Redeeming itself in the eyes of many fans, The Mandalorian was considered to have saved the Star Wars franchise. Created by Jon Favreau, It stars Pedro Pascal as the Mandalorian and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon.
Due to the success of the series, we have seen the studio approve many other series based on stories never told, including The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the much-anticipated Acolyte. The success of The Mandalorian has also prompted many to ask for a film based on the series.
A movie on The Mandalorian?
Many fans are of the opinion that the stories from The Mandalorian would look great on the big screen and Pedro Pascal agrees with them. While being interviewed by Fandango, series director Rick Famuyiwa and Pedro Pascal were asked the question on the same topic, and the director said:
“I have no. You’re coming at us hard. Um, yeah, that’s something I don’t know anything about.”
But on the other hand, The Mandalorian actor was far more enthusiastic about the idea. Answering for the director and himself, he replied:
“I’ll answer for him. Yes, he wants to. Yes, he wants to, and that’s a great idea, and if it isn’t a conversation already, then it will be after today.”
The actor has already expressed interest in seeing his character on the big screen. Even though he doesn’t know when or how it might happen, he believes the transition to be only a matter of ‘when’ that ‘if’.
Who would direct the film?
The first obvious choice is Rick Famuyiwa, he has already directed three episodes, some of the best ones, and has produced many more too. In an interview with starwars.com, the official star wars page, the director further expanded on the endless storytelling possibility with the franchise, he said:
“So I think the future of Star Wars is continuing to sort of open up those doors and continue to tell these stories from a point of view, because that’s not what we’ve seen before. I want to continue to be a part of that storytelling“
Another popular choice among the fans has been Bryce Dallas Howard as she has directed a couple of episodes for The Mandalorian and one for The Book of Boba Fett. When asked about the opportunity she said someone has to ask her first to accept.
The Mandalorian season 3 is expected to premiere in February of 2023.
