With the season two premiere of the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian just a few weeks away, the Mouse House unveiled a new trailer for the highly-anticipated live-action Star Wars series during the Monday Night Football game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys. Finally, the latest teaser gives us our first idea of what the season two plot is going to revolve around: finding other Mandalorians.

Season two looks set to pick up right where season one left off last winter, as Mando and Baby Yoda continue their journey across the galaxy to escape from the remnants of the Empire (particularly Giancarlo Esposito’s Dark Saber-wielding Moff Gideon) and find The Child’s species. While Mando obviously remains skeptical about traversing the stars to deliver The Child to a group of “enemy sorcerers”, as The Armorer reminds him in the season one finale, this is the way.
The upcoming batch of episodes is promising to be even bigger and better than the first season. Not only is iconic bounty hunter and fellow Mandalorian Boba Fett set to appear, but Rosario Dawson will star as the Jedi Ahsoka Tano, Timothy Olyphant joins the cast as Cobb Vanth, and WWE star Sasha Banks joins the cast to play Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian warrior that first appeared in the animated series Star Wars: Rebels.
The season two premiere of The Mandalorian will hit Disney+ on Friday, October 30. Make sure to subscribe to the Post-Credit Podcast, as we’ll be reviewing and recapping the new episodes every week.
