The Mandalorian, through two seasons, has managed to get the Star Wars fan base. The live action Star Wars series debuted on Disney + in November 2019 when the service launched. It ventured into uncharted territory as the franchise had never had a live action show before. But it paid off. Fans also have more to look forward to, such as The Mandalorian season 3 is currently in the works.
The first two seasons were largely devoted to the adventures of Pedro Pascal’s Mando / Din Djarin and the show’s real breakthrough star, Grogu / Baby Yoda. But the show seems to be radically different in Season 3, thanks to what happened in the Season 2 finale. With that in mind, here’s everything we know The Mandalorian season 3.
Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni will be returning for this The Mandalorian Season 3
While much remains hidden, as is often the case Star Wars projects prior to release, one thing is for sure; the creative core team returns. Both Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, who have led the series from the very beginning, will return The Mandalorian season 3. Favreau created the show and acts as the main writer, with Filoni, the architect behind it Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, serving as an executive producer and director. While much will change, the duo that made this show its success will still be at the helm of leading the ship into new territory.
Will return for Pedro Pascal The Mandalorian Season 3?
Pedro Pascal has since provided the voice of Mando The Mandalorian began. While he’s not always the man in the suit, the actor is a big part of the show. As such, Pascal will indeed return for another round of bounty hunter-related shenanigans in a galaxy far, far away. But he will miss his faithful companion, Grogu, aka Baby Yoda. That means the dynamic in the middle of the show will be changed so far. Be that as it may, we are still ready to follow Din Djarin as he travels through the galaxy.
Grogu is in with Luke Skywalker The Mandalorian Season 3
The season 2 finale of Mandalorian dropped a real bombshell on fans. Luke Skywalker, as played by Mark Hamill (obsolete with digital effects), made a glorious return to Star Wars. Mando and his crew were rescued by the Jedi, who miraculously dismantled the Dark Troopers. More importantly, he took Grogu under his wing to train him in the ways of the Jedi. The journey that we had taken for two full seasons had, in fact, come to an end. Grogu’s with Luke now. While that doesn’t necessarily mean the fans’ favorite character won’t be appearing in Season 3, it certainly could be the case. And if Grogu returns, it probably means we’ll be seeing more of Luke Skywalker. Regardless, Baby Yoda is now with Luke and that will radically change the dynamic.
Gina Carano will not be returning as Cara Dune The Mandalorian Season 3
Gina Carano was a big part of the show’s first two seasons as Cara Dune. However, the former shock trooper will not return The Mandalorian season 3. After controversial social media posts, Disney and Lucasfilm fired Gina Carano from the series. Moreover, it will no longer appear in the future Star Wars projects. It remains to be seen if the role of Cara Dune will be recast, or if the franchise will completely ignore the character in the future.
Other famous characters return The Mandalorian Season 3?
While Cara Dune won’t be back The Mandalorian season 3, we can probably expect other familiar faces. However, it remains to be seen who will return specifically. However, there are many possibilities. Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon, Carl Weathers’ Greef Carga, Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand, and Temuera Morrison’s Boba Fett all seem like reasonable options. There’s also the issue of Katee Sackhoff’s Bo-Katan, who has unfinished business with Mando, and Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano, who gets her spin-off series.
The Mandalorian Season 3 will lead to one Star Wars event series
The MandalorianIts success has spurred Disney and Lucasfilm to expand the scope of the Star Wars franchise on the small screen. Several spin-offs are currently under development, including Ahsoka, Rangers of the New Republic and The Book of Boba Fett. All these shows, as well The Mandalorian season 3, will eventually lead to a currently untitled Star Wars event series. Details regarding that event are currently under close scrutiny. But expect season 3 of the show to plant more seeds that will grow on the road in that case.
Shall The Mandalorian Season 3 is going to Mandalore?
The Darksaber changed hands again The Mandalorian season 2 finale. Because Din Moff defeated Gideon in combat, he became the rightful owner of the weapon. Still, Bo-Katan planned to defeat Moff Gideon herself so that she could become the rightful ruler of Mandalore. This created some tension between Mando and Bo-Katan that was not resolved. At the very least, we’ll likely pick up this thread in Season 3. If we allow some speculation, it seems plausible, if not likely, that we will actually visit Mandalore in the coming season. It would allow fans to explore the planet live and build on the ever-evolving knowledge surrounding Mandalorians.
The last Jedi‘s Rian Johnson wants an episode of The Mandalorian
The Mandalorian has enabled a diverse stable of directors to explore a galaxy far, far away. Dave Filoni finally got to try his hand in live action. Bryce Dallas Howard claimed herself to be a great directing talent, and Taika Waititi eventually got one Star Wars film after directing the Season 1 finale. Rian Johnson, who previously directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi, wants to direct an episode of the show, it turns out. Johnson is on deck to do a new trilogy of movies as well, although there has been little movement on that front for some time. As for directing an episode of Season 3, it could all come down to planning. Johnson is currently preparing to direct Knives out 2 and that could get in the way. But if they can fix it, Johnson may well be making his return to the franchise The Mandalorian.
The Razor Crest is destroyed, will Mando get a new ship?
As fans will likely recall, Mando’s trusty ship, the Razor Crest, was destroyed in Season 2. It was destroyed by the remains of the Empire. As such, it looks like the Razor Crest won’t be returning in Season 3. So that begs the question, will Din traverse the galaxy in a new ship? That remains to be seen. What we know for sure is that the now-iconic ship won’t be Mando’s ship of choice in the future unless rebuilt from scratch, basically making it the Razor Crest 2.0.
Will there be Wookiees The Mandalorian season 3?
This ventures into rumor territory, but reports have suggested that Wookiees will be taking part in the action in Season 3 of The Mandalorian. Quite a few iconic alien species have been featured on the show so far, so that would make sense. What remains unclear is what role the creatures would play. It’s also not clear if we’ll be seeing famous Wookiees like Chewbacca, although that seems unlikely. Maybe Mando is making a trip to Kashyyyk? Time will tell.
When does The Mandalorian season 3 start filming?
The Mandalorian season 3 is expected to begin filming this year. Especially because of the upcoming spin-offs The Book of Boba Fettproduction did not pick up as quickly as might be expected. The show is currently set to start production once in April The Book of Boba Fett has finished filming. Shooting is expected to take place in Los Angeles, California. Since the show uses an advanced soundstage surrounded by screens capable of projecting real-world environments known as The Volume, there is less need to travel for film purposes. For the most part, it can be done in one location.
What’s The Mandalorian Season 3 release date?
As The Book of Boba Fett arrives in December, The Mandalorian season 3 will not debut on Disney + in 2021. The first two seasons aired almost exactly one year apart. Disney will break that pattern for Season 3, however. The show is expected to arrive sometime in 2022.
When will The Mandalorian Is the season 3 trailer coming out?
The first trailer for The Mandalorian season 2 debuted about a month before the show returned to Disney +. Since Disney does a week-to-week release with most of its shows, there’s no need to release a trailer months in advance like you would with a Star Wars movie. As such, we can expect a trailer about a month or so before the show returns in 2022.
