The second season of The Mandalorian is reportedly set to feature several well-known characters from the Skywalker Saga.
Following a critically successful first season, the live-action Star Wars series has been green-lit for a second season with Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Narcos, Wonder Woman 1984) set to reprise his role as the titular character.
The adorable sensation, The Child, will also be making a return as The Mandalorian sets out to return him to his own kind.
According to Deadline, insiders with knowledge of the production have alluded to the possibility that Lucasfilm intends to feature “several established characters” from the first 9 Star Wars films. Naturally, details on the Lucasfilm production are scarce as they often are, but there is plenty of room to speculate.
With The Mandalorian’s first season taking place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, it is more likely that we’ll only see characters from the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy rather than any of the younger key figures of the sequel era.
With the show also being focused on a bounty hunter, we may see our titular hero cross paths with bounty hunters from The Empire Strikes Back like Bossk. If they decide to bring certain aspects of Legends back into canon, we could even see Boba Fett make a return.
Perhaps fans could finally have Sebastian Stan play Luke and Mando could cross paths with the famed warrior of the Rebel Alliance that destroyed the first Death Star and helped to bring the downfall of the Empire. There’s a big gap in his story with plenty to tell.
