Favreau and Filoni’s The Mandalorian partnership
when Favreau first spoke about doing this child and having it be of Yoda’s species, Filoni reacted as t: “When he brought up in the very beginning of doing this child and having it be of Yoda’s species, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s very tricky, because there’s never been this before outside of Yoda, and then Yaddle in the prequels on the Jedi Council. It’s kind of a sacred thing … We just have to be responsible when we’re telling a story with what we’re deciding to do. The fans want to know things are a calculated, careful decision. Then if you tell a good story, most of the time they go with it.”

What to expect from The Mandalorian season 2
The Mandalorian’s showrunner Jon Favreau hasn’t confirmed any new cast members for season 2. Of course, Favreau and Filoni don’t have that benefit going into The Mandalorian season 2. Esposito said, “There will be more of the villain, Moff Gideon, in The Mandalorian season 2”, they pick up right from season 1 and added “He is very much a passenger to the experience in unexpected ways — not knowing what’s to come, He’s going into very dangerous territory. not knowing how much or how best to protect the child, they’re finding new ways to push but we don’t know how far he will go to do that.” pascal said.
Season 2 will also involve commanding a “larger vehicle”, spending some personal time with Baby Yoda, and “going toe-to-toe with Mando. Esposito also added, Who knows? It’s an iconic battle. I want to disarm him mentally as well.
