James Mangold Shoots Down Rumors of Him Directing The Mandalorian Season 2 Episodes

Over the last week or so rumor sites were posting that James Mangold and Robert Rodriguez would be directing episodes on The Mandalorian Season 2. This hit a peak yesterday when bigger sites such as IGN picked up the rumor and ran with it, and it appears to be completely false.

In a Tweet replying to Ron Howard, James Mangold says he’s not doing The Mandalorian Season 2 and never even discussed it:

That seems pretty definitive, and the sites running that seemed to really make him mad as he then talked about sites using another rumor site as a source.

The Mandalorian Season 2 arrives in October, and it’s obviously going to be awesome, it’s just not going to have James Mangold involved.
