The Mandalorian Star Wars series was confirmed to be featured at D23 next month as a part of the Disney+ panel. Here’s what we can expect to see.
With all the hype surrounding the pending release of Star Wars:The Rise of Skywalker and the Jedi: Fallen Order Video Game, the upcoming Disney+ series titled The Mandalorian has been getting overshadowed, mainly because not much from the series has been officially released to the public.
There was a panel for The Mandalorian back at Star Wars Celebration in April where footage for the series was previewed to the crowd, but it has yet to officially be released online.
This was likely due to the fact that it didn’t want the release of three different productions at the same time to come into conflict with one another, so they are saving the reveal of The Mandalorian for a later date.
The series is set to be released on November 12, 2019 on Disney+ and is expected to be one of its marquee shows to go along with the streaming service’s initial launch, so it would behoove Disney to heavily promote the show prior to release.
Disney posted on the Star Wars website that The Mandalorian will be featured at D23 in Anaheim, California this coming August, stating that at the exhibit, it will showcase “a sneak peek at the new series, a costume exhibit, and more!”

More specifically, the post states that:
"“During the Disney+ panel on Friday, August 23 at 3:30 p.m. in Hall D23, get a sneak preview of the upcoming live-action series The Mandalorian. Executive producer Jon Favreau will be joined by Dave Filoni (supervising director on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and writer/director on The Mandalorian) and other special guests for an on-stage presentation offering a glimpse at the titular bounty hunter and his travels to the outer reaches of the galaxy far, far away.”"

In shorter terms, the series’ head creators will be interviewed on stage prior to the debut of either new footage, similar to what was shown at Star Wars Celebration, or the premiere of the first official trailer for the show.
Seeing as at that point, the show will be set to debut less than three months following D23, I expect whatever is shown to be released online as well in order to begin promoting the show leading up to its release.
Personally, I think I am looking forward to this show more that I am for the release of The Rise of Skywalker in December as it promises to a return to form of the older style of Star Wars media, similar to that of the original trilogy.
In addition, I’m a fan of other work by the shows creators, particularly that of Jon Favreau, and cannot wait to see what they have to offer to the Star Wars Universe.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian is set to be released on Disney+ on November 12, 2019.
