If you are a Star Wars fan, the chances are that you are counting down the days until season 2 of The Mandalorian kicks off on Disney+. Those days are getting less and less with the new batch of episodes set to kick off weekly from October 30th.
The second run of eight episodes will show the “Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through the dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire.”
If you don’t have Disney+, you can sign up for £5.99 a month or £59.99 a year.
Well, if you are a collector who loves buying the latest merchandise from the long-running franchise, Disney and Lucasfilm have got you covered because each Monday after a new episode airs, they will be releasing new Star Wars merchandise 0over at the official Star Wars Facebook page.
Speaking about the show and Mando Mondays, Kareem Daniel, president of Consumer Products, Games and Publishing said: “When ‘The Mandalorian’ debuted last year on Disney+, the show became an instant phenomenon, with fans of all ages expressing excitement for products related to its iconic characters – particularly the Child. This fall, as the world continues to watch the narrative unfold, we will further bring this unique Star Wars story to life through a must-have selection of toys, books, comics, digital content, and more.”
