Despite Season 2 of The Mandalorian not yet being on our screens, and despite an internal rumor of some issues on the set, and despite the wider Lucasfilm Star Wars universe being a smorgasbord of failure, disarray and missed opportunities, the show will power through!
The Mandalorian is the one bright spot in the current Star Wars universe so Disney+ are going to leverage it good and hard. Season 2 lands imminently and now one of the stars has confirmed work is underway on Season 3. That star also went on to talk Season 4.
In an interview with People magazine, Moff Gideon himself speaks! Giancarlo Esposito says Season 2 ramps things up, and Season 3 goes even further. He also talks the legacy of his character:
“We’re living in a universe that is huge and there’s so much to explore. So I think this show is going to lay the groundwork for the depth and breadth that’s gonna come in Season 3 and Season 4, where you’re really gonna start to get answers.”
What’s this? A thought through series of events that connect to drive a narrative in a coherent way? A plan? A PLAN? At Lucasfilm?
No way, it will never catch on over there.
