Jon Favreau Drops Another MANDALORIAN Instagram Hint

Star Wars fans may recognize a familiar droid in another MANDALORIAN hint.

Jon Favreau continues to lead the way on the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian, and recently he gifted fans with a little teaser. The filmmaker posted a picture of R5-D4 on his Instagram — a droid that, in a way, played a short but pivotal role in A New Hope.

When being sold by Jawas, R5-D4, or “Red,” had a motivator malfunction that resulted in Luke Skywalker and Owen Lars bringing home R2-D2 instead.

Speaking of motivators… if you’re looking for a laugh, check out the comments on Favreau’s post. The Star Wars puns are out of this world. And if you want to read more about R5, check out the book A Certain Point of View

Keep your eyes on Jon Favreau’s Instagram for future hints!
