Earlier today at Disney’s D23 event, the media behemoth announced the premiere date for the first-ever live-action Star Wars TV show, The Mandalorian, which will be on November 12.

But a few hours later, they gave fans their first view of the show, which will be executive produced by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. The show, according to the official Star Wars website,  follows the travails of a bounty hunter after the fall of the Empire. Stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, and Taika Waititi joined Favreau and Filoni to share a first look at the series with its first official trailer. Ming-Na Wen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D ) was announced as a cast member during the event. Watch the trailer below.

Additionally, they announced that the much-beloved animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars will return in February of 2020. According to the Star Wars official site, “Fans created a global #SaveTheCloneWars campaign several years ago for creator Dave Filoni to be able to finish the series, and their voices were heard. The series will finally provide the epic conclusion to the critically-acclaimed series that fans have been asking for, bringing the story up to the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Order 66.”

Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk were at the event to discuss reprising their roles as rebel Cassian Andor and fan-favorite security-droid-turned-rebel-hero K-2SO, for a yet another Star Wars series exploring the story of the rebel heroes before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
