Last week, the internet went ablaze when reports surfaced that Rosario Dawson had been cast as fan favorite Jedi Ahsoka Tano in season two of The Mandalorian. Well, the news keeps coming.
According to Making Star Wars, Michael Biehn (The Terminator) is also set to appear in the Star Wars series. It is unknown who Biehn is playing, but the site says “he is playing a bounty bunter from The Mando’s past.” Whether or not he is an old friend or an old foe remains to be seen.
The reputable Star Wars site has also learned that comedian Bill Burr, who appeared in season one of the series as Mayfeld, is returning as well. Which means Mayfeld may have some unfinished business with Mando. It is unclear how many episodes both Biehn and Burr will appear but we expect them to have pivotal roles.
Also returning for season two are Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian, Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Emily Swallow as the Armorer, and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon. Newcomers to the series WWE superstar Sasha Banks in an unknown role, and the aforementioned Dawson as Tano, and of course how could we forget the return of Baby Yoda aka “The Child.”
Directors on the series include Bryce Dallas Howard (Pete’s Dragon), Peyton Reed (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), Robert Rodriguez (Alita: Battle Angel), Carl Weathers, Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars), and Jon Favreau (The Lion King). Favreau will once again showrun and executive produce alongside Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
The Mandalorian season two will make its return to Disney+ this October. You can stream all episodes of the first season now. For more information on Disney+ and the amazing content they have and how you sign-up, visit DisneyPlus.com
