Rian Johnson’s Star Wars resume is polarizing, but he’d be willing to give it another go by directing an episode of The Mandalorian. Johnson, who directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the currently-in-theaters Knives Out, spoke with CinemaBlend for a new interview and during it was asked if he would be interested in helming a future episode of the hit Disney+ series.

“Hell yeah!,” Johnson replied. “Man, if I had the time, I would get in there in a heartbeat. I had a set visit for Season 1 and it looked amazing. It looked like so much fun!”

The Mandalorian is set to go for a second season, with no directors yet set for the episodes. The first season is currently on Disney+.
