The two-minute trailer took viewers to a galaxy far, far away as the bounty hunter known as the Mandalorian and his little green friend nicknamed Baby Yoda, fought their way through the wretched hive of scum and villainy in the Star Wars universe.
“Wherever I go, he goes,” the Mandalorian, who is played by Pedro Pascal, can be heard saying in the trailer.
Disney made sure Tuesday’s trailer showcased everything that fans and Disney+ subscribers loved about the show’s first season. There were blaster gun battles, rusty spaceships, remnants of the evil Empire, and, of course, Baby Yoda being, well, cute.
The series, which launched Disney’s streaming efforts last November, was an instant success. The show was well-reviewed, dominated social chatter online, and even overshadowed the much-maligned “Star Wars” film, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which opened last December.
The highly anticipated second season of the hit series is shaping up to be another big win for Disney in a year where the company will take any win it can get.
The second season of “The Mandalorian” lands on Disney+ on October 30.
