The Mandalorian season 1 received rave reviews from the critics and the fans alike. Back in 2019, it was speculated if the series is successful then there are chances that we might get to see the same characters featuring in future Star Wars movies. Jon Favreau said back then that there's definitely the opportunity to explore the characters beyond what has been presented in the show.
