"The Mandalorian" will return to Disney on October 30th with a second season.
The premiere of the second season of "The Mandalorian" is getting closer and closer. Disney released a new trailer for the upcoming second season of the popular "Star Wars" show on Monday.
The first season of "The Mandalorian" served as the tentpole launch title for Disney + and helped the streaming service gain a fast subscriber base shortly after launch. Season two of "The Mandalorian" is expected to see some familiar faces including Temuera Morrison (who played Jango Fett in "Attack of the Clones") as Boba Fett and ex-Jedi Ahsoka Tano, portrayed by Rosario Dawson . Giancarlo Esposito, who portrayed the sinister Imperial agent Moff Gideon in the series' first season, is also expected to compete against the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) as the title protagonist works to reconnect the child with his species.
The new trailer "The Mandalorian" doesn't offer a glimpse into any of these teased characters, but features a handful of scenes from the Mandalorian and Season 1 characters Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), who work together as the Mandalorian Quests to help the child.
The cast and creative team behind the "Star Wars" show are slated to begin production for a third season by the end of the year. The series creator Jon Favreau discussed the future of "The Mandalorian" in a recent interview, in which he stated that the streaming series could potentially be turned into a feature film at some point in the future.
The first season of the Disney + show was well received by most of the critics and was well received by awards season voters. "The Mandalorian" won 7 Emmys earlier this year, including an Emmy for Outstanding Visual Special Effects.
Several other Star Wars shows are being developed for Disney +, including a series about Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), a protagonist in the 2016 film Rogue One, and an Obi-Wan Kenobi series directed by Ewan McGregor. According to reports in April, Leslye Headland, co-creator of "Russian Doll," was working on a female-centric "Star Wars" show that was supposed to take place off the timeline of the franchise's nine films and TV shows.
