As the premiere of the second season of The Mandalorian inches closer, the marketing for the hit Star Wars show has already ramped up in recent weeks. The show's main trailer already laid out the groundwork of what to expect, but a wide array of reveals that followed provided more intrigue on the narrative direction of the sophomore season.
Several pieces of The Mandalorian merchandise featured Din Djarin's new armor as well as a spoiler-heavy plot point that revolved around Baby Yoda. Additionally, new cardboard standees highlight some of the core characters of the show such as Greef Karga, Cara Dune, and a returning alien species in the form of The Mythrol.
Not only that, the release schedule of the highly-acclaimed Star Wars series has seemingly been unveiled. And now, another important piece of promotional material for the hit Star Wars show has arrived.
Disney+ officially unveiled four new pieces of character art for The Mandalorian which features Din Djarin, Cara Dune, Greef Karga, and The Child.
First off, Pedro Pascal's Din Djarin is featured in the newly-released character art, showcasing his armor and weapons that will be used throughout the duration of the sophomore season.
Gina Carano's Cara Dune appears to be ready to help out Mando and The Child once again during the upcoming season of the live-action Star Wars series.
Carl Weathers' Greef Karga is poised to be an integral part in Din Djarin's effort to protect The Child from Moff Gideon's forces this time around.
Baby Yoda is looking as cute as ever as he prepares for a galaxy-spanning journey during The Mandalorian season 2.
WHAT THIS MEANS
While this new batch of character art from The Mandalorian doesn't reveal much, it still provides fascinating looks at the core characters of the series. More so, the trailer already teased a reunion among the protagonists, and it will be interesting to see how that particular moment will play out.
A key highlight of the season one finale of The Mandalorian was the chemistry among the four characters above, and it's a safe bet that this dynamic will be further utilized during the show's sophomore run. Interestingly, many are wondering how Cara Dune and Greef Karga's relationship evolved over time since the duo was left behind in Nevarro. It remains to be seen what brings the runaway duo of Mando and The Child back to Nevarro, but there's a good chance that they will seek the help of their friends to fix a certain problem.
The hype surrounding The Mandalorian is already at an all-time high, especially after nabbing multiple Emmy wins along with the title of Fall's most anticipated returning show. Given that, expectations are high for the sophomore season, but it seems that The Mandalorian is poised to deliver based on what's been revealed along with the mysteries that have yet to be uncovered.
All in all, what danger awaits the runaway duo of Mando and The Child is anybody's guess, but it's nice to think that they still have allies to count on when their backs are against the wall.
