The Mandalorian, the Star Wars show that debuted Baby Yoda, reintroduced Boba Fett and witnessed the resurrection of a certain favorite Jedi, will return for a season 3 and many sequels on Disney Plus. This summer, a behind-the-scenes program unveiled the production mysteries of the season 2 finale. Season 3 will begin filming this fall.
When is season 3 coming to Disney Plus?
Currently, there is no release date for the next season, but it will follow The Book of Boba Fett (which is scheduled to start Dec. 29 and got its first trailer on Nov. 1).
Carl Weathers, who portrays Bounty Hunter Guild chief Greef Karga, tweeted about preparing for season 3 in October. (He has already stated that he will helm at least 1 episode) “Mandalorian, season #3 of Yours Truly begins tomorrow,” he added. “Greef Karga will return to Disney+.”
As a result, season 3 will most likely arrive on Disney Plus in 2022. It’ll most likely be released after the Obi-Wan Kenobi program, which began filming early on in this year.
What can we expect from Season 3?
Season 2 concluded with a post-credits sequence hinting at Boba Fett’s upcoming show. It wasn’t obvious at first whether this was season 3, with the spotlight turning to Boba or a spinoff. The showrunner, Jon Favreau, quickly emphasized that it was a spinoff and that Mando’s adventures will proceed in season 3.
As Season 2 seems to finish up the Baby Yoda narrative line, with Luke Skywalker taking Grogu for Jedi training, you may be wondering where the program may go from here. Mando’s purpose, reconnecting the small guy with his kind, has been completed, thus his interests will alter. Mando (actual name Din Djarin) also encountered another squad of Mandalorians headed by Bo-Katan Kryze in Season 2. She had been on a quest to recover their homeworld Mandalore and reclaim Gideon’s Darksaber (a Mandalorian emblem of authority). Mando acquired control of the Darksaber in the finale episode and unwittingly had become the commander of the Mandalorians. He appears to be joining Bo-quest Katan’s in season 3.
Mando is not the normal Mandalorian. Bo-Katan stated that he is a Child of the Watch, a “cult of religious fanatics that rebelled against Mandalorian culture.” This is why he shouldn’t take off his mask and show his face to anybody else.
Disney also revealed three of their planned Star Wars programs, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, and Rangers of the New Republic, which would be based at about the same time as The Mandalorian, so narrative strands from those might bleed into the third season and perhaps in upcoming future seasons as well.
A lot has transpired ever since. The firing of prominent Mandalorian actress Gina Carano (Cara Dune) in February 2021 disrupted her spinoff, Rangers of the New Republic, which is now being put on hold indefinitely. The series, which has just released its first teaser, will premiere on December 29, 2021.
Despite the hype, Favreau and his exec producer Dave Filoni have been tight-lipped about when The Mandalorian Third season will premiere.
Now, it appears that fans will be in for a special surprise on November 12, 2021, when Disney+ Day takes place. Disney is anticipated to make a variety of intriguing revelations on Disney+ Day, similar to the previous year. According to one recent source, Star Wars fans might expect to see some scenes of Season 3 of The Mandalorian, which is now shooting in Manhattan Beach, California. Given that now the program only started shooting a month earlier, and also that star Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin) is still shooting for HBO’s The Last of Us, it’s doubtful that any footage would be broadcast if this unsubstantiated story is accurate.
Nevertheless, any behind-the-scenes peek about what to anticipate when season 3 eventually begins would be appreciated by Mando-starved followers at this juncture.
