The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau shared a set image from the second season of the live-action Star Wars series.
The Mandalorian pilot just premiered this week to much fanfare, but the cast and crew are already hard at work on season 2. On his Instagram page, Favreau teased fans with a message from the set of The Mandalorian, writing, “Greetings from the set of #TheMandalorian season 2.” Along with that brief message, the director shared a single image of a dusty Mandalorian battle helmet, seen below:
The Mandalorian, complete with its shocking twist ending, has broken new ground for the Star Wars universe. The show tells new stories and introduces new characters, but it also includes numerous easter eggs and references to previous Star Wars movies. Boba Fett, also a bounty hunter, has proven to be one of the most popular Star Wars characters ever created, and now Pedro Pascal plays a new galactic bounty hunter in the Disney+ show. Star Wars fans have previously enjoyed animated TV series set in George Lucas’ universe, but The Mandalorian finally brings the franchise to prestige TV.
