While a vocal group of fans did not like how The Rise of Skywalker concluded when it was released in 2019, nothing has been done about it just yet. The Star Wars mythos has since been expanded exponentially in Disney Plus show The Mandalorian, which most recently brought Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) into the fold. However, a new report claims the sequel trilogy is going to be changed and even “patched” in the upcoming third season of The Mandalorian.
Disney and Star Wars leaker Mike Zeroh has released a video claiming that Favreau is working on rectifying the “issues” found in TROS.
It is important to note that Zeroh has not always been correct with his reports or predictions, so this information should be taken with a large grain of salt.
With that said, Zeroh claims that Favreau recently spoke out in an interview about the future of the Star Wars films.
The YouTuber reports Favreau saying: “What you can expect in future Mandalorian seasons are, especially, multiple storylines and plot points that are going to be used to change your perspective on the entire story of the sequels.”

Favreau went on: “I know some fans don’t want the sequels to be referenced in these shows, however, our attempt is to improve how the fandom sees the sequel trilogies.
“And you can view future Mandalorian seasons – and The Book of Boba Fett – as tools, in a sense, to sharpen the sequel movies that have gotten a bad reception. And that’s what we are trying to improve.”
Going on to tease how any changes in the series will be made, Zeroh claimed Favreau said: “A lot of that will be done through powerful ways of the Force that will be surprising to fans.
“To improve the future of this beautiful franchise … we will be providing some patchwork.”
Zeroh said Brie Larson would be playing a brand new character called Maeve.
Maeve’s story would be set long after The Rise of Skywalker and will supposedly focus on her extraordinary Force powers.
He also added that this would be set in an alternate timeline, so some events of TROS would not have happened.
According to the leaker, Maeve will have even more power than Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader combined.
Zeroh went on to reveal: “[The series] will also involve a brand new enemy from a brand new galaxy. Maeve’s new power is what the new enemy seeks.
“Maeve is set to be connected to the Whills who are godlike beings who help her discover this new power.
“Maeve is also set to have different levels of her own power which will evolve and be explored in the series.”
The Star Wars series is available on Disney Plus now.
