Not even COVID-19 has been able to with the second season of The Mandalorian. While many other series (and movies) have been forced to postpone their premieres or freeze their shootings until further notice, the second season of this Disney + series has stayed true to its promised date from the beginning. And it is that the great project of Jon favreau He had an ace up his sleeve: just after finishing filming the first season last year, they linked up with the second, still without having premiered the series but fully confident that the product was going to be a success.
And boy did they get it right. The arrival of the series was a surprise for everyone, since The Mandalorian brought us not only the essence of star wars that many claim to miss in the cinema; also a character that has driven young and old crazy, Baby Yoda, and who now stars in numerous merchandising products, helping Disney to make cash every day.
With such a premiere in 2019, it is not surprising that the arrival of this season’s new episode was so eagerly awaited.
