As the first "Star Wars" live-action series, "The Mandalorian" is leaning into the Western and samurai influences that first inspired George Lucas in creating the galaxy far, far away.

According to Favreau, who pitched the series to Lucasfilm, the series takes place a few years after Return Of The Jedi and and delves into more of the Mos Eisley side of the Star Wars universe, focusing on the underworld and assorted hives of scum and vaillainy.
