Perhaps you’ll recall THIS scene from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back when Cloud City is evacuating and a gentleman goes running buy with a freaking ice cream maker:

This scene of course is the basis for the Running of the Willrow Hoods which takes place at various conventions, including Star Wars Celebration.

Favreau is showrunning the first of the live-action Star Wars series Disney is doing for their new streaming service, and maybe this deepcut tease means we’ll get a glimpse of Willrow Hood in The Mandalorian.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
