While the rumored Boba Fett movie has been put on hold for now, we are getting new Star Wars content in the form of 'The Mandalorian' TV show that will be airing in late 2019 on Disney+.

Lucasfilm has reportedly found the lead actor that will be in the series.

As reported by Variety, Pedro Pascal has been selected to play the lead role in 'The Mandalorian' TV show.

He was offered the role and negotiations are under way. Several other actors were considered for the role, but it sounds like Lucasfilm wanted Pedro Pascal from the very beginning.

Pedro Pascal may not be a household name yet, but people will recognize him as he starred in movies including the likes of Wonder Woman, Kingsman: The Golden Circle and The Equalizer 2 just to name a few.

Most people may know him best as Prince Oberyn in Game of Thrones.

The Mandalorian TV show is not the only Star Wars show being planned for Disney+.

It was also revealed last week that Diego Luna will be reprising his role as Cassian Andor in a Rogue One prequel TV series as well.

This show is yet to start production, so it's more than likely we'll see it in 2020.

You can view the synopsis for The Mandalorian TV show down below.

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Warsuniverse. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Disney is going all-out on Disney+ as the company wants to make the same amount of money as Netflix is earning right now.

The battle of the most dominant streaming service will be interesting to watch in the next few years!
