It looks like John Favreau and Dave Filoni’s corner of the Star Wars universe is going to continue to grow with rumours of another new series gearing up for production.
Production Weekly are reporting that the pair are executive producers on an upcoming project going by the working title ‘Ghost Track 17’. While there is no solid information on what this could be, it is possible that something is in the works as ‘The Mandalorian’ team have been successful at keeping the majority of their secrets. ‘The Book Of Boba Fett’ and ‘Skeleton Crew’ both went into production without becoming common knowledge.
As to what this series could be is anyone’s guess. Star Wars News Net suggest it could simply be a fourth season of ‘The Mandalorian’ where as Bespin Bulletin link the working title to a hidden or ‘ghost’ track 17 on The Beatles ‘Abbey Road’ which was ‘Her Majesty’ impling the series may have a royal connection.
The use of the word ‘ghost’ instantly brings to mind ‘Star Wars Rebels’ where the main characters where the crew of The Ghost. With the ‘Rebels’ characters’ being introduced in ‘Ahsoka’ this could be a continuation of that series.
Favreau and Filoni’s style of storytelling is very loose and open ended and they have left plenty of dangling plot threads throughout the two seasons of ‘The Mandalorian’ and one of ‘The Book Of Boba Fett’. This new series could be as small as a Cobb Vanth story or as large as a Luke Skywalker epic. There also might be a connection to the third season of ‘The Mandalorian’ which begins in March.
If the rumours are true then expect some sort of announcement at Star Wars Celebration in early April similar to how we found out about ‘Skeleton Crew’ last year.
