Disney+ has debuted a set of first look images for the upcoming season 2 of the ‘Star Wars’ spin-off series ‘The Mandalorian’.
Arriving on the Disney streaming service from October 30th, Jon Favreau has promised that the new season will introduce a bigger picture of the ‘Star Wars’ universe.
“The new season is about introducing a larger story in the world. The stories become less isolated, yet each episode has its own flavour, and hopefully, we’re bringing a lot more scope to the show.”
Favreau went on to state that both existing and new characters will also get bigger storylines.
“As we introduce other characters, there are opportunities to follow different storylines. The world was really captivated by Game of Thrones and how that evolved as the characters followed different storylines—that’s very appealing to me as an audience member.”

With so many questions left unanswered from season 1, season 2 will look to address these including a closer look at Baby Yoda and The Client. Moff Gideon’s dark saber gets its own story with an explanation of this ancient weapon to the modern world, a collapsed world.
Pedro Pascal has also previously revealed the arc of his character in season 2.
“We start very directly after the first [season] and he’s going into very dangerous territory. He is very much a passenger to the experience in unexpected ways — not knowing what’s to come, not knowing how much or how best to protect the Child. We don’t know how far he will go to do that, and they’re finding new ways to push the envelope.” He adds, “On a moment-to-moment basis, he’s discovering that question: ‘What do you want?’ That isn’t clear to him, or to me.” At which point Filoni provocatively chimes in, adding, “We think we know how the characters are going to react, and it can be surprising how they do react.”
Season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian will premiere on Disney+ October 30th.
