The composer behind the second season of The Mandalorian revealed the new batch of episodes will head in a fresh direction.
There’s still a few months to go until The Mandalorian‘s second season arrives on Disney Plus, but the show’s composer recently teased what’s in store for fans when the Star Wars series returns to the streaming service with new episodes. We already have some idea of what to expect after Giancarlo Esposito opened up about the Darksaber and the “epic lightsaber action” as well as Katee Sackhoff reprising her role as Bo-Katan from The Clone Wars.
Ludwig Goransson recently spoke to Deadline about his work on the Star Wars show as well as other upcoming projects he’s worked on like Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. He explained work had already started on the score for season two months ago, expressing how excited he is for fans to see the series. He also teased the adventure will take the bounty hunter and Baby Yoda in some new directions that are “so fun.”
“We started a couple of months ago, and I’m extremely excited. Jon’s taking the story into places that I didn’t know existed, and I think it’s so fun.”

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.

The Star Wars series was written by Jon Favreau, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is also on board as a co-executive producer.
Dave Filoni directed the first episode of The Mandalorian and additional episodes of the Star Wars series were helmed by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa, and Jessica Jones director Deborah Chow.
