In 2012, Disney acquired Lucasfilm for nearly $4.05 billion. However, since then George Lucas has been aware of the new projects that have emerged from the universe of StarWars.
Although the filmmaker has had good impressions regarding some works, it is known that two films, The Force Awakens Y The Rise of Skywalkerthey have not left him completely satisfied.
Now, many expected to know the director’s opinion on the new series released by Disney, especially The Mandalorianthe most successful, along with one of the most beloved characters by fans: Baby Yoda.
In the book published this year Star Wars: The Art of The Mandalorian (Season Two), From Phil Szostak, Jon Favreau, director of the Disney series, reveals that Lucas was worried about the little character who accompanied Mando on his adventures.
“I had a conversation with George, at one point, about Baby Yoda, and his main concern was that he should have an adequate amount of training,” the book states.
According to Favreau, the experienced filmmaker liked the idea of Grogu gradually learning to use the Force, especially considering that the “boy” was very sensitive to it.
Now that we know how the Baby Yoda plot unfolded in The Mandalorian Y The Book of Boba Fett —particularly his relationship with the Force—we think Lucas can be comfortable with the choices Jon Favreau made.
It should be remembered that the third season of The Mandalorian It could arrive at the end of this year on the Disney Plus platform.
