The Mandalorian Season 2 officially streams today on Disney+! We couldn’t help the excitement as we finally get answers to some questions unsolved in the previous season. If you are a bit hazy on what happened in season 1, worry no more. We will fill you in as we share with you some questions we would want answers to this upcoming season.
The Mandalorian Season 1 Recap
The series opens with Mando tasked to deliver a bounty to the ominous former Empire official, The Client. When it turns out to be a child with mystical powers, aka Baby Yoda, Mando’s protective instincts kicked in. He was orphaned at a young age too. Hence, it led him to risk his own life to protect The Child from destructive powers.
In order to secure their freedom, Mando agrees with Greef Karga’s proposition to take out The Client for good. However, a former high-ranking official called Moff Gideon has the place surrounded by stormtroopers. Kuiil is then killed by stormtroopers and IG-11 sacrifices himself to save the remaining team. On the other hand, Mando, Cara, Greef and Baby Yoda get to escape in the end.
Questions we want answers from The Mandalorian season 2
Moff Gideon’s backstory
We learned in season 1 that Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) served as an officer in the Imperial Security Bureau. In addition, he wants The Child for some wicked purpose. Apart from those, we know nothing such as how he acquired the esteemed Darksaber. Does he have Force powers and how vast is his empire exactly?
To whom does the mysterious boots belong to
On Tattooine, a dark figure in boots approached the lifeless body of fugitive assassin Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen). Speculations say Boba Fett owns the boots given how those spurs reminded his scene from The Empire Strikes Back. If that is really Boba, how then did he survive the Sarlacc Pit?
The Child questions
Remaining as the main mystery of the show, many are eager to know about Baby Yoda’s identity. Where is he from? Can he talk? Are there more of his species? More importantly, what does Gideon want him for?
Din Djarin also carried mysteriousness along with his character. One of which we want to know was what exactly the Great Purge is? How is it related to The Mandalorian’s sacred rule of never removing their helmet? Will he be able to take it off again in season 2 though?
