Star Wars: George Lucas on set of The Mandalorian with Jon Favreau

George Lucas took the time to visit Jon Favreau on set of the upcoming Star Wars live-action series The Mandalorian.

Happy Birthday, Jon Favreau! The man behind the highly anticipated live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, received a surprise from the one and only George Lucas as he celebrated his birthday on set.

Lucas is certainly no stranger to appearing on the set of current Star Wars projects and is more than willing to share some of his wisdom and advice when called upon. He appeared on the set of Solo: A Star Wars movie where he reportedly gave some insight into how Han would have really reacted in a particular scene.

However, while making surprise appearances on set, it should be pointed out that Lucas does not go out of his to overshadow whomever it is currently at the helm of the particular project, Something which he should be praised for.

Anyway, back to what you came here for, George Lucas appearing on the set of The Mandalorian.

Birthday Surprise

The only thing you can say for certain is it looks very much like a Cantina, but that’s about it really.

To be fair, it’s just nice to see, that even though George Lucas has passed the keys to the kingdom on, he still likes to drop in and see how things are going with the universe that he created so long ago.

But that wasn’t the only surprise Favreau had in store. Dave Filoni dropped by too, putting a whole lot of Star Wars knowledge in one room
