People love The Mandalorian. Well, they love “Baby Yoda”- that’s for sure. While The Child may have made it to mainstream audiences, Star Wars fans are really into the entire package. The Mandalorian gives us the story, the acting, the grittiness, and the Star Wars feel that many wish had been captured better in the recent latest films.
Season 2 of the popular show wrapped up filming right before the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world, and soon filming will resume for Season 3. But could there be a Mandalorian movie?
See this post on Variety.com for more from Pedro Pascal and Jon Favreau on the future of The Mandalorian and the potential for a movie:
“The line is blurring now,” said Favreau. “Things that you would have only seen in the movie theater, you’re seeing on streaming, and I think it could go the other way as well.”
Whether that means Pascal’s tight-lipped bounty hunter could end up on a movie screen remains a tantalizing if uncertain possibility. Favreau said he’s in “no rush” to push the show beyond a streaming series. “But we’re definitely open to it,” he added, “and excited to see where the story leads us and have that flexibility — because there’s no rulebook now.”
“Technology is always offering new opportunities to tell stories in a fresh way,” he added. “It’s a very exciting time to be doing this and I feel very grateful that we’re able to be able to work remotely, because of the nature of the technology that we’re dealing with. So we’re continuing to try to move forward and keep the ball rolling, even though it’s been a challenging time for everyone.”
As for Pascal, the actor said he would “love” to make a “Mandalorian” movie, but he’s heard no discussion of one as of now.
Bottom line? We can’t say there will be a movie just yet, but we can say the potential is there and the fans are ready and willing to support it. For now, we can hold onto hope, enjoy the Netflix series as long as they will keep giving it to us, and wait to see what happens.
