‘The Mandalorian’: Disney CEO Confirms Season 2 Will Not Be Delayed
Season two of The Mandalorian is one of the most anticipated releases of 2020. Season one was extremely well-received and seemingly brought the divided Star Wars fanbase together following the release of The Rise of Skywalker. However, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, many fans assume the latest season would be delayed. However, during a conversation with CNBC, Disney CEO Bob Chapek confirmed that season two of The Mandalorian will not be delayed and release on Disney+ on time.
This news suggests season two is already complete and in post-production. This news is rather exciting due to the fact that a third season of the acclaimed series is already in the works. Disney+ began airing episodes of a new behind-the-scenes series that documents the making of the show.
Last week, news surfaced that season two will feature an appearance by the classic Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett. Temuera Morrison will play the role after previous appearances as Jango Fett, in the prequel films. Other recent rumors suggest that Sabine Wren, who last appeared in Star Wars: Rebels, will play a role in the series as well.
Season two of The Mandalorian is shaping up to be rather ambitious. For example, series star Giancarlo Esposito recently teased some major Lightsaber action in season two. Moreover, Daredevil star Rosario Dawson will appear as the fan-favorite character from the Star Wars animated series The Clone Wars and Rebels Ahsoka Tano. Additionally, WWE Superstar Sasha Banks and the legendary Jamie Lee Curtis will reportedly appear in the upcoming season as well.
