Speaking on a virtual panel at the recent ATX Television Festival, The Mandalorian producer Jon Favreau made it clear that despite the coronavirus pandemic, season two will still be arriving on Disney Plus come October 2020.

“We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lock down. Thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we have been able to do all of our visual effects and editing and post production remotely through systems that had been set up by those companies for us.”

We spoke at length to ILM Animation Supervisor Hal Hickel on Making Tracks about his Star Wars career and he touched on season two of The Mandalorian.

The second season apparently picks up right where the first season left us, and with the show already confirmed for a third season Favreau made it clear just how much fun they were having producing the show.

“As we explore partnering with new filmmakers and having new characters and going deeper with the characters we already have, it’s really been very fun and fulfilling and I hope people are having as much fun seeing it as we are having making it.”
