George Lucas Urged Dave Filoni to ‘Go Faster’ On ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2

It seems only fitting that a Star Wars icon in the form of George Lucas is still keeping a close eye on a successful property like The Mandalorian. Jon Favreau’s amusing story of how Lucas urged The Mandalorian director and Star Wars: The Clone Wars creator Dave Filoni in a multitude of ways while on set goes to show that the franchise’s creator still has an immense passion with the inner workings behind the Star Wars universe.

NEWS:

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly ahead of the release of The Mandalorian season 2, showrunner Jon Favreau shared that Star Wars creator George Lucas visited the set of the Disney+ show.
Favreau bared that Lucas “would be giving [The Mandalorian director] Dave [Filoni] a hard time” regarding the number of setups on set while also “urging him to go faster” when it came to shooting some scenes:

“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. He was like a boxer’s corner man coaching him, but always with a twinkle in his eye.”
