The two creatives explained that they met when making Iron Man and Clone Wars, both being the first to see the other's creation.

Sci-fi fanatics at the annual "Star Wars" Celebration convention were treated Sunday to an exclusive sneak-peek at "The Mandalorian", the beloved franchise's first live-action TV series, according to reports. What do you think of the Star Wars Universe coming to Disney Plus?

The project won a place in the Guinness World Records for being the largest display of Lego Star Wars minifigures ever. Weathers is Greef, the leader of a group of bounty hunters who hires Pascal's Mandalorian for an assignment.

"If you look throughout history, (the fall of an empire) is fun at first but it gets very complicated quickly", says writer/executive producer Jon Favreau, who developed the series with director/executive producer Dave Filoni.

Wearing similar armor to the iconic Boba Fett, who was also a warrior from the planet Mandalore, Pascal's character is a mysterious, lone gunfighter who flies his gunship Razorcrest across the outer reaches of the galaxy.

Finally, The Mandalorian has a callback to a truly arcane bit of Star Wars ... "It should be epic, because, Star Wars, right?" The series premieres on the Disney+ streaming service when it launches November 12.

The next footage shown - a five minute clip followed by a montage teaser - showed the Mandalorian take a job from his guild leader Carga. Favreau said that he wanted to take the series back to the "scum and villainy" seen in the first film, which is a tone that immediately won him over.

Includes 5 LEGO Star Wars minifigures: Bail Organa, Princess Leia, Captain Antilles, C-3PO and a Rebel Fleet Trooper, plus an R2-D2 droid LEGO figure.

On Friday, Lucasfilm debuted the trailer for next theatrical "Star Wars" film, "The Rise of Skywalker". When the mission is over, this fantastic kids' buildable toy also makes a great centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection.
