“The Mandalorian” – Season 2 Release Date

The Mandalorian” and Baby Yoda are on their way back to our homes.

The official Twitter account for the show announced Wednesday that the second season would premiere on Disney+ Oct. 30.

After premiering its first season in 2019, “The Mandalorian” became the most popular show to stream in the world. It stole the hearts of “Star Wars” fans who were hoping for something more grounded after the mixed reception of the new theatrical trilogy.

Since its release it has topped 60.5 million streams. Season one currently holds a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, both among critics and audience members. It also picked up 15 Primetime Emmy nominations, including ones for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for Giancarlo Esposito and Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for Taika Waititi.

Those eagerly awaiting the second season can expect to see Giancarlo Esposito and the Darksaber after Baby Yoda and his mysterious gift. We’ll also be treated to Rosario Dawson as the classic “Clone Wars” character, Ahsoka Tano and Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett.

In April, Variety reported that “The Mandalorian” had already been renewed for a third season. The “Star Wars” fandom never rests, but without a theatrically released film on Disney’s release calendar right now, “The Mandalorian” will have to scratch that itch.

New Chapter of WeRace Comic

We Race Comic – Episode 1: the future of racing is here

Transformation is part of history. Mankind is looking to the future. In the race towards tomorrow, the biggest challenge is to find one’s role in an ever- changing world.

It’s 2095. The introduction of the self-driving car has revolutionised the world of racing, but the debut of a new team is fraught with difficulty as it deals with demanding circuits, extreme race conditions and cars out of the pages of a science fiction story…Formula Warp is an unforgettable experience, pushing beyond the limits of human endeavour.

About We Race Comic

Scuderia Ferrari has produced the We Race Comic in collaboration with Giulio Gualtieri, a screenwriter and editor in chief who has worked on many major projects. The We Race Comic comic strip stems from a combination of passion for racing and the world of comics.

In the possibly not too far off future, it tells the story of a passion that spans several eras, without being bound by any limits: because the world can change, but feelings remain the same.
