Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a new interview that “The Mandalorian” was lucky to pull off its second season, wrapping up five days before the coronavirus lockdown began.
- Some postproduction had to be done from home, though. But the show had mostly finished production at that point.
- Kennedy said:“Even though we wondered to what extent people could work remotely, our IT department and ILM had everybody up and running within a week, working from home and continuing to work in the cutting room and on visual effects shots. It was pretty staggering how quickly they got everybody up and running.”
October release date expected
- Disney CEO Bob Chapek said back in May that Disney expected the second season to launch in October, CNBC reports. The production finished before the pandemic led to worldwide shutdowns.
When will the season 2 trailer drop?
We have no idea when the trailer for the second season of “The Mandalorian” will be released. Some recent rumors suggested it would be released during the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers games last Thursday and Saturday but no trailer came to fruition, as I wrote about for Deseret.com. Guess we will have to wait and see what happens next.
