The MandoVerse Can Have A Climax AND Keep Going Says Dave Filoni

Dave Filoni says the MandoVerse can have a big climax AND keep going afterwards.

Dave Filoni says the ‘MandoVerse’ can have a big climax AND keep going afterwards. This all comes from the fact that fellow exec producer of the ‘MandoVerse’, Jon Favreau recently said he’d like to keep going for as long as possible. However previously Lucasfilm president Kathy Kennedy had indicated the ‘MandoVerse’ was leading towards a big climax. In a recent interview with The Wrap, Filoni says both can be true.

“Well, from a certain point of view, it could. It could build to a climactic thing and “The Mandalorian” could still go on. It’s not necessarily an either/or, is it?”

“It’s an interesting way to think about it. I tend to think, as we’ve been working on the “The Mandalorian” and then writing “Ahsoka,” and then Jon Watts came in with “Skeleton Crew,” there is an entire time period that is post-“Return of the Jedi.” And I look at that time period, which before “The Force Awakens,” is around 30 years of time. When you look at the original trilogy, it’s a much less significant amount of time that those three movies take place in. And so, what I like is that we’re really building very slowly an ecosystem of characters and politics and events in the post-“Return of the Jedi” time period. And that may or may not expand in a bigger way as we add more shows to it and add more characters to it.”

“The good thing is that we’re all talking creatively together about where these stories are all going. And I love whiteboards, and I whiteboard everything and have timelines. They always start back with “The Phantom Menace” and they always go out to “The Rise of Skywalker.” I have all these slots in between and where everybody’s doing everything, so I can look at it all and commiserate with Kathy on what’s going on here, what’s going on there? It’s very fun.”

“I think that the reality of there being a big event in this time period is very real, is all I would say to that. But yes, if Jon wanted to keep making “Mandalorian” stories, as long as he does not get bumped off in said titanic event, then they, I suppose, could continue. There doesn’t seem to be any lack of interest in Grogu and Mando, that’s for sure.”

I’ve said before I really enjoy the ‘MandoVerse’ and it should not end anytime soon. However if shows have no real end that can cause issues as well, so I would not want this to go on forever. Better to burn out, than to fade away.
