“This is 100% a Jon Favreau stan account. What a legend! He directed one of the best Superhero origin film ever and helped give birth to the MCU, directed my all-time favourite Christmas film and has given me my favourite post original trilogy Star Wars content. #TheMandalorian”

Star Wars: The Mandalorian launched on Disney+ with the streaming service’s initial launch in 2019, and was an instant success, introducing us to Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), Grogu (AKA “The Child” or “Baby Yoda”), Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), and Cara Dune (Gina Carano) earning Disney+ its first emmys. From the reactions of these fans and scores more not shared here, it is clear that Favreau, Filoni, Bryce Dallas-Howard, and the entire production team were able to not only follow the first season but take the show to even higher heights by bringing back Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison), and introducing characters like Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) into the live-action realm of the Star Wars universe.

The final episode, “Chapter 16: The Rescue” is available for streaming now on Disney+. The third season of The Mandalorian is scheduled to be released around Christmas 2021.
