Favreau further continued to telt, ” To have the partnership of Katee Sackhoff, I had performed as a voice actor alongside Bo-Katan as Pre Vizsla, so that was fun to see myself on screen with her. I never really got to know her, I knew her as Starbuck from the Battlestar days. What would happen is as I would start to write storylines and I would talk to Dave (Filoni) and say, ‘Hey, is this a character that you think might fit in because it’s The Mandalorian and she’s one of the most famous Mandalorians in canon?’ The collaboration with these existing characters was the first challenging part of the writing for me because I was dealing with all all-new characters“.

Season 3 might poss that Bo-Katan the now revealed antagonist, and Din Djarin resolute their differences. “Having those two characters weave together, I think, really caught people in an unexpected way. Two sets of Mandalorians that actu very different co-existing in the same world, so, now as we go into the next season, we start to realore what that means and how those characters might see eye to eye or maybe not get along at all“, expresses Favreau.
