Jon Favreau's Latest Mandalorian Update Is Breaking My Already Tattered Mind

Jon Favreau's Latest <i>Mandalorian </i>Update Is Breaking My Already Tattered Mind

For better or worse, Star Wars is fascinated with Star Wars. Countless books, games, comics, movies, and TV shows exist with the purpose of expounding on characters we already know a lot about. But Jon Favreau’s latest addition to The Mandalorian is leaving me questioning just how delightfully absurd this franchise can be sometimes.

I...don’t think this really warrants a spoiler warning, but...

Star Wars' 3-Year Box Office Hiatus Could Be Just What the Franchise Needs

<i>Star Wars</i>' 3-Year Box Office Hiatus Could Be Just What the Franchise Needs

Yesterday, Disney announced a fully armed and operational movie slate, bolstered by its recently formalized acquisition of Fox. But the news brought with it a bit of a bombshell for Star Wars fans: new films are coming, but they won’t start coming until 2022, three years after The Rise of Skywalker. And that’s actually pretty exciting.

“How can less Star Wars be a good thing,” you might ask?...

Even though Taika Waititi is one of the directors working on The Mandalorian, don’t expect the series to take a different tone than what Star Wars fans are used to.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association Monday, Waititi was asked if he was going to be able to put his own stamp on The Mandalorian —similar to how he made a Marvel movie his own with the irreverent, colorful, and hilarious...

From the Holiday Special to The Mandalorian , the Star Wars race that counts Boba and Jango Fett among its numbers has a long history in and out of the narrative of the galaxy far, far away. It’s one that Star Wars has long been enamored with—but its portrayal has ebbed and flowed in fascinating ways over the last four decades. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Just Like the Crushing Inevitability of Time Itself, There Will Be a Second Season of The Mandalorian

Always in motion, the future is. But one thing we should probably not be surprised to hear about in this era of more Star Wars than ever, is that we’re getting more Star Wars.

Speaking about his other Disney project on Jimmy Kimmel last night—that little known indie project , The Lion King—Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau confirmed that, to the surprise of very few people, work has already...

One of them takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. The other is either a medieval fantasy creation or some elaborate Westworld-style roleplaying game.

He only appeared for one second in The Empire Strikes Back, but Willrow Hood became a Star Wars icon. Not for any reason in particular, however. Just because he looked kind of funny running across Cloud City with what Star Wars fans have long since settled on is an “ice cream maker.”

Well, io9 can exclusively reveal that’s no ice cream maker. In fact, it’s a safe.

A camtono, actually. The word...
