Early Buzz: This Is the ‘Star Wars’ Series You’ve Been Waiting For
Over in Los Angeles, Lucasfilm held a press junket for the upcoming series premiere of the first live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. The show will debut on the new Disney+ streaming service when it launches on November 12, but some lucky members of the press at the junket were treated to 27-minutes of footage from the series. Thankfully, any surprises have been held back, but the first reactions to the footage are all over the moon, claiming this is an exciting return to the style of the original Star Wars trilogy. Read some of The Mandalorian early reactions below.

Reliving my childhood Saturday mornings watching Star Wars. The 30 so minutes of #TheMandalorian footage we saw was incredibly cool. The samurai-infused space western you've always wanted with an ice cold lead, a bunch of rad creatures, and a killer score @ludwiggoransson ? pic.twitter.com/FBcJf9II6P
