Directors Unveiled for The Mandalorian, Season 2
Well, Star Wars Day 2020 — Lockdown Edition — over. However, Star Wars rumor season is just heating up!
And, while there are rumors of spoilers starting to eke out…
A Mandalorian bit player was just revealing season-two spoilers on a certain livestream, if you're into that sort of thing. (So much for that NDA.) Tread cautiously.

We didn’t catch of them, yet.
However, we did see a couple of social posts from some would-be directors of The Mandalorian, Season 2:
— Peyton Reed (@MrPeytonReed) May 4, 2020
— Robert Rodriguez (@Rodriguez) May 5, 2020
The Alita: Battle Angel and Desperado filmmaker announced on Twitter on Monday (Star Wars Day, May the 4th) that he directed at least one episode in The Mandalorian season 2… In addition, Peyton Reed (Ant-Man and the Wasp) also posted that he was directing an episode of the Disney+ series in season 2.
The Mandalorian season 2 wrapped production in March. Apparently, Disney+’s social media embargo has ended on its directors announcing their participation, so there could be more directors coming out of the woodwork soon.
Showrunner Jon Favreau (Iron Man) previously told EW he would direct an episode of his series in season 2, and executive producer Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) is also directing at least one episode.
So, if you are scoring at home, thus far that means, the directorial lineup includes:
- John Favreau
- Dave Filoni
- Peyton Reed
- Robert Rodriques
We’ll keep an eye out for more news from The Mandalorian as May continues.
