Disney+ has just released the first trailer for season two of The Mandalorian.
The Mandalorian was a big hit for Disney+ last year, when it launched in November, and a popular character – baby Yoda – became a meme and one of Disney's most popular characters of all-time. And now it's back for a second season.
The second season of The Mandalorian will run for eight episodes. And it'll start streaming on Disney+ starting October 30. Similar to the first season, a new episode will be released weekly.
More baby Yoda
Season 2 is giving The Mandalorian fans more of what they want, which is more baby Yoda.
In this trailer, it explains how The Mandalorian is looking for The Child's home in Season 2. And it is tracking down the Jedi in doing so.
We also see appearances from X-Wings and TIE spacecraft in the trailer. But the plot of the season has not yet been fully revealed.
There is a brief glimpse of Sasha Banks' character. Yes, Sasha Banks from the WWE who also happens to be Snoop Dogg's cousin.
Of course, the highlight of this trailer, is seeing The Mandalorian get into a scrape with multiple assailants. Baby Yoda pops the lid on his floating cot to save himself as well.
It's pretty clear here that Disney+ is really marketing the fan adoration of The Child. Disney+ is also working hard to distract us from the current problems in the world – like the pandemic, unemployment rates being sky high, wild fires, etc. And if anyone can do it, it's definitely Disney.
When can I watch Season 2?
As mentioned, Season 2 of The Mandalorian will be airing on Disney+ starting on October 30.
Disney+ is going to be the only place that you can watch the series, which means that you'll need to sign up for the service.
Disney+ will cost you $6.99 per month or $69.99 for an entire year. And if you already have Hulu and/or ESPN+, you can bundle the three of them for only $12.99 per month. Which is an incredible value, as all three would normally cost you $18 per month.
There is plenty of other great content available on Disney+ as well. Including a ton of Marvel movies and TV series, the entire Star Wars franchise, not to mention Disney's vast catalog of kids movies and shows. If you have a kid at home, then it's worth signing up.
