Jon Favreau has the future of The Mandalorian all penned down.
The writer-director said in an interview with BFMTV Inside that he has already written the script for season 4.
"Season 4? Yeah, I’ve written it already. We have to know where we are going to tell a fully formed story. So, we had mapped it out, Dave [Filoni] and I. And then slowly you just write each episode. So I was writing it during post-production, because all of it has to feel like a continuation and one full story."
Favreau further revealed that the purpose of drafting the story beyond the upcoming season was to streamline it with Dave Filoni’s Ahsoka and Jon Watts’ Skeleton Crew. He explained that these two shows will also be set in the same time period as The Mandalorian.
After Pedro Pascal’s character had a pretty significant role in The Book of Boba Fett, one can assume more such important crossovers to take place in the Star Wars Disney+ shows.
For those who skipped The Book of Boba Fett, Mando’s story took quite an interesting turn on that show. Reluctant to stick to the Jedi ways at the cost of his relationship with Din Djarin, Grogu gave up training with Luke Skywalker. He was escorted back by R2D2 to Tatooine, where Djarin was piecing back together a Naboo-commissioned N-1 starfighter with Peli Motto.
However, we see in a later fight scene that Grogu’s training with Luke had not gone entirely to waste. In fact, he even managed to use the Force and save Djarin’s life once.
The Mandalorian season 3 is expected to see how much Grogu masters using the Force. The installment will also address questions about Din Djarin’s identity, the past of Mandalore, and the consequences of him wielding the Darksaber.
