How can viewers watch The Mandalorian, the new live-action Star Wars TV show? The Star Wars franchise is evolving, with Disney admitting they pushed it too fast after acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012. The films are going on hiatus after December's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, with Lucasfilm focusing on both live-action and animated TV shows.
The Mandalorian is the first ever live-action Star Wars TV series. It's set between the Original Trilogy and the Sequels, and has been created by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book), boasting an all-star cast. The story stars a mysterious bounty hunter clad in Mandalorian armor, as he attempts to fulfill his contracts - and wrestles with the ethical dilemmas those missions raise. Trailers have stressed that it's essentially a Western, and it feels like a spiritual descendant of the classic Tales of the Bounty Hunters anthology.

The Mandalorian is now available to watch exclusively on the Disney+ streaming service. After years of preparation, Disney is reinventing itself for the streaming age, and their new Disney+ streaming service has now released in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands. There'll be a staggered approach over the next few months, as the House of Mouse recovers content rights for each territory. On November 19, subscribers in New Zealand and Australia will receive Disney+, and it will come to Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy, and France on March 31, 2020. Should you be fortunate enough to live in a territory where Disney+ is available, you can watch The Mandalorian through a variety of devices:
- Desktop web browsers
- Android mobile devices
- Chromebooks, Chromecast and Chromecast-enabled devices
- Fire TV streaming devices, such as the Amazon FireStick
- Android, Apple, Fire, LG, Samsung, and Sony Smart TVs
- iPad and iPhone
- Sony PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
- Roku players and Roku TV
US viewers can subscribe for $6.99 a month, with the option of an annual subscription of $69.99; if bundled with ESPN+ and Hulu, a subscription can be purchased at $12.99 per month.. The first seven days of Disney+ are a free trial period, and there are some high-profile deals out there that are worth looking into. The most exciting of these is available to customers of the telecom giant Verizon's Fios and Wireless services; they're able to get their first year of Disney+ for free.
Of course, there's more to watch on Disney+ than just The Mandalorian. The launch consists of more than 600 titles, and it's estimated it would take somewhere in the region of 3,937 hours to watch all this content. It will only expand over time, too, as rights revert, and more films and TV episodes are released.
