Jon Favreau, who is the captain of The Mandalorian ship, talks about Weathers was signed on to direct parts of the new series.

"“We roped him in. It started off with, ‘Hey, maybe you’ll do a few episodes.’ And then it turned into, ‘You know, we really like your character…’ We worked him into the show a lot more than he agreed to do. And now, in season two, he’ll be directing for us. By Carl being on this high-tech innovative set that we’ve developed for these specific stories, he’s seen how we have put this together. He’s seen us experimenting with it and he’s seen it all come together, so he is perfectly qualified. He understands the story. He understands the characters, as well as the cast and the technology. It’s really fun to be working with Carl.”" - Jon Favreau
