THE Mandalorian has hinted at the arrival of ANOTHER Star Wars icon during a ‘risky’ smuggling mission.
The Disney+ series returned last week for its second series and teased the return of Boba Fett in the final moments of the episode.

Now, a leaked synopsis for episode two has hinted at another potential character from the original film series making an appearance.
According to Movieweb, the synopsis reads: “The Mandalorian must ferry a passenger with precious cargo on a risky journey”.
Coupling that with promotional material showing the bounty hunter and The Child on a cargo ship, and the reference in season one to the Mon Calamari and the planet Karnac and some fans believe the show could be about to give a proper introduction to the alien race.
If so, that could pave the way for an appearance from the most iconic member of the Mon Calamari, Admiral Ackbar.

Admiral Ackbar was the leading military commander of the Rebel Alliance in 1983’s Return of the Jedi.
With The Mandalorian taking place five years after the events of the film, there is potential for the bounty hunter to cross paths with the Admiral.
The synopsis also makes Star Wars fans hopeful they will get to find out more about Sasha Banks’ character, who was seen in the trailer wearing a hood and waiting for Mando as the cargo ship docks.
Show boss Jon Favreau previously revealed about season two: “The new season is about introducing a larger story in the world.

“The stories become less isolated, yet each episode has its own flavor, and hopefully we’re bringing a lot more scope to the show.”
Executive producer Dave Filoni added: “Everything gets bigger, the stakes get higher, but also the personal story between the Child and the Mandalorian develops in a way I think people will enjoy.”
The Mandalorian is available on Disney+ with new season two episodes dropping every Friday.
