"For generations, my ancestors fought proudly as warriors against the Jedi. Now, that woman tarnishes the very name Mandalorian. Defend her, if you will."
―Jon as Pre Vizsla — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

Jon Favreau (born October 19, 1966) is an American actor and director who provided the voice of the Mandalorian Pre Vizsla in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. A long time Star Wars fan, his appearance in The Clone Wars was due to when he ran into Dave Filoni at ILM and Skywalker Sound while Favreau was working on post-production for Iron Man.

Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard revealed that Favreau has a voice role in the upcoming film, as a "very cool & important" alien character.[1] Favreau later revealed an image of his character on Twitter, depicting him as a diminutive four-armed alien,[2] Rio Durant.[1]

On March 8th, 2018, it was revealed that Favreau would write and executive produce the upcoming live-action Star Wars television series.[3] On May 10th, 2018, in an interview with Anthony Carboni on the premier for Solo: A Star Wars Story, Favreau revealed that he was halfway done with writing a season of the upcoming live-action Star Wars television series.[4]
