The first episode of the live-action Star Wars series has only been available to watch on Disney+ for under 48 hours, and yet we’re already hearing tonnes of info about the show’s future. Maybe that cliffhanger has everyone excited?
We’ll remind you again there has only been one episode, but Disney Studios co-chairman Alan Horn is already talking about the possibility of spinning The Mandalorian off for a movie at some point.
“The Mandalorian is already proving to be a big thing,” he told Variety. “So, if that series proves to be so compelling that we reverse engineer it into a theatrical release, a two-hour film or whatever.”
While Disney considers the possibility of a Mandalorian movie, series creator Jon Favreau and his team are deep into filming the second season on location.
Favreau shared a first-look at the titular character’s glistening helmet on Instagram on Wednesday (November 13), writing: “Greetings from the set of #TheMandalorian season 2.”
We’re okay with more series or even a movie as long as there are many more references to the Star Wars Holiday Special. Thanks again for making it canon, Favreau!
