The Mandalorian, Disney+’s Star Wars space western, has been nominated for 15 Emmy Awards–including Outstanding Drama Series. According to a release issued by the Television Academy, The Mandalorian has also received nominations for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series, Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes, among others. The full list of all show nominations can be found here.
The Mandalorian was created by Jon Favreau (who has also directed Iron Man, Elf, and the 2019 version of The Lion King), and it premiered with the launch of Disney+ in November 2019. The series has received positive reviews and has been picked up for both a second season (due to release in October) and a third season.
Pedro Pascal stars in the title role, who is a bounty hunter in the mold of Star Wars favorite Boba Fett. In interviews, Favreau himself has summed up The Mandalorian as “set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The series depicts Din Djarin, a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
