The Mandalorian bounty hunter is traveling across the galaxy in order to reunite Baby Yoda with his own species or find a Jedi to take care of him. Along the way, both will have to survive being hunted by the Empire while they continue bonding as a family. This is the Way.
The new episode is scheduled to be released on October 30. The second season will be eight episodes and the runtime for each episode will be longer than the episodes of season one. Fans are expecting to see more cute scenes involving Baby Yoda, more action scenes with actor Pedro Pascal, and other characters from recent Star Wars series.
After viewing the trailer and looking through online reports, fans can expect to see Gina Carano and Carl Weathers reprise their roles from the first season. Fans may also see the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda meet Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson, former Padawan to Anakin Skywalker. There are also rumors that actor Temuera Morrison will reprise his role as the bounty hunter Boba Fett from the original Star Wars movies. Since before most fans thought Boba Fett died in Return of the Jedi, maybe it will reveal how he made it out of the pit of Sarlacc.
The trailer didn’t show much spoilers and that’s good because suspense is necessary. However, there was a surprise cameo, Sasha Banks, a WWE wrestler, that was shown for about a couple of seconds. Banks will be playing the role of Star Wars Rebels character Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian who fought for the Rebellion. This was a surprise, but the Star Wars universe is huge so there will be more unexpected cameos.
