Jon Favreau, the creator of The Mandalorian, says season two is bigger than season one with “less isolated” stories.
Season one of The Mandalorian was a big hit for Lucasfilm and Disney+. However, one of the complaints was the standalone nature of some of the episodes that some times felt like random adventures before we got back to the main story.
Well, it sounds like season two will be a little more cohesive in this respect. Speaking to EW, creator Jon Favreau teased the upcoming season and what fans can look forward to seeing:
“The new season is about introducing a larger story in the world. The stories become less isolated, yet each episode has its own flavor, and hopefully we’re bringing a lot more scope to the show. Everything gets bigger, the stakes get higher, but also the personal story between the Child and the Mandalorian develops in a way I think people will enjoy.”
This will be music to the ears of many a Star Wars fan. If The Mandalorian season two can take what worked so well the first time out and build in the areas that Favreau suggests, we could be in for some quite special indeed.
The Mandalorian season two is set to premiere on 30th October 2020 and sees the returning Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin), Gina Carano (Cara Dune), Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon) and Bill Burr (Mayfield) alongside new cast additions Rosario Dawson (Daredevil), Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones), Katee Sackhoff (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Timothy Olyphant (Justified) and Michael Biehn (The Terminator).
