Star Wars’ The Mandalorian season 2 is still on track for October release, says Jon Favreau – The Sun

JON Favreau has confirmed that The Mandalorian season two is still expected to drop in October thanks to LucasFilm and ILM technologies.

Disney+ revealed the series would air in October but the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has left many productions up in the air.

Speaking at ATX Festival 2020 on Friday, however, show creator Jon said: "Thanks to how technology forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we've done all our visual effects and editing and all post-production remotely.

"So we've been very efficient in that sense so it will be available as planned in October on Disney+."

He added: "We have been hopefully building on what people love about the first season.

"It felt like one continuous production because of the rhythm of TV, it's not like you get to stop. We started filming the day after it aired for the first time, so it doesn't feel like the next season – we're just continuing."

He concluded: "It's really been fun and fulfilling and I hope people are having as much fun seeing it as we are making it."

The hit series will return for its second outing later amid new reports claiming that animated character Bo-Katan will be brought to life for the first time, lining up a potentially epic Disney+ crossover with Clone Wars and Rebels.

SlashFilm claims actress Katee Sackhoff has joined the cast of season two as Bo-Katan, who she has previously voiced in both Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels.

Bo-Katan belonged to the Death Watch, a splinter group that opposed the Mandalore's pacifist government.

However the character eventually found herself leading the Mandalore resistance against Sith Lord Darth Maul after he took over the Death Watch.

The Mandalorian season one is available to stream on Disney+ now.
