Jon Favreau has been quite the busy man for Disney. Whether it’s directing live-action remakes to Star Wars TV shows, Favreau has nearly done it all. However, no matter how much experience you gain from each of these daunting projects, there is always something to learn, especially when it involves Star Wars.
Recently, Favreau revealed some advice George Lucas had given him while working on his upcoming Disney+ TV show, ‘The Mandalorian’, coming November 12th:
“We had a long talk with each other. One thing [George Lucas] said to me was, ’remember, Jon, the real audience for all stories and all myths is the kids that are coming of age’.
We enjoy the stories as adults, but really, storytelling is about imparting the wisdom of the previous generations on to the children who are becoming adults, and giving them a context for how to behave and how to learn the lessons of the past without making the mistakes on their own.
That’s the hope, that you can teach them how to avoid all the hardship but garner all the wisdom.”
Even though Lucas sold his film company to Disney back in 2012, he continues to impart his wisdom to all those who try to bring their own style to the Star Wars franchise.
According to Jon Favreau, ‘The Mandalorian’ is expected to be after the ‘Return of the Jedi’ and after the fall of the Emperor. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, he shared:
“It’s after Return of the Jedi, so the Empire is gone and all hell is breaking loose in the Outer Rim. And it’s about the scum and villainy, that once you take out the rule of law, what happens? Chaos takes over and you have all of these unseemly characters.”
Besides that, some exciting post-production news has surfaced from the man himself, Jon Favreau, and it looks like he’s now in the stage of putting the finishing touches on his masterpiece with a wonderful ensemble of music composed by Ludwig Göransson:
It looks like production is starting to wind down for Season 1 of ‘The Mandalorian’. Make sure to check back here for the latest news about ‘The Mandalorian’ and more!
