'Star Wars' fans who have been worried that the return of Mando on Disney+ might be delayed need not worry any longer, as it has been confirmed that he will arrive back on our screens later this year, as planned.
With many of Disney+'s Marvel TV series currently on-hold mid-production, there is still hope for fans of the 'Star Wars' spin-off series. 'The Mandalorian' season two wrapped filming before productions began to be shut down, and is currently on track to arrive this October according to Disney CEO Bob Chapek.
Speaking to CNBC regarding Shanghai reopening their Disney theme park, he also confirmed "there will be no delay on 'Mandalorian'", which is currently being worked on in post-production.
The news comes just days after news that fan-favourite character Boba Fett would be popping up in the upcoming season. While not confirmed, it is believed that actress Rosario Dawson has been cast as Ahsoka Tano in the character's first live-action role.
Arguably Disney+'s most successful series to date, the series has also lined up season three of 'The Mandalorian'. The third entry in the series is already in pre-production with Jon Favreau and his team busy working on the series from home.
Disney Plus has certainly been stepping up to the Netflix plate of late, announcing a number of new shows will be coming to the streaming service in the future such as the Leonardo DiCaprio executive produced series 'The Right Stuff', as well as a rebooted series of Nic Cage's 'National Treasure'.
However, fans of Marvel's Cinematic Universe will have to strap themselves in for the long haul if they've been looking forward to an update in this franchise. All of the Disney+ spin-off series are believed to be held up currently. Even before productions were halted, all of the series were scheduled for a 2021 release, at the very earliest.
