The Mandalorian season 2 will not be delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, as we have been assured by the head of Disney.
The Disney+ exclusive series went down a storm from its first episode to its last, where it made us genuinely care for a robot that tried to harm to our precious Baby Yoda previously.
The Mandalorian was and is a great series and one of the best and most engaging I’ve ever watched, despite one and a half episodes being less than, well, good.
The heist one wasn’t great at all and I must say that I’m not looking forward to those guys coming back in the second season, but I am looking forward to almost everything else about the show.
As reports from The Hollywood Reporter state, Boba Fett will be appearing in season two in some capacity, and will supposedly being joined by Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson.
It’s shaping up to be a genuinely fantastic season, and will also bring the Darksaber into canon, with Moff Gideon brandishing it at the end of the final episode.
I can’t wait.
Before all of this Coronavirus stuff went down, we were told that season two would be coming surprisingly early in October of 2020.
The issue was – well at least one of the fairly minor ones when you apply some perspective – with everything shutting down, production of films and series was put on halt as large groups weren’t allowed.
Despite this, Disney CEO Bob Chapek recently said in a recent interview that nothing is changing with the production and ultimate release of The Mandalorian season 2.
Among other things, he stated:
“There will be no delay on Mandalorian“.
With that said, it is very possible that The Mandalorian season 2 could be delayed, especially if the visual effects aren’t completed in time for October.
The crew is able to work remotely, but that process is “more all-consuming than usual,” according to director Rick Famuyiwa.
We’ll keep you updated…
