I know I'm late to the game in writing about the new Mandalorian Season 2 trailer but let's do it anyway! The Mandalorian was the show that kicked off the launch of the Disney+ streaming service and became a quick Star Wars fan hit. The show was so popular that "Baby Yoda" or The Child spawned numerous memes that are still quite popular. If I had any critique of the first season it was that it felt a bit rushed and some episodes felt a bit "monster of the week" where I would have preferred them to be all threaded to the main narrative. That said, I really enjoyed The Mandalorian and after watching the latest trailer I'm excited for the new season to drop on October 30th.

This new season looks to have The Mandalorian keep on as the caretaker for The Child on a new quest to find the Jedi. I've also heard a few rumors about the show that spoil a lot of beats that would be fun to experience fresh so I won't put any of that here. That said, looks like Disney+ is planning The Mandarlorian out to season 4 so if you love the show that seems like good news. Looks like we have to wait about that long to get Baby Yoda's origins but frankly I'm not sure that's as interesting to me as just being with the characters as they make their way through the Star Wars galaxy. I'm not sure what Yoda's origins are and if I found out I'm not sure that would make The Empire Strikes back or the original trilogy better for it. Not to say learning more about Baby Yoda would be bad, but it's not anything I'm clamoring for.

Hey Greg, I tried to keep the post potentially spoiler free and I added a spoiler tag to note there may be potential spoilers in the comments. That said, let's keep the comments potentially spoiler free moving forward if we can.

(Edited comment, removed previous one made before Jon's)
I saw the trailer shortly after it was released, I think. It's exciting! Thanks for posting the date, I didn't know (or remember) when it was supposed to start. I watched some videos on this were from the YouTube channels called New Rockstars (https://youtu.be/t_bKLFIGJBY) and IGN (https://youtu.be/4iR5_SxE3EY). Their speculations may contain spoilers, so don't watch them if you don't want speculative spoilers.

I read that Season 4 will start to answer questions. So expect more setup for seasons 2 & 3.

I read a leaked script for season 2. Besides incorporating a young Snoke character where you see his pre-school years it’s mostly just people asking questions the whole time.

“WHY IS THE RAZOR CREST BLUE?”

“Where did Mandos cape come from?”

“What’s Bossks back story?”

Oddly no one makes any kind of definitive statements about anything. That said it does open up ground for 20 new Disney+ shows so that’s something. I think one was titled “Investigation: Star Wars.”

It's blue, because that's the best color, of course! Though, I admit that black or purple would look pretty cool. What if it was fair and shifted between all the primary colors? That would be awesome! But, to keep it simple and to stay on budget, they selected the best and that, of course, is blue! LOL Hm, actually I think it's gray/silver, at least that's what the Lego model's color is. Though I did see a sexy blue pic of it on Deviant Art of it going through Hyperspace. It's still not as sexy as an X-Wing, but it is what it is.
