Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 Trailer Debuting on Monday Night Football

Just two weeks ahead of its Season Two debut, fans are about to get a second trailer for Lucasfilms' The Mandalorian. The Kathleen Kennedy-led studio revealed Friday night an "exclusive look" at the sophomore outing for the Disney+ series will be released at some point during the Monday Night Football broadcast this coming Monday. This week, the Arizona Cardinals travel to AT&T Stadium and take on the Dallas Cowboys in the MNF bout with kickoff slated to take place at 8:15 p.m.

The brief commercial that aired Friday also included some new clips, like the main shot with Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), Cara Dune (Gina Carano), and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers). There's also a shot inside the Mando's Razor Crest that seems to include the return of Horatio Sanz's mysterious Mythrol character from the show's pilot.

As with anything else under the Disney umbrella, the plot to The Mandalorian's second season is being held close to the chest. According to series creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, the next batch of episodes will very much explore the sub-section of the Star Wars universe set up in this neo-Western show.

"The new season is about introducing a larger story in the world," Favreau explained. "The stories become less isolated, yet each episode has its own flavor, and hopefully we’re bringing a lot more scope to the show." Adds Filoni, "Everything gets bigger, the stakes get higher, but also the personal story between the Child and the Mandalorian develops in a way I think people will enjoy."

The season will also feature Giancarlo Esposito's Moff Gideon in a much bigger role as he does whatever he can to try taking The Child back from Mando and company.

“I’ll be going toe-to-toe with Mando,” Esposito explained. The actor was nominated for an Emmy after his brief role in the show's first season. “It’s an iconic battle. I want to disarm him mentally as well. Who knows? Maybe there’s an opportunity to get him to fight some battles for me. You may think I’m a villain, but I’m trying to harness some energy and some powers for a path that could be best for all. You'll get to see him be somewhat diplomatic and more of a manipulator."
