The artwork marks the arrival of the highly anticipated second season of Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian on Disney+.

Popular characters, The Mandalorian and the Child, are seen in the portrait and have since become global icons after the first season earlier this year.

‘We are honoured to unveil this portrait in collaboration with the esteemed National Portrait Gallery. 

‘The show and characters created by Jon Favreau have been embraced by fans across the UK who can now stand a step closer to inspect them on canvas before streaming the new episodes.’ 

Created by Favreau, The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and follows the travails of a lone gunfighter (the Mandalorian) making his way through a dangerous galaxy seeking a path that will lead to safety for the Child. 

While still an infant at the age of fifty years old, the Child is a mysterious alien pursued on behalf of Imperial interests.
