The Disney+ streamer The Mandalorian was a smash hit when it was released last year to introduce the new streaming platform. Many observers have credited the series for redeeming the Star Wars franchise altogether! Get your first look at The Mandalorian Season 2 trailer below.
Pardon me, if I don’t quite go that far. Sure, the series was much better than the entire sequel trilogy but that was a very very low bar. And it was far from perfect. The pacing was laborious at times and the plot was thin.
All it did – really – was to present a Star Wars story that was infinitely more faithful to the original vision of creator George Lucas than anything seen in the sequel trilogy and I guess that was enough for fans.
In any case, naturally, season 2 would be one of the most hotly anticipated series in 2020 and finally, the official trailer is out. The trailer sets out the main story line for season 2, as the Mandalorian seeks to reunite baby Yoda with its own kind – presumably we will find out more about its origins.
There was talk of Ahsoka and Boba Fett appearing in season 2 but there were no indications of either in the trailer. Instead we are given a glimpse of a mysterious female in typical Jedi-like garb.
We also get to see Cara Dune and Greef Karga returning from season 1, along with various intriguing locations – an ice planet and a trip over the ocean, and of course familiar fan favourite vehicles. Hopefully, there is more plot that mere nostalgic fan service in this new season, dropping on 30th October.
… still there’s more …
