During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live for The Lion King, director Jon Favreau revealed that he is already working on the script for Season 2 of The Mandalorian TV series.Following Kimmel’s question of, “Can ya tell us anything about The Mandalorian or is it secret?” Favreau responded, “well it’s secret, but I’ll tell ya.”
Every Actor and Character Confirmed for The Mandalorian
“It’s about a bounty hunter, it’s after Return of the Jedi. So the Empire’s gone and all hell’s breaking loose in the outer rim and its about the scum and villainy, that now once you take out the rule of law – what happens?” Favreau continued, “Chaos takes over and you have a lot of the unseemly characters. It’s kinda like, ya know, when you meet Han Solo at the beginning of Star Wars: A New Hope.”
Favreau then added, “We’re done with the first season and I was actually writing part of the second season now, so I’m having a blast,” Favreau said.
He also explained that he’s always been interested in the characters at Mos Eisley, such as the bounty hunters and rogue gallery characters.
Favreau is writing the series and is an executive producer along with Dave Filoni, who will be directing the first episode. Deborah Chow, Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, and Bryce Dallas Howard will all be directing other episodes.
