The Mandalorian

American television series

This article is about the television series. For the fictional group of people, see Mandalorians. For the title character, see The Mandalorian (character).

The Mandalorian is an American space Western television series created by Jon Favreau for the streaming service Disney+. It is the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise, beginning five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). It stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a lone bounty hunter who goes on the run after being hired to retrieve "The Child".

Star Wars creator George Lucas had begun developing a live-action Star Wars television series by 2009, but this project was deemed too expensive to produce. He sold Lucasfilm to Disney in October 2012. Subsequently, work on a new Star Wars series began for Disney+. Favreau signed on in March 2018, serving as writer and showrunner. He executive produces alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. The series' title was announced in October 2018, with filming starting at Manhattan Beach Studios in California. Visual effects company Industrial Light & Magic developed the StageCraft technology for the series, using virtual sets and a 360-degree video wall to create the series' environments. This has since been adopted by other film and television productions.

The Mandalorian premiered with the launch of Disney+ on November 12, 2019. The eight-episode first season was met with positive reviews, was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, and won seven Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. A second season premiered on October 30, 2020, and a third season, which is currently filming, is expected to be released in 2022. Several spin-off series will expand on the series' timeline, including The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka.

Premise[edit]

Beginning five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983) and the fall of the Galactic Empire,[1][2]The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin, a lone Mandalorian bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.[2] He is hired by remnant Imperial forces to retrieve the child Grogu, but instead goes on the run to protect the infant.[3][4] While looking to reunite Grogu with his kind, they are pursued by Moff Gideon, who wants to use Grogu's connection to the Force.[5][4]

Cast and characters[edit]

Main article: List of The Mandalorian characters

Pedro Pascal stars as Din Djarin, the series' title character and a lone bounty hunter.[2][6][7] Pascal compared the character to Clint Eastwood, with advanced combat skills and of "questionable moral character".[8] The character's real name is not given until "Chapter 8: Redemption", but Pascal accidentally revealed it early in November 2019.[7] His bounty in "Chapter 1: The Mandalorian" is "The Child"—colloquially known as "Baby Yoda" by audience members—an infant of the same species as Star Wars character Yoda. He is created with animatronics and puppetry, augmented with visual effects. He becomes the Mandalorian's ward,[3] and his name is revealed to be Grogu in "Chapter 13: The Jedi".[4]

The first season features several recurring co-stars, including Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, leader of a bounty hunter guild;[9][8]Werner Herzog as "The Client", an enigmatic man;[9][10]Omid Abtahi as Dr. Pershing, a scientist working for the client;[9][11]Nick Nolte as the voice of Kuiil, an Ugnaught moisture farmer who helps the Mandalorian;[12][13]Taika Waititi as the voice of IG-11, a bounty hunter droid;[14][8]Gina Carano as Cara Dune, a former Rebel shock trooper-turned-mercenary;[15][8]Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, a former officer of the Imperial Security Bureau;[9][16] and Emily Swallow as "The Armorer", a Mandalorian who forges armor and equipment from beskar steel.[9][17]

Esposito, Carano, Weathers, and Abtahi return for the second season.[5][18] Several actors appear as characters from previous Star Wars media, including Timothy Olyphant as Cobb Vanth,[19][20]Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett,[21][22]Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze,[23][24]Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano,[25][4] and Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker.[26] Other recurring co-stars for the second season include Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto, reprising her role from the first season;[20] Misty Rosas, who was the on-set performer for Kuiil in the first season, as the Frog Lady;[27]Mercedes Varnado as Koska Reeves;[24] and Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, also reprising her role from the first season.[22]

Background[edit]

Star Wars creator George Lucas began development on a live-action Star Wars television series known as Underworld in early 2009. More than 50 scripts were written for the series by 2012, but they were eventually deemed too expensive to produce.[28] In January 2013, ABC president Paul Lee stated that his network would be discussing potential live-action Star Wars television series with Lucasfilm after the latter had been sold by Lucas to ABC's parent company The Walt Disney Company in October 2012.[29] In November 2017, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that Disney and Lucasfilm were developing a live-action Star Wars television series for the new streaming service Disney+.[30]

Development[edit]

While working on The Lion King (2019), a photo-realistic remake of the 1994 animated film, in 2017, director Jon Favreau pitched an idea he had for a Star Wars television series to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. Kennedy suggested Favreau discuss the idea with Dave Filoni, executive producer on the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.[31] Favreau and Filoni had met at the Skywalker Ranch when Favreau was working on Iron Man (2008) and Filoni was working on the first season of The Clone Wars, and Favreau subsequently voiced the Mandalorian character Pre Vizsla in The Clone Wars for Filoni.[8] When Favreau met with Filoni about his series idea, the latter drew a doodle of a baby of the same species as the Star Wars character Yoda which became "The Child".[31] Favreau wanted to explore the "scum and villainy" of the Star Wars universe following the events of the film Return of the Jedi (1983).[8] He began spending several hours at the end of each day developing the series while he was directing The Lion King.[31]

Lucasfilm announced that Favreau would write and executive produce a new Star Wars series for Disney+ in March 2018. Kennedy added that the series was an opportunity for a diverse group of writers and directors to be hired to create Star Wars stories, after the franchise's films had been criticized for being written and directed solely by white men.[32] In May, Favreau stated that he had written scripts for four of the series' eight episodes before being officially hired for the project.[33] On October 3, Favreau announced that the series was titled The Mandalorian and revealed the premise for the show.[2] The following day, Lucasfilm announced that Filoni, Kennedy, and Colin Wilson would executive produce the series alongside Favreau, with Karen Gilchrist acting as co-executive producer.[34] The series premiere was set to be available with the launch of Disney+ in November 2019.[35] Star Pedro Pascal described the series as taking the space Western undertones from the Star Wars films "and infusing it with steroids".[36]

In July 2019, Favreau confirmed that there would be a second season of the series and that he had begun writing it.[37] Iger announced in February 2020 that the second season would premiere that October.[38] By late April, Favreau had been writing a third season for "a while" and further development on the season was beginning.[39] In September, co-star Giancarlo Esposito said the second season would "start to lay the groundwork for the depth and breadth that's going to come in season 3 and season 4, where you’re really gonna start to get answers."[40]

Casting[edit]

In November 2018, Pedro Pascal was confirmed to be portraying the Mandalorian after being rumored to be cast in the role for some time.[6] Pascal initially thought he was being cast as the Star Wars character Boba Fett due to the visual similarities between that character and the Mandalorian,[41] but the latter is actually a separate character named Din Djarin.[7] Favreau called Pascal "a classic movie star" who "had the presence and skill[s]" necessary to portray a character largely concealed under a helmet.[42] The Mandalorian is also portrayed by stunt doubles Brendan Wayne and Lateef Crowder.[43] Pascal worked with Favreau and Filoni to record the character's dialogue later.[44][42]

In February 2021, Lucasfilm said Gina Carano, a recurring co-star during the first two seasons, was no longer employed by the company. This came after Carano made a social media post comparing being a Republican in the United States to the treatment of Jewish people during the Holocaust, with Lucasfilm saying the post was "abhorrent and unacceptable".[45] Carano had been repeatedly warned about her social media posts by Lucasfilm executives who reportedly had been looking for a reason to fire her for two months. The February 2021 posts were "the final straw", and the decision to fire the actress was made by Lucasfilm executives rather than Favreau.[45][46] The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek said Carano was fired because her posts did not align with the values of Disney, which he said were "universal" and not political.[47]The Hollywood Reporter reported that Carano's role of Cara Dune was not expected to be recast, though industry insiders felt that was still a possibility due to story and merchandising reasons.[46]

Filming[edit]

The series is filmed at Manhattan Beach Studios in California.[3] Filoni directed the series' first episode, making his live-action directorial debut,[34][48] with Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika Waititi also directing for the first season.[34] Filoni,[49] Howard,[50] and Famuyiwa returned for the second season,[51] and were joined by Favreau (who was unable to direct during the first season due to his commitment to The Lion King),[48]Peyton Reed,[52] co-star Carl Weathers, and Robert Rodriguez.[52] Weathers will direct again in the third season.

New technology[edit]

Visual effects studio Industrial Light & Magic, a subsidiary of Lucasfilm, opened a new division in November 2018 called ILM TV, specifically intended for episodic and streaming television. Based in London with support from ILM's San Francisco, Vancouver, and Singapore locations, one of the first projects for the new division was The Mandalorian.[55] While directing The Jungle Book (2016), Favreau had used large screens on set to create interactive lighting so when live action footage was combined with a digital environment in post-production the effect would be more realistic. He found the process to be effective, but time-consuming.[56] When he began working on The Lion King, Favreau worked with visual effects vendor Moving Picture Company, technology developer Magnopus, and the game engine software Unity to develop a new virtual camera system that allowed him to film scenes in a virtual reality environment as if he was filming with physical cameras. For The Lion King, the results of the virtual photography were then rendered by MPC as final animation for the film.[3] On The Mandalorian, Favreau wanted to use the virtual technology to aid live action photography and also develop the video wall system.[3][56] ILM partnered with video game developer Epic Games to create a new system named StageCraft based on Epic's game engine Unreal Engine. StageCraft consists of large LED video screens on which digital environments can be rendered in real time for actors to perform in front of.[57][3]

During pre-production, the virtual photography process developed for The Lion King was used to plan the series' filming and determine what environments would be needed on set. The digital environments were then created by ILM and added to StageCraft ready for live action photography with the actors. Some of these environments were based on location photography in countries such as Iceland and Chile, on which Favreau said, "The actors aren't brought on location. The location is brought to the actors."[3] The environments were designed by the series' visual art department, led by Lucasfilm's creative director Doug Chiang and production designer Andrew L. Jones.[58] During filming, the digital environments were rendered on a video wall in real time, allowing the filmmakers and actors to see the environments.[57] ILM used a smaller version of the technology for Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018), but on The Mandalorian they utilized a 21-foot-tall (6.4 m) set that was 75 feet (23 m) in diameter, surrounded by a 360-degree semicircular LED video wall and ceiling. The Manhattan Beach Studios set is referred to as a "volume", which is traditionally the name for motion capture stages.[57][3] Favreau's initial intention was to use the video wall as a way to provide realistic interactive lighting for the actors, with a section of the screen behind the actors displaying a green screen so a higher quality version of the background could be added in post-production. During filming tests with the technology, the team realized that the Unreal Engine could render visuals fast enough that they could have the background move in relation to the camera. This allowed the system to maintain the appearance of parallax, where the environment would appear differently based on the angle it was being looked at just as a real 3D environment would. This effect causes some distortion to the image on the video wall, but looks like a real environment when viewed through the camera.[56] The images rendered on the video wall in real time were often of a high enough quality to be used as final effects when filmed on set.[57]

Physical elements were added to the volume to match the digital backgrounds, such as dirt on the floor to match dirt displayed on the video wall.[56] Interior spaces were also created, such as an office used by Imperial agents where the walls and ceiling were displayed on the video wall around a physical table.[57] The production had several physical sections of the Razor Crest, the Mandalorian's ship, that could be placed within the volume, such as having the front half of the ship physically built and the back half rendered digitally.[56][57] The environments could be manipulated in StageCraft on set as required, allowing the filmmakers to request changes to the environment and have them rendered on the video wall on the same day.[57] The production was able to change between environments within half an hour, or even faster if the physical elements within the volume were not visible and did not need to be changed.[56] One of the primary advantages of using the video wall technology was the realistic lighting, with the wall providing ambient light and accurate reflections on the actors. This was especially important for the Mandalorian, who wears reflective armor. Traditionally, on a production using green screen, the visual effects team would have to remove the green reflections from a reflective character or object in post-production, and then add new reflections that matched the digital environment. Using StageCraft, the reflections in the Mandalorian's armor were already correct on set. It also allowed for the series' cinematographers to light scenes in a way that would match the background, rather than lighting the set and hoping the digital background would match in post-production as they would have to do with green screen. A technique used by the production to ensure the lighting from the video wall looked natural was to have the actors in shadow, with light from the environment behind them, often creating silhouettes.[56]

Music[edit]

Composer Ludwig Göransson was recommended by several of his previous collaborators to Favreau, including directors Ryan Coogler and Anthony and Joe Russo, and musician Donald Glover. Favreau knew that music would be important to the series due to the impact of John Williams' score on the Star Wars films, but also wanted the music of the series to be different from the films. He wanted the series to sound "a little grittier, a little edgier and a little more tech-oriented".[59] Göransson first met with Favreau in November 2018,[60] when Favreau showed the composer concept art for the series and discussed his inspirations for the story and tone, including Western and samurai films. They also discussed how they felt when they first heard Williams' Star Wars music, and Göransson set out to recreate those feelings and "capture the soul of what Star Wars is" but in a new way.[61]

Göransson was announced as composer for the series in December 2018.[62] The basis of the main theme was created from Göransson experimenting with a bass recorder, digitally manipulating it to make it more "futuristic". Guitars, a piano, drums, and synthesizers are also featured in the main theme.[61] A 70-piece orchestra was used for the first season,[59][60] combined with recordings of Göransson playing the main instruments which he augmented with synthesizers and other digital manipulation.[60]Walt Disney Records released a soundtrack album for each episode of the first season.[60] Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, orchestra players were recorded remotely or in smaller, distant groups for the second season.[5] Two albums were released for the second season, each covering four episodes of the season.[63][64]

Themes[edit]

Parenting and fatherhood[edit]

One of the primary themes of The Mandalorian is parenting and fatherhood, particularly through the father–son relationship dynamic between the Din Djarin and the Child.[65][66][67] Ryan Britt of Fatherly wrote that this is unusual in Star Wars stories, and that past examples of parenting in the franchise have tended to be poor ones, from the murderous Darth Vader, father of Luke Skywalker, to the neglectful Galen Erso, father of Jyn Erso in Rogue One (2016).[65] Britt wrote: "For years the Star Wars franchise avoided depicting a parent-child dynamic. With Mando and Baby Yoda, that's finally changing."[65] The dynamic between Kuiil and IG-11 also reflect the childrearing theme in The Mandalorian. The two have a relationship similar to that of a father and son, as demonstrated in the scene in which Kuiil teaches IG-11 how to operate and function after the droid is reprogrammed.[68]

Vulture writer Kathryn VanArendonk argued that parenting has been the subject of past Star Wars stories, but almost always during later stages of parenthood, rather than an infant in early stages such as the Child. As examples, she cited Obi-Wan Kenobi serving as a mentor to the adolescent Anakin Skywalker, Princess Leia lamenting over her grown son Kylo Ren, or the absence of Rey's parents.[69] Britt argued strong parental examples in Star Wars are important because the franchise is so often associated with the childhoods of its fans.[65]The Mandalorian particularly highlights the challenges of being a single parent,[66][67] and a working parent, as the Mandalorian struggles to continue his day job as a bounty hunter and mercenary while serving as the sole caretaker of the Child.[69][67] Richard Newby of The Hollywood Reporter described the show as "the adventures of a single dad looking for a job".[70] Several reviewers have compared the dynamic between the Child and the Mandalorian to Lone Wolf and Cub, a manga about a samurai warrior and his young son.[71][72][73][74] Favreau acknowledged Lone Wolf and Cub as an influence in an episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.[75]

The Mandalorian's parental role in the series makes him a softer and more relatable character;[76] he changes in a positive way because of raising the Child, becoming less selfish and self-absorbed.[77] He risked his life and drastically changed his career as a bounty hunter to accept his responsibility as the Child's caretaker and guardian,[66][67] marking a significant parental sacrifice.[67] When the Mandalorian seeks work to earn money, he is now doing so to provide not only for himself, but for the Child as well.[66] We see several examples of the Mandalorian parenting the Child throughout the series, such as when he stops the Child from pressing random buttons in the cockpit of the Mandalorian's spaceship, ultimately by holding him in his lap.[65] In another example, the Mandalorian establishes a car seat for the Child in the cockpit of his ship, so he can be seated safely and comfortably during their travels.[78]

The relationship between the Mandalorian and the Child is an example of unexpected fatherhood.[69][77] The Mandalorian feels a connection and parental bond with the Child because of his own childhood, when he was orphaned upon the death of his parents and was adopted by the Mandalorian culture as a "foundling".[69] Nevertheless, fatherhood is not a role the Mandalorian initially seeks, and he makes repeated initial attempts to avoid this responsibility. He first does so in "Chapter 3: The Sin", when he first leaves the Child with the Client.[77] He does so again in "Chapter 4: Sanctuary", when he plans to leave the Child with Omera, a protective mother on the planet Sorgan, who is willing to take the Child into her own family. The Mandalorian does not fully commit to the role of fatherhood until the first-season finale, "Chapter 8: Redemption", when the Child himself is also adopted into the Mandalorian culture as a "foundling" and the Mandalorian is formally declared to be his father figure.[69] He nonetheless continues to search for what he feels may be a more appropriate guardian for the Child, as in the second season's fifth episode, "The Jedi", in which he seeks to leave him with Ahsoka Tano.[79]

Several writers suggested the fact that the Mandalorian's face is concealed has a tabula rasa effect and his anonymity allows viewers to see and imagine themselves as parents.[65][66] Britt said this "allow(s) us to dream about what arsenal we might deploy to protect our children".[65] However, Singer said the show's setting in space make the challenges of child-rearing seem more exciting and exotic than they might otherwise be.[66] Anthony Breznican of Vanity Fair has noted that none of the day-to-day difficulties of parenthood are portrayed in the series: "There is no shrill squawking from Baby Yoda, no tantrum, no spit-up, no uncontrollable shrieking that burrows into a parent's psyche like a dentist's drill shredding a soft, pink nerve."[80] Likewise, Vulture writer Kathryn VanArendonk said the show ignores or does not address many parenting details that make fatherhood difficult, such as what the Child eats, when he goes to sleep, and whether he wears diapers. She wrote: "The Mandalorian is uninterested in diapers, and so Mando gets to be a very particular image of fatherhood: the guy who doesn't have to sweat the small stuff."[69] VanAnderonk described this as a wish fulfillment fantasy for parents or prospective parents: "a vision of parenting stripped so thoroughly of all detail and specificity that all that's left are archetypes: the parent, the child".[69]

The Child encounters a handful of other protector figures throughout the first season, including Omera, IG-11, and Peli Motto.[69] Some observers have criticized the series for the fact that the Mandalorian repeatedly leaves the Child alone or in the hands of relative strangers,[66] as well as for making decisions that place the Child in danger. One example is in "Chapter 6: The Prisoner", when he allows a team of dangerous mercenaries to use his ship while the Child is on board, nearly resulting in the Child's death.[66][81] An interaction the Mandalorian has with Peli Motto in "Chapter 5: The Gunslinger" is one of the most overt discussions about the challenges of caring for the Child. When the Mandalorian accidentally wakes the child, who had been sleeping in Peli's arms, she chides him: "Do you have any idea how long it took me to get it to sleep?"[69] She also condemns the Mandalorian for leaving the child alone on the ship, saying: "you have an awful lot to learn about raising a young one".[82]ScreenCrush writer Matt Singer argued the Mandalorian's parenting errors makes the show that much more appealing because making mistakes is a large part of being a parent.[66] Eileen Chase of Today echoed this: "He is not an ideal parent, just like the rest of us who have to balance parenting and work."[67]

Good and evil; nature versus nurture[edit]

The nature of good and evil and the question of nature versus nurture is raised repeatedly throughout The Mandalorian, perhaps most overtly through by Kuiil's reprogramming of IG-11 from a bounty hunter to a nurse droid and protector.[83][84] Even after IG-11 is reprogrammed, the Mandalorian does not believe he has truly changed, because he believes droids have an essential nature and that IG-11's nature remains murderous and untrustworthy.[85] But in reprogramming IG-11, Kuiil nurtures him and helps him to change; Kuiil feels that in the process of learning how to function again, IG-11 gained a new personality.[86] Kuiil insists to the Mandalorian: "Droids are not good or bad — they are neutral reflections of those who program them."[84] Keith Phipps of Vulture wrote of IG-11 and the nature versus nurture theme: "He's not bad. He's just programmed that way, and with care and change he can do a lot of good in the world."[83]

The Kuiil and IG-11 scenes also demonstrate that the way in which the "child" character is raised makes a significant difference in whether the child becomes an asset or a threat to those around him. The droid was a dangerous assassin before Kuiil reprogrammed him, but thanks to the Ugnaught's parenting, he becomes a protector and helper instead.[68] Some writers have likewise suggested the Child is not inherently good or evil,[84][87] but that instead, like all children, he is impressionable and does not fully understand the events occurring around him. He is learning about the world around him and needs guidance as he develops his abilities.[81][84][88] It will largely fall to the Mandalorian to provide this guidance,[81] as when the Mandalorian stops him from strangling Cara Dune.[84]

However, multiple writers have questioned whether the violent acts the Child has repeatedly witnessed throughout The Mandalorian are having a negative impact on his development, and that he is learning to become violent himself as a result.[84][89] Phipps wrote of this: "That look of wonder in the Child's eyes as IG-11 kills and kills again is hilarious, but also a little chilling."[83] One particular scene in "Chapter 7: The Reckoning" led many reviewers and fans to question whether the Child may be demonstrating evil tendencies. During a scene on the Mandalorian's spaceship, the Child observes as the Mandalorian and Cara Dune engage in a friendly arm wrestling match. During the contest, the Child uses the Force to choke Cara, nearly strangling her before the Mandalorian intervened.[87][88][89] Throughout the Star Wars franchise, that ability has been most commonly associated with the Dark Side of the Force, particularly Darth Vader.[89][90][91]

Sarah Bea Milner of Screen Rant wrote: "The moment is genuinely shocking — and more than a little disturbing."[84] Some reviewers noted, however, that the Child likely mistakenly believed the Mandalorian was in danger and intervened to help.[91][92] Additionally, in the same episode, the Child uses Force healing to save Greef Karga, a power typically associated with the Light Side.[84][87][92] Nevertheless, some writers have suggested viewers had been underestimating the Child's capacity for evil because he is so adorable.[91][90][93] Fans speculated the Child could be presenting a false personality or using the Force to manipulate people into caring about him to help ensure his survival.[89] However, Caitlin Gallagher of Bustle suggested rather than building toward making the Child evil, the show could be suggesting the Mandalorian needs to find a way to raise the Child in a less violent environment.[89]

Release[edit]

The Mandalorian premiered on the streaming service Disney+ on its United States launch day, November 12, 2019.[35] The second season premiered on October 30, 2020.[38] The third season is expected to be released in 2022.[94]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

For the first season, the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 93% approval rating with an average rating of 7.96/10 based on 36 reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, "Action-packed and expertly-crafted—if at times a bit too withholding—The Mandalorian is a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe that benefits greatly from the cuteness of its cargo."[95]Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 70 out of 100 for the season, based on reviews from 29 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[96]

For the second season, Rotten Tomatoes reported a 94% approval rating with an average score of 8.54/10, based on 25 reviews.

Accolades[edit]

The Mandalorian has been nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards and thirty-three Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards (winning fourteen Creative Arts Emmys),[99] as well as one British Academy Television Award,[100] one Critics' Choice Television Award,[101] one Directors Guild of America Award,[102] one Golden Globe Award,[103] four Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards (winning one),[104] three Hugo Awards,[105] three MTV Movie & TV Awards,[106] one Producers Guild of America Award,[107] two TCA Awards,[108] nineteen Visual Effects Society Awards (winning five),[109] and one Writers Guild of America Award,[110] among others.

Industry impact[edit]

The Mandalorian was the first production to be filmed using real time rendering for realistic, parallax environments.[56] Favreau believed that the StageCraft technology developed for the series would have a significant impact on the production of films and television series moving forward.[57] He attributed the breakthroughs made with the technology to the support of Kathleen Kennedy, who was in charge of both Lucasfilm and ILM, as well as to his own drive for innovation, and to previous work done by George Lucas on new technology for the Star Wars films. Favreau also acknowledged that much of the technology involved in StageCraft is not proprietary and is readily available to others, it just had not been combined in this way before.[56] Favreau invited other filmmakers and studios to visit the series' set and see how the new technology was being used, noting that Lucas and other filmmakers such as James Cameron had done the same when they had been working on innovative film projects. Favreau added that the companies working on the series' new technologies—including ILM, Epic, and MPC—were being encouraged to share their work and develop the technology further beyond the requirements of the series.[3] Several actors working on the series, including Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito, gave high praise to the technology and the way it allowed them to act within the environment rather than pretend in front of green screen.[56] After learning lessons about the technology during production on the first season of The Mandalorian, ILM was able to make several advancements beginning with the second season. This included transitioning StageCraft to a fully in-house product utilizing ILM's own game engine, Helios, rather than Epic's Unreal Engine.[58] In February 2020, ILM announced that it was making its StageCraft technology available to all filmmakers and production studios as a complete end-to-end solution,[57] and that December, it was announced that three additional StageCraft volumes–in Los Angeles, London, and Australia–were being built.[111]

Spin-offs[edit]

In November 2019, Walt Disney Studios CCO Alan Horn said if the series was successful, a film featuring the Mandalorian could be developed.[112] The next month, Favreau said there was an opportunity to explore the series' characters in other Star Wars films or television series.[3] Bob Iger said in February 2020 that spin-offs of The Mandalorian were being considered, and there was potential to add more characters to the series with the intention of then giving them their own series.[113] Favreau said in October that as more characters are introduced in the series, "we are beginning to explore where we could go". He felt Lucasfilm could be "more responsive" to audience reactions in determining potential spin-offs due to the faster production time for television series than films. Favreau looked to his experience working in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where smaller stories exist within the larger narrative, as a potential guide for spin-offs. Additionally, both Favreau and Pascal were open to the idea of the Mandalorian appearing in a Star Wars film, but Favreau was in "no rush" to do this.[114] In December 2020, the spin-off series Rangers of the New Republic, Ahsoka, and The Book of Boba Fett were announced,[115][116][117] with all three series developed by Favreau and Filoni, set within The Mandalorian's timeline, and planned to culminate in a "climactic story event".[118]Rangers of the New Republic was not in active development by May 2021.[119]

The Book of Boba Fett[edit]

Main article: The Book of Boba Fett

A spin-off miniseries focused on Boba Fett was reported in November 2020.[120] It was officially announced as The Book of Boba Fett a month later, and was already in production by that point. Favreau, Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez executive produce, with Morrison and Wen reprising their respective roles as Fett and Fennec Shand. The series will debut in December 2021.[117]

Ahsoka[edit]

A limited series titled Ahsoka, featuring Dawson reprising her role as Ahsoka Tano, was revealed in December 2020 with Filoni writing and executive producing alongside Favreau.[116]

Other media[edit]

Documentary series[edit]

A documentary series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, features interviews with the cast and crew of The Mandalorian, behind-the-scenes footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by Favreau that explore the production of the series. The first season premiered on Disney+ on May 4, 2020, Star Wars Day.[121] An hour-long special covering the second season was released on December 25, 2020,[122] with a second special episode covering the season two finale released on August 25, 2021.[123]

Publishing[edit]

Lucasfilm announced a publishing campaign of tie-in books and comics for the series in June 2020. The campaign was announced to include The Art of The Mandalorian (Season One) by Phil Szostak, an original adult novel written by Adam Christopher and published by Del Rey Books, a visual guide written by Pablo Hidalgo and published by DK, a junior novelization of the first season written by Joe Schreiber, and comic books inspired by the series to be published by Marvel Comics and IDW.[124] One month later, the novel by Adam Christopher was delayed from December 2020 to November 2021, before both it and the visual guide by Pablo Hidalgo were cancelled in March 2021.[125][126]

Video games[edit]

In November 2020, Minecraft released a Star Wars-themed downloadable content, which included locations and characters from The Mandalorian.[127] Din Djarin and Grogu appear as unlockable cosmetics in Zero Point, Fortnite Battle Royale's Chapter 2 event. Djarin's sniper rifle and jetpack were also available as playable items.[128]

The Mandalorian Season 2, Episode 4 Cast & Cameos Guide

Warning: Contains SPOILERS for The Mandalorian season 2, episode 4, "Chapter 12: The Siege."

The cast for The Mandalorian season 2, episode 4, "Chapter 12: The Seige" brings back several familiar characters from season 1, as well as some fresh faces who cameo.

Unfortunately, the Razor Crest was so badly wrecked they needed to make a pit stop in Nevarro where they can have it fixed. This paved the way for more The Mandalorian appearances from Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) and Cara Dune (Gina Carano).

List of episodes

The second season of the American television series The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a bounty hunter trying to return "The Child" to his people, the Jedi. It is part of the Star Wars franchise, set after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). The season was produced by Lucasfilm, Fairview Entertainment, and Golem Creations, with Jon Favreau serving as showrunner.

Development on a second season of The Mandalorian had begun by July 2019, with Favreau looking to expand the scope of the series and introduce new characters; several characters from previous Star Wars media appear in the season. Filming took place from October 2019 to March 2020, finishing days before the COVID-19 pandemic forced film and television productions to shut down. Post-production was completed remotely, including the recording of composer Ludwig Göransson's score.

The eight-episode season premiered on the streaming service Disney+ on October 30, 2020, and ran until December 18, 2020. A third season has been announced.[1]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

In July 2019, The Mandalorian creator and showrunner Jon Favreau confirmed that there would be a second season of the series. He had already begun writing the new season, and pre-production was underway.[12] It consists of eight episodes. There were fewer start-up costs for the second season, allowing more of the season's budget to be allocated to each episode than has been possible during the first season.[2]Disney CEO Bob Iger announced in February 2020 that the second season would premiere that October.[13]

Rick Famuyiwa was returning as a director by August 2019, but Taika Waititi was not expected to return due to a scheduling conflict with his film Next Goal Wins.[14] A month later, Favreau said he would direct an episode of the second season, after being unable to direct any of the first due to his commitments to The Lion King (2019).[15] At the end of October, Carl Weathers was confirmed to be directing for the season; Favreau had promised that Weathers could direct a second-season episode when hiring the actor to co-star in the first season.Dave Filoni had returned as director for the second season by March 2020.[17] On May 4, Star Wars Day, Robert Rodriguez and Peyton Reed revealed that they had also directed episodes of the second season.[18] Rodriguez was not originally intended to direct in the season, joining as a last-minute replacement.[19] That June, Bryce Dallas Howard revealed that she had also returned to direct an episode of the second season.[20]

Writing[edit]

The season begins "very directly" after the end of the first season, with the Mandalorian protecting "The Child" and searching for its home. Favreau said the second season would introduce a larger story, with the episodes being "less isolated" than many of the first season's episodes were, though he said each episode of the second season would still have "its own flavor". He added that the new characters introduced in the second season would come with new storylines, allowing the series to begin to explore stories other than the Mandalorian's. Favreau was inspired by the multiple different storylines of Game of Thrones, an approach that he described as "very appealing to me as an audience member".[2]

Casting[edit]

Pedro Pascal stars in the series as Din Djarin, the Mandalorian. Also returning from the first season are recurring co-stars Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon and Gina Carano as Cara Dune,[2] in addition to Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto,[4]Carl Weathers as Greef Karga,[2]Horatio Sanz as a Mythrol,[9]Omid Abtahi as Dr. Pershing,[8]Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand,[5] and Bill Burr as Migs Mayfeld.[10] Filoni reprises his role as X-Wing pilot Trapper Wolf, while Paul Sun-Hyung Lee portrays the pilot Carson Teva.[6]

Timothy Olyphant

Temuera Morrison

Katee Sackhoff

Rosario Dawson

Mark Hamill

Matthew Wood

Olyphant, Morrison, Sackhoff, Dawson, Hamill, and Wood all portray characters from previous Star Wars media in the season

In March 2020, Rosario Dawson was reported to be appearing as Ahsoka Tano in the second season.[21][3] This marks the character's first live-action appearance after previously appearing in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels and having a voice-only role in the film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019); the character was voiced by Ashley Eckstein in these appearances. Dawson had previously expressed interest in taking on the role in live-action after her casting was suggested by a fan in February 2017.[21] Also in March, Michael Biehn joined the cast as Lang, an enforcer.[22][3] That May, Temuera Morrison was set to reprise his role as Boba Fett in the second season.[23][5] Morrison portrayed Boba's father Jango Fett in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002), and went on to provide the voice of Boba in various Star Wars media.[23] Before Morrison's involvement was confirmed, the character briefly appeared in the first-season episode "Chapter 5: The Gunslinger".[24] Also in May, Katee Sackhoff was revealed to be reprising her role of Bo-Katan Kryze in the second season after previously voicing the character in The Clone Wars and Rebels,[25][7] and Timothy Olyphant was revealed to be in the season as well.[26] He portrays Cobb Vanth, a character from the Star Wars: Aftermath novels who wears Boba Fett's armor.[27][4] In September 2020, Mercedes Varnado was revealed to have been cast in the season;[28] she appears as the Mandalorian Koska Reeves, a member of the Nite Owls.[7] In the season finale, the character Luke Skywalker appears along with his droid R2-D2;[29]Mark Hamill reprises his role from the Star Wars films, digitally de-aged to portray a younger version of Skywalker, with Max Lloyd Jones serving as an on-set body double for the character.[11] Additionally, Matthew Wood reprises his role as Bib Fortuna from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999).[30]

Filming[edit]

The capabilities of Industrial Light & Magic's StageCraft technology were increased from season one, with the "volume" set also expanded for the season.[31][32] Filming for the season began on October 7, 2019,[14][33] once again using the working titleHuckleberry.[34][35] Favreau directed the season premiere. There was "heightened secrecy" surrounding the second season, with actors only receiving scripts for the episodes they were in and being brought to set in hooded cloaks.[2] Additionally, many of the cast and crew were unaware that the Jedi that appears in the final episode of the season would be Luke Skywalker.[36] As he did for the first season,[37]Star Wars creator George Lucas visited the set while Filoni was directing for the second season.[2]

Sam Hargrave served as second unit director for the season. Hargrave said Favreau was "looking for someone... who has experience with action" and that he "wanted to build on" what was done in season one, while bringing in "a new perspective and [taking] it to another level" for season two.[38] Pascal was able to portray the Mandalorian more on set this season than the last, when his other commitments resulted in stunt doubles Brendan Wayne and Lateef Crowder portraying the character at times;[39] Both Wayne and Crowder returned for the season.[40][35] Additional filming took place on location in Simi Valley, California for sequences in "Chapter 14: The Tragedy".[34]

Filming for the season wrapped on March 8, 2020.[17] This was described as "fortuitous" as it was just four days before film and television productions around the world were shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic still impacted post-production for the season.[2]

Music[edit]

Composer Ludwig Göransson was able to take advantage of the emotional attachment that the audience developed with his musical themes during the first season, which gave him the ability to "immediately give them what they want, or play the themes with different harmonies or different instrumentation, and people will instantly recognize it".[41] Göransson uses the series' main theme "in a lot of new and different iterations" in the second season.[42] He explained that the Mandalorian's theme was primarily played on the recorder during the first season to emphasize his "lone man's journey", but was played on guitar in some flashbacks to the character's childhood. In the second season, the theme is primarily played on electric guitar to show the character's new confidence and relationship with Grogu. Göransson uses an Ibanez eight-string electric guitar for this.[41]

Göransson introduces new musical themes for each episode in the season, with new sounds and ideas, as each episode has a different genre, setting, and characters.[42][41] He uses a "rock 'n' roll, heavy metal mood" in "Chapter 9: The Marshal" as an homage to the music Ennio Morricone wrote for Sergio Leone's Western films. "Chapter 10: The Passenger" prominently features Göransson's theme for Grogu, which he wrote during development on the first season. It is played on a Fender Rhodes electric piano, which Göransson compared to John Williams' use of the glockenspiel and celeste in the Star Wars films to create a "storybook or magical feeling".[41] For Bo-Katan's introduction in "Chapter 11: The Heiress", Göransson used distorted synthesizer sounds to create an industrial sound that matched the character's "speed and energy". His theme for Boba Fett also uses distorted sounds, inspired by sound effects that Rodriguez added to his initial cut of "Chapter 14: The Tragedy". The first season does not feature any references to Williams' original themes, but there were a lot of conversations between Göransson and the producers about how to "flirt with the Star Wars themes a little bit" in the second season, leading to several inclusions: Göransson references Williams' theme for Yoda in "Chapter 13: The Jedi" when that character is mentioned, and he reprises Williams' theme for The Force when Skywalker appears in "Chapter 16: The Rescue". He also uses Kevin Kiner's theme for Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars for scenes with that character.

The biggest challenge for the season's post-production team was recording Göransson's orchestral score during the COVID-19 pandemic.[2] The series was one of the first to use the 20th Century Fox scoring stage when it allowed recordings again. Thirty string players were recorded there for the first seven episodes, with the players wearing masks and spaced six feet apart. The final episode increased the string players to forty, while also adding over a dozen brass and woodwind players. To comply with health regulations and musician union rules, the strings were recorded on separate days from the brass and woodwinds.[42] Additional musicians were recorded remotely and combined with the scoring stage recordings,[2] as well as recordings of Göransson playing the guitar, recorder, piano, bass, rock drums, and synthesizers.[41] Recording took place from July to September 2020.[42]

Unlike the first season, where an album of music was released for each episode, Walt Disney Records released the soundtrack for the second season in two volumes: music from "Chapter 9" through "Chapter 12" was released on November 20, 2020, with a second soundtrack for "Chapter 13" through "Chapter 16" released on December 18.[44][45]

The Mandalorian: Every Character and Celebrity Cameo So Far

The Mandalorian continues to add new characters to the Star Wars universe. The regular cast for Season 1 included our Mandalorian hero (revealed to be named Din Djarin), Gina Carano's Cara Dune, and Internet darling Baby Yoda, but Season 1 was also full of celebrity cameos like Bill Burr, Matt Lanter, Richard Ayoade, and Jason Sudeikis, and Season 2 continued that trend with the likes of Timothy Olyphant, Michael Biehn, and Sasha Banks.Now that The Mandalorian Season 2 has finished airing, we can look back at the impressive array of celebrity cameos and returning characters who have joined the series so far - from live-action versions of fan-favorite Star Wars animated characters Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan Kryze to the original Jango Fett, Temuera Morrison and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.

Previously, we put together a breakdown of all the major cast members and notable cameos in The Mandalorian Season 1. We've now updated it with all the new characters who debuted in Season 2. Check out the slideshow below or scroll down for more.

Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian (aka Din Djarin)

Pedro Pascal stars in The Mandalorian. The actor previously spilled that the mysterious Mandalorian's real name is Din Djarin, which was confirmed in episode 8. He's a lone gunfighter making his way in a lawless corner of the galaxy five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and the protector of Grogu, a mysterious creature fans initially called Baby Yoda. This Mandalorian hero has a look inspired by Boba Fett's original appearance in the Star Wars Holiday Special.

Comedian Horatio Sanz (SNL) plays an alien character named Mythrol. Mythrol is the Mandalorian's very first bounty target in the series, and his nosy personality gets him a one-way trip into a carbon freezer. He reappears in episode 4 of Season 2, and he's just as chatty.

Carl Weathers as Greef Karga

Carl Weathers (Predator) plays Greef Karga, the grizzled leader of a bounty-hunting guild who has a long-standing relationship with the Mandalorian. It's Karga who arranges the mission that forms the backbone of Season 1's plot, serving as ally, antagonist, and ally again over the course of the first season. He's now Magistrate of Nevarro, helping keep order alongside Marshal Cara Dune, but he's always willing to join Mando on a mission.

Werner Herzog as "The Client"

Werner Herzog plays "The Client." Herzog is easily the most intriguing cast member, as he's generally more known for his directing work than acting. Here he plays an intimidating Imperial warlord with a regiment of Stormtrooper bodyguards who hires the Mandalorian and sets the events of Season 1 in motion.

Grogu, aka The Child

A team of puppeteers are tasked with bringing this adorable character to life. While initially known as The Child, Baby Yoda's real name was revealed as Grogu in Season 2, episode 5. Despite his infantile appearance and personality, The Child is actually 50 years old. He's a member of the same species as Jedi Masters Yoda and Yaddle and seems to share their affinity for the Force. The Mandalorian is hired to track down and retrieve The Child in the first episode, but he finds himself torn between a desire for a big reward and his firm Mandalorian code of ethics.

Brian Posehn as the Speeder Pilot

Comedian Brian Posehn appears in the first episode of The Mandalorian as a speeder pilot who transports Mando back to the Razor Crest on a clunky speeder because of Mando's aversion to droid drivers.

Omid Abtahi as Doctor Pershing

Omid Abtahi (American Gods) plays Doctor Pershing, who works with Werner Herzog's unnamed warlord and later Moff Gideon. Pershing's uniform suggests he may be connected to the cloners of Kamino, which hints at his intentions for "The Child." He reappears in Season 2, still overseeing mysterious experiments on behalf of Moff Gideon, before ultimately helping Mando and his team break in to rescue Grogu from Gideon's Imperial cruiser.

Emily Swallow as the Armorer

Emily Swallow (Supernatural) plays the Armorer, who forges new pieces of Beskar armor for Mando and seems to exert control over the other members of their underground Mandalorian community.

Nick Nolte as Kuiil

Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder) provides the voice of Kuiil, an Ugnaught character who roams the solitary dunes of his remote world and seemingly has great reverence for the Mandalorian warriors of old. He died protecting Grogu in Season 1, but he'll live on through his memorable catchphrase, "I have spoken."

Taika Waititi as IG-11

Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) voiced the assassin droid named IG-11. IG-11 was the Mandalorian's short-term partner in the first episode and later returned after Kuiiil reprogrammed him as a nurse droid to protect Baby Yoda, ultimately sacrificing himself for Mando's crew. Initially, fans assumed Waititi was playing IG-88, one of the bounty hunters hired by Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back, since IG-11 looked nearly identical.

Jon Favreau as Paz Vizla

The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau also has a guest role in the series as the voice of Mandalorian warrior Paz Vizla. Paz is initially hostile toward Pascal's character, but comes to respect him as a true Mandalorian. Favreau also voiced a character named Pre Vizla in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and we wouldn't be surprised if Paz is his descendant.

Gina Carano as Cara Dune



Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6) plays Cara Dune. Dune is a former Rebel shock trooper struggling to return to civilian life after the end of the Galactic Civil War. She butts heads with Mando on the remote world or Sorgan but later joins him in defending a peaceful village from raiding bandits, becoming a trusted ally for our hero over the course of Season 1. When we catch up with her in Season 2, she's become a peacekeeping Marshal for the New Republic on Nevarro, working alongside Greef Karga to rehabilitate the formerly lawless outpost, and joins Mando in his quest to rescue Grogu.

Julia Jones as Omera

Julia Jones (Westworld) plays Omera, a woman who develops a close bond with the Mandalorian during his time on Sorgan.

Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto

Amy Sedaris (Trainwreck) plays Peli Motto, a cranky ship mechanic on Tatooine. Peli is faced with the unenviable task of repairing Mando's ship after a deadly dogfight, only to discover the tight-lipped bounty hunter is hiding a precious cargo. She appears again in Season 2, as crafty and mercenary as ever.

Jake Cannavale as Toro Calican

Jake Cannavale (Nurse Jackie) plays an ambitious but untested young bounty hunter named Toro Calican. Toro enlists Mando's help in carrying out his first major job, but he's not above betraying his new partner to get ahead.

Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand

Ming-Na Wen (Marvel's Agents of SHIELD) plays an assassin named Fennec Shand. The Mandalorian encounters Shand midway through Season 1 when he and Toro Calican are hired to capture her. Although Calican double-crosses the mercenary and leaves her for dead, it's revealed in Season 2 that she was saved by Boba Fett and is now in his debt and sporting some cybernetic implants in her stomach, which clearly haven't slowed her down at all. She'll star alongside Fett in his new spinoff series The Book of Boba Fett.

Mark Boone Junior as Ranzar "Ran" Malk

Mark Boone Junior (seen here in Sons of Anarchy) plays Ranzar Malk, a bounty hunting middleman who has a history with Mando and hires him to join a team tasked with freeing a prisoner from a New Republic ship.

Bill Burr as Mayfeld

Comedian Bill Burr plays Mayfeld, introduced in Season 1 as one of the members of Ran's team. Mayfeld is a former Imperial sharpshooter, though he makes it clear he wasn't a Stormtrooper (and thus has better aim). He appears again in Season 2 and somewhat redeems himself for previously betraying Mando by helping him break into an Imperial facility to help save Grogu.

Richard Ayoade as Q9-0

Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd) is the voice of Q9-0, aka "Zero," an eccentric droid who serves as part of Ran's crew. His voice returns in episode 2 of Season 2.

Clancy Brown as Burg

Clancy Brown (Highlander) plays Burg, a Devaronian who serves on Ran's crew. His impressive strength and mean temper make him both a valuable asset and a dangerous companion.

Natalia Tena as Xi'an

Natalia Tena (Game of Thrones) plays a Twi'lek bounty hunter named Xi'an. She seems to have a romantic history with Mando and is deadly proficient with knives.

Ismael Cruz Cordova as Qin

Ismael Cruz Cordova plays Qin, a Twi'lek bounty hunter, brother to Xi'an and the person Ran's team is sent to free from New Republic custody. He also has a history with Mando.

Matt Lanter as Davan

Matt Lanter, who voices Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, has a cameo in Episode 6 as Davan, a New Republic soldier tasked with guarding the prison ship Mando and his team are trying to break into.

Dave Filoni as Trapper Wolf

Dave Filoni is one of three Mandalorian directors who have cameos in Episode 6 as New Republic X-wing pilots. He also returns in episode 2 of Season 2 alongside Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Captain Carson Teva.

Rick Famuyiwa as Jib Dodger

Rick Famuyiwa (director of episode 6) is one of three The Mandalorian helmers who have cameos in the episode as New Republic X-wing pilots.

Deborah Chow as Sash Ketter

Deborah Chow is one of three The Mandalorian directors who have cameos in Episode 6 as New Republic X-wing pilots.

Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon

Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) plays Moff Gideon. This Imperial warlord seems to be clinging to power even after the collapse of the Empire. He's been searching for Grogu to study his blood - most likely in an attempt to resurrect Emperor Palpatine, and created his own army of droid dark troopers. He was defeated in the Season 2 finale and lost the Darkasaber to Mando.

Adam Pally and Jason Sudeikis as Bike Scout Trooper #1 and #2



Happy Endings star Adam Pally and Saturday Night Live's Jason Sudeikis cameoed in episode 8 of The Mandalorian as a couple of stormtroopers on speeder bikes (one of whom was way too rough with Baby Yoda and totally deserved to get shot by IG-11). The two shared a brief but memorable scene in the episode's opening minutes, squabbling over Baby Yoda and seemingly offering an explanation for why stormtroopers are such terrible shots - because their blasters are cheap and shoddily made.

Timothy Olyphant as Cobb Vanth

Fresh off starring in Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet and Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Justified's Timothy Olyphant arrived in Season 2 as Cobb Vanth. A character first seen in the 2015 novel Star Wars: Aftermath, Vanth is the Marshal of Mos Pelgo, a tiny settlement on Tatooine. Vanth wore a suit of Mandalorian armor that used to belong to Boba Fett, giving it to Mando after the bounty hunter helped him save the town from a krayt dragon.

Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett



Yes, the actor who played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, and would then replace the original actor who voiced Boba Fett for the 2004 DVD re-releases of the original trilogy, is officially back in the role of Boba. First seen looking a little worse for wear at the end of Season 2's first episode, Boba Fett reappeared in Season 2, episode 6 on the hunt for his armor, along with Fennec Shand, who is now working with the bounty hunter after he saved her life. The episode also seemingly made canon the idea that Jango Fett was a Mandalorian foundling, making him as entitled to wear the armor (and pass it down to his son Boba) as Mando is. Morrison will star in his own spinoff series, The Book of Boba Fett, premiering in December 2021.

John Leguizamo as Gor Koresh

John Leguizamo - or, if that's not him under that cyclops-like eye, his voice - makes an appearance in Season 2's first episode as Gor Koresh, an underworld crime boss looking to get his hands on a hefty chunk of Beskar steel.

Josh Moreno as Mos Pelgo Resident

Josh Moreno - who appeared in Star Trek: Picard’s first season as a Coppelius android - can be seen in the first episode of Season 2 pushing a trolley loaded with a couple of canisters around Mos Pelgo as The Mandalorian rides into town. He's definitely not Sam Witwer, though, no matter what the internet tells you.

Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Captain Carson Teva

When Dave Filoni's X-Wing pilot Trapper Wolf reappears in Season 2, episode 2, he's accompanied by a new pilot - Captain Carson Teva, played by Korean Canadian actor Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, who is perhaps best known for his roles as Randy Ko in Train 48, Jung Park in the videogame Rainbow Six: Vegas and its sequel, and as the curmudgeonly Appa in comedy series Kim's Convenience. Captain Teva returns in Season 2, episode 4, trying to enlist Cara Dune to help the New Republic.

Dee Bradley Baker and Misty Rosas as Frog Lady

Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels alum Dee Bradley Baker (who voiced Rex and the other clones) lends his voice to the Frog Lady in Season 2, episode 2, while Misty Rosas, who did the performance capture for Kuiil in Season 1, also does the performance capture for her here.

Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze

BSG alum Katee Sackhoff, who voices Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, plays the live-action version of her character in Season 2, starting in episode 3. She, along with Koska and Axe, save Mando from a particularly wet situation on Trask, before helping him take down Moff Gideon in the Season 2 finale. Now that Mando has possession of the darksaber, time will tell if she and Din will be allies or enemies.

Mercedes Varnado (aka Sasha Banks) as Koska Reeves

WWE women’s champ Mercedes Varnado - better known by her ring name Sasha Banks - plays Koska Reeves, a member of the Nite Owls; an elite Mandalorian unit led by Bo-Katan.

Simon Kassianides as Axe Woves

Agents of SHIELD veteran Simon Kassianides plays Axe Woves, a Mandalorian of very few words accompanying Bo-Katan and Koska on Trask. Together, the trio are the first Mandalorians that Din Djarin finds in his Season 2 quest to find more of his own kind.

Titus Welliver as Imperial Captain

Titus Welliver, known for his lead role in Amazon’s Bosch as well as recurring roles on Sons of Anarchy, The Good Wife, Deadwood, and Agents of SHIELD, plays an Imperial Captain in command of a Gozanti-class freighter.

Alexander Wraith and Philip Alexander as Freighter Pilot and Security Officer

The co-pilots of the Imperial Captain’s freighter are played by Alexander Wraith and Philip Alexander, both of whom have also had roles on Agents of SHIELD, bringing the MCU cameo tally of Season 2’s third episode to four actors.

Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano



The Daredevil-verse's Rosario Dawson is playing the live-action version of Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker's fan-favorite apprentice from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She made her debut in episode 5 of Season 2, titled "The Jedi." Ashoka's inclusion in Season 2 served as a backdoor pilot for an Ahsoka spinoff series which was announced by Disney in December 2020, which will no doubt see her continuing her hunt for Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Bridger. Make sure to check out our timeline recap of Ahsoka Tano's story leading up to The Mandalorian Season 2.

Michael Biehn as Lang



Terminator and Aliens star Michael Biehn appeared in Season 2, episode 5 as an ex-military gunfighter in service of Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth on Corvus.

Diana Lee Inosanto as Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth



Inosanto is an actress and stuntwoman who is also the goddaughter of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. She plays a cruel and calculating Magistrate on the planet Corvus who has information Ahsoka Tano wants about Grand Admiral Thrawn, the man Elsbeth serves, which is a major hint that The Mandalorian will connect to the ending of Star Wars Rebels.

Wing Tao Chao as Governor Wing



Chao - a former Executive Vice President of Walt Disney Imagineering who was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2019 alongside Jon Favreau - plays Governor Wing, who is put in charge of Corvus after Magistrate Elsbeth's defeat.

Richard Brake as Valin Hess



Richard Brake has played plenty of villains over the years, including Joe Chill in Batman Begins and The Night King in the earlier seasons of Game of Thrones, and he continued that streak in The Mandalorian Season 2, episode 7 as Valin Hess, an Imperial Officer who helped oversee Project Cinder - Emperor Palpatine's Empire-destroying contingency plan - on the planet Burnin Konn, where he callously sacrificed his own men as well as civilians to carry out the Emperor's orders. Thankfully, he was later dispatched by Miggs Mayfeld.

Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker



In the most shocking moment of The Mandalorian Season 2 finale, Luke Skywalker himself returned to answer Grogu's call and train him in the ways of the Jedi, dispatching a platoon of Moff Gideon's dark troopers and saving Mando's team. According to the credits, Mark Hamill reprised his role as Luke for the cameo, while Hamill's younger body double was played by Max Lloyd Jones.

R2-D2 as Himself



And wherever Luke Skywalker goes, his trusty droid R2-D2 is never far behind; he rolled in to meet Grogu during The Mandalorian Season 2 finale too.

Matthew Wood as Bib Fortuna

Matthew Wood took over the role of Bib Fortuna for the character's surprise post-credits cameo in The Mandalorian Season 2 finale. Jabba the Hutt's obsequious majordomo seemed to have taken on his former master's role and his indulgences before Boba Fett and Fennec Shand came to kill him, even keeping his own fellow Twi'lek slave. It remains to be seen what the bounty hunter will do now he's taken command of Jabba's palace, but we'll find out in The Book of Boba Fett spinoff TV show premiering in December 2021. The role of Bib Fortuna was originally played by Michael Carter in Return of the Jedi.
