Warning - This article contains spoilers for The Mandalorian Season 2.

The Mandalorian Season 2 is slowly building a much-more compact shared universe in the realm of Star Wars. On top of introducing captivating characters like Mando and Baby Yoda, The Mandalorian managed to build a solid narrative that got fans hooked from the get-go. 

Now, the world of The Mandalorian is taking shape with the introduction of familiar characters like Bo-Katan and Boba Fett into the fold. However, this is only the beginning since the latest episode of Season 2 opened up a lot of story possibilities not just for the show, but for the entire Star Wars franchise. 

"Chapter 13" marked the live-action arrival of Ahsoka Tano, and the fan-favorite Togruta delivered more than just impressive lightsaber action. Ahsoka provided much-needed answers regarding the backstory of The Child, revealing what happened to the Yoda-like toddler in previous years. 

To celebrate the release of "Chapter 13," two pieces of promotional material have been unveiled to tide fans over. 


In a tweet, Star Wars officially released the teaser of "Chapter 13," providing fans with a glimpse of the much-talked-about episode of The Mandalorian Season 2. 

Meanwhile, an official still from the episode was unveiled by Disney+, showcasing a heartfelt moment between Baby Yoda and Mando.

Just like previous teasers, the sneak peek didn't outright feature Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka Tano to preserve the episode's biggest secret. Instead, the short teaser highlights the arrival of Mando and The Child in the forest moon of Corvus, setting the stage for another high-stakes episode. For those who haven't seen the episode yet, the teaser serves as a perfect introduction. 

On a separate note, the official still that was released essentially captured the strong bond between Mando and Baby Yoda. While Season 1 showed the early beginnings of the father-son dynamic of the two characters, Season 2 took it up a notch by fleshing out the relationship of the runaway duo even more. 

The first four episodes showed glimpses of the unique bond between Mando and Baby Yoda, seemingly confirming that the two characters are now comfortable with each other. "Chapter 13" elevated that bond through the eyes of Ahsoka, ultimately acknowledging that The Child strongly responds to Mando more than anyone. 

It's safe to say that Mando and Baby Yoda's Clan of Two status will still be in effect in the foreseeable future. Not only that, it's likely that the mission of finding The Child's origin could end up being unnecessary since the Yoda-like creature might already be at home in the first place.
