The Mandalorian season two is halfway to the finish line, having already released the first four episodes of the year on Disney+. With four episodes to go, it seems there's a good amount of ground still to cover.
Of course, Star Wars fans are champing at the bit to see the live action arrival of the very popular Ahsoka Tano, who will be portrayed by Rosario Dawson. She hasn't yet been seen in the show, but her friend and ally, Bo-Katan Kryze, namedropped the ex-Jedi back in episode three of this current season.
Episodes of The Mandalorian are typically on the shorter side compared to modern episodic television, especially for a drama-type series on a streaming service, where episodes can sometimes exceed an hour. This seems to be a very deliberate choice on the part of the filmmakers who seem to cater the overall runime to the story.
Star Wars News Net has picked up on a listing from the German FSK (basically the country's equivalent of the MPAA in America, which sets guidelines for many aspects of filmmaking.) The listing reveals the runtimes for the next two episodes of The Mandalorian, with Chapter 13 clocking in at 45 minutes, six seconds and Chapter 14 running just a touch over 32 minutes.
Star Wars News Net also notes that the FSK website has been accurate in their runtime listings for the series thus far.
WHAT THIS MEANS
The Clone Wars and Rebels co-creator and general Star Wars producer extraordinaire, Dave Filoni, is all-but-confirmed to be directing Chapter 13. The episode is also significant because all signs point to it being the installmant where Ahsoka debuts.
Filoni played a very large part in crafting the animated version of the character, so it's only fitting that he'd helm the episode that finally brings Ahsoka into live-action.
The next episode of The Mandalorian will arrive on Disney+ on Friday, November 27.
