Here is your first look at The Mandalorian season two
Baby Yoda is back! And some other, less popular characters
The hit Disney+ Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian returns for season two on October 30th, and the first images have been released.
Entertainment Weekly has the first images from the second season, and yes, they do feature Baby Yoda.

We also get a look at other returning characters including The Mandalorian himself Din Djarin, Gina Carano's Cara Dune, and Carl Weathers' Greef Karga. There is also a Tuskin Raider riding a Bantha.
But those are not Baby Yoda, so I am less excited about them.

"The new season is about introducing a larger story in the world," show creator Jon Favreau told Entertainment Weekly.
"The stories become less isolated, yet each episode has its own flavor, and hopefully we’re bringing a lot more scope to the show." added executive producer Dave Filoni. "Everything gets bigger, the stakes get higher, but also the personal story between the Child and the Mandalorian develops in a way I think people will enjoy."
New faces joining the cast for season two include Rosario Dawson, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Biehn, and Katee Sackhoff.
The Mandalorian debuted when Disney+ launched in November last year. Set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, it follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin, played by Pedro Pascal. He is accompanied on his journies by 'The Child' - aka Baby Yoda.
And while the show was generally well-received, it was Baby Yoda that really grabbed people's attention. The adorable character was instantly meme'd and the internet fell in love with him.
The Mandalorian is not the only new Star Wars content coming to Disney+ this year. The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is due to arrive in November, paying homage to one of the most infamous parts of Star Wars history.
