The second season of The Mandalorian starts streaming in a month and a half on 30th October, and we finally have our first trailer for it.
This is the most we’ve seen of the new episodes with just a handful of pictures having been released before now.
“The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire,” reads the description for the new season.
Those disappointed by a lack of Jedi in the first season will be happy to know that they seem to be a focus here. Speaking to an unknown character Mando is talking to an unknown character who tells him to seek out the Jedi to reunite them with
Baby Yoda the Child.
There is mention of “Mandalore the Great” who fought against the Jedi in the past, but this may be an adaptation of the character “Mandalore the Ultimate“, “Mandalore the First” or some new creation for the show. We highly doubt it’s Boba or Jango Fett though.
Interestingly Din Djarin and the Child run into some X-Wings which may mean some Rebels / New Republic characters have a part to play here.
Finally the “this is the way” catchphrase which the first season popularised is used not once but twice in this short trailer.
We were sincerely hoping that this first real look at the season would come with news about Disney Plus expanding to new countries and territories. Many places, like South Africa, still don’t have an option to legally subscribe to this service. With the second season of one of the most popular shows right now still being locked away by this it will sting for those on the right side of the law to be left out yet again.
This is the way :(
