WHAT THIS MEANS
It appears that Lucasfilm and Disney are both going all-in for hyping up the release of The Mandalorian next month. In a way, this isn't surprising after the massive success of the Disney+ series. It remains to be seen what new content will be revealed, but it's a safe bet that a chunk of it could provide hints about the overall outlook of the show moving forward.
In the past, a plethora of merchandise was released for The Mandalorian, and many would agree that those didn't disappoint. An exclusive vinyl set showcasing Ludwig Goransson's score for the show will be arriving soon while Lucasfilm Publishing already confirmed that a wide array of The Mandalorian titles will debut next year. On top of that, the occasional Funko pop treatment for the show will also be expected.
Given that the new segment will feature digital content, there's always a chance that the stars from the show could pop up to share their thoughts about the upcoming season. Regardless, aside from the usual wait for The Mandalorian's weekly episode, it's safe to say that fans will keep a close eye on the Mando Mondays segment as well.
