Commander Cody! Ahsoka Tano! Anakin Skywalker! Darth Vader! rumours about The Mandalorian Season 2 and Obi-Wan Kenobi series

August 28th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Some cool rumours today about the upcoming The Mandalorian Season 2 and the soon-to-start-filming Obi-Wan series.

Kessel Run Transmissions have shared news (below) about the two new series – and as they recently they broke the news about The Bad Batch animated series, they have proven they have reliable sources – and it seems the two shows, as suspected by many, will connect to the wider Star Wars universe.

Firstly, they say that the trailer for The Mandalorian Season 2 was set to drop last week but was delayed and it seems that the reason might be that extra footage was filmed – possibly exclusively for the trailer –  of Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano.

The scene will reportedly see Ahsoka with a grey cape on beating up two anonymous bounty hunters. Reportedly, she looks incredible in the role.

Next, they comment on the rumours that Hayden Christensen will appear in the Obi-Wan series as we reported a while back. And it seems that, yes, he certainly will.

He will appear in flashbacks, and will be wearing the Jedi garb he wore in the Clone Wars series as the Obi-Wan story will tie into the Clone Wars a lot, reportedly.

They also report that the story will revolve around Vader searching for Kenobi and that Vader will also be a big character in the show. Will Christensen also play Vader? Unknown, but it would be very cool if he did, wouldn’t it?

Finally, they also report that Obi-Wan’s Clone Battalion the 212th will appear in the series, as will Clone Commander Cody, although in what capacity, we don’t know.

It could be flashbacks too. Or It could see Cody helping Vader search for Kenobi or perhaps still, Cody has managed to also overwrite Order 66 and is joining Captain Rex – who we’re hearing is set for The Mandalorian Season 2 –  in the fight against the Empire.

However it all pans out, if it’s right, it’s going to be pretty damned great.

Let me know your thoughts, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
