How much does Disney Plus cost?
In the US, the service costs $7 a month. You can also save a bit by plunking down $70 for the annual plan, which works out to $5.83 a month. Unlike Mulan, which cost an additional $30 for US viewers who didn't wish to wait until it became free, The Mandalorian is free without delay to all Disney Plus subscribers.
International pricing and availability varies. In Australia, Disney Plus costs AU$9 a month or AU$90 a year; UK residents pay £6 per month or £60 a year; and Canadians are charged CA$9 a month, or CA$90 a year. See our full Disney Plus explainer for more international pricing.
How do I group-watch Disney Plus?
Even if your Star Wars-loving family and friends are in different houses, you can still watch The Mandalorian together (sort of) with Disney Plus' GroupWatch feature. You'll find the GroupWatch option to the right of the play button, and you can invite up to six people to all stream the show at the same time. Once you're watching together, you can share emojis to react to the action. Here are the full details on how to group-watch Disney Plus.
Is there a trailer I can watch?
The official Mandalorian season 2 trailer dropped in September, and a special-look trailer hit in October. You can watch the official trailer below.
Like the first season, season 2 comprises eight episodes, released each Friday. And as it did last season, Disney is calling each episode a "chapter" and started season 2 with chapter 9. Here's the schedule -- note our recaps contain spoilers:
Directors for the new season include creator Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed and Robert Rodriguez.
Who's in it?
Pedro Pascal returns as Din Djarin, aka the Mandalorian. Other returning cast members include Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon and Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, the Jedi Padawan of Anakin Skywalker. And Boba Fett makes an explosive return, played by Temuera Morrison, who was his father Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
