In a time of uncertainty for Star Wars fans, one thing has remained steady throughout: The Mandalorian Season 2 release date. The Disney+ series wrapped filming in February, and the prospective release of October 2020 has yet to be changed. While the series production remains on track, Lucasflim has yet to release even a hint of a glimpse of a new trailer. However, a recent leak gives specific dates we might see our first look at Season 2 of the live-action Star Wars show, along with some pretty compelling evidence.
According to LRM Online, TheMandalorian Season 2 trailer will air during the NBA playoffs this weekend, during either Game 2 (which airs August 20 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN), or Game 3 (set for August 22 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC. Though lacking official confirmation from Disney or Lucasfilm, there is some substance to these rumors.
Disney was supposed to host Star Wars Celebration between August 18-21, though canceled the event due to the ongoing health crisis. Since the first trailer for the series debuted at Celebration last year, the Season 2 trailer was widely expected to follow suit this year. Should a trailer premiere during one of these games, it would be right on schedule.
