The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda win big at the Creative Arts Emmys!

Jon Favreau’s Star Wars spin-off space western series took home five statuettes, winning for Outstanding Visual Effects (which was the first Emmy ever for Disney+!), Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour), Outstanding Sound Mixing For a Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) and Animation, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) and Animation, and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half-Hour).

In all, The Mandalorian has racked up 15 total Emmy nominations. With its traction, it is more than likely to continue collecting more Emmys as the awards show continues on to the Primetime Emmys this weekend. It is also up for Outstanding Drama Series as well as Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for Taika Waititi’s role as droid IG-11 and Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series for Giancarlo Esposito’s performance as Moff Gideon.
  The series is set five years after 1983's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and follows a bounty hunter who is protecting a coveted Jedi-powered being, simply called The Child, from falling into the hands of the villainous Imperial Empire. The bounty hunter is from the same rogue warrior class as legacy Star Wars character Jango Fett.

Season 2 is set to debut on Disney+ this October 30 with the much-talked-about new cast member Rosario Dawson as fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano, who was Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan during the Clone Wars. The sophomore season also includes newcomers Michael Biehn and Bill Burr as well as returning cast members Gina Carano, Esposito and Carl Weathers and Omid Abtahi.
