The Mandalorian is coming to D23!
Star Wars may not have its usual presence at Comic-Con International in San Diego this year, but… If you’re able to attend Disney’s D23 Expo in August, you’re going to be in for a treat. Disney just provide the following press release regarding what fans will be able to see in Anaheim.
LUCASFILM TO HOST ITS FIRST PAVILION AND PROVIDE EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK OF THE MANDALORIAN SERIES AT DISNEY’S D23 EXPO 2019
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (July 11, 2019) — For the first time at D23 Expo, Lucasfilm will host a pavilion on the show floor from August 23-25 with an impressive display showcasing the evolution of the Star Wars stormtrooper. The exhibit will include several of the screen-used costumes seen throughout the iconic movie series. From the classic stormtrooper to the new design featured in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, this stunning display is a rare opportunity to examine these production costumes up close and study the many unique styles deployed throughout a galaxy far, far away.
Also featured in the Lucasfilm pavilion will be a special section for young Padawans that will include Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures video shorts along with multiple interactive activities for kids.
Plus, as part of the Disney+ panel on Friday, August 23, at 3:30 p.m. in Hall D23, fans will get a sneak peek at Jon Favreau’s action-packed bounty hunter series, The Mandalorian. The Mandalorian (played by Pedro Pascal) is a bounty hunter who travels the outer reaches of the lawless galaxy, surviving as a mercenary-for-hire. Dave Filoni (supervising director on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and writer/director on The Mandalorian), along with special guests, will join Favreau for the on-stage presentation. The highly anticipated program for Disney+ represents the first-ever Star Wars live-action series.
