Despite some pesky rumors that were circulating social media the over day, Disney+/Lucasfilm has confirmed the release date for the second season of The Mandalorian.
Disney+ will debut new episodes of The Mandalorian starting October 30. This lines up with what showrunner previously revealed stating the series would make its October release. “We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lock down, thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we have been able to do all of our visual effects and editing and postproduction remotely through systems that had been set up by those companies for us.”
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.
Now we patiently wait for the first trailer.
Every episode of The Mandalorian Season One is currently available for streaming on Disney+, along with Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, which features creator Jon Favreau, executive producer Dave Filoni, and many more as they take fans behind the scenes of the first live-action Star Wars series.
