The Mandalorian Season 2 is coming soon and, with it, will hopefully come more answers to some of the various stories and elements introduced towards the end of Season 1. Obviously, there's hope for more on Moff Gideon with that reveal he's in possession of the darksaber and, of course, because he's played by the wonderful Giancarlo Esposito.
Esposito is hyped to be a part of the Star Wars universe, especially after his Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series" for his Mandalorian role. TV Insider spoke to the actor about the Disney+ series and what it means for him to be a part of the world of Star Wars:
Giancarlo Esposito gave some real food for thought ahead of The Mandalorian Season 2, though very little about Moff Gideon. It seems the thing he's really interested in is the dynamic between the bounty hunter and The Child, a relationship that will no doubt be expanded on as Season 2 continues.
That's not to say his role is chopped liver. Giancarlo Esposito had plenty to dote about in regards to his role as Moff Gideon and the overall show he's been blessed to be a part of:
Giancarlo Esposito seems to be really satisfied with how things are going for The Mandalorian, which is not surprising. The series was one of the top acclaimed shows in 2019 and one of the most universally loved Star Wars entries in the franchise in a while. Hopefully, Season 2 will carry its reputation even further, and maybe even net a few other actors on the cast some Emmy love as well.
The Mandalorian Season 2 is expected to arrive on Disney+ October of 2020. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for all things related to Star Wars, and for the latest news happening in television and movies.
