Is that a Clone Wars speeder on The Mandalorian set?


A speeder has been spotted on Jon Favreau’s set, prompting a theory that it could have ties to The Clone Wars.

A speeder sharing similarities to one from The Clone Wars was spotted on the set of The Mandalorian, according to Amanda Ward of

The speeder was hidden underneath a tarp, but Ward was able to make out some details of it. It wasn’t painted, but will most likely have a lot of tech added to it in post-production or earlier. The speeder is similar to one that was seen in The Lawless, a memorable episode from The Clone Wars. 

More from The Mandalorian

Corey Van Dyke, who Ward called “The King of The Clone Wars,” verified the speeder shared some characteristics of the one seen in The LawlessFor example, the rear thruster sections have a similar shape to one another. Even though The Mandalorian takes place about 30 years after The Clone Wars, you can’t help but get excited about the sighting.

For those of you who might have forgotten what went down in The Lawless, let me give you a quick refresher:

  • Obi-Wan arrives on Mandalore to save Duchess Satine, who’s been locked away in a cell by Darth Maul.
  • Maul, who has taken control of the Mandalorian throne, taunts Obi-Wan before killing Satine in front of him.
  • Maul and Savage foolishly take on Darth Sidious in combat, resulting in Savage’s death.

I don’t know about you, but this just gets me even more hyped for The Mandalorian. From the outside looking in, it seems like Jon Favreau is making all the right moves in terms of giving fans something to look forward to.

As for The Clone Wars ties, I’m not sure how that would work 30 years later, and I don’t care. I will take TCW  wherever I can get it. My guess would be that our protagonist uses it as his own ride, even though it might be beat up pretty badly.
