Here are just some of the ecstatic reactions going around on social media…

Sasha Banks appeared in the trailer as a mysterious hooded figure and a lot of folks think she’s playing a very familiar character.

MORE FROM THE WEB
Following on from his decision to find somewhere for his adorable charge to be safe in the season 1 finale, the trailer teases that Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin will learn that he needs to take the Child to the Jedi – though that’s not something he’s keen on doing, given the Mandalorian people’s historical rivalry with the ancient order. But on he’ll go and there will be lots of action, intrigue and a lot more GIF-able Baby Yoda moments along the way.
This trailer still keeps a lot back, though, leaving many of the rumors and reports we’ve heard about the season unconfirmed. For instance, Rosario Dawson joining the cast as Ahsoka Tano, the return of Boba Fett and Katee Sackhoff turning up as Bo-Katan Kryze. But playing their cards close to their chest worked so well last year and as such, it makes sense to repeat the trick this time.
The Mandalorian season 2 premieres on Disney Plus on October 30th.
