Jon Favreau Already Knows How The Mandalorian Will End

Jon Favreau already knows how Disney+'s hit Star Wars show The Mandalorian is going to end. Favreau and Dave Filoni kicked off a new age for Star Wars in 2019 when the first live-action series was released to coincide with the launch of Disney's streaming service. The story of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu immediately captured the hearts of millions as The Mandalorian became a worldwide sensation. Although the series takes place between George Lucas' original trilogy and Disney's sequel trilogy, it has mostly carved out its own place in the Star Wars timeline.

Thanks to the continued success of The Mandalorian season 2, Favreau and Filoni are now shepherding multiple projects based around this point in time. The Book of Boba Fett was used as a spinoff for the titular bounty hunter (Temuera Morrison), while Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka Tano is also receiving her own series. These shows and more will serve to explore the galaxy and build up other stories around The Mandalorian. And even though only two seasons of the main show have been released tat this point and no immediate end is in sight, that doesn't mean a plan to conclude the story doesn't exist.

During his appearance at Star Wars Celebration 2022, The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau spoke to Collider about the future of the series. This included him being asked about what he and Filoni know about how the show will end. Favreau teased that they talk about the endgame for Din and Grogu quite often and have a general idea of how The Mandalorian will end.

I think Dave and I talked about this a lot. And, it’s interesting how things evolve and change in small ways, but we all know where everything’s going to end because of when the time period ends. We know that the First Order is going to appear. So, there are things on the horizon that we know, but that’s 25 years in the future. Within that, we also know storylines that are going to unfold within the characters that we’re either inheriting or developing. So, I would say that there is a lot of preparation done in broad strokes with how do these storylines that we’ve established culminate, but we’re doing that within the confines and parameters of what’s pre-existing in canon

Favreau and Filoni already having plans for how The Mandalorian will end allows them to use all of the properties at their disposal to build up to this event. Season 3 appears to pit Din Djarin against Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) and includes a trip to Mandalore. Favreau has also confirmed that The Mandalorian season 4 is currently being written, but it is unknown if that will be the final season. Previously, it was announced that the series and its adjacent shows would all culminate into a crossover event.

Although many are nowhere near ready for The Mandalorian end, it should be viewed as a great sign that Favreau and Filoni know how and where the story will end. All of the details might not be ironed out just yet, but even knowing a general journey for the main characters is beneficial to good storytelling. It will hopefully mean The Mandalorian avoids some of the failings of Disney's sequel trilogy, which is often criticized for not having a clear plan. Favreau and Filoni seem to have one in mind as of now, and audiences will get to see the next chapter when The Mandalorian season 3 returns in 2023.
