Shortly after the rumor floated James Mangold would direct parts of The Mandalorian, the director took to Twitter to deny it.
Just like that James Mangold denies working on The Mandalorian Season 2.
Last night we posted a rumor Mangold was directing parts of the upcoming second season. Mangold immediately debunked the rumor and let fellow director Ron Howard know on Twitter he wasn’t involved nor were there any discussions about it.

Mangold was previously reportedly tied to a Boba Fett solo flick. However, all anthology movies were put on hold when Disney put out one too many Star Wars movies in a short amount of time and Solo: A Star Wars Story didn’t get the box office reception Disney had anticipated.
The Mandalorian Season 2 is a work in progress in right now, so there should be news coming out sooner rather than later on who is involved in front and behind the camera. The series is set to premiere in October on Disney+.
Although Mangold’s denial does seem to confirm Bryce Dallas Howard’s involvement. Ron Howard tweeted a link mentioning Mangold and his daughter. Why would Ron Howard tweet about his daughter’s involvement if she wasn’t?
So perhaps part of the rumor was true. We just don’t know about the Robert Rodriguez part of it.
Either way, there are high expectations for The Mandalorian Season 2. Fans didn’t know what to expect for the debut series and it wound up being a critical and fan success.
The show doesn’t necessarily need big names attached to It. It needs talented folks who can tell a good story whether on paper or through the camera.
The Mandalorian Season 2 is scheduled to premiere in October.
