Season 1 of The Mandalorian finished today but Jon Favreau is already looking ahead towards season 2 of what will come for Mando, which will be dropping in Fall 2020.
Jon Favreau took to social media today to start teasing the second season of The Mandalorian which he revealed by way of a toy statue of a Gamorrean, one of the species that guarded Jabba the Hutt. The difference between this Gamorrean and the ones from Tatooine is that this one is ripped. The palace guards were small and rather largely inept at what they were supposed to do.
Favreau’s image shows a Gamorrean that appears to be twice the size of ones that we have seen and it is ripped, with muscles covering his entire body.
He will most likely be one of the brand new characters of the second season because of how the first series of The Mandalorian ended. The show concluded with the Mando on a brand new mission to return Baby Yoda to his species.
As part of the message, Favreau also posted that the second season will be released in the Fall of 2020. This is to be expected as more streaming shows are starting to make an annual release date every year. Titans, Marvelous Mrs Maisel, and The Crown are all in the same boat. The show will most likely start filming sometime within the next month to meet this release date.
In about 2 months, the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will premiere on Disney+. The Obi-Wan series, the Cassian series and a rumored Doctor Aphra series should all start filming this year as well, especially since the films will be on hiatus for the next few years.
These shows seem to be the immediate future of Star Wars, but more may be announced during Star Wars Celebration.
