The climax we saw in season 2 of The Mandalorian wasn’t always part of Jon Favreau’s plans heading into the season’s conclusion.It has been over a month since we witnessed the end of season 2 of The Mandalorian. The real-action Star Wars series did not leave with a brutal episode in which we witnessed the return of one of the most beloved characters in the franchise, Luke Skywalker, who thanks to technology returned to his “young years” to save Din Djarin, Grogu, and the rest of the group faced an unfortunate fate as Moff Gideon’s Dark Soldiers prepared to break into the command bridge of Giancarlo Esposito’s character cruiser.Despite the fact that the Jedi presence had been sensing since the end of season 1 of The Mandalorian, Jon Favreau was not clear who was going to be in charge of taking charge of this little fifty-year-old with sensitivity to the Force.
The presence of Ahsoka Tano made us think at first that Anakin Skywalker’s Togruta and former Padawan would be in charge of training Grogu, but finally his episode turned out to be more of a preview of what Lucasfilm has prepared for us in the Ahsoka series starring by Rosario Dawson.Speaking with WGA, Jon Favreau assured that the appearance of Luke Skywalker was not in the plans from the beginning. While it was a logical choice for the era in which The Mandalorian is set, it wasn’t until the overall plot of season 2 was taking shape that he and Dave Filoni made the decision to include the legendary Jedi who destroyed the first Star of God. death. Looking at the result, it is clear that they made the right decision.
