
“Man of Steel” actor Henry Cavill takes on the lead role of Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter struggling to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. When destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
“The idea is you watch the show and you forget you’re watching puppets.” Fans at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 were given a glimpse of the artistry behind the scenes of the resistance by director Louis Leterrier and executive producer Lisa Henson. Darkness rises on August 30.
As usual, San Diego Comic Con has unleashed a plethora of movie and tv series trailers and previews. Among them comes the new series from Amazon, a period fantasy drama called “Carnival Row” starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevigne.
