Star Wars fans have been feverishly awaiting Season 2 of The Mandalorian ever since the eight-episode first season debuted on Disney+ last fall.
Since most of the Star Wars fandom binge-watched Season 1 in a day or two, it’s been a long wait. Today, online rumors are swirling that The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm are set to air The Mandalorian Season 2 trailer tonight or Saturday during an NBA game on ESPN or ABC, both Disney-owned companies.
Reportedly, the much-anticipated first look at what will happen in the sophomore season of the hit Star Wars series will air during one of these two professional basketball games:
- Thursday, Aug. 20, during the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers game.
- Saturday, Aug. 22, during the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers game.
It’s not far-fetched to assume that a Star Wars trailer will drop this weekend, which was supposed to be Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California. Although this year’s convention was canceled, many passionate fans will still be on the lookout for something special from the powers-that-be at Disney.
Frequently, Lucasfilm and Disney executives debut Star Wars movie and television trailers during the huge annual Star Wars fan event. In fact, the first footage of The Mandalorian Season 1 dropped during last year’s Star Wars Celebration in April 2019.
Although , Dave Filoni, and other executives haven’t told fans much about the storyline, the is likely to feature Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), The Child (AKA Baby Yoda), Cara Dune (Gina Carano), and Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), who all played a major role in the 1 finale.
Fans may also get a first glimpse of new Mandalorian cast members like Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) from the animated Clone Wars series.
