The Mandalorian season 2 is due for an October 2020 release and I genuinely can’t wait.

If the powers that be ask, I haven’t seen The Mandalorian yet. I mean Disney+ isn’t out in the UK yet. How could I have? Between you and me though, it’s one of the best TV shows I’ve ever seen.

As soon as I [allegedly] finished the last episode, I was gagging for more and the first thing I did was look into the possibility of The Mandalorian season 2.

I say ‘possibility’ as if a second season wasn’t in question, but what I’m getting at is that I want it, you want it, Disney probably wants it and even my dad who doesn’t really watch TV wants it.

Previously showrunner Jon Favreau revealed that season 2 would be released in the “fall”, or autumn to you and me, but it has since been officially confirmed that said fall time will be in October.

By then, I’ll actually have Disney+ I imagine. Actual HD or 4K quality. What a day that will be.

This comes after news that the Obi Wan series – with Ewen McGregor reprising his role – has been pushed back and the Cassian Andor series is apparently still happening, though I’m not sure anyone’s really.

It also means that The Mandalorian season 2 will be released between Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (August 2020) and WandaVision (December 2020) on the same streaming platform.

It’s a big year (last quarter?) for Disney+.

As this is Disney and they’re pretty good at keeping secrets, details for The Mandalorian season 2 are pretty slim, despite it having entered stages of production back in July of 2019, although it will supposedly feature original trilogy characters, as well as more Moff Gideon time.

Will Jon Favreau direct?

Though Favreau didn’t manage to direct any episodes of season one of The Mandalorian due to a busy schedule on the likes of The Lion King remake, he says he plans to direct at least one episode of the new season.

That should be fun. Whilst Favreau’s most recent directorial outputs haven’t been loved by all, he’s got some seriously amazing and popular films to his name, such as Elf and Iron Man. He’d be perfect for our Mando.

I’m a 23-year-old man(boy) and I’m still awaiting my Baby Yoda doll. I have no idea why the release has been held back so much, but considering Disney+ will be released in the UK in late March – as well as many other European countries – you’d have thought that the dolls would get a similar release.

Nope. June. Fucking 30th June.
