News and updates regarding the upcoming Star Wars projects aren’t stopping (not that we’re complaining), and this one is particularly important. Jon Favreau, creator of the Star Wars Disney+ series The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett confirmed at the Star Wars Celebration event that The Mandalorian will return for Season 4. You can read Favreau’s statement below:
“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.” — Jon Favreau for CinemaBlend
Favreau is probably best known as the MCU veteran who directed the first two Iron man movies and starred in all three Iron Man movies, all three Spider-Man movies starring Tom Holland, and Avengers: Endgame, which makes him a member of both MCU’s cast and crew since the very beginning of the franchise and one of the most significant persons who ever worked on the franchise. Favreau has a long history of working with Disney. He directed 2016’s live-action remake of The Jungle Book and 2019’s remake of The Lion King.
Favreau created and wrote most of the episodes of The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars series which debuted in November 2019 as the launch series for Disney+. The series aired for two seasons so far, and the third season is set to be premiere on Disney’s platform in February 2023. The Mandalorian spawned several spin-offs and other live-action Star Wars series, including The Book of Boba Fett, which Favreau also created, and Ahsoka, which Favreau co-created with Dave Filoni, and it’s also set to premiere next year.
