The live-action Star Wars show that will play on Disney’s still-nameless subscription streaming service will be called The Mandalorian, Jon Favreau announced on Instagram. Favreau is set to write and executive produce an original scripted TV series based around the Star Wars universe, which will take place “after the fall of the Empire and before the emergency of the First Order.”

The show is one of multiple live-action Star Wars series that Disney is developing for its streaming service. There will also be new episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, an animated series that’s been around since 2008.
