Jon Favreau recently revealed that The Mandalorian season three won’t start production until after The Book of Boba Fett finishes filming.
The Mandalorian season two has been a crowd-pleasing affair from the very beginning, re-introducing characters from other films and animated shows like Ahsoka Tano, Bo-Katan and most importantly: Boba Fett. And following the surprising reveal in the post-credits scene of the finale that the bounty hunter is getting his own series, creator Jon Favreau appeared on Good Morning America to discuss the project.
“At the end of [Season 2], Boba Fett came out and it said, ‘The Book of Boba Fett, Coming December of 2021.’ And that wasn’t part of the big Disney announcement, but here’s the logo. We wanted to hold this back because we didn’t want to spoil the surprise during the big Disney announcement of all the shows when Kathleen Kennedy was up there. And so they let me keep this one a secret.”
There was initially some confision over whether The Book of Boba Fett would be the focus of The Mandalorian season three – Jon Favreau confirmed that the project is its own series set in the same timeline. The creator also explained that the third season of The Mandalorian will go into production as soon as work is finished on the Boba Fett spin-off. Take a look at his comments below.
“So this is actually separate from ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3. But what we didn’t say in that announcement is that the next show coming up, Kathy said the ‘next chapter’ and that’s going to be ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ and then we go into production right after that on Season 3 of ‘The Mandalorian’ back with the main character that we all have known and loved. So that’s going to be pretty soon following that. So we’re working on that pre-production now, while we’re in production on ‘Boba Fett.’”
