As the Mandalorian’s second season reaches its midpoint, a new Fortnite leak suggests that the bounty hunter who bears his name in the Season 5 Battle Pass will be available as a premier skin.
Earlier this month, a data miner leaked a collaboration between Fortnite and Disney +, revealing that players who spend money on Fortnite can get a two-month free subscription to Disney + if they haven’t subscribed yet. Not surprisingly, Fortnite players will see more collaboration with Disney +, and The Mandalorian is the flagship series of streaming services.

The leaked image shows the front and center of the Mandalorian, with two irrelevant skins behind it. Baby Yoda is also in the image, floating in a pod just behind the mand. Star Wars characters also appear in other leaked promotional shots right next to the Battle Pass icon.
Players speculate that this image could mean a full Star Wars-themed season, as well as the ongoing Marvel season. Others have suggested that the next season will focus more on Mand himself as the central character of the season.
This isn’t the first time Fortnite has seen a major Star Wars collaboration. Notoriously, it was the only place where fans could hear the “Palpatine Broadcast” on which the entire plot of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was based. So Fortnite is basically part of the official Star Wars Canon at this point.
