Disney has debuted the first look at MandalorianenSecond season just days after the announcement of the show returns on October 30th.
The trailer seems to pick up where the first season left off Mandalorianen got away with Mandalorian and Baby Yoda (or “the baby”) traveling across the galaxy. A voice over speaks eerily of “stories of the eons of the past,” describing great battles between the Mandalorian and “an orderer of wizards known as the Jedi.” Exciting!
Fans of Star Wars live-action series has been concerned that the show would not hit the previously announced release date in October. The coronavirus pandemic shut down production in an abundance of TV shows and movies around the world. But Disney CEO Bob Chapek has repeated several times over the past few months that Mandalorianen was still on schedule thanks to editing and post-production work that could be done remotely.
Mandalorianen have a great moment. The series helped land most of Disney Plus ̵
This is a great time for Disney to remind fans Mandalorianen coming. Disney has been criticized for not adding new and exciting titles to a fast enough clip – especially compared to its streaming rival Netflix, which releases new titles every week. Earlier this year, Disney also confirmed that one of the most anticipated Disney Plus live-action titles, Falk and winter soldier from Marvel Studios, is delayed.
Part of that is timing: Disney Plus was launched just a few months before the pandemic really settled down. Another factor is that Disney will not necessarily compete with the volume of Netflix’s production. If Disney can have one or two big shows and original movies from its tent pole franchises each quarter, subscribers may want to stick around and continue to pay the monthly fee. Nor is it as if Disney Plus hurts. The service hit 60 million subscribers last month – a milestone Disney predicted it would not hit until 2024.
Still to have MandalorianenSecond season should provide Star wars fans something to look forward to, while at the same time energizing people who have not touched Disney Plus since the first season, premiered in November 2019 to open the app and perhaps resume a lapse subscription.
