While the main event is scheduled for Sunday, the Creative Arts Emmys for the more technical categories were already awarded yesterday. And The Mandalorian won in five categories! Emmys were awarded for Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single Camera Series, Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series, and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program. And while movie or tv awards are rather arbitrary and even though fewer people care about award shows each year, this is a very deserved win for The Mandalorian in these technical categories. So congratulations to the VFX, sound, camera and production design people who helped create The Mandalorian! Their hard work more than paid off!
The Mandalorian could still win the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series and Giancarlo Esposito could win an Emmy for his portrayal of Moff Gideon (he is also nominated for his role in Better Call Saul), but the competition is tough and a win seems unlikely in either of these categories.
The brand new season 2 trailer for The Mandalorian didn’t give anything away really, but it provided a few titillating glimpses at the places the show is going to visit. And we got a quick look at a few new characters as well. So what exactly did we see in the trailer? Click through for all the details!
Entertainment Weekly offers a very first look at The Mandalorian season 2. While the article is extremely light on season 2 details, it reveals a few tidbits about what to expect. According to the article season 2 will widen the scope, and other characters may also get a bit more focus as new storylines are introduced. The “big bad” of the season will be Moff Gideon, and the article teases that Gideon will also spent some one-on-one time with Baby Yoda. Even though the EW article will not tell you all that much about the upcoming season it is still worth a read as it also sheds some light about what’s going on behind the scenes on set and the thought process behind the show. We learn that Favreau will do nothing without Filoni’s approval and that Gina Carana asked Pedro Pascal to remove his helmet in his scenes with her when the camera is only on her, because it helps her with her performance when she can see his eyes and face.
Are you looking forward to season 2 of The Mandalorian? What are your expectactions, what do you want to see?
The latest episode of The Mandalorian, “Sanctuary”, was released earlier today. It’s another great one. Maybe not as action packed as the previous episodes, but instead we get more character development and some really cute and funny Baby Yoda moments. Chapter 4 is basically the Mandalorian version of “The Seven Samurai”, when a village asks the Mandalorian for help against bandits. You will certainly have lots of fun in the episode and Baby Yoda proves to be a scene stealer once again.
