Jon Favreau Teases The Mandalorian Could Lead Into The Sequel Trilogy

The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 4 Disney Plus

Jon Favreau has seemingly teased that his The Mandalorian show will end up leading into the Star Wars sequel trilogy. He revealed this during an interview with The Writers Guild Of America West.

It was revealed at the Disney Investor’s Day presentation that there are a whole bunch of Star Wars shows being made that are spinoffs of The Mandalorian. Shows such as Ahsoka, The Book Of Boba Fett (yes, that one wasn’t announced at the Disney Investor’s Day Presentation) and Rangers Of The New Republic.

However, it seems that The Mandalorian will also end up leading into the Star Wars sequel trilogy. This eventuality was hinted at by the show’s creator, Jon Favreau himself during a recent interview.

Here’s what Jon Favreau had to say about The Mandalorian leading into the Star Wars sequel trilogy:

The story unfolded as I wrote it. The Mandalorian inherits a great deal from existing Star Wars stories, and when I write, that context is always a consideration. It became clear that, within the established continuity, certain things were likely to transpire.

I do not know whether this idea would be very welcome to a number of Star Wars fans who did not like the sequel trilogy and love The Mandalorian. We’ll have to wait and see what happens with this Star Wars TV show.
