Star Wars fans get excited! We won’t need to wait that long for The Mandalorian’s second season as per Disney Chief Operating Officer Bob Iger during Disney’s quarterly earnings meeting that season two will be premiering on Disney+ this coming October.
Disney+ debuted with its first-ever flagship Star Wars television series with great success because not only was it a really good television series but having an obscenely adorable mascot of sorts in baby Yoda helped them boost their stock just after they launched their streaming service. Star Wars has always had a mascot of sorts in most of their media and they struck gold with baby Yoda with the little green nugget of cuteness has captivated the audiences across the world, with most, if not all people wanting legit baby Yoda merchandise from figures to plushies.
Just to recap, and after the adventures of Jango Fett and his clone Boba, a new mercenary is revealed in the universe of Star Wars. We follow a lone bounty hunter in a reality after the Empire’s downfall but before the birth of the First Order. We follow Mando in his adventures in the vast reaches of the galaxy where he meets both friend and foe. We are introduced to interesting characters and subtle plotlines while the show sprinkles nostalgia to add flavor. Oh, and baby Yoda. We can’t forget about how adorably cute baby Yoda is; and how potentially powerful he (or she) is too!
Pedro Pascal stars as the titular character together with a great ensemble consisting of Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, and Emily Swallow.
The Mouse House seems like it has a lot planned when it comes to their Star Wars content that they will be adding on Disney+, including a series that focuses on Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), whom we last saw in Rogue One and the highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi television series that will be helmed by Ewan McGregor, though production of the series has been hitting snags in their pre-production phase.
Disney hasn’t really given a specific date in October for Mandalorian’s season 2. It is almost certain that season 2 will be duly advertised most probably with baby Yoda taking the lead. Another interesting thing to note is how Iger hinted that they might be thinking of expanding the universe of Mando into potential spinoffs via other popular characters in the series per The Hollywood Reporter sources.
