Disney+’s critically acclaimed Star Wars live-action series is back! The Mandalorian season 2 will see the return of our favorite bounty hunter with a heart of gold on a search for Baby Yoda’s home. As the trailer for the second season teases, it won’t be an easy path for Mando and Baby Yoda.
Check out the trailer below:
“The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire,” reads the description for season 2, per a press release.
The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, and Giancarlo Esposito. Season 2 will also feature quite the list of big-name Star Wars characters. Rosario Dawson will play The Clone Wars and Rebels animated series favorite Ahsoka Tano, bringing the beloved Jedi character to live-action for the first time.
Temuera Morrison has also been cast as an older Boba Fett who seemingly escaped the Sarlacc pit from Return of the Jedi. Katee Sackhoff will play Bo-Katan Kryze, a Mandalorian hero whom she also voiced in The Clone Wars and Rebels. Timothy Olyphant plays Cobb Vanth, a Tatooine’s self-appointed sheriff from the Aftermath novels by Chuck Wendig.
Finally, Terminator and Aliens star Michael Biehn is set to play a bounty hunter from Mando’s past. We don’t know if his character is based on an established character just yet. The trailer also reveals that WWE superstar Sasha Banks has been cast in an undisclosed role.
The all-star line-up of directors for season 2 includes Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed, and Robert Rodriguez. Favreau also serves as executive producer along with Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson, with Karen Gilchrist serving as co-executive producer.
The second season will premiere on Oct. 30 on Disney+.
We also know that The Mandalorian won’t end with season 2. It was revealed earlier this year that season 3 is already in the works, which means plenty more adventures await our dynamic duo.
The Mandalorian will soon be joined by at least two other Star Wars live-action series as well. One will focus on the life of Obi-Wan Kenobi after the events of Revenge of the Sith. It will see the return of Ewan McGregor to the Jedi role first made famous by Sir Alec Guinness. A series starring Rogue One spy Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and K-2SO (Alan Tudyk) is also in the works. Both will hit Disney+ at a later date.
