It's forging ahead, however, with plans for a deluge of Star Wars TV series. Read on for details.

"After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic," Favreau shared in a post on his Instagram account.

Disney is developing multiple live-action Star Wars TV series for its upcoming streaming service, which is designed to rival Netflix.

So far, only Favreau's involvement in one of the Star Wars TV series has been revealed. Wednesday's announcement offers a closer look at just where the new Star Wars TV series fits in with the franchise.
