Favreau and Filoni’s Mandalorian partnership
Filoni talked about Favreau’s reaction when he first talked about it: “When he grew up and started to be this kid and let it be Yoda’s kid, I was like,”Oh, That is very much It was tricky, because there had never been anything like this outside of Yoda, and then Yaddle entered the prequel to Jedi Council. This is a sacred thing… When we are going to tell a thing we intend to do, we just have to be responsible. The fans want to know that things are carefully thought out and decided carefully.

Favreau said: “I will come up with ideas, and sometimes Dave will say:’You can’t do this in “Star Wars”.” Then I will quote examples from movies or “The Clone Wars” and try to This is the reason. I’m like a lawyer talking to the judge.I treat him like he treats George [Lucas]. I will not do anything without Dave’s consent. To his credit, he understands that “Star Wars” must be interesting and evolving. “

The first season of The Mandalorian was a huge success for Disney+. It was warmly welcomed by “Star Wars” fans and the film industry.

We don’t know how far he will go, they are looking for new ways to push the limit.”
Esposito said that in the second season of The Mandalorian, there will be more villains, Moff Gideon, including directing “bigger vehicles”, spending some personal time with Baby Yoda, and “toe-to-toe with Mando.” This is a landmark battle. I also want to disarm him psychologically. who knows? Maybe he has the opportunity to fight for me. You might think that I am the villain, but I am trying to use some energy and strength to create a path that is best for everyone.
