In addition to releasing a new trailer for the second season of The Mandalorian, Disney+ has released a new poster for the Star Wars TV series. When we last left the masked bounty hunter, The Mandalorian had been tasked with reuniting The Child (better known as Baby Yoda) with its kind. My hope is that after the proof-of-concept first season the storytelling will start taking some chances and start growing the characters. The first season of The Mandalorianwas fine for what it was as escapist entertainment that was borderline Star Wars fan-fiction, but I’m curious to see what they do in Season 2, especially as they start leaning more into the mythology created in the Clone Wars TV series.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Mandalorian:
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. “The Mandalorian” stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. Directors for the new season include Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed and Robert Rodriguez. Showrunner Jon Favreau serves as executive producer along with Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson, with Karen Gilchrist serving as co-executive producer.
