The Mandalorian season 2 official trailer launched on September 15
The name Jedi, or sorcerers as they are referred to in the trailer, finally emerge in The Mandalorian season 2. The Child clearly has the force but it was never discussed as to what specifically he had in season 1 because it was just the way. The Mandalorian and the Child are still together going on adventures while questions are raised as to the Child’s origins. From season 1 are the returning characters Cara Dune, Greef Karga and stormtroopers. There might even be a Star Destroyer in the trailer when one scene featured stormtroopers running through a hall which looks similar to the inside of a Star Destroyer. Moff Gideon will be in season 2 but he is actually absent in the trailer.
The trailer is 1:52 with great visuals and suspenseful music to keep you wanting more. Not too much is revealed in the trailer but visually it was still exciting. Since the trailer launched there have been much rumors as to who will be in The Mandalorian. The rumors have not been confirmed in the trailer but have been confirmed because we can see who will be playing the rumored characters. Thankfully the rumored characters were not in the trailer because that would just be a huge spoiler. The biggest rumor is the return of Boba Fett. I already knew he escaped the Sarlacc pit from Return of the Jedi because he is Boba freakin’ Fett. The trailer actually doesn’t feature Boba Fett but Temuera Morrison, the actor that played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, has officially been cast for the roll.
Ahsoka Tano is rumored to be returning to the Star Wars universe in The Mandalorian. Ahsoka Tano first appeared in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars as the Jedi Padawan of Anakin Skywalker. Rosario Dawson has reportedly been cast to play Ahsoka Tano. Bo Katan from Star Wars Rebels is also rumored to be returning. Again, Ahsoka Tano and Bo Katan are not in the trailer. One rumor that cannot be confirmed is Emperor Palpatine. Rumors and fan theories say that Emperor Palpatine could make an appearance in The Mandalorian but there are no actors or information, yet, to confirm this.
Pedro Pascal quit?
Pedro Pascal, the actor that plays the Mandalorian, is rumored to have quit halfway through filming season 2. Rumors say that Pedro Pascal wanted to have more scenes with his helmet off. As a Mandalorian you are forbidden from removing your helmet. Pedro Pascal is said to have been frustrated about being in the Mandalorian suit and helmet all the time. Studio executives also refused Pedro Pascal’s demands. The frustration of having the suit and helmet on all the time combined with the studio refusing your demands appeared to be too much on Pedro Pascal to handle. Pedro Pascal in season 1 removed his helmet in only one scene which lasted about 3 minutes. Hopefully things have, or will, work out between Pedro Pascal and Disney.
