The Mandalorian: Check Out This Concept Art From Chapter 2
A closer look at the art behind the new Star Wars series.
The Mandalorian's second episode, Chapter Two: The Child, gave us plenty of great Star Wars imagery. There's Baby Yoda, of course, but there's also the chase between our protagonist and the Jawa's Sandcrawler, plus the alien beast he encounters and eventually steals an egg from. Now, with Chapter Three right around the corner, the Star Wars Twitter account has revealed some of the concept art that shaped the look of this episode.
Nine images were released in total from six different artists. In the gallery below, the first three images are credited to Christian Alzmann; the fourth and fifth to Ryan Church; the sixth to Nick Gindraux & Doug Chiang; the seventh to Doug Chiang alone; the eight to John Park; and the ninth to Jama Jurabaev. The artwork shared looks very close to what ended up in the final episode.
The Mandalorian will run for eight episodes on Disney+, Disney's new streaming service. It stars Pedro Pascal as Din Jarron, a bounty hunter who finds himself the unexpected carer of a baby that resembles Yoda. The show is styled like a classic western of a samurai film, although some might argue that it needs to deepen its characters.
The next Star Wars movie, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, releases December 20.
