The Mandalorian season two is as inescapable as Darth Vader cosplayers in a Star Wars convention. It is going to appear wheezing behind you, although you can run out of it.
If you’ve been following the storyline of this show through the gifs which have been spreading through media such as the Empire throughout the galaxy, you may be intrigued to determine the show successfully, a second-year has been declared.
For fans who’ve missed the type of nostalgic reverence for the original trilogy that’s been left behind by films like The Last Jedi, a second series will be as pleasant an arrival onto Disney+ as a basket containing a Baby Yoda into the ship of a Mandalorian.
Though those fans may be less happy to hear that Rian Johnson wants to direct an episode of the flagship Star Wars series. But more importantly at an instant.
For now, we’re shoving on an iconic helmet, catching the closest green infant, and taking to the skies to find out exactly what to expect from The Mandalorian season two. Here.
The Mandalorian season 2 Cast
Pedro Pascal will be back, not that you’re going to be able to tell (unless he loses his helmet in a daring second season twist).
He’ll most likely be joined by Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Werner Herzog, and Nick Nolte.
Oh, and Carl Weathers is directing a season-two episode, though we’re not sure if that means that his bounty hunter Greef Carga is going to return, or when Weathers will probably be too busy calling the shots behind the camera to create the shots in front of it. Time will tell.
Sci-fi legend Michael Biehn is heading into The Mandalorian in year two as well. By Creating Star Wars, The Terminator and Alien’s favorite is linking this galaxy far, far away as a bounty hunter out of Mando’s previous.
It has been some time since Biehn has looked in a mainstream property like this, so old-school activity fans will be especially excited to see his reunite.
Biehn will also be linked with yet another new face, Zombieland: Dual Tap’s Rosario Dawson. She will almost certainly seem as Ahsoka Tano, a fan-favorite character who first introduced during the animated series Clone Wars.
Dawson has campaigned with this job a lot through time, so she will bring a lot of knowledge and expertise to The Mandalorian when she joins in season two.
Showrunner Jon Favreau may also take charge of an episode. “We’re working on season two, writing, prepping with all the directors and getting ready to direct me, really,” Favreau informed Entertainment Weekly. “I didn’t get an opportunity the last time around because I had been doing Lion King. So I will step in for one of them.”
Again, we’re not sure who is stepping outside to Favreau, but we hope the name directors — like Taika Waititi and Bryce Dallas Howard — will also return.
For being part of this show, Rian Johnson can be up. “When I had the time, I would get in there in a heartbeat. I had a set visit for season one and it looked amazing. It seemed like so much fun!” (via Yahoo)
We’d love to see that his take on this entire world, especially considering how good his Breaking Bad perform was, and just how much we loved Knives Out.
The Mandalorian season 2 Plot
Loads of plot threads could be left unresolved after year one (which is still broadcasting at the time of writing), including the identification of his client’ and notably Baby Yoda’s backstory future.
Remember, we’re only calling him (her?) Baby Yoda because we have no other frame of reference — the species of Yoda is unnamed in the first canon, thus we know almost nothing about the child’s identity. It is going to be a fascinating element to research seasons, not only one and two over.
Exactly how successful is your child? Who are its parents? And what is destiny? We anticipate these mysteries all to at least be touched upon since the series’ narrative unfolds further in season two.
And there is the Mandalorians themselves — there’s a rich history to explore there, especially if our titular hero encounters the iconic bounty hunter Boba Fett. Favreau said he wouldn’t take a look in season one, but that does not mean that he won’t appear next year in season two.
Yes, we know Fett’s dead from the films, but Dave Filoni’s Clone Wars show proves that death in the movies does not necessarily rule out an appearance on telly — oh, hai Darth Maul.
