It’s a startling realization knowing that three Saturdays from now I will have seen the first episode of the second season of The Mandalorian. Yeah, that episode that will reintroduce us to our newest favorite Star Wars duo, Mando and Baby Yoda. The episode that could potentially feature Boba Fett. The episode we’ve been waiting for for nearly a year!
I’m ecstatic, I’m elated, but to be honest, I’m also a little anxious. The Force Awakens was great…and then The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker left me sometimes very pleased but at other times very dazed and confused. It’s already been said that this season will stray from following Mando and The Child for the entire duration of the season, instead choosing to focus on other characters. Will that be a good move? We’ll see, I guess.
What gives me hope, however, is Dave Filoni who has proven over the years the ability to tell a good story from beginning to end. Just look at The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels. These stories were good but they only got better and better and better. If The Mandalorian follows the expected trajectory we could get a really, really great story in this second season and I am ready for all of it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.
