Familiar Star Wars ‘saga characters’ set for The Mandalorian Season 2

January 3rd, 2020 by Marc Comments

After the confirmation that The Mandalorian season 2 will be airing at the end of 2020 (here) we here at FTN have been gleaning news anywhere we can find it.

I speculated that Darth Maul may be lined up for season 2 in the post above and now Deadline have revealed that “Insiders have hinted that several established characters from the Skywalker saga’s feature films mythology will make appearances during the show’s sophomore season.”

Now, this is interesting given the Darth Maul speculation but also because one of our guys here at FTN has speculated that he believes The Child (Baby Yoda) may not be destined for his home planet but rather the Jedi Academy run by Luke Skywalker (this also ties into he rumour that a Jedi Academy animated series my be in the works – see the link above again). After all, we know that sometime after Return of the Jedi Luke created a Jedi Academy which ultimately fell apart with the creation of Kylo Ren but what we don’t know is what happened in between Jedi and The Force Awakens,

So, who would you like to see in Season 2 of The Mandalorian? Let me know…

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal along with Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Julia Jones and Ming-Na Wen.

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….
