Jon Favreau Looks Ahead At The Mandalorian’s Future
The Mandalorian is already halfway through its first season on Disney+, and a second season is already in the works. Showrunner and writer Jon Favreau recently updated addressed the future of the series during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I’m putting a lot of effort working with Dave Filoni to figure out what the overarching story is and the storyline for all these characters and what the world is like,” explained Favreau. “We want to make sure that we have a road map, because we’re also a puzzle piece that fits into a larger Star Wars universe that has a lot of other movies and a lot of other projects, and we want to make sure we’re consistent with them.”
Favreau also noted that the nearly three decade gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens has given The Mandalorian a lot to play with.
“We have a good 25-year patch of road (in the Star Wars canon) that nobody is exploring right now, and it’s the most interesting time for me as a storyteller to explore — the time after the fall of the Empire and before the resurgence of the darker forces.”
Additionally, Favreau explained that it wasn’t easy to hide the Child/Baby Yoda. However, he doesn’t regret making that choice.
“I think that part of what people really value is to be surprised and delighted. And I think that’s becoming all too rare,” said Favreau. “It’s very difficult to keep secrets about projects you’re working on.”
