Jon Favreau's Live Action TV Series

Post by SW_Heroine_Journey on Mon 06 Aug 2018, 2:19 pm

It appears it will cost $100 million for 10 episodes for the premiere season. Which tells me that it will have motion picture/movie quality. I am now more intrigued!

"A live-action “Star Wars” series coming to the platform from Jon Favreau, the director of films like “Iron Man” and “The Jungle Book,” is expected to cost roughly $100 million for 10 episodes. “‘Star Wars’ is a big world, and Disney’s new streaming service affords a wonderful opportunity to tell stories that stretch out over multiple chapters,” Mr. Favreau said in an email. He added of Mr. Strauss: “Marketing is about telling a story, and his background in that area allows us to collaborate and create new content.”

This was posted on StarWarsLeaks on reddit 4 days ago. I'd normally consider this post as "crack", but it checks out with what MSW has reported:

https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsLeaks/comments/93yovq/the_jon_favreau_series_will_be_about_mandalorians/

This is a leak that was given to me about two weeks ago, and I'm told that Making Star Wars should report on it very soon. Essentially, Jon Favreau's show will be centered around Mandalore, two years after the Battle of Endor. I don't have any other information on it, however. I understand if this post is removed or if it's labeled fake, but I absolutely guarantee that this news will drop very soon.

From what I can ascertain, the show being about Mandalore makes sense, as 2019 will be exploring Mandalore in other areas: The Clone Wars is coming back, which may feature the Siege of Mandalore arc, and the newly announced Master and Apprentice book may touch on Obi-Wan's past with Satine. Just my own speculation, not related to leaks at all.

Again, I totally understand if you don't believe me, but I am being entirety truthful! I can provide a decent amount of proof to the mods.

I think it may be true. It's the budget compared to Game of Trones which reminded me of something.

Mandalore's storyline was several times likened to GoT:
- By voice actor Vanessa Marshall (Hera in Rebels), "Star Wars Rebels Season 4 is Like 'Mandalorian Game of Thrones'"
https://screenrant.com/star-wars-rebels-season-4-game-thrones/

- By Dave Filoni who said that the Kyrze secret family tree that he has created is very much like Game of Thrones.
Here is the fun, the video is no more available, but this is the link if one of you know how to recover deleted youtube video.

(Or else, @spacebaby45678 and @TheBastardofMandalore , I found this video in your discussion in the Rey Kenobi thread, by any chance do you have saved it?)

I feel that Disney would want to use GoT popularity and sucess (like Amazon with Lord of the Rings or Netflix with the Witcher) to create their own GoT in Star Wars with Mandalore's culture.

I will see if I can find the video. But if it has been deleted or removed from YouTube, by Disney or the original poster,  then most likely it’s gone for good. I’ll say this though, from my 2 years of experience posting in the Rey Kenobi thread, it’s  not the first time juicy/telling info has disappeared from the internet. Especially when it comes to the Mandalore/Kryze/Kenobi connection.
