New Details For ‘The Mandalorian’ and The Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Emerge
Kessel Run Transmissions has shared new details regarding the second season of The Mandalorian and the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series’.
First, the outlet revealed that there is advertisement-exclusive footage of Ahsoka Tano. “She is wearing a grey cloak…. Ahsoka will be fighting two bounty hunter assassins.” While the outlet states they know the location of where this takes place, they did decide to hint the location. “It’s a very common location in Star Wars… You might go here to get a beverage.” This seems to be a reference to Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine, featured in A New Hope.
KRT also confirmed multiple reports that Hayden Christensen would indeed return as Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader for the Obi-Wan series, reportedly that Vader will be attempting to track down Obi-Wan, his old Jedi master and friend, while Commander Cody, the Clone Commander under General Kenobi’s command during the Clone Wars, will appear in the series alongside his unit- the 212th Battalion.
The Mandalorian season two will see the return of Pedro Pascal as a titular bounty hunter, Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Emily Swallow as the Armorer, Bill Burr as Mayfeld, Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon. The series will also include some newcomers including Rosario Dawson as Jedi Ahsoka Tano, with Michael Biehn and Sasha Banks in unknown roles. There are also rumors that Jamie Lee Curtis could have a role in the series, but has yet to be confirmed.
Directors on the series include Bryce Dallas Howard (Pete’s Dragon), Peyton Reed (Ant-Man), Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, Alita: Battle Angel), Carl Weathers, Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars), and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Jungle Book). Favreau will once again showrun and executive produce alongside Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
The Mandalorian season two is on track to premiere on Disney+ sometime in October.
Ewan McGregor will reprise his role for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Deborah Chow, who received praise for her directing duties on The Mandalorian, is set to direct all episodes of Kenobi. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy will produce along-with Chow, Jason D. McGatlin (The Rise of Skywalker), Tracey Seaward (The Queen), and John Swartz (Rogue One). Joby Harold (John Wick Chapter 3) wrote the script.
