Rian Johnson Wants to Direct Season 2 Episode of The Mandalorian

Rian Jonhson’s latest film Knives Out is doing well and Star Wars fever is rising with the release of The Mandalorian and The Rise of Skywalker just around the corner. When Johnson was asked if he would like to direct an episode of The Mandalorian he answered positively.

The filmmaker was asked on a CinemaBlend podcast about having a chance to be behind the camera in the next season. Like most directors, Johnson would be all for another trip to the galaxy far, far away. But, it remains to see if that would happen. The filmmaker has a number of projects lined up, like Knives Out was. It will ultimately come down to the question of what the schedule will allow. For it’s part, The Mandalorian has been nothing short of a smash for Disney+ in the early days of the service. Season 2 will probably be one of the most anticipated titles on the platform whenever it rolls around.

The director answered, “H*** Yeah! Man, if I had the time, I would get in there in a heartbeat. I had a set visit for Season 1 and it looked amazing. It looked like so much fun!”
