We knew it was coming out in October but Disney officially announced that the Season 2 premiere will be on October 30, keeping its Friday tradition. No trailer yet, just the poster image above. Things we do know about Season 2:
- Temeura Morrison, who played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, will reportedly be playing Boba Fett. This bugs me ’cause he should have stayed dead. Unless he’s in some flashback or something; that? I’d be okay with that, but having him survive the Sarlacc Pit is just dumb.
- Rosario Dawson will play Ahsoka Tano. I still haven’t watched any Clone Wars so this news is meh to me, but I’m sure it means a lot to many other fans. Looking at the calendar, if I put my mind to it I can probably binge through it all before Mando S2 starts up.
- Starbuck will play Bo-Katan Kryze. Katee Sackhoff will be reprising her Clone Wars and Rebels role of the Mandalorian warrior for Season 2.
- There’s gonna be a Gamorrean.
- Baby Yoda is still adorable.
Keep in mind all these reports are coming from news outlets. I don’t think Disney or Lucasfilm has actually confirmed anything, but Season 2 is taking shape quite nicely (other than Boba Fett).
Star Wars films may have gone to **** but thank the maker we have the Mandalorian to look forward to. And yes, I will do my Season 1 finale wrap-up eventually.
