Season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian’ Will Feature Some ‘Epic’ Lightsaber Action. Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon for the famed Star Wars Series recently shared some insight into season two, while remaining relatively spoiler free. Esposito made an appearance at FAN EXPO Vancouver
“The prop guys are wondering about me because I was in a bit of a commotion and a bit of a struggle with someone else, which I’m hoping you will enjoy when you see it,” Esposito said during the expo. “Major, major, epic, epic lightsaber action happening on this show, and I should mention that I’m the only character in this first season who was able to be honored with having that lightsaber. So it feels wonderful.”
After Giancarlo’s comment buzz immediately began that Moff Gideon may be in an epic battle with the internet’s favorite Star Wars character, The Child, aka “Baby Yoda”, to which Esposito quickly backtracked to clarify his meaning.
“Well, no way. [Laughs],” Esposito added. “It ain’t gonna happen, baby! Anything is possible, and you keep watching. Because although the baby has some incredible power, without having to wield the Darksaber, I think the baby is so curious about what this is. So you will be enthused and inspired when you see the scene I’m referring to in Season 2, which is to come in October. Keep watching.”
This does beg the question then, who does Moff Gideon battle with? Will he go after Din Jerrin (Mando) or is there another character that has yet to be introduced in the series that will give Gideon some trouble? Though we don’t know the answers to these questions, we can not wait for season 2 to premiere in October 2020!
