While ‘Star Wars: The Mandalorian‘ will be launching with Disney+ we haven’t known how it will be released. Now, showrunner Jon Favreau is sharing some news which might not be thrilling for binge-watchers as well as a few other ideas as to what we can expect for the tone of the show. While not fully explained, it sounds like the episodes will be released in some form of an interval format. My guess is that we’ll see them come out weekly and, if we’re lucky, the first couple of episodes will be out on release day.
While talking about the feel and tone of the new “Star Wars” series, Favreau shared that:
“Well, first of all, you have to treat it like you’re making a movie for the big screen. The fact of the matter is that, if you look at Lion King, for example, we were very cognizant that, as many people are seeing it in the theaters, there are gonna be more people seeing it at home. And everybody has these beautiful 16 by 9 flatscreen TVs, and you wanna create beautiful imagery that takes advantage of what people have. The Mandalorian, whether you watch it on your TV or if you saw it projected, it should feel just as much like Star Wars as any of the features.”
Favreau went on to add in a few more details where he seems to confirm that this will be released over a period of time:
“Dave Filoni and I, who are partnering on this, we’ve been working so hard to try to honor the traditions of Star Wars and try to present something we would be delighted to see, as fans. Because we started a while ago, it’s gonna be available, day one, on Disney+, on November [12th]. I think they’re going one episode at a time, but it will be there, premiering on the platform, so if you have it, you’ll get to see it.”
I’m not going to lie, I was kind of hoping that I would be able to binge-watch this right out of the gate. Netflix and Amazon have spoiled audiences with the binging format.

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.
