Fans were given their first real look at The Mandalorian today as Disney unveiled the first Star Wars live action series, scheduled to roll out on the new streaming service, Disney +, in November.

Kicking off at 12 PM ET, the panel will include executive producer and writer Jon Favreau and executive producer and director Dave Filoni. One of the biggest announcements detail is that Disney and Coca-Cola have come together to create specially designed products for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

"After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe", he stated on Instagram.

Pascal will be joined in the cast by Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul; Apollo Creed from the Rocky films, Carl Weathers; Omid Abtahi of American Gods; Emily Swallow of Supernatural; Nick Nolte as the voice of an alien creature; and Deadpool's Gina Carano. This "nefarious" - his word - individual is the head of a guild of bounty hunters and the man who sends Pedro Pascal's Mandalorian on a mission to retrieve an item of high value.
