Disney+’s The Mandalorian was a smash hit as the first live-action Star Wars TV series, and Season 2 is already in production.

Although an exact release date hasn’t been set, creator Jon Favreau announced it’ll be sometime in Fall 2020:

Unclear who that new creature is, but there’s plenty of tantalizing mysteries to unwrap after the debut eight-episode season. Now, let’s take a closer look at the future of The Mandalorian on Disney+.

What to expect from Disney+’s The Mandalorian Season 2

Well, the unexpected. No one could’ve anticipated the appearance of Baby Yoda at the end of Season 1’s pilot episode. Mando was a wonderful character to follow, yet Baby Yoda arguably is more compelling.

That’s partially because Yoda’s species hasn’t been identified in Star Wars canon. Where does Baby Yoda come from? Is he a clone? Is he Yoda’s son?

The child’s presence bears so many questions. Expect at least some of those answered in The Mandalorian Season 2, lest Disney+ draw the ire of Star Wars fandom.

Let’s face it: the sequel film trilogy has been polarizing to say the least. This show gives fans hope of a bright future in a galaxy far, far away.

Look for an even more star-powered supporting cast, ties to the original film trilogy and more backstory on Mando. As we learned in the Season 1 finale, he’s not a native of Mandalore, but rather a foundling.

Struggling with identity has been a trademark across Star Wars. Anakin Skywalker didn’t have a father. Living up to his billing as “The Chosen One” proved taxing and essentially fatal. Anakin turned into more machine than man as Darth Vader as his son, Luke, was born.

Luke was a farm boy gazing upon the twin sunsets of Tatooine, longing for more. Rey and Kylo Ren both grapple with identity and their place in the galaxy.

This Mandalorian is an adopted son. He’s not really among the fiercest Star Wars warriors. He’s a vulnerable antihero. Meanwhile, Baby Yoda’s origin is a total baffler. These character elements in particular help The Mandalorian fit seamlessly into the Star Wars universe.

The Mouse House is bringing out all the bells, whistles and stunning visuals, which means The Mandalorian will continue to be presented on Disney+ in 4K, HDR, and Dolby Atmos.

You won’t have to pay extra for higher quality, either. The $6.99 monthly price tag of Disney+ will offer the best possible presentation of the show in terms of video and audio quality.
