Report: Jon Favreau Signed "Insane" Contract With Lucasfilm

Posted by Ryan on February 28, 2022 at 09:16 AM CST

It has been no secret that Disney has been pleased with the results of their venture into streaming with Star Wars on Disney+ following the success of season one of The Mandalorian. With many new shows announced and some even debuting this year like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, and The Bad Batch season 2, it is clear that the (at least near) future of the franchise resides on the streaming platform.

According to a report from Puck, Jon Favreau was able to secure a nice contract in the wake of creating the series that set them on this path:

"Sure, there are exceptions. Favreau originally signed on to do just one season of The Mandalorian, so when it became Disney+'s signature series, he extracted an insane deal to continue, with all kinds of bonuses and incentives for writing or directing individual episodes. But I'm betting even Favreau doesn't get a cut of the show's merchandise revenue, meaning Disney likely doesn't share the windfall from my kid's many Baby Yoda T-shirts and PJs with the guy who, along with Filoni, actually created the character."

Favreau was a producer/writer for The Book of Boba Fett, as well as The Mandalorian, and is likely to be on the production team alongside Dave Filoni on Ahsoka. There is also a rumor from DiscussingFilm that he will serve as a producer on an upcoming mystery series that will film this summer in the Star Wars universe.

It is no suprise Lucasfilm and Favreau would want to continue their partnership, and fans will likely reap the rewards of this contract as he continues to produce content for Disney+.
