    The Mandalorian might be new ground for Star Wars, being its first live-action streaming series for Disney+, but that doesn't mean it won't be rich with ties to the history of the franchise. In another nugget from his conversation with Entertainment Weekly, the writer/producer briefly talks about the opportunities the series presents when it comes to bridging different eras and elements of Star Wars.

    Let me start by saying, I don't read too much into the following quote and I think it will inadvertently create more wild speculation than it needs to, but nonetheless, when Jon Favreau speaks Star Wars, we're going to cover it as best we can. EW asked Favreau if characters like Thrawn or a Legends character like Mara Jade could find their way into The Mandalorian, and Favreau gave the most professional and smart answer possible.

    I personally think this is simply Favreau being a smart producer, and casting a wide net to garner interest in the series from the largest demographic possible. Now, having said that, this does offer plenty of interesting possibilities. I am sure we'll see many Easter eggs from Lucasfilm animation (especially with Filoni's involvement), the prequels, and of course the original trilogy and sequel trilogy (which the show takes place between), throughout the series. Beyond Easter eggs, the question remains, how much will we see from other eras (including nods to Legends)?

    The good news is, we don't have to wait long. The Mandalorian debuts on Disney+ two months from tomorrow on November 12. Regardless of how much or how little Favreau incorporates from the history of Star Wars, all indications are that we are in for something truly special.
