“The Mandalorian” took the world by storm after premiering last November and took home seven awards last week during the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards. The series will return for its highly anticipated second season on Friday, Oct. 30, streaming only on Disney+, where the Mandalorian and the Child will continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through the dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire.
After fans experience the latest episode every Friday on Disney+, they can visit MandoMondays.com every Monday to see what new toys, collectibles, apparel, books, comics, digital content and more will be unveiled. Mando Mondays will run for nine weeks, culminating on Dec. 21.
“When ‘The Mandalorian’ debuted last year on Disney+, the show became an instant phenomenon, with fans of all ages expressing excitement for products related to its iconic characters – particularly the Child,” said president of Disney Consumer Products, Games and Publishing, Kareem Daniel. “This fall, as the world continues to watch the narrative unfold, we will further bring this unique Star Wars story to life through a must-have selection of toys, books, comics, digital content, and more.”
