Disney just released another look at The Mandalorian season 2, a.k.a. the continued adventures of a Star Wars bounty hunter (Pedro Pascal) and his little green buddy, not-officially-named Baby Yoda. This is definitely, as they say, the way.
Co-created by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, The Mandalorian debuted on Disney+ back in November of 2019, the first live-action Star Wars TV series, ever. Along with Pascal, the show stars Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, and Gina Carano. Favreau is reportedly writing six of Season 2’s eight episodes, with Filoni and Season 1 director Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) taking one apiece.
This new footage expands upon what we’ve seen already in the lead-up to Season 2, including the Razor Crest having a whee bit of an ooopsie, skidding down onto the surface of an ice planet. There’s also Cara Dune (Carano) and Greef Karga (Weathers) reuniting with Mando as he confirms his new quest — finding a way to return The Child Baby Yoda to “its kind.” Who else might be able to help him in his quest? Sounds like the answer might be other Mandalorians, but if that fails, he’s still got his trusty jet pack as a backup.
Here is the official synopsis for The Mandalorian Season 2:
The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire. “The Mandalorian” stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. Directors for the new season include Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed and Robert Rodriguez. Showrunner Jon Favreau serves as executive producer along with Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson, with Karen Gilchrist serving as co-executive producer.
