George Lucas Surprises Jon Favreau on 'The Mandalorian' Set
Especially since we don't recall seeing Lucas stopping by other recent "Star Wars" productions to say hello.
Favreau shared the photo on Instagram, which prompted fans to speculate that Lucas might be directing an episode of the upcoming series.
Lucasfilm previously announced that although Favreau is creating and writing the "Star Wars" spin-off, the show will have numerous directors, including Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard (the Force is strong in her family), Dave Filoni, Deborah Chow, and Rick Famuyiwa.
At this point, we don't know any cast members. And since the only photos we've seen have been of props and a helmeted character, the mystery remains.
Here's the official synopsis: "After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the 'Star Wars' universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic."
The show is set to premiere on Disney's upcoming streaming service sometime in late 2019.
