Dave Filoni has an ending in thoughts for the Mandoverse.
The multitalented Star Wars director reportedly has his sights set on a movie to shine off the arc begun in The Mandalorian and prolonged by way of exhibits like The Guide of Boba Fett and, doubtless, this 12 months’s Ahsoka. The Mandoverse has been rising, and it’s apparently set to ultimately make its strategy to the massive display.
Filoni is aware of Star Wars higher than anybody — some would argue much more than George Lucas, however we get sufficient hate mail, so that you gained’t discover us amongst them. Nonetheless, he’s one of many very important minds behind the trendy Star Wars, and his contributions helped spawn characters like Ahsoka, Captain Rex, and Omega. Information that he’s sitting on plans to shine off the Mandoverse with a big-screen launch despatched a bolt of electrical energy by way of the fandom, a few of whom have discovered Mando’s most up-to-date season a bit lukewarm.
This gained’t be simply any Mando-themed theatrical launch, both. In line with a tweet from @DiscussingFilm, Filoni’s flick is meant to culminate the occasions of the Mandoverse. That doubtless means Filoni’s movie will function the conclusion to the Mandoverse saga earlier than the expansive Star Wars universe units its sights on a brand new goal.
Reactions to the information veer between pleasure and trepidation. Filoni has created among the greatest supplemental Star Wars materials on the market, however for these unfamiliar together with his work in animation, his monitor report is rocky. Reside-action unique audiences have solely actually loved Filoni’s work on The Mandalorian and The Guide of Boba Fett, the latter of which was largely seen as a disappointment, leaving some with little religion in Filoni’s skills. Those that fell in love with the characters of Ahsoka, Ezra, or Chopper (who doesn’t love Chopper?), nevertheless, are of a distinct mindset and are absolutely celebrating a Filoni-led movie.
Just a few complaints additionally name out the truth that, in keeping with the announcement, it appears The Mandalorian — a tv present — will conclude with a movie, reasonably than on the present itself. This isn’t assured — the announcement doesn’t say a end result of The Mandalorian, however of the Mandoverse — however some are taking it as truth, and so they take difficulty with the concept that a few of The Mandalorian‘s most important moments don’t even happen throughout the present itself. The present’s tendency to let a few of its motion occur in sister sequence is basic comedian books — with out that difficulty of Winter Soldier, you’ll by no means perceive Black Widow’s upcoming arc — however not everyone seems to be a fan. Complaints about Grogu’s return — which was coated in The Guide of Boba Fett reasonably than The Mandalorian — nonetheless abound, and folks aren’t on the lookout for yet one more story to happen exterior of the present itself.
Nonetheless, the movie is assured to ultimately make its strategy to Disney Plus, so it’s not like it will likely be tough to search out. And people with religion in Filoni couldn’t be extra excited, littering the feedback part with proclamations of Filoni’s broad expertise. These with much less love for the Star Wars staple would possibly even come round — by the point his huge movie involves fruition — simply in time to see the last word climax of Filoni’s first main live-action venture.
