Today, Disney + has given the biggest glimpse yet into the highly anticipated return of Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian in season two with a new trailer, imagery, and key art. In the turmoil after the collapse of the Galactic Empire, the Mandalorian continues his search for the galaxy and has the task of reuniting "The Child" with his own species, an order of hostile wizards known as Jedi. This is the way! Baby Yoda is back in the house!
The series creator Jon Favreau recently announced that Season 2 will introduce more characters. It uses a storytelling format that is very similar to HBO's GOT. Entertainment Weekly said, "The world was really intrigued by Game of Thrones and how it played out as the characters followed different storylines – this is very appealing to me as a viewer."
Rumor has it that Rosario Dawson (Daredevil, Rent) and Timothy Olyphant (Santa Clarita Diet, Fargo) will join the cast that includes Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. New season directors include Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed and Robert Rodriguez. Showrunner Jon Favreau is co-executive producer with Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson and Karen Gilchrist is co-executive producer.
