Star Wars just released a second trailer for the upcoming Disney+ series, The Mandalorian. The trailer offered some new footage, and fans had a little bit of a glimpse of what's to come in the show. Of course, it is inevitable that fans analyze the clip frame by frame. But a particular scene caught the attention of a handful of Star Wars fans.

Seen in the minute twenty mark of the trailer, Gina Carano's Kara Dune greets Boba Fett with a handshake. And it was not just a regular handshake, fans think that the greeting was very similar to that of the handshake seen in the movie Predator.

In case you didn't know, Carl Weathers, who will play the role of Greef Carga in the show, was also the star of the film Predator which made its premiere back in 1987. The so-called "Predator handshake" was a scene he did with Arnold Schwarzenegger which has now become an iconic part of the film.

There's no telling if it was actually the iconic handshake but it wouldn't be impossible for the series to somehow include references from other movies. Especially since this one is perceived as a nod to one of Carl Weathers' movies, who is a part of the show, it's likely that Weathers will find it familiar too.

In case you aren't familiar with the handshake, you can check out the scene from Predator below on the 50-second mark.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian premieres November 12 on Disney+.
