Who is in the cast of The Mandalorian series 2?

The Mandalorian – Pedro Pascal

Of course, the show’s titular character will be returning in the second instalment as he has been tasked with reuniting The Child with its own kind.

In a special look video for the new season, Din Djarin is seen reuniting with friends Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) and Cara Dune (Gina Carano), and he is need of their assistance once more.

He says: “I’m here on business, I need your help. I’ve been quested to bring this one back to his kind. If I can locate other Mandalorians, they can guide me.”

The Mandalorian is played by Chilean actor Pascal, who is also known for his role as Javier Peña in the Netflix hit Narcos

He also played Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones and Agent Whiskey in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

The star is on Instagram and he has been sharing plenty of teasers for season two, including a poster of The Mandalorian and The Child, with the message: “Wherever I go, he goes,” which is a classic line from the new season.

Moff Gideon – Giancarlo Esposito

Antagonist Moff Gideon was introduced towards the end of the first season and he is a former Imperial boss who has his eye on The Child.

At the end of the first season, he almost killed The Mandalorian and his friends, but they managed to escape through a tunnel. The Mandalorian then shot him down in a final shootout.

However, he managed to survive and emerged from his ship in possession of the Darksaber – an ancient saber which would later be wielded by Darth Maul.

Fans believe the Darksaber storyline will continue into the second season and they are excited to learn more about Gideon’s past.

The character is played by Giancarlo Esposito, who is best known for his role as Gus Fring in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

During an interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the actor said he wanted to spend all of his time with Baby Yoda.

He added: “I have to pinch myself that I’m a part of this franchise because as a young man I watched Star Wars and I was taken to a different Galaxy, a different place, yet I acknowledged and recognised that there was some mythological story being told here that I thought had relevance and merit to my life.”

Cara Dune – Gina Carano

The fearless and feisty Cara Dune was introduced in the first season, when The Mandalorian and The Child were looking for a new place to lay low.

At first, she came across as a threat to The Mandalorian, but he ended up gaining her as an ally to protect a village from raiders, and the pair bonded over The Child.

At the end of the first season, Cara left The Mandalorian behind to stay with Greef Karga, so fans will be excited to see her return as a former shock trooper.

Her character is played by ex-mixed martial artist Gina Carano, who also starred in Deadpool and Fast & Furious 6.

She is a former MMA fighter and fitness model, and speaking to Extra TV she said: “I have been doing a lot of different jobs my entire career and for me I felt I had been in the desert a little bit lately, and it was like somebody plucked me out of the desert and put me in the most lush, beautiful atmosphere I have ever been put in.”

Greef Karga – Carl Weathers

Greef Karga was The Mandalorian’s boss and he was in charge of the Bounty Hunters’ Guild. He ordered The Mandalorian to capture The Child, but his motives changed when he realised how much of an asset The Child was.

He had planned to turn the creature in to the Imperials, but when The Child saved his life, he had a change of heart and decided to help The Mandalorian protect him.

In season two he is seen welcoming The Mandalorian back and he is ready to help him protect The Child once more, and reunite him with his own species.

His character is played by actor and former footballer Carl Weathers, who is best known for his roles in the Rocky film series and Predator.

The show’s creator Jon Favreau explained how Weathers had a directorial role in the series, telling Mashable India: “We worked him into the show a lot more than he agreed to do. And now, in season two, he’ll be directing for us.

“By Carl being on this high-tech innovative set that we’ve developed for these specific stories, he’s seen how we have put this together.”

Fans also learned that WWE hero Sasha Banks will be playing a mysterious Jedi-like character, but her true identity has not been revealed.

There were also rumours Rosario Dawson would be playing the role of Ahsoka Tano – a Jedi Padawan from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Although it has not yet been confirmed, Deadwood actor Timothy Olyphant was said to be playing Cobb Vanth – another bounty hunter.

Bo-Katan Kryze, a female Mandalorian, will also be played by Katee Sackhoff, who has previously starred in Battlestar Galactica and Riddick.

Sackhoff’s character has also been brought forward from the Clone Wars series.
