Fans of The Mandalorian are already eagerly awaiting the third season of the hit Star Wars present, however creator Jon Favreau has revealed that he’s already engaged on the scripts for season 4. With some large exhibits heading to Disney+ within the close to future, a fourth season of The Mandalorian might be not less than two years away, however whereas speaking to CinemaBlend at Star Wars Celebration Favreau additionally hinted that there are many concepts about the place the collection will go.
Jon Favreau had a huge impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he directed Iron Man, and his contribution to the Marvel saga has continued with subsequent Iron Man motion pictures in addition to his look within the franchise as Happy Hogan. In latest years although, Favreau has grow to be one of many driving forces behind the Star Wars franchise’s film to TV, engaged on The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and a variety of different tasks. With season 3 of The Mandalorian now set to premiere in early 2023, the author and director is already deep in growth of the fourth season. He informed CinemaBlend:
“With television, we’re very lucky that we don’t have to rush things through into an hour-and-a-half, two hours. We get to tell stories slowly. So now, as Dave [Filoni]’s doing Ahsoka, it’s very much informing the writing that I’m doing for [The Mandalorian] Season 4. It becomes – how should I put it – more precise. When I was writing the first season of Mandalorian, I could do anything, set it anywhere. Dave [Filoni] would read it, we’d go back and forth, I would adjust. And there it was. Now we have to figure out why there are certain Mandalorians who wear helmets, certain ones who don’t wear helmets, what’s happening on Mandalore, what’s Bo-Katan doing at the time? How does she feel about that? Where is the Darksaber? So it really creates very fertile ground for imagination, for storytelling.”
The Mandalorian Pulls From The Original Star Wars Trilogy
Being set 5 years after the occasions of Return of the Jedi, The Mandalorian is a difficult collection to barter, having to canonically stay true to what has come earlier than whereas additionally being conscious of the sequel trilogy. However, in relation to retaining the entire threads from getting knotted, the crew have the strolling Star Wars bible that’s Dave Filoni to depend on, and Favreau commented that in relation to crossovers and surprising character appearances, it’s Feloni who makes all of that doable. He mentioned:
“I think that inevitably, no matter how simple you start, the story threads start to connect and weave and overlap. And with Dave Filoni’s deep understanding of everything around the time period, opportunities will always arise when we have story meetings and conversations about, ‘Well, you know what character would be here now…’ I mean, that’s really how the Luke thing happened. It wasn’t that we necessarily planned to include Luke Skywalker in Season 2. But as we were looking for [Grogu] to get training, we started to weigh out, ‘Well, what Jedi are around? Who’s left?’ And it started to not make sense for it not to be Luke. As we start to tell stories, those stories take on lives of their own, and they have trajectories. And then as those trajectories begin to organically intersect, larger stories with more characters start to make more sense.”
There is a number of growth taking place throughout the Star Wars universe proper now, and with plans spreading out years into the long run, it doesn’t appear to be there may be any intention of stopping that anytime quickly.
