After some hiccups from the fan community guessing when the new trailer for the second season of The Mandalorian would drop, Disney decided today was the day.
This is the way.
The new footage even looks a bit more slick than the last season and reveals that Din Djarin’s mission will be to return The Child aka Baby Yoda to the Jedi.
Wrestler Sasha Banks can also been seen in the trailer sporting some robes, but what her role is can’t be determined here. There had been rumors she had taken to part of Star Wars Rebels character Sabine, a fellow Mandalorian.
They’ve also confirmed the full directors list includes Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed, and Robert Rodriguez.
Season 3 is well into pre-production and as The Ronin has reported will see the return of production designer Andrew Jones with Jon Favreau expected to return to direct at least one episode.
The new series will begin airing on Disney+ starting on October 30th.
