In early 2023, The Mandalorian Season 3 awaits us in streaming on Disney+. In addition to the return of Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin and Grogu aka Baby Yoda, we can also expect an appearance by sci-fi legend Christopher Lloyd, who will make his debut in the “Star Wars” universe.
The Mandalorian: Trailer for Season 3
A first trailer for “The Mandalorian” season 3 was shown to the audience during D23 2022, which was also published online directly afterwards. Friends of the Mandalorians will have a lot of fun with the new season, because numerous silent helmet wearers meet on Mandalore.
The Mandalorian: When will season 3 start?
An official start date for “The Mandalorian” season 3 has not yet been set. Only the month has been announced, February 2023. A long wait, but before that “Star Wars” fans can enjoy “Star Wars: Andor”. There are more new “Star Wars” releases this year!
The Mandalorian Season 3: Storyline
Of course, there is no official synopsis for “The Mandalorian” season 3 yet. But the end of “The Book of Boba Fett” reshuffles the cards. So the separation of Grogu and Din Djarin at the end of “The Mandalorian” season 2 was only very short, because the two will be together again in season 3 already from the beginning.
For Din, it is a matter of washing himself clean of the shame of having taken off the helmet in the hot springs on the planet Mandalore. Extensive leaks on “The Mandalorian” season 3 further elaborate on the return to the planet Mandalore!
Wearing the dark sword makes Din Djarin the rightful leader of Mandalore. Actually, Mando wants to give the lightsaber to Bo-Katan, but she has to earn it through a battle. Who will become the ruler of Mandalore? We can expect a great juxtaposition of different Mandalorian clans on Mandalore.
The story of “Ahsoka” could also refer to the Mandalore storyline, so “The Mandalorian” and the two spin-offs would overlap in a big crossover.
The Mandalorian: Who will be in season 3?
The most famous newcomer to “The Mandalorian” Season 3 is “Back to the Future” star Christopher Lloyd. What role he will play has not been revealed yet. We assume that he will play the ancient leader of a Mandalorian clan.
A return of Pedro Pascal as Mando in season 3 is, of course, guaranteed. Giancarlo Esposito has already confirmed that he will return in “The Mandalorian” season 3 as the villain Moff Gideon. Katee Sackhoff will also be back as Bo-Katan Kryze.
The return of Carl Weathers as Greef Karga is also confirmed. Gina Carano will not return as Cara Dune. After a series of controversial social media posts, Carano was fired by production company Lucasfilm.
Since Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano will get her own series on Disney+, it is not clear if we will see her again in “The Mandalorian” season 3. However, a crossover between the series is certainly quite possible.
As for Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, it’s just as unclear as it is for Rosario Dawson whether they will return, as they will also get their own spin-off series in the form of “The Book of Boba Fett.”
Production on The Mandalorian Season 3: Filming is complete!
Filming on the third season of “The Mandalorian” started in September 2021 and should be completed by the end of March 2022. Just in time for the end of the month, filming is complete! Following the filming of “The Mandalorian” Season 3, “Star Wars: Ahsoka” has been filmed since April 2022.
Who will take a seat in the director’s chair for the individual episodes is not yet entirely clear. What is certain is that Carl Weathers, who already directed the fourth episode of season 2, will again take a seat in the director’s chair. Dave Filoni, Jon Favreau and Bryce Dallas Howard will also most likely return.
