The Mandalorian Creator Says Show Is Not Connected to Star Wars: Skeleton Crew

It’s a creative endeavor for long-term franchises to maximize foreshadowing in their narratives. Given the numerous installments that they have been releasing, it’s normal for one story to build up or tie into the narrative that one of their upcoming projects will be leaning toward. The Mandalorian Season 3 is one of the first Star Wars offerings that will kick off this year. With the franchise’s slate of titles that will be released this year, like one of the most anticipated ones, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, fans are hoping that the third season of The Mandalorian will launch the story or characters of Skeleton Crew, but Jon Favreau responded to their queries.

According to Variety's new report, Skeleton Crew characters will not be introduced in The Mandalorian Season 3, detailing: “Jude Law stars in the series, which is a [Steven] Spielberg-esque coming-of-age story set in the same Mandalorian era. Skeleton Crew is scheduled to air this year, but unlike Boba Fett and Ahsoka, the characters will not first appear in The Mandalorian.”

Favreau said before that the series will have direct ties into The Mandalorian season 4, which is already written, but it’s fair because this season is just the third, so fans can’t expect what happened with Ahsoka, which got a backdoor pilot in season 2, will be similar in this situation.

“Each storyteller brings their personality to it. The groups that are working on [Skeleton Crew] are led by Jon Watts, whom I collaborated with on all the Spider-Man movies. This has been a real fun time and the great filmmakers that he’s engaged with have been bringing their perspectives as well.” explained Favreau.

The Mandalorian, Star Wars: Ahsoka, Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, and Star Wars: Skeleton Crew might have taken place at the same time, giving room for possible crossovers, but like Andor, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is leaning on exploring to do something more different than the standard world of Star Wars.

The Mandalorian Season 3 will premiere on Disney+ on March 1st, while Star Wars: Skeleton Crew has yet to receive its exact release date.
