    Baby Yoda is back. As we get closer to October 30, the premiere date for the second season of The Mandalorian, the show's marketing campaign is ramping up. Last week, we learned about the premiere date, and now we are getting our first look images at season 2, as well as a ton of information and quotes from the cast and crew of Disney Plus' hit show.



    Entertainment Weekly is exclusively showing the first official images at the new season, which don't really show us much, except definitely confirming that it exists. However, they are also dropping a lot of information that Mandalorian fans all over the world will be very pleased to hear. Jon Favreau, the showrunner, was asked about the overwhelming success of the first season, and why did that happen. Here's what he said:



    Star Wars veteran Dave Filoni also talked about his partnership with Favreau, and how it helped them create such a special show in the first place:

    The EW article also teased a lot of things about the upcoming season. By now, we've known for a while that the Outer Rim will be very present in the second season and that the story will mainly focus on Giancarlo Esposito's Moff Gideon chasing down Din Djarin, our main character, and his crew, including the ever-adorable Child, or as the world knows him, Baby Yoda. About this, Favreau said:



    And Filoni added:

    Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon) said about the storyline for the new season:



    He will also command 'a larger vehicle, hint-hint,' and spent some time with the Child.





    However, we should also expect new storylines focused on other things. This is nothing strange to Mandalorian fans, with our first season having some episodes like The Prisoner that deviated from the show's main plot but still developed our beloved characters and their emotional journeys. Favreau said:

    Over the past six to eight months, we've been hearing a lot of names attached to the new season, from Rosario Dawson reportedly playing fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano, to Temuera Morrison playing a yet-to-be-revealed character (will it be Boba Fett, a clone trooper, both?), and including Katee Sackhoff playing Bo-Katan in live-action (she also voiced her in the animated shows) or Timothy Olyphant. About all of these new castmembers, Gina Carano had this to say:



    She also pointed out that actors only received the scripts from the episodes they were in.



    Another roster of names attached to the second season is that of the directors. We've now learned that the creator and showrunner, Jon Favreau, will helm the premiere episode of the season (airing October 30), and we also have names like Dave Filoni, Carl Weathers (who plays Greef Karga on the show), Robert Rodriguez, or Peyton Reed. Returning directors from the first season are Bryce Dallas Howard and Rick Famuyiwa. This season will be eight episodes long as well.

    We've also learned now that the creator himself, George Lucas, visited the set when Dave Filoni was directing his episode. Filming for the season ended four days before the pandemic hit back in March, so principal photography was not affected. However, as Favreau pointed out, the biggest challenge of the postproduction process was pulling off Ludwig Göransson's score:

    The second season of The Mandalorian premieres exclusively on Disney+ on October 30, 2020. The marketing campaign is now kicking off, so we should be getting our first trailer any day now.

    In the fourth photo, he's totally showing off his signet and trying to pass it off as casual.

    Mando has gotta be annoyed on some level... he essentially now has to decide whether to sling his rifle or wear the jetpack. Inconvenient. #firstouterrimproblems
