What you need to know
- The Mandolorian Season 2 will have more lightsaber action, according to Giancarlo Esposito who plays Moff Gideon.
- The comments were made at FAN EXPO in Vancouver at a spotlight panel.
- Baby Yoda will not be wielding a lightsaber when this season launches in October.
One thing Star Wars is known for, and the Mandolorian is not, is its epic lightsaber battles. From the dance-like moves of the Prequels, the modern action of the Sequels, the violent explosive action of the games, nothing gets Star Wars fan more revved up than a good old lightsaber duel.
The Mandalorian Season One had a dearth of those kinds of battles, and Season 2 seems to be making up for it.
As reported by Comicbook.com:
The Mandalorian is coming to Disney+ in the UK next month when it launches, but users on all regions will have to wait till October for the next installment of this Star Wars story.
I am all for a good lightsaber battle. Loved most them in the Star Wars movies. However, I hope they don't sway too far from the formula that made the first season of The Mandalorian great. The episodes played out like an old spaghetti western movie, and I thought that was a great way to go.
