‘The Mandalorian’: Jon Favreau had no plans to bring Luke Skywalker in season 2



The introduction of Luke Skywalker at the end of Season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian‘ surprised many fans, as no one imagined the Jedi Knight would arrive to save the day and take Grogu as a student to his academy.

But it seems that Jon Favreu, creator of the series, did not foresee this event in the plot, at least at the beginning.

In an interview with WGAW, the filmmaker said he risked the idea while writing the screenplay, and it was such an unpredictable proposition that he himself believed it wouldn’t work.

“You know what? The story unfolded as I was writing. ‘The Mandalorian’ inherits a lot of the existing stories from the ‘Star Wars’ universe … I always take into consideration the materials that predated the series, be it books, comics, or movies. Luke is an essential part of these documents and I thought, “Why not?” As long as it didn’t create friction with what we had already planned, it was a great idea.

He continued:

“I didn’t know if this would work, until we started to plant the idea in the episode that in Ahsoka is about the Jedi temple in Tython. From there, it was just a matter of putting it all together.

Fortunately, the idea was proven, and audiences got to see the character at the height of his powers, easily defeating a horde of Dark Troopers as if they were made of cardboard.

And you, what did you think of Luke’s presence?

Recalling that The Illuminerdi revealed that production-related sources revealed that the 3’s recordings are scheduled to start on April 5.

However, it has been said that the start of the new cycle will in fact be moved to early 2022, instead of December 2021.

That’s because the spin-off series “The Boba Fett Book” is set to hit the Disney + catalog during this time, setting the stage for the 3rd season of “The Mandalorian.”

While nothing has been confirmed, The Illuminerdi has already provided inside information from several productions, which later turned out to be true.

In the meantime, it should be remembered that all the episodes of season 2 are available on Disney +.

Created by Jon Favreau (from the live-action ‘The Lion King‘), the series is set in the same universe as the ‘Star Wars’ franchise.

The plot takes place after the fall of the Empire and before the insurrection of the First Order. The story follows the journey of a lone gunner to the far reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.

The cast includes Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Nick Nolte and Werner Herzog.
