The Mandalorian is going to touch on the subject of the formation of the First Order.
When the new Star Wars movie arrived in theatres, 30 years passed between the two series, and there was a new enemy for our heroes to fight. They were called the 'First Order', and by the time we got to see who they were, the whole remnant of the 'Galactic Empire' was a fully equipped outfit who were on the hunt for the last of the rebels.
This was all pretty confusing for a fan who didn’t read any of the companion books which preceded The Force Awakens. So, how was it we were there in a galaxy where 'Palpatine' was dead, and the whole galactic empire was gone, and all of a sudden 30 years later, there is this bunch of well-armed thugs who were in possession of a Death Star, the size of a planet?

There was this leader of the group called 'Snoke', and there was this 'Darth Vader' type looking Sith warrior, it was all pretty jarring but now, it seems, we will finally be able to get some answers relating to origin of the First Order and how the Galactic Empire was reborn from the ashes of the past to undermine the Republic once more.
'The Mandalorian' is coming to Disney Plus on 12 November; the same the much-awaited streaming platform of Disney is making its debut. The creators of the show are now saying the show will deal with the appearance of the First Order and also deal with the origin of the nefarious group.

“This doesn’t turn into a good guy universe because you blew up two Death Stars,” die-hard Star Wars fan and creator of the best animated Star Wars show, Dave Filoni joked. “You get that the Rebels won and they’re trying to establish a Republic, but there’s no way that could have set in for everybody all at once. You have in a Western where you’re out on the frontier, and there might be Washington, and they might have some marshals, but sometimes good luck finding one.”
“Also, what could happen in the 30 years between celebrating the defeat of the Empire and then the First Order?” Disney’s go-to director Jon Favreau teased. “You come in on Episode VII, [the First Order are] not just starting out. They’re pretty far along.”
“Pretty well equipped,” Filoni jumped in. Then Favreau said, “So somehow, things weren’t necessarily managed as well as they could have been if [the galaxy] ended up in hot water again like that.”
For people who read the book 'Bloodline' by Claudia Gray, there the writer shows exactly how and where the First Order is hiding and biding their time to attack the New Republic. The Claudia Grey book, where the main character is 'Princess Leia', shows how the First Order was allowed to fester and assemble under their noses. Later on, it is revealed the Republic senate was infiltrated by the Empire sympathizers who wanted to return to the ways of the past, and First Order gave them the greed of returning to the old days which allowed an inactive senate unable to protect the galaxy against the First Order.
The book was more about the life of Leia after the war, but it was also the origin of 'Kylo Ren' who flees the training conducted by his uncle and the hero of the Republic, 'Luke Skywalker'. Luke is discredited after story leeks he is the son of Darth Vader which in turn pushed Ben Solo to the dark side and causes him to adopt the name, Kylo Ren.
We know the great actor Giancarlo Esposito is playing a high ranking Galactic Empire member who is stranded after the demise of the Empire. He may want to start the group up again by finding like-minded people but it more of speculation now. The books, though touched on the stories about Kylo Ren and the First Order, but they never really revealed the origin of the First Order beyond some cursory remarks about amassing on the outer rims.

Mandalorian is a place on the outer rim which resisted both the Galactic Empire and the New Republic which allows the place to be the perfect jumping-off point for the First Order. Going by the comments of the series’ creators, it seems more and more likely The Mandalorian will talk about the origin of the First Order.
