Season 2 of Star Wars series The Mandalorian comes to DisneyPlus on Oct. 30

The Star Wars streaming series, featuring superstar puppet Baby Yoda (aka the Child), wrapped filming for season 2 just days before film production just about everywhere shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It was also reported this week that LED StageCraft technology developed by Industrial Light and Magic for The Mandalorian season 1 — an alternative to the green screen, which would have reflected off the lead character’s armor — could help other film productions operate with pandemic safety measures in place.

And if you loved the score for The Mandalorian season 1, an eight-LP vinyl box set of the work by Ludwig Göransson is available to pre-order (for $200 U.S.).
