WHAT THIS MEANS

Rodriguez's invovlement with The Mandalorian has been rumored for some time now, and his track record indicates he'll be a great pick for this series. With this announcement, Rodriguez now joins Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Peyton Reed, Carl Weathers, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Rick Famuyiwa on the confirmed team of directors for the Mando's sophomore season, forming up an incredibly talented list. Clearly Rodriguez's priorities are in place, as the photo he shared with Baby Yoda is enough to get fans craving any footage they can get for the three-fingered star. The Child has already been promised by the series' animation supervisor to be well on his way, so it's only a matter of time until a trailer and, eventually, the second season hit.
