  • - What are the new details revealed

  • about "The Mandalorian" season two?

  • "The Mandalorian's" glorious finale

  • brought the premiere season of the first ever live action

  • Star Wars TV series to an end just before the new year.

  • And for the first time since before the release

  • of 1999's "The Phantom Menace," the Star Wars fandom

  • seemed united in wholeheartedly enjoying something

  • set in the galaxy far, far away.

  • It was truly a Life Day miracle.

  • So, it seemed like a foregone conclusion

  • that this series would get a second season,

  • even before series creator, writer and producer, Jon Favreau

  • confirmed on social media that season two

  • of "The Mandalorian" would be a go for Fall 2020.

  • And, while Favreau did give us a small taste

  • of what to expect with this picture of a statuette

  • of a Gamorrean.

  • You know, the "Green Eggs and Ham" Star Wars species?

  • It's that explosive finale and holy (beep)

  • final moment of the episode that has fans salivating

  • over what's to come.

  • So let's gather up and break down all of the information

  • we know about season two of the Mando right now,

  • and infer what we can.

  • Also, in case you haven't seen it yet,

  • spoilers for "The Mandalorian" chapter eight,

  • or if you've seen it already,

  • please use this time to like and subscribe.

  • - We all will be quiet.

  • - Okay, first thing's first.

  • Let's get to what we all wanna hear about,

  • whenever we talk about "The Mandalorian."

  • - I would like to see the baby.

  • - The wee baby Yoda!

  • Look, we know that season two's gonna feature

  • enough of the wee baby Yodes to fill our heart's content,

  • so we can fill your hearts with our content.

  • The first season ended with the Mandalorian literally

  • becoming baby Yoda's legal dad!

  • Because, this is the way of the Mandalorians.

  • And in season two, it sounds like

  • they're gonna reveal the real name for the wee baby Yoda.

  • That's right, IG-11 voice actor and Mandalorian director

  • Taika Waititi revealed during this weekend's Golden Globes,

  • that he knows that old ass 50 year old baby's

  • real name, and it isn't baby Yoda.

  • But he's not just gonna tell us like

  • Pedro Pascal did with Din Djarin in a random interview.

  • No, he's gonna leave it up to Jon Favreau

  • to reveal the wee baby Yoda's real name.

  • And honestly, that's a relief to hear,

  • this is all planned out, and isn't just some like,

  • smoke monster "Lost" bull (beep).

  • Yeah!

  • I'm still mad about it.

  • Now we also know that old Din Djarin's gonna try

  • to find the wee baby Yoda's homeworld,

  • a planet of presumed force users,

  • which might not go great

  • because Mandalorians and Jedi are ancient enemies.

  • I mean, their enmity goes back a long way.

  • And while Yoda species aren't all Jedi in hiding,

  • we suspect that the Mandalorian harboring

  • a force sensitive child might cause some friction.

  • Especially since, as we saw in chapter eight

  • of "The Mandalorian," Din was possibly rescued and raised

  • by Death Watch Mandalorians who, really, really

  • dislike Jedi and even allied themselves with Darth Maul

  • for a while, after he killed their last leader

  • and took 'em over.

  • Now all of this is laid out

  • in the animated "Clone War" series and when it returns

  • in February, the new season's gonna be all about

  • the siege of Mandalore during the Clone Wars.

  • So we can expect to learn a lot more Star lore

  • that'll deepen our understanding

  • of the Manda-lore in series.

  • Now it turns out that Mand-lore is pretty awesome

  • and thankfully Mandalorian historian, Dave Filoni,

  • is helping to guide this series.

  • And speaking of deep Mando-lore, we're gonna get a lot more

  • of it in "The Mandalorian" second season,

  • based off the finale's stunning final image

  • of Moff Gideon, standing amidst the wreckage

  • of a TIE fighter, wielding the Darksaber.

  • Now the Darksaber is a relic created

  • by the only Mandalorian Jedi ever to join

  • the Jedi Order, Tarre Vizsla.

  • The fact that Moff Gideon has it now,

  • means that he either killed the former Mandalorian leader

  • Bo Katan during the Mandalorian purge,

  • which means Din Djarin needs to avenge her,

  • or she's gonna be back and super pissed in season two.

  • Either option's gonna be pretty cool to watch.

  • And if you wanna know more, stay tuned for

  • an upcoming episode of Explainiac.

  • Now, could this mean the former foundling,

  • Din Djarin might use the Darksaber, perhaps as a symbol

  • to unite the disparate Mandalorian clans and cohorts,

  • and become their leader?

  • Well, it's possible, but seems like a lot for a season

  • that already has an awful lot going on,

  • so maybe that's something for down the road

  • in future seasons.

  • But what about the rest of Din Djarin's crew?

  • Well, Carl Weathers, who plays

  • the bounty hunter guild member Greef Carga,

  • tweeted that he'll be involved with the second season.

  • But he's not the only familiar face that we're gonna see.

  • Deadline reported that insiders claim some characters

  • from the Skywalker saga are set to appear in season two.

  • However, don't expect them to be major characters,

  • unless we're gonna see a lot of digital de-aging,

  • but rather, consider them to be characters who have

  • their faces covered or maybe ones that are all aliens.

  • What I'm trying to say is Watto's back, baby!

  • (Watto groans)

  • Folks, this means like all the bounty hunters

  • from "Empire Strikes Back."

  • Since the Mandalorian's back in good standing

  • with the bounty hunter's guild, maybe, just maybe,

  • he's gonna team up with the likes of Bossk or Zuckuss

  • or 4 Lom, IG-88, or Dengar, that mummy (beep).

  • In fact, in current Star Wars canon, we know

  • that Dengar is still bounty hunting at the time

  • of the "Aftermath" novels.

  • And, it's even being speculated that he is alive

  • in "The Rise of Skywalker," hiding out under the name

  • Rothgar Deng, according to the visual dictionary.

  • (sighs) These names never get any better.

  • Rothgar Deng, private eye, bounty hunting

  • at your pleasure.

  • Plus we still don't know who they were teasing,

  • approaching the body of Fennec Shand at the end

  • of chapter five.

  • Now we still think the boot jingles hint that it might be

  • Boba Fett and it would definitely be the Skywalker saga

  • characters that fans would most want to see.

  • But another bit worth mentioning is that the Mandalorian

  • is searching for baby Yoda's home world.

  • That means there's another person lurking that might want

  • to know the same thing.

  • Specifically the Phantom Menace himself.

  • I'm talking about the Senate,

  • the man who smashed, Sheev Palpatine.

  • He's recuperating in a jar of goo, building the Sith fleet

  • on Exegol in the unknown regions.

  • Who knows what he's up to?

  • We still don't really know how he survived getting shafted

  • in "Return of the Jedi," but we wouldn't be surprised

  • if the presumably Midichlorian-rich baby Yoda

  • and his species might play some sort of part

  • in his survival.

  • We'll just have to wait and see when "The Mandalorian"

  • season two drop on Disney Plus, this fall.

  • But what do you folks think?

  • What do you wanna see most

  • in season two of "The Mandalorian?"

  • - I would like to see the baby.

  • - And who are the Skywalker saga characters

  • you most want to see?

  • Also, what's the baby Yoda's real name?

  • And why is it, is it really a baby Yoda?

  • Let's discuss.
