The Mandalorian Season 2 Trailer Is Finally Out, And Fans Have One Big Question

For fans of The Mandalorian the wait for the season 2 trailer is summed best up by Werner Herzog’s character: “I want to see the baby.” After months of waiting, the nearly two-minute trailer does give us glimpses of the internet’s favorite child, as well as a sense of what’s in store for Din Djarin and the as-yet unnamed Baby Yoda. However, the biggest question fans have after the trailer is not about the Mandalorian or the Child. No, they want to know where Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano is. Earlier this year, multiple leaks suggested that Ahsoka Tano would appear in live-action for the first time, played by Rosario Dawson. Katee Sackhoff will be in the series as her character from The Clone Wars, Mandalorian leader Bo Katan. We also heard that Temuera Morrison will be back as either Captain Rex or, possibly, Boba Fett. Let’s break down everything in the trailer.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Trailer Is a Perfect Hype-Builder

The voiceover we hear in the trailer sounds a lot like Emily Swallow’s Armorer character. Last we saw her, she was left fighting off Stormtroopers with her forging tools. She’s obviously survived and found our Mandalorian again, giving him both a backstory and directive where the Child is concerned. She tells him what The Clone Wars fans already knew, that Mandalorians and Jedi were enemies. Nonetheless, she says that the Mandalorian must return the child to his “own kind.” So, along with doing his typical bounty hunter business, he must track down where the Child comes from.

This journey will take him, presumably, back to Tatooine, back to Carl Weathers’ Greef Karga and Gina Carano’s Cara Dune, some frozen wasteland, and on a boat. There is also a throwdown in a fighting ring of some kind, where Baby Yoda does something that we will be seeing on social media GIFs for a long time. Yet, the most intriguing moment of the trailer involves a hooded figure, who disappears from sight. Fans on social media wondered if perhaps the figure was Ahsoka Tano, which makes sense if you’ve never seen the character nor Rosario Dawson before. The actor in the show is Sasha Banks, a WWE wrestler, who some fans suspect is Star Wars: Rebels character Sabine Wren (who has history with the Dark Saber). Also, your humble correspondent’s mother texted me to suggest that it was Ahsoka in disguise.

Thus, the season 2 trailer for The Mandalorian is perfect. It builds hype, shows us what we’re excited for (almost), and doesn’t really reveal anything about what’s to come.

Season 2 of The Mandalorian debuts on Disney+ on October 30.
