Jon Favreau Delivers A Cryptic Answer To If Thrawn, Mara Jade Will Be In 'The Mandalorian'

We’ve all been dying to know more about Disney+’s ‘The Mandalorian‘ and showrunner Jon Favreau is being as evasive as ever! In the latest round of questions, his vague answers almost lead you to believe that we’ll be seeing an appearance of a pretty well-known character from either the cartoons or novels. We’ve already recently heard a tease from Dave Filoni that one of his animated characters could make it to the big screen in the series and the answers Favreau delivers seems to hint at the same thing.

Favreau was specifically asked if we could see Grand Admiral Thrawn or Mara Jade appear in the series:

“I don’t want to talk about anything that might be fun for people to discover. We do have conversations. Part of what’s fun to see if we could merge the worlds of the original trilogy, the prequels, the sequels, The Clones Wars, and what’s been considered canon up to this point and what’s been considered part of Legends. I think this show offers an opportunity to bring in all those elements so no matter what your flavor of Star Wars ice cream you like there will be something to enjoy. But you’re asking the right questions.”

Filoni’s previous comment about seeing a character live in front of him could indicate Thrawn or any number of others popping up. As to the Mara Jade suggestion? We know that Ming-Na Wen has been cast in a mystery role for the series and when the showrunner was asked if she’ll be playing a familiar face he let on that “We take full advantage of her acting and her action ability.”
