According to Bespin Bulletin, we’ll be seeing plenty of Darksaber action in season two of The Mandalorian. Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon, spoke about some an action sequence at FAN Expo Vancouver.
“The prop guys are wondering about me because I was in a bit of a commotion and a bit of a struggle with someone else which I’m hoping you will enjoy when you see it,” he told fans. “Major, major, epic, epic lightsaber action happening on this show.”
Will the Child be involved in this lightsaber action? Well, maybe, but not in a way we’d expect, according to Esposito:
“Although the baby has some incredible power, without having to wield the Darksaber, I think the baby is so curious about what this is.”Giancarlo Esposito
So maybe he doesn’t battle the child, or even Din Djarin. If not either of them, then who? There aren’t many possibilities for other lightsaber-wielding heroes. This only fuels our excitement for the show – and let me tell you, it’s already pretty darn high.
Season two of The Mandalorian comes to us this fall on Disney+. Stay tuned for more updates and news!
