With this afternoons image reveals came plenty of information from the set of the second season of The Mandalorian, and some fascinating – and very, very welcome news – that George Lucas was once again present for some of the filming, and Jon Favreau explained just what kind of mood Lucas was in when he visited while his padawan Dave Filoni was busy directing.
One major visitor to the season 2 set was Lucas himself, who stopped by to watch some filming while Filoni was directing. Actors who worked with the Star Wars creator on the original trilogy have famously said Lucas’ most common direction to his actors was go “faster” and “more intense.” Even after 40 years, some things have not changed. “He would be giving Dave a hard time about how many setups he was getting and how fast he was shooting and urging him to go faster,” Favreau says. “He was like a boxer’s corner man coaching him, but always with a twinkle in his eye.”
