The full list of directors coming into the Star Wars universe for The Mandalorian season two has been revealed.
After fans were treated to their first look at The Mandalorian season two in a striking new trailer, the list of directors helming the eight episodes has been revealed, featuring some surprising names as well as some surprising ones. Creator Jon Favreau will once again direct, as well as bringing back season one directors Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa and Bryce Dallas Howard. But there’s three interesting additions stepping behind the camera for the second season of the Star Wars series.
As ComicBook.com reports, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed is the first surprising addition, who is also working on Ant-Man 3 which recently cast Jonathan Majors in the film as Kang the Conqueror. From Dusk Till Dawn, Spy Kids and Sin City director Robert Rodriguez has also joined season two, while The Mandalorian star Carl Weathers will both star in the series and direct an episode. The seven directors have an interesting level of experience between them, although with an eight-episode season, it means that one of them will direct two episodes. Given the Star Wars series is pushing in the direction of Mandalore and the Darksaber, it’s a sensible guess that either The Clone Wars and Rebels alum Dave Filoni or Jon Favreau will also helm a second episode.
What do you make of the directors coming onboard The Mandalorian season two? Are you glad to see the returning names from the first season? What do you want to see in the new season of the Star Wars series? Sound-off in the comments below!
