The leaks (or reveals) for The Mandalorian season 2 continue. After learning that Ahsoka (and possibly Sabine and maybe even Rex!) will be in season 2 of The Mandalorian and that Boba Fett is featured as well, Deadline now reports that Katee Sackhoff, who voiced Bo-Katan Kryze in The Clone Wars, will now play the character in The Mandalorian season 2. Season 2 could very well turn out to be one huge guest star festival with so many prominent characters making an appearance. Bo-Katan’s inclusion does make sense though, since she may want her darksaber back from Moff Gideon.
How do you feel about the inclusion of yet another Clone Wars character? Ar you excited about the possibilities or do you fear season 2 may get overwhelmed by its various guest stars?
Michael Biehn will join the Mandalorian cast in season 2! Biehn is certainly best known for his role as “Kyle Reese” in “The Terminator”. Another of his iconic genre roles was “Corporal Hicks” in James Cameron’s “Aliens”. Biehn hasn’t really had any high profile roles in recent years but The Mandalorian may put him in the spotlight again. Details on his role are sparse, but he’s said to portray a bounty hunter who The Mandalorian had business with in the past. But that’s not the only news. It was also announced that Bill Burr will make a return as “Mayfeld” in season 2.
The Mandalorian season 2 is currently in post production, at least for now. Other shows that are in post production are already delayed, among them “The Walking Dead”, where the season finale is currently in post but will have to be pushed back indefinitely. However, there are no news of Lucasfilm or ILM shutting down (whereas Marvel Studios has shut down for the time being), so there’s hope The Mandalorian will return to Disney+ on schedule in October 2020.
Are you excited for Biehn to make a guest appearance on The Mandalorian as a bounty hunter?
Jon Favreau tweeted the following a few hours ago, the Mandalorian will return Fall 2020! And then he goes on and teases the return of yet another classic Star Wars alien.
Star Wars Resistance season 2 premiered in the US yesterday. In an attempt to boost awareness and maybe ratings for the series, the season 2 opening episode “Into The Unknown” is available on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, it’s not even geoblocked, so anyone should be able to access it.
So how was it? Click through for a discussion!
A brand new trailer for the second season of Star Wars Resistance has been released today. Along with that comes the announcement that Resistance will also end after season 2. This is the official trailer description from the Star Wars YouTube channel:
The Emmy Award-nominated series Star Wars Resistance returns for its second and final season beginning Sunday, October 6 at 10:00 p.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. The concluding season takes place during the events of “The Last Jedi” leading up to “The Rise of Skywalker,” as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale.
In light of this it’s no surprise Hasbro no longer makes toys for the show. Also, ratings were very bad. Season 2 was probably greenlit / in production, long before season 1 even aired. In light of the ratings and lack of toy support it only makes sense for Disney to focus on something new. Of course, it may also be possible that Resistance was always supposed to be just a show with two seasons, but I find that unlikely, considering the costs developing the show and how animation usually works.
Watch the trailer by clicking the image below. It looks quite epic in places, with huge space battles. Kylo Ren makes a guest appearance even (not voiced by Adam Driver, it appears). As far as story arcs go: apparently the Colossus is in search of a new planet to call home, while the First Order can still track the Colossus. Kaz and friends don’t know how they can do that, but we know the answer already. Hyperspace tracking, of course. Let’s hope the Colossus won’t have any problem with its fuel supply as well. Leave your constructive thoughts in the comments!
The Star Wars Resistance panel was also held today at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. And while the livestream suddenly cut away from the panel, just as the the first episode of season 2 was about to be screened, we do have at least the poster to show you.
Apparently Tam will be a First Order cadet named DT-533 in season 2, which is supposed to pick up right after season 1 ended, with the Colossus in space and Tam with the First Order. Not much else is known at the moment, but more news will certainly leak. Will you follow season 2 of Resistance which will air later in 2019? I think season 1 was more or less entertaining, but had too many filler episodes in which nothing of consequence happened. Maybe things will pick up speed in season 2, now that the First Order is invading the galaxy and with the Colossus in space.
