Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin finally takes flight in the latest teaser for the second season of The Mandalorian.

Although his armour is reminiscent of iconic Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett’s, the two differ in many ways, and one of them being Djarin’s inability to fly. That’s all about to change though in the sophomore season of Disney+’s hit live action show, which sees the protector of The Child finally blasting off with his own jet pack.

The new special look at The Mandalorian debuted last night exclusively on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, during halftime of the NFL game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys.

Picking up where the first season left off, the new season sees the Mando on a mission to repatriate Baby Yoda with its own people – possibly the Jedi – while facing stiff opposition from the dark forces under the command of Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon.

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, with guest stars Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito.
