Jon Favreau Confirms IG-88 Will Appear In 'The Mandalorian'

By: Dominic Jones

Jon Favreau, writer and executive producer of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, had a little Christmas surprise up his sleeve this week, confirming on his Instagram that bounty hunter IG-88 will be appearing on the series.  Favreau posted a picture of IG-88 from the set with the caption "Merry Christmas".  IG-88 first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back, in the scene where Darth Vader hires the bounty hunters to track down The Millennium Falcon.

Favreau's announcement comes just a week after it was first reported that IG-88 would be appearing on the show, and that a IG-88 prop had been spotted on set.  This was first reported by MakingStarWars.net.

Now we can't help but ask, what other bounty hunters might make appearances on The Mandalorian?

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) in the titular role, alongside Gina Carano (Deadpool), Nick Nolte (Affliction), Carl Weathers (Predator), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), and Omid Abtahi (American Gods). The series' first season is written by executive producer Jon Favreau and will debut on Disney+ next year
