The Mandalorian boss teases spin-off movie after season 2 and insists there's 'no rulebook' with Disney+
THE Mandalorian boss has teased a spin-off movie after the end of season 2 as there is "no rulebook" with Disney+.
After the huge success of the first series in 2019 and the second due to premiere later this month, Jon Favreau has admitted that he's "open to the idea" of taking it one step further for the big screen.
The showrunner of the hugely popular American space Western television series believes that as time has progressed, it's looking even more likely than before that it could actually happen.
In a recent interview with Variety, he said: “The line is blurring now. Things that you would have only seen in the movie theatre, you’re seeing on streaming, and I think it could go the other way as well.”
He added that they're in "no rush" to expand the much-loved series onto the big screen, but admitted "we’re definitely open to it to see where the story leads us and have that flexibility — because there’s no rulebook now.”
Despite being in uncertain times due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the producer has been able to do everything he needs from home and plans to keep on giving the fans what they want.

He said: “Technology is always offering new opportunities to tell stories in a fresh way.
“It’s a very exciting time to be doing this and I feel very grateful that we’re able to be able to work remotely, because of the nature of the technology that we’re dealing with.
"So we’re continuing to try to move forward and keep the ball rolling, even though it’s been a challenging time for everyone.”
Jon isn't the only one who would love for a spin-off as Pedro Pascal, who plays the cosmic bounty hunter on the show, admitted that he too thinks it could be done.
The actor added: “I think that the work is so beautiful that I would love for that to be held by a big screen experience.
“But it seems to work so well that also I’m not sure it’s something that I would want corrupted by any kind of change, you know?
"I mean, I certainly know that the challenge can be met. It’s not like these people don’t have the experience. If anybody can do it, they can!”
After taking the world by storm after its launch in November 2019, the second series just around the corner and due to hit our screens on October 30 2020.
Then in April this year, a pre-production on a third season had been announced and Jon certainly isn't about to let fans down.
He told Variety that they are "on schedule" to start “before the end of the year,” after Pascal finishes filming for a role in the an upcoming film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
He added: "We’re operating under the assumption that we’ll be able to go forward. We’re in very small situations and oftentimes we have a lot of characters in masks.
“And we also have a lot of digital work that augments things. So we’re a show that’s probably well-equipped to be flexible based on the protocols that are emerging surrounding work restarting.”
