Earlier this month, The Mandalorian composer Ludwig Göransson remained cryptic about what's in store for the anticipated season two, although he did allude to a new direction for the storyline.

In an interview with Deadline, he said: "We started a couple of months ago, and I'm extremely excited. Jon's taking the story into places that I didn't know existed, and I think it's so fun."
The composer went on to describe his experience working on the first season, stating: "I was so lucky on the show, where every episode, we recorded with a 70-piece orchestra, with the LA Studio Symphony at Fox."
The comments follow a virtual panel with series creator and executive producer Jon Favreau for the ATX Television Festival, during which time he revealed a bit more about what's to come.
He commented: "As we explore partnering with new filmmakers and having new characters and going deeper with the characters we already have, it's really been very fun and fulfilling and I hope people are having as much fun seeing it as we are having making it."
The Mandalorian stars Game of Thrones alumni Pedro Pascal as the mysterious bounty hunter known simply as 'Mando', with the legendary Carl Weathers as Greef Karga and Werner Herzog as The Client.
Meanwhile, Hollywood heavyweight Nick Nolte and Jojo Rabbit director Taika Waititi lend their voices to Kuiil and IG-11, respectively.
