Season Two of THE MANDALORIAN still on schedule for October.

Show producing is a complicated profession:

While speaking at the ATX TV festival remotely, Jon Favreau confirmed that The Mandalorian season 2 will premiere on time in October. As it turns out, Favreau and crew were a lot further along than most expected when the world’s current state of affairs threw everything into chaos. Baby Yoda will be back to help try and make the end of the year a bit better from when it started. Favreau had this to say.

“We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lockdown, so thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we’ve been able to do all the editing visual effects remotely… It will be available as planned on Disney+ in October.”

Sabine Wren to join THE MANDALORIAN?

It would make a certain amount of sense. Via Coming Soon:

Temuera Morrison to be Boba Fett in THE MANDALORIAN.

Hopefully, they won’t screw this role up for him.

Ahsoka Tano coming to Season 2 of THE MANDALORIAN.

‘Hidden Jedi’ is a complicated profession:

Confirmed by Variety. My wife is currently chewing through CLONE WARS, but even I know that this is a big deal for Star Wars fans*. It’s going to be interesting to see a no-fooling Jedi show up in THE MANDALORIAN next season.

*I am not a Star Wars fan. It’s not that I don’t like the correct percentage of the movies; I do, and I’ve seen some of them a bunch of times. It’s just that I don’t have a sufficient grasp of The Knowledge to qualify; which is something I abruptly discovered the first time I played in a Star Wars TTRPG. It was educational! And very, very humbling.

Season 2 of THE MANDALORIAN dropping in October 2020.

Nobody reading this will probably be all that surprised, of course. Disney was about as likely to not renew THE MANDALORIAN as they would be to suddenly declare everything in their catalog before 2000 AD to be public domain. But, you know, it’s nice to have a date. Certainly the people in charge of making sure that there are BABY YODAS FOR CHRISTMAS THIS TIME, BOB* will be thrilled for the heads-up.

*To be fair: toy marketing is a complicated profession.

Baby Yoda coming to Build-A-Bear.

I bring this up (via Instapundit) not because some or all of you might or might not want a Baby Yoda Build-A-Bear.

Build-A-Bear is giving the people what they’ve been patiently waiting for — Baby Yoda stuffed animals.

Yes, build your very own version of The Child, you may.

The news was announced at an investment conference on Tuesday by Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John.

Shocking news: THE MANDALORIAN renewed for Season 2.

Are you shocked? I am shocked. Everybody is shocked. See the guy below? That’s what ‘shocked’ looks like, for that species.

Oh, and hey: astounding news from the world of science! It turns out that water is wet. Go figure, huh?

Hrm. They’re releasing the next THE MANDALORIAN episode two days early.

Interesting: “Disney+ has announced that the next episode of The Mandalorian is set to be released early on Wednesday December 18th. The episodes are usually released on Friday, but this next episode will hit Disney+ right before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is released in theaters.” I hate to admit it, but: I’m much more interested in seeing LITTLE WOMEN next week than I am to see the new Star Wars this week. And I know that I’ll like the new Star Wars, too. I am generally a sucker for them, even now. But I’m not plotting to see it early or anything. We’ll go when we go.

On the other hand: new THE MANDALORIAN episode two days early! That’s awesome. Can’t wait.
