The Mandalorian Season 2 Is Set To Be Even Bigger And Better

Disney+ found success with its Star Wars spin-off show The Mandalorian - not least because of the fan fave Baby Yoda - so it's no surprise a second season got the greenlight.

By the sounds of it, fans are right to be excited about the new episodes, as creator Jon Favreau has big plans for the mysterious bounty hunter and his adorable sidekick.

This week, 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 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.

As for the fan fave, "Baby Yoda is voiced by a combination of baby samples, bat-eared foxes and kinkajous," according to a tweet from Lucasfilm sound designer Matt Wood.

While the coronavirus pandemic has thrown a spanner in the works for many film and TV projects, thankfully the second instalment of the Disney+ series hasn't suffered the same fate.

Favreau went on to say during the virtual panel: "We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lock down.

"Thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we have been able to do all of our visual effects and editing and post production remotely through systems that had been set up by those companies for us."
