If you're disappointed that you won't be getting the cute soup-sipper for the holidays, just remind yourself that it's all for the good of your watching enjoyment! The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau told Entertainment Tonight that toy production was delayed in order to prevent spoilers from leaking. "We really wanted to have it be that you had to watch it yourself so that every time you watched the show there'd be new twists and secrets coming out. But that requires a lot of restraint from the people footing the bill. Part of that was holding back on things like merchandise," he explained.
