The opportunity of a serious crossover occasion between the entire varied Disney+ “Star Wars” collection set inside the identical time interval as “The Mandalorian” is “very actual” based on govt producer Dave Filoni.
This yr will see two new collection hit screens which are set in the identical a number of years post-“Return of the Jedi” time interval as “The Mandalorian” – specifically “Ahsoka” and “Skeleton Crew”. They be a part of the beforehand aired “The E-book of Boba Fett” which can also be in the identical interval.
In late 2020, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy teased a “climactic story occasion” would happen in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later that will “culminate” your complete ‘MandoVerse’.
Extra not too long ago Jon Favreau stated all of the tales may have “conflicts and resolutions” down the highway. Then got here speak that each “Ahsoka” and “Skeleton Crew” immediately tie into each other.
Now, in a latest interview with The Wrap, Filoni was requested about the opportunity of a crossover occasion and teased it may properly occur:
“Properly, from a sure perspective, it may. It may construct to a climactic factor and ‘The Mandalorian’ may nonetheless go on. It’s not essentially an both/or, is it? It’s an attention-grabbing approach to consider it.
What I like is that we’re actually constructing very slowly an ecosystem of characters and politics and occasions within the post-‘Return of the Jedi’ time interval. And which will or might not increase in an even bigger approach as we add extra reveals to it and add extra characters to it.
I believe that the fact of there being a giant occasion on this time interval may be very actual, is all I might say to that. However sure, if Jon wished to maintain making ‘Mandalorian’ tales, so long as he doesn’t get got rid of in stated titanic occasion, then they, I suppose, may proceed. There doesn’t appear to be any lack of curiosity in Grogu and Mando, that’s for positive.”
Filoni additionally signifies everybody concerned is conscious of your complete Skywalker Saga and the occasions in between, and they also’re speaking about the place this ‘MandoVerse’ goes:
“The great factor is that we’re all speaking creatively collectively about the place these tales are all going. And I really like whiteboards, and I whiteboard every thing and have timelines.
They all the time begin again with ‘The Phantom Menace’ they usually all the time exit to ‘The Rise of Skywalker.’ I’ve all these slots in between and the place all people’s doing every thing, so I can have a look at all of it and commiserate with Kathy on what’s happening right here, what’s happening there? It’s very enjoyable.”
The feedback come within the wake of the third episode of the third season of “The Mandalorian” which provided a really totally different take from the standard episode and felt extra “Andor”-like in its strategy which put a lot of the deal with former Imperial scientist Penn Pershing (Omid Abtahi) and explored extra concerning the politics of the New Republic.
