Chapter 6. The Child and the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) in THE MANDALORIAN, exclusively on Disney+
The first season of The Mandalorian wrapped up in glorious fashion, so now we have season two to look forward to. Here are five things in particular we can’t wait for.
There were a lot of questions asked throughout the course of The Mandalorian. Was this just a fan service? Was there an actual story? It felt just Star Wars-y enough to bear the title, but maybe a little too far removed at times?
With the finale sounding off in tremendous fashion, we can answer all those questions. No, this was not just a fan service. Yes, there was an actual story. Yes, this was Star Wars in all of its glory. And bonus answer—Yes, we cannot wait for season two!
It has been officially confirmed for release in the Fall 2020, which is a really quick turnaround. The exact kind of turnaround we like to see, especially when consider that the grand Obi-Wan spin-off is still years in the making. Same with anything else. So having The Mandalorian closer than expected is wonderful news.
What can we expect in season two? A lot of good stuff. But there are some thing that I’m particularly looking forward to, and I want to talk about them now. Let’s start with No. 5.
5. Pablo Pascal (as in, his face)
I wasn’t sure they were going to do it. It was the way not to, after all. But the grand removal of Din Djarin‘s helmet for all of a few seconds was worth the wait and it was a powerful moment. It showed his character growth, how he had overcome his prejudice of droids, and how he was maybe, just maybe, beginning to deviate from The Way.
Just ever so slightly. Isn’t that kind of what Rey did to the Jedi Order? She deviated enough, kind of like Luke Skywalker, to make things really interesting.
Now that it’s happened once, I’m ready to see more. He really did portray emotion from behind the mask, but with the mask off, even in that short time, he was tremendous. More of that, please.
Moving on to No. 4.
