A new batch of leaks around The Mandalorian has hit. Here’s what we learned about the upcoming Disney live-action Star Wars series.
Things have been tight-lipped around the Star Wars live-action series The Mandalorian, but a recent leak has given us much more information about the upcoming show.
Plot? Not so much, but at least with this leak, we have more context around the Star Wars series slated for Disney+.

The leak comes via Reddit from user JediPaxis where details on locations, characters, props and more were revealed.
With everything Jon Favreau has teased, we kept seeing images of well known bounty hunters. It included IG-88, Bossk and others and now we have confirmation from the leaks that some of them are indeed headed back to the screen.
But also, there are characters we won’t see in the first season: Luke, Leia and Han. Those would be tough to pull off anyway since this takes place after Return of the Jedi.
When it comes to location, the leak states that Tatooine will be a hotbed for action. The desert planet is well known in Star Wars lore. But as you can imagine, if Tattoine is in the picture that also means the return of Jawas.
There are other aliens apparently in the show:
"BlurrgMy source has seen concept art of a blurrg transporting our main characters (the Mandalorian and (presumably) IG-88) across the Tatooine desert. The blurrg was said to be hauling stuff behind it with the Mandalorian perched atop.Nikto and KlatooiniansWhile on Tatooine, several familiar species seen in Jabba’s palace appear as thugs/gangsters in the show.My source describes the Klatooinian outfits as looking similar to that of the Uruk-hai from the Lord of the Rings trilogy (think Lurtz, with guns and the getup being more suited to a sandy environment and that’ll get you pretty close)."
What is really interesting is the inclusion of a Mandalorian blacksmith. Since Mandalorian armor is so unique and revered, seeing where it comes from could be quite fascinating and a nice bit of addition to the Star Wars canon.
While a lot of the leaks are peripheral, at least we can start getting a picture of what to expect from The Mandalorian.
The Mandalorian is expected to release on Disney+ later this year.
