As Star Wars fans continue to love and enjoy what The Mandalorian Season 1 has to offer, we can’t help but think about and wonder where this story is going to take the characters next and see what adventures await them in the future.
There are so many wonderful, likable characters that have been introduced in this show, and series creator Jon Favreau sees the opportunity to explore them more. In a recent interview with THR, the filmmaker explained:
“There’s definitely the opportunity to explore these characters beyond what we’ve presented on the show. There’s a very fluid line between what’s in the movie theaters and what’s on the screen at home. It’s very exciting for me because I get to tell stories over the course of several hours and not just within the footprint of one theater-going experience. I think it’s only a matter of time before we cross paths the other way.
“I’m putting a lot of effort working with [The Mandalorian producer] Dave Filoni to figure out what the overarching story is and the storyline for all these characters and what the world is like. We want to make sure that we have a road map, because we’re also a puzzle piece that fits into a larger Star Wars universe that has a lot of other movies and a lot of other projects, and we want to make sure we’re consistent with them.”
It’s certainly going to be a fun and wild ride to watch the stories of these characters continue and see where they end up. Favreau also opened up a little bit more about The Child a.k.a. Baby Yoda and bringing him into the series and promises that we’ll learn more about him:
“We’ll learn more about him over the course of the season. I think what’s great about what George [Lucas] created is that Yoda proper, the character that we grew up watching, was always shrouded in mystery, and that was what made him so archetypal and so mythic. We know who he is based on his behavior and what he stands for, but we don’t know a lot of details about where he comes from or his species. I think that’s why people are so curious about this little one of the same species.”
While Baby Yoda is ridiculously adorable to watch, I’m extremely curious to learn more about him and what his overall role in the story will end up being. Where is the character going to end up? What is his purpose!? I guess we’ll eventually find out.
