Everyone knows when the following season of The Mandalorian will hit Disney Plus. In an announcement that received right here from the official Star Wars twitter account, Lucasfilm confirmed season 3, starring Pedro Pascal inside the title operate, will premiere on Mar. 1. There was no accompanying trailer, solely a brand new nonetheless image, nevertheless Disney launched a teaser for the model new season on the D23 Expo in September.
The Mandalorian’s season 2 finale on the tail end of 2020 appeared to close the e-book on the current we knew. By the final word scene, the Mandalorian and his pal Grogu found a semblance of closure of their race all through the galaxy as a consequence of a widely known face. In spite of everything, only a few lingering plot threads made a season 3 completely doable — what would Din Djarin do with that pesky Darksaber?
Then The Information of Boba Fett, nominally a showcase for Temura Morrison’s famed Star Wars bounty hunter, shocked many watchers by devoting a variety of episodes to Din Djarin — some with out a single look from Boba Fett himself. And episodes with lasting developments in Djarin’s story. Any Mandalorian fan who sits down for the current’s third season with out watching Boba Fett is signing up for many confusion.
By the highest of Fett, our Mandalorian had been exiled from his adopted sect for allowing others to see him with out his helmet, and after rather a lot deliberation about whether or not or not Grogu might be larger off as a Jedi or a Mandalorian, father and son have been reunited. Pretty the reversal from the finale of season 2!
With Information of Boba Fett airing its closing episode in February of 2022, it’s been a protracted wait with out an change on the adventures of Mando and Grogu. Critiques from April 2020 steered that work on The Mandalorian season 3 was already underway sooner than the season 2 premiere. As a result of current’s distinctive “stagecraft” experience, which allows the crew to shoot largely indoors in opposition to a rear-projected LED show display screen, the thought was that even by COVID-19 restrictions a model new season could stand up and working in time for a 2021 launch.
Nonetheless shortly after the season 2 finale premiere, Jon Favreau took to Good Morning America to clarify, barely, the Star Wars current rollout plans, which by then included Andor, Obi-Wan, Rangers of the New Republic, Ahsoka, and all of the issues else launched inside the infamous 2019 Star Wars TV current data dump.
Favreau talked about on the time that The Information of Boba Fett would debut in December of 2021 — he was correct! — and by then, the Star Wars crew would already be at work on The Mandalorian season 3 “once more with the first character that we’ve acknowledged and beloved.” Sources in the end confirmed that season 3 began capturing in October 2021.
With Lucasfilm juggling totally different large Disney Plus reveals this fall — like Andor, Tales of the Jedi and Willow, all sooner than The Unhealthy Batch season 2 premieres in January — that left Mando pushed out to 2023. Nonetheless whereas followers of The Mandalorian is also ravenous for one factor new, not lower than March is barely three months away.
