Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled the latest trailer for the highly anticipated sophomore season of The Mandalorian during Monday Night Football. The full trailer gives us some more glimpses of Baby Yoda, along with a few new characters that Star Wars fans might recognize.
The Mandalorian season 2 will focus on the continuing adventures of bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and his new charge, The Child (otherwise known as Baby Yoda). Rosario Dawson is playing Ahsoka Tano, Temuera Morrison is on board as notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett, Timothy Olyphant as likely playing a character named Cobb Vanth who wears Boba Fett’s famous armor, Katee Sackhoff is playing Bo-Katan, and Michael Biehn has joined the cast as some sort of bounty hunter. Carl Weathers is reprising his role as Greef Karga, Gina Carano is back as former Stormtrooper Cara Dune, and Giancarlo Esposito‘s villainous Moff Gideon continues his hunt for The Child.
Check out the latest trailer for The Mandalorian Season 2 below:
Last season, our titular character and The Child narrowly escaped the pursuit of Imperial Agent Moff Gideon, thanks to some help from Cara Dune, Greef Karga, and a bounty droid called IG-11. While Moff Gideon was momentary thwarted, he was later revealed to be in possession of the Darksaber as part of our cliffhanger ending. The second season picks up just after that situating many of the characters we’ve come to know more clearly in the Star Wars universe. Ahsoka Tano and maybe even Boba Fett are set to appear, along with Timothy Olyphant who could possibly be playing a character we’ve seen before.
Directors for the new season of The Mandalorian 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 and Carrie Beck serving as co-executive producers. The writers for this season are Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Rick Famuyiwa.
