The Mandalorian Creators Address Potential George Lucas Cameo

It goes without saying that The Mandalorian has featured some of the best cameo appearances in all of Star Wars and it has somewhat become a tradition to include fan-favorite characters from the lore. Now, if you'd ask creator Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni which cameo they'd like to see in the hit series, one familiar name comes to mind.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the dynamic duo addressed the possibility of Star Wars creator George Lucas appearing in the MandoVerse and according to Favreau, "that would be the best cameo."

Filoni, on the other hand, says that should Lucas end up making a monumental cameo appearance in the show, it should be for a role that fits his status. Admittedly, however, the idea is too wild for him to even think about.

He said: "I don’t know… He’d have to be the son of Baron Papanoida or something like that. I don’t know. I wouldn’t even speculate on that. It’s hard for me to imagine what that day would be like."

Since Disney's game-changing acquisition of Lucasfilm a decade ago, George hasn't been involved in any of the franchise's projects and he most certainly isn't part of The Mandalorian's creative process as well. However, you can't deny that a cameo appearance from the Star Wars patriarch would be nothing short of awesome, and much like Favreau and Filoni, we're also hoping that it will happen down the line.

The Mandalorian Season 3 is currently scheduled for release in February 2023 only on Disney+.
