    I have not seen this question posted anywhere, and with the Season 2 trailer dropping (literally) any day now, I want to know what everyone’s personal “wishlist” for the upcoming season is. Also, what are some things you would like to see featured in the teaser trailer?

    Here is my personal wish list for Season 2:

    1) Above all, I want a stronger narrative. I’m not talking “more action” or “more romance” or “Less Baby Yoda,” I’m talking about a consistent tone. Season 1 confused me because some episodes were one-time shots: “Mando goes to a planet, does his thing, and leaves.” And some were inter-connected with a “master story.” I want something more consistent. Give is a long, drawn-out story, or stick with the one-time shots. Not both.

    2) An explanation of everyone’s motives. True, I like a good mystery. It creates suspense and builds anticipation, but I was frustrated with the first season because I didn’t know what anyone wanted, except that they wanted it right away. Why was everyone after Baby Yoda? Why does Mando travel with a baby yoda? If baby yoda was so important to Mando, why is he leaving it with un-trustee babysitters while he does bounty hunter duties? I would like clarity on this, because not knowing these things makes me care a bit less for the characters.

    3) A better usage of the Unreal Game engine tech. (This I would like to see in the trailer.) For season 1, creating flat barren landscapes and deserts are sufficient, but my god, can we see a bustling city once in a while? Imagine how awesome they can use this game engine to create Coruscant or Naboo or some place that is CLEARLY not from planet earth. Like Anakin, I’m getting tired of sand.

    4) More inclusion of ALL eras. (This I would also like to see in the trailer.) Having pit droids in that one episode was nice, but I want more prequel stuff. So far, we got approximately 10 Original Trilogy references for every one prequel reference. That is not a good balance. I expect better from season 2.

    5) Ahsoka in the show, but please don’t take over. I want Ahsoka to come “in and out” the way she did in Rebels Season 2. I’m afraid Ahsoka will suck all the air out of the room if she’s a major player, detracting from Mando and the main story. Ahsoka is a fan-favorite, and she deserves her own show, not this show.

    6) I want that crazy Twi’lek back. (For no particular reason.)

    I don't want it to have too much Ahsoka, or make Mando join the resistance. Just let him do his own thing

    I think there's decent reason to believe Season 2 could be even better. Season 1 was a joy from start to finish, but it spent a lot of time putting pieces on the board. We're going into Season 2 with much more narrative drive built in. Mando has a set mission: find the Jedi, find a home for the Child. And there's a clear antagonist in Moff Gideon. Feels like this time around, we can jump right in with the pedal to the floor.

    I agree with this completely.

    That said, addressing the wishlist side of things, what I want more than anything is for the Mandalorian to retain its own self-contained narrative without it spilling into others, *cough*Ahsoka*cough*. I don't mind cameos featuring familiar people or places, but I very much want this show to remain its own thing so that it can explore ideas that are unique to its premise and characters rather than being repurposed to further explore existing ones from other media.

    Agree. They should also flesh out existing characters before expanding to new ones. Let’s face it: we don’t know a whole lot about anyone, especially baby yoda. I would be disappointed if Ahsoka is a mere cameo, but I would like her to come in and out like how she did in Rebels.

    Rebels is actually a really good example to cite! It featured a fair few characters from other shows or films, but they never hogged the spotlight to the point that the central cast were totally forgotten.

    I enjoyed Season One, but there is some room for improvement.
    • Have a more consistent cast of characters! I really liked characters like Cara Dune and Greef Carga and wish we got more of them in Season One. The marketing led me to believe that there would be more of an ensemble cast, rather than just Mando and Baby Yoda. (Not that that’s a bad thing!)
    • Have a singular arc that stretches across the entire season! I like Season 1, but it felt like there were two arcs (Chapters 1-3 and 7-8 respectively) with a few random episodes thrown in between. The way I see it, Chapter 4 and the last scene of Chapter 5 were the only things that really connected the first three and final two episodes. And while this kind of structure might work for Clone Wars or Rebels, The Mandalorian is a different beast altogether and I’d like a tighter storyline this season, with each episode somewhat leading into the next.)
    Some of my hopes that may fall more into “pipe dream” territory:

    • Give The Armorer a bigger role!
    • Bring in more Mandalorian characters (or characters wearing Mandalorian armor) besides
      Sabine Wren, Bo Katan, Cobb Vanth, and Boba Fett if they all really show up as rumored/speculated.
    • Have some Siege of Mandalore connections/references.
    • This is kinda expected, but give more backstory and flashbacks to Din, as well as Gideon, Cara, and Greef if necessary.
    • Less Earth-like biomes and locales.
    • No lightsaber wielders besides Moff Gideon and Ahsoka. (And Luke I guess if he ever makes an appearance.)
    • Don’t ruin the mystical nature of Yoda’s species.
    • Most importantly, give Baby Yoda his own set of beskar armor!

    That we get more characters who stay alive after one episode. I understand the reasoning behind killing some of the introduced cast and guest actors, but keeping them around does so much more for the story and the world IMO. (And it also prevents you from burning through actors like crazy!)

    I just want a good show. I don’t want to make a wish list and get upset when it’s not granted. Then like most childish fans call the show trash or label episodes filler when they don’t get what they wished for.

    Am one of those that thinks that could be cool to see a directly animated character in a real life show/movie.
    But someone has thought that maybe a directly animated character might not work only being played by an actress or an actor?
    Specially "painted" aliens speaking english or any dubbed language.
    What I love about SW is that aliens has different voices, sounds and languages. Is what make it special.

    Just a silly thought before we get the trailer that never comes.

    "Here's why you can't exterminate us, aruetii. We're not huddled in one place—we span the galaxy. We need no lords or leaders—so you can't destroy our command. We can live without technology—so we can fight with our bare hands. We have no species or bloodline—so we can rebuild our ranks with others who want to join us. We're more than just a people or an army, aruetii. We're a culture. We're an idea. And you can't kill ideas—but we can certainly kill you " ―Mandalore the Destroyer
