Jon Favreau: ‘The Mandalorian’ Doesn’t Have a Specific Finale In Mind

25 February 2023, Saturday
HBO recently announced that the Emmy-winning show "Succession" will be wrapping up with its fourth season. On the other hand, the team behind “Yellowjackets” has been vocal about having a five-season plan. In contrast, Jon Favreau, the creator of the popular “Star Wars” series "The Mandalorian", has yet to hint that he has a set endgame in mind.

Favreau told Total Film magazine that "The Mandalorian" is a middle chapter of a much larger story and that it will have resolution over time without coming to a definitive ending. "Though we'll have resolution over time with these characters…it’s not like there’s a finale that we’re building to that I have in mind," he said. Season 3 of the popular show is set to premiere next month.

Favreau expressed that far from wanting to end the stories he has been telling, he would actually prefer them to go on. He loves the way the adventures play out and wants to keep doing them, suggesting the characters he has been writing about could be around for quite some time. Favreau loves writing stories in the voice of the characters and looks forward to doing more in the future.

Favreau has declared that writing for a fourth season of "The Mandalorian" has already been accomplished. The show is part of a larger Star Wars narrative that includes upcoming Disney+ series such as "Ahsoka" and "Skeleton Crew".

The director told BFM TV, “Season 4, yeah I’ve written it already. We had to plan out everything so it could come together as one entire story. During post-production, I was already writing out each episode. It all has to feel like one seamless narrative.”

Favreau is uncertain about the ending of “The Mandalorian,” but certain about its weekly release schedule. He stated that he loves to see if audience members guess correctly and react to it, indicating that the show is doing its job well.

"The Mandalorian" Season 3 premieres March 1 on Disney+. Favreau expressed his appreciation for the weekly episode format, noting that it allows for conversation and speculation which helps him evaluate the show's success. 

“I like that we’re on Disney+ where it’s each week is another episode, it’s not all dropped at once, so it allows for a back and forth," Favreau said. "And I love to see if we guessed right, I love to see which ones the people react to better, and ultimately get the report card if we’re doing our job well.”
