Jon Favreau Wants ‘The Mandalorian’ Razor Crest Ride at Disney Parks

“Dank Farrik!” It seems that if Jon Favreau, creator of “The Mandalorian”, had his way, Din Djarin’s ship would make a crash landing in a Disney Park. In a recent interview with IMDb, Favreau shared that the Razor Crest could be the perfect attraction for bringing “The Mandalorian” to Disney guests.

In an interview clip shared by IMDb, Favreau was asked if he thought about what a potential ride for “The Mandalorian” might look like. Judging by his response, it appears that he has given it a great deal of thought.


That’s a huge yes on rides that make you feel sick. 🙏 #mandalorian #disneyworld #jonfavreau #kateesackhoff #imdb

Favreau said that his ideal attraction would “probably be in the Razor Crest.” The creator expanded on his plans for using Mando’s vessel, explaining that he sees an opportunity for using the show’s special effects for an experience that blends a behind-the-scenes feel with an energetic ride.

“I know when I was younger, I loved when they pulled the curtain back on the effects of the movies,” explained Favreau. “It really made me probably want to do what I’m doing now, so I think that there should be an educational component, but not educational like a museum reading a plaque — educational, like, sitting here; feel this; and here’s how we did it.”

He went on to say that he would probably “do something immersive,” developing advanced haptics as part of the attraction. He said he would even like to use the assets that they use in “The Volume.” “The Volume” is a cutting-edge filmmaking technology developed by ILM that replaces the traditional greenscreen with a more authentic and immersive backdrop. The Volume has been utilized in the productions of “The Mandalorian,” “The Book of Boba Fett,” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi.”

“It uses a massive, curved LED screen to create photorealistic backdrops, circumventing the need for outdoor locations or extensive physical sets,” writes Gavia Baker-Whitelaw, in the DailyDot. “As the camera moves within the Volume, the perspective and light sources shift to encourage the sensation of exploring a real environment.”

Katee Sackhoff, the actress who portrays Bo-Katan Kryze in the Disney+ series, also weighed in on what would make for the best ride to showcase “The Mandalorian”. Sackhoff proposed a new concept, which may seem far-fetched, especially for Disneyland. She suggested replacing the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission BREAKOUT! attraction with a “Star Wars” ride. According to her, this would be “awesome” since the current ride is already one of her favorites.

She also presented another idea for a ride, which was more in line with Favreau’s concept. Since she has been flying a ship in the series, she suggested that a ride should be created based on a scene in which she is seen flying.

Recently, The Mandalorian and Grogu have been making appearances in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney has stated that the two will continue to make regular appearances in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, just like other characters, and are not a limited-time offering. There have been no announcements yet regarding any sort of attraction to showcase “The Mandalorian” but we remain hopeful, especially after Josh D’Amaro’s recent comments citing TRON Lightcycle / Run as just the “tip of the iceberg” for new Disney Parks attractions.

According to a panel at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim last summer, new destinations will soon be added to Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. No details were shared on the content of the new scenes or where they may take inspiration from, perhaps providing the perfect opportunity for an immersive “The Mandalorian” experience. Star Tours: The Adventures Continue is currently installed at Disneyland, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris.

Season three of “The Mandalorian” is now streaming on Disney+. Check out our full deep dive into everything you should know about “The Mandalorian” before tuning in.
