Entertainment Weekly (EW) got an exclusive look at the upcoming season of THE MANDALORIAN, which will stream on Disney+ October 30, 2020. EW's exclusive includes some words from cast and crew, including Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Gina Carano, and more.
While we do not know too much about season 2, Lucasfilm has confirmed some small bits of information. Jon Favreau, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, and Robert Rodriquez will direct episodes from season 2, which will consist of eight episodes of varying lengths. The season length should not be a surprise, since it is the same amount of episodes as the first season. I expect the episode run times to be similar to last season, as well. Let's not go in expecting one hour plus long episodes, while that would be great, don't want to force the show to be an hour long just because it can.
As most of you probably want to see, let's dive right into the photos released today.
Stunning images, courtesy of Lucasfilm, that give us a look at what's to come in season 2! I hope we get to see a lot of the trio working together, that is Din Djarin, Cara Dune, and Greef Karga. We'll of course have the villainous Moff Gideon wielding the deadly Darksaber. Sand People, the Child, I mean I could go on if you have the time. There have also been rumors of certain actors and actresses playing certain characters in the show, Gina Carino spoke of these rumors saying, "Some of them are true, some are not true."
With its first season becoming an instant fan favorite, THE MANDALORIAN did manage to receive 15 nominations for the 72nd Emmy Awards. A huge congratulations to the cast and crew. Winners will be announced September 20, 2020 on ABC.
