The Mandalorian arrived like a ton of bricks on the heads of Star Wars fans who hoped that the show would fulfill all of their Boba Fett fantasies. What they received was more than even they could have expected. The first season wasted no time in revealing that this homage to spaghetti westerns and samurai films would not just be about a faceless bounty hunter but also a child with a very familiar visage.
From the very first episode, Baby Yoda completely changed the dynamic of the show. Marketed as a story about a gunslinger making his way through the lawless corners of the galaxy and looking for his next pay day, The Mandalorian turned out to be a space-themed homage to Lone Wolf and Cub — a “father” protecting his child from money-hungry bounty hunters and ruthless Imperial agents. Mando might have once seemed like a rogue, but we learn that he has a heart of gold when he spares the baby’s life and decides to keep him safe.
By the end of the first season, Mando and Baby Yoda’s bond has been all but solidified, as the duo heads toward another adventure in space. But Moff Gideon and what remains of the Empire are still after them. Will the heroes be able to escape?
Like the first season, The Mandalorian season 2 will count on an amazing list of directors, including Star Wars veteran Dave Filoni, showrunner Jon Favreau, Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Rodriguez, Peyton Reed, and Carl Weathers.
