PHOTOS: Disney and Lucasfilm Announce “Mando Mondays,” a Bounty of New Products and Digital Content to Celebrate ‘The Mandalorian’
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Mandalorian fans. Last Tuesday Disney+ dropped the first trailer for the highly anticipated Season 2 and while it didn’t reveal much it definitely builds hype for the series which follows our favorite bounty hunter making his way through the dangerous and villainous galaxy after the collapse of the Galactic Empire. The second season of The Mandalorian will begin airing October 30 on Disney+. Check out the season 2 trailer below:
Adding to the excitement for the series, Lucasfilm and Disney announced “Mando Mondays” promising to debut new products and digital content to celebrate The Mandalorian every Monday.
