Many people were surprised by the Disney Plus release of The Mandalorian at the launch of Disney Plus last year. Baby Yoda and “it is the way” entered the lexicon and has been forever embedded in it. As the new season was slated for release in late October, Disney Plus released The Mandalorian season two trailer.
In case you don’t remember where things left off after The Mandalorian’s first season, here’s a quick refresher: Mando and Baby Yoda (aka The Child) narrowly escaped the pursuit of Imperial Agent Moff Gideon. Thanks to some help from Cara Dune, Greef Karga, and a bounty droid called IG-11. But while Moff Gideon was momentary thwarted, he was revealed to be in possession of the Darksaber. And likely to still be on the trail of the bounty hunter.
Even after this short preview, The Mandalorian season 2’s plot details are still a bit of a mystery. But one thing we do know about season two are some of the characters and actors that are likely to appear. Rosario Dawson reportedly joins the show’s cast as fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano. Star Wars prequel actor Temuera Morrison is also in the mix. Morrison played Boba’s clone-father Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. While unconfirmed, his role is expected to be some form of a reprisal.
In the trailer we saw a glimpse of Tatooine and a chase with a couple of X-Wings. The scene stealing moment was Baby Yoda locking himself in his floating crib. Noticing that Mando was going to get real for a moment. The Mandalorian season two trailer will be watched repeatedly until the release of the series.
Oh, and a message to you fanboys – it will be released on a weekly basis. Just like the first season. So… relax.
The Mandalorian season 2 arrives to Disney Plus on Oct. 30.
