'The Mandalorian' Season 2: Peyton Reed seemingly confirms he's directing an episode, fans are thrilled
Reed teased fans with a photo of a director's chair with his name on it and a Mandalorian helmet sitting on top of it
It might not have been one of those Star Wars Day celebrations where fans would be in droves heading for the outdoors, but there's still enough to celebrate on May 4. If Leslye Headland show running a new Disney+ Star Wars series was news, Taika Waititi working on a full-length feature film was another piece of good news for fans.
In another bit where it seems to be a confirmation, related to Season 2 of 'The Mandalorian' director Peyton Reed teased fans with a photo on Twitter of a director's chair with his name on it and a Mandalorian helmet sitting on top of it. Reed is best known for directing 'Ant-Man' and 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At the moment, it sure looks like Reed will helm at least one episode of the upcoming season.
Fans on their part were thrilled to bits. "I love how The Mandalorian wiki page updated before my eyes. Congrats Peyton!" tweeted a fan. 'The Ant-alorian" wrote another fan. "That's a hell ya from me," exclaimed another fan. "It’s the Mandalorian BUT WITH ANTS!!!" screamed a fan. "It would be nice to see your work on this show :)" said another fan. "What a cool picture!! Love it," a fan tweeted.
"Did you get to keep the chair?" asked one of the fans in jest. "Bring it on! This is the way" read one of the tweets. "If he doesn't turn tiny in this episode I will not like it," remarked one of the fans.
Other directors on the show's second season are set to include Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, and series star Carl Weathers.
'The Mandalorian' stars Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian, Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, Carl Weathers as Greef Carga, Werner Herzog as The Client and Emily Swallow as The Armorer.
