Jon Favreau confirms that Dave Filoni is busy writing the screenplay for Ahsoka before starting work on Rangers Of The New Republic
Jon Favreau delivered a stellar second season of The Mandalorian. He orchestrated the return of Boba Fett and the live-action debut of Ahsoka Tano. And then blew us away with a shock cameo from Luke Skywalker. Next up, the visionary director is turning his attention to Star Wars: Ahsoka, and Rangers Of The New Republic.
During a recent interview with Good Morning America, Favreau opened up about the upcoming spin-offs. Giving us a taste of things to come.
“I’m working with my partner Dave Filoni, who is this fantastic producing partner, writer, who I met when I did a voice on The Clone Wars. We met up at the Skywalker Ranch. We’ve been working together on [The Mandalorian]. He’s doing Ahsoka, which he’s writing right now. Then we also have Rangers of the New Republic. All of them take place in the similar timeline here that is right after Return Of The Jedi.”
Although this isn’t much to go on, it does offer a window into the future of Star Wars on Disney Plus. Ahsoka Tano is Dave Filoni’s brainchild, and the thought of another writer handling her adventures does not appeal. And, having Ahsoka and Rangers: OTNR set in the same timeline as The Book Of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian hints at an expansive story for the future.
Lucasfilm has previously said that Rangers of the New Republic “will intersect with future stories and culminate into a climatic story event” which has exciting undertones for these shows. In addition to Filoni, Favreau has also bought in Robert Rodriguez to craft The Book Of Boba Fett.
Exciting times ahead.
