WATCH: Trailer For ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 Released
After the first season of The Mandalorian premiered on the Disney+ streaming service in November, the series has been met with almost universal acclaim. Created by Jon Favreau, the Mandalorian stars the titular character played by Pedro Pascal as he attempts to protect a mysterious yet powerful alien child (nicknamed “Baby Yoda” by Star Wars fans) from the very people that hired him as a bounty hunter. Throughout the first season, the two traveled far throughout the galaxy in order to find shelter away from harm. Towards the finale, the Mandalorian faced off against Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), a former member of the Empire and the leader of the group attempting to track down the child. Though the Mandalorian is able to save the child, he must now take him to his home planet before Moff Gideon and his army can capture them, which sets up the story for season 2. On September 15, the trailer for the second season was released.
In the trailer, We see the Mandalorian and the child traveling to different planets while they are also heard meeting with someone who warns him to reunite the latter his own kind. When the Mandalorian asks where he should go, she says that he must be the one to determine that, though she suggests delivering him to the Jedi. The Mandalorian scoffs at this, questioning why it would be a good idea to deliver the child to a race of “enemy sorcerers,” to which the woman replies that it is the only way. The music in the trailer starts to become faster as the Mandalorian flies in his ship with the child. The audience is then briefly shown Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and Greef Carga (Carl Weathers) before it cuts to a handful of stormtroopers chasing after the Mandalorian. The Mandalorian and the child are soon seen entering a fighting arena, where an alien says that this is no place for a child. The Mandalorian states that wherever he goes so will he, to which the alien replies that he has been aware of this before a number of people prepare to attack them. The Mandalorian powers up his weapon and the trailer cuts to black for a few seconds where only the sound of fighting is heard. The trailer then cuts back to the end of that fight in which the Mandalorian has easily won. As he walks off, the title card is shown before the trailer ends.
The Mandalorian season 2 will premiere on October 30 on the streaming service Disney+. Fans are extremely excited to see what will happen next now that the Star Wars franchise can move away from Skywalker Saga.
