    Despite delays and cancellations across the entertainment industry, Disney CEO Bob Chapek has stated the second season of The Mandalorian will not be impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns and will maintain its October release date on Disney Plus.



    This is more of an affirmation than an update, as there has been no noise out of Disney nor Lucasfilm suggesting the show would be delayed. The statement came via Disney CEO Bob Chapek in an interview with CNBC about the status of Disney parks and products during the pandemic, including the progress of its first park re-opening of Shanghai Disneyland. Filming for The Mandalorian season 2 wrapped in early March just before the United States and other countries went into lockdowns, so it appears Mando might have snuck through just before the blast doors shut.

    Post-production on the series is able to be done 'from home' so to speak. In speaking with Variety, the show's animation supervisor, longtime ILM veteran Hal Hickel, assured fans they'll get their fix of Baby Yoda on time, as the crew is doing everything they can amid current circumstances to complete the show's post-production as scheduled.

    I hesitated to report this confirmation because there have been no reputable reports indicating the show could be pushed back, but in a time where there is so much uncertainty in the world, hearing confirmation from the head of Disney that we will be getting the second season of The Mandalorian on time is a security blanket of affirmation I am more than happy to share with my fellow Star Wars fans.

    It's SO nice to get confirmation of something I was looking forward to this year actually happening! (So far in 2020 I am 1 for 33,495. :p)
