A couple months ago, Jon Favreau confirmed that Season 2 of The Mandalorian will hit its target release date of October this year since filming wrapped before COVID-19 halted television and film production around the world. Since then, fans have been anxiously awaiting more details for the sophomore season and more importantly a teaser trailer and premiere date.
There have been a lot of rumors circulating online this past week that Disney/Lucasfilm will drop The Mandalorian Season 2 trailer this weekend. More specifically, tonight or Saturday during the NBA game on ESPN or ABC, which are both Disney-owned companies.
Below are the details for both of those games:
- Thursday, Aug. 20, during the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers game
- Saturday, Aug. 22, during the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers game
Dropping the trailer this weekend is definitely probable since Star Wars Celebration was supposed to take place this weekend in Anaheim, California, but was canceled due to COVID-19. The Season 1 trailer for The Mandalorian debuted during Star Wars Celebration last year.
Season 2 of The Mandalorian is set to premiere this October on Disney+. Returning for season two are Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian, Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Emily Swallow as the Armorer, and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon.
Newcomers to the series include WWE superstar Sasha Banks in an unknown role, Michael Biehn as a bounty bunter from Mando’s past, Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett, Rosario Dawson rumored to play Jedi Ahsoka Tano, Timothy Olyphant rumored to play Cobb Vanth and Katee Sackhoff as the Mandalorian leader Bo-Katan Kryze.
Jon Favreau also returns as executive producer/writer for the second season.
