While everyone is excited for the release of Star Wars Episode IX next year, we also have Jon Favreau’s Star Wars: The Mandalorian to look forward to. Bad news is, the set has just gone through a robbery, and a police investigation has been brought up to recover the stolen goods.
As per The Blast, what was stolen came from the camera department, and among the items was a memory card containing sensitive information. The production was taking place at Manhattan Beach at the time, and it’s speculated that the equipment was stolen at night when it was dark.
Lucasfilm and the police have launched their own investigations within the set, and the main people who have been grilled have been members of the camera crew.
No news has been said about the film being delayed at some point, but if the memory card were to contain some footage, then I guess they would have to reshoot if the files weren’t backed up. Either way, we could be looking at a massive leak at some point in the future. Personally, I’d prefer to wait for the official footage released by Lucasfilm. I wouldn’t want to spoil myself with the series just to get an earlier look.
As of now, we know very little about The Mandalorian, only that it focuses on a character that wears the same type of armor as Boba and Jango Fett. The series is also set after Return of the Jedi, and it’s been confirmed that stormtroopers are still pretty commonplace in this timeline.
Catch Star Wars: The Mandalorian when it airs sometime next year.
