Robert Rodriquez Rumored to Direct An Episode in Season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian‘. So much new news about The Mandalorian! We can’t help but get excited for the new season set to premiere on Disney+ in October 2020. IT is currently unknown if the series will be delayed due to production delays, but for now we are holding up hope that Lucasfilm will get the series up and running in time for the premiere.
One of the most intriguing aspects of the series has been the valuable input from various directors who have come together to bring us the story of The Mandalorian. Season One saw Bryce Dallas Howard, Deborah Chow, Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, and showrunner Dave Filoni direct various episodes and recently, rumors began to swirl that James Mangold and Robert Rodriguez would direct episodes in Season 2, alongside returning director, Bryce Dallas Howard.
Though James Mangold very quickly turned to social media to snub those rumors about himself it has been silent in Camp Rodriguez about the name drop for season 2. Even going so far as to be confirmed by HNEntertainment due to the silence seeming like an omission.
“HN Entertainment can now confirm from our sourcing that Robert Rodriguez indeed worked on The Mandalorian and that part of the rumor is accurate,” shared HNE. “Rodriguez is no stranger to large-scale visual effects as he recently directed the ambitious sci-fi manga adaptation Alita: Battle Angel for writer/producer James Cameron.”
We can’t wait to see how the story unfolds in season 2, especially with the announcement that Ahsoka Tano is set to appear in the series as a live-action character for the first time. Actress Rosario Dawson has been cast in the role, though we do not know which episode Ahsoka will first appear in. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Star Wars and Disney+!
