Fortnite Leak Suggests The Mandalorian (And Baby Yoda) Skins Are Coming
You’ll be able to play as Din Djarin in Fortnite before any in-universe Star Wars games.
As the second season of The Mandalorian reaches its halfway point, a new Fortnite leak has suggested that the eponymous bounty hunter will be available as a premier skin in the Season 5 battle pass. Earlier this month, a dataminer leaked a collaboration between Fortnite and Disney+, revealing that players who spent money in Fortnite could get a free two-month subscription to Disney+ if they weren’t already subscribed. It’s no surprise then that Fortnite players will be seeing further collaboration with Disney+, with The Mandalorian being the streaming service’s flagship series.

The leaked image shows the Mandalorian front and center, with two unrelated skins behind him. Baby Yoda is also in the image, hovering in his pod slightly behind Mando. The Star Wars character has also appeared in other leaked promotional shots, right alongside the battle pass icon.

Players have speculated that the image could mean a full Star Wars-themed season is coming, similar to the Marvel season that is currently in progress. Others have suggested that the next season will focus more on Mando himself as the season’s pivotal character.
This isn’t the first time Fortnite has seen a big Star Wars collaboration. Infamously, Fortnite was the only place where fans could hear the “Palpatine broadcast” that Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker’s entire plot was based around--meaning Fortnite is basically a part of the official Star Wars canon at this point.
Fortnite Season 4 will come to a conclusion on December 1 with the highly anticipated Fortnite Galactus event.
