If you came to find the latest about the Star Wars’ spinoff, The Mandalorian, well, this is the way.
Disney+ recently released its first trailer and a range of character posters for the second season, just a few weeks from its premiere.
The trailer follows the main character Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) engaged in a conversation from an unknown voice over. She orders him to take charge of The Child (aka Baby Yoda) saying, “You must reunite it with its own kind.”
From there then follows Mando’s search for Baby Yoda’s species and reuniting them – not without adversity though.
The trailer also features brief glimpses of action, including a funny scene where The Child reacts from an encounter with aliens. Quick look at side characters Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) from season one was also served. It also briefly mentioned some deep Star Wars universe lore involving the longstanding rivalry between Mandalorians and the galactic protectors, the Jedi.
The Mandalorian Season 2 Plot and Release Date
Little has been said about the plot except that it revolves around Mandalorian’s quest for truth about The Child’s origins. On the good side, it is surely packed with many epic action scenes and new characters as teased by lead actor Pedro Pascal.
“There are some pretty mind-blowing things. We start very directly after the first season and he’s going into very dangerous territory,” Pascal says.
“He is very much a passenger to the experience in unexpected ways — not knowing what’s to come, not knowing how much or how best to protect the Child. We don’t know how far he will go to do that, and they’re finding new ways to push the envelope.”
Season 2 might also reveal to us finally the real name of Baby Yoda. In a tweet by actor Kyle Buchanan, he said that director Taika Waititi insisted, “He’s not named Baby Yoda!” We will have to wait then for the creators to give that away for us.
The Mandalorian season 2 will be available for streaming starting October 30 on Disney+. It will follow a weekly release of episodes both in the US and the UK.
