Season two of The Mandalorian is almost upon us, and as if as the excitement of being reunited with Baby Yoda wasn’t enough, it looks like Star Wars fans have lots more to look forward to in the new season.


Star Giancarlo Esposito has teased some new details about his The Mandalorian character Moff Gideon, who looks set to play a crucial role in the upcoming season.

Speaking with Good Morning America, the Breaking Bad actor said, “My character, Moff Giddeon, is the warden of the galaxy. He is a remnant of the Imperial Empire and he is still searching for his quarry, which we hope he will find.”

The character is been something of a mystery to fans since he first appeared in season one, and his motivations for trying to get his hands on The Child remain unclear.

Despite the character’s importance, there’s no doubting that the star of the series is The Child – and Esposito has said the adorable character is going to take viewers on a real journey this season.

“He’s going to make this show and allow us to take a journey spiritually to who we really are inside,” he said. Intriguing…
