    Am I excited for The Mandalorian? You bet. Am I alone? Not at all.

    300 credits says Favreau and Filoni will roll the success of this show into future live-action feature films* for the Star Wars franchise; possibly even taking over the Benioff & Weiss trilogy that has since been vacated.

    DON'T YOU AGREE?

    * EDIT: 4 year time limit. Filoni and Favreau must have live-action films announced by November 2023.

    Favreau will direct Fiege's project and Filoni will direct a Johnson trilogy movie. 300 credits that they will get one. @DarthSnow

    Someone has to do it...
    @DarthSnow 300¢ that they won't get any Star Wars feature films (ever?)

    Oops accidentally transferred 500¢ to @Wuher

    Yeah, I can get behind this... Favreau was the director of the first MCU film, so he and Feige have history.

    300 says I’m in too (a-wing)

    Would this bet work if we set a time limit? Like... if Filoni and Favreau get a movie deal until 2023 (4 years from now basically).

    I'm okay with that. My original intent was that this would be a direct result of the Mando's success, so logically speaking a decision based off of that would have to come sooner rather than later. But probably a good thing to set a deadline, lest 80 some years from now we all be cursing me on our deathbeds for a hanging bet like this....
    :cool:

    @Andrew Waples @Lazarus Dei @Meister Yoda @Anubis78 does setting a 4 year time limit change anything for you? We could even bump it down to: as long as there is an announcement within 2 years. Everyone weigh in please!

    Also I should specify that while I think they will work on one together, as long as they both get separate deals like Waples mentioned that will qualify as a win too.

    Ok I’m definitely in as I was thinking that they would be involved in 2 separate projects.
    So 300 Credits Favareau & Filoni will be involved in future SW projects.
    @DarthSnow
    & 4 years sounds fine as I believe that was also the time frame for a SOLO sequel

    I'd be inclined to say yes to the proposed bet, and my first thought was that Filoni already had a feature film...but not live-action.

    I'd bet, but I fear that this bet might be open for (potentially) a very long time before we hear anything...and I'm old...and I might be dead before the bet pays out, so I'll decline!! :D:D:D

    No one's ever truly gone, @Trevor.

    Especially in the Cantina.

    I don't gamble, but I'd wager Filoni is more likely to get his own series rather than a movie.
    Favreau is different because he's an incredibly successful film maker already.

    I’m cool with a time limit.

    With B&W off and away and RJ stuck in dev mode, I reckon there’ll be news in the new year about a new film - even if there’s a couple of years hiatus until it appears

    I would bet on this as well. Time limit and all. As a matter of fact I'd be totally shocked if they aren't given a film. Especially with the success (so far at least) of The Mandalorian.
