WARNING: SPOILERS FROM SEASON 1 AHEAD! DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE FIRST SEASON!
We’re just over a month away until we get Season 2 of The Mandalorian, but on Tuesday, a trailer dropped that of course has fans of the show flipping out about the new adventures of the bounty hunter and Baby Yoda.
Like with other Star Wars properties, die-hards spent the morning dissecting the footage and figuring out just what this season will all be about. So, as usual, I’ve put together some of the screenshots and theories that are already everywhere on Twitter.
Here’s a rundown of what we all saw in the super-cool trailer that got us all extremely excited:
1. The plot involves bringing Baby Yoda to its own kind
This is the crux of the whole show. What was Mando going to do with “the child” after fighting to keep it alive and breaking all kinds of rules in Season 1? The answer comes from The Armorer: “You must reunite it with its own kind,” and it involves the Jedi.
2. Who’s that hooded figure lurking?
We know it’s WWE wrestler Sasha Banks. But who’s the character?
There’s some speculation that she could play a character named Sabine Wren, which is intriguing because she was a Mandalorian who once owned the Darksaber. And the Darksaber, as we learned in last year’s finale, belongs to Moff Gideon.
My guess: she’s a Jedi of some sort (we hear about “an order of sorcerers” from the narration when she’s shown) keeping tabs on Baby Yoda. Speaking of which!
3. Baby Yoda will be cute as usual
I mean, goodness this is the best:
And yeah, that’s fast becoming a meme.
4. X-WINGS WOOOOO
Yeah I geeked out hard when I saw them (and yeah, we saw X-Wings at the end of an episode last year, see below, still exciting!). That means the New Republic will be involved again.
5. What icy planet are they on?
I see a lot of snow and ice in this trailer. Does that mean a visit to Hoth, where the rebels once had a base attacked in The Empire Strikes Back? It wouldn’t be the first planet from the Star Wars canon visited in this series — remember that time Mando visited Tatooine and we all thought Boba Fett returned?
