A user that goes by the name u/Xyzsvtabc has posted some very interesting information on the Star Wars Leaks Reddit board. They claim to have attended a Star Wars Marketing Presentation by Disney where they discussed many projects for 2019 including Galaxy's Edge, Galaxy of Adventures, Star Wars - Episode IX and Fallen Order. But it's their details on the new Jon Favreau live-action series "The Mandalorian", which has the most revealing bits of information.
In the post, he/she says this was discussed and shown at the meeting...
They showed a sizzle reel of Jon Favreau talking about how he's excited because they have delved into some of the EU for this series. They also talked about the different directors as well. The main thing I remember here is that the central plot revolves around the main character and a baby. I guess the Mandalorian encounters a baby on one of his missions that he is supposed to kill, but instead of that, he ends up saving it and a lot of the rest of the story revolves around their growing relationship and his efforts to keep the child safe and protected. They showed a ton of artwork and stills. They spent a decent amount of time talking about the Mandalorian's armor and how it goes through changes and upgrades. They mentioned the large woman character who is some sort of Chief of theirs? I don't remember her name or whether she was a villain or not. They also talked a lot about different planets and terrains but I don't remember too many specific details.
Jason from MSW stated this user has been correct in the past and there's no reason not to trust this information. Additionally, it reaffirms something Jason reported on back in 2017 where the series was rumored to be about an "heir to Mandalore and the hero was on a quest to restore Mandalore"
As far as the armor changing, this is another fact that has been confirmed by MSW and something that we should see by Episode 3 as far as the reporting goes. The costume we were shown in the press release photo a while back apparently is what our "hero" will be wearing when the series starts.
We know Tatooine is in play thanks to Jawas and a Sandcrawler being spotted on set, but as far as the "large women" they mention, there is no information out yet on who that might be.
We're still a year away from this series debuting with Disney+ so that's plenty of time for more information to come out! Stay tuned!
